CLEANING UP ONLINE DIME BOX CARD PURCHASES 1/4

SO MY NEXT COMC PICKUP FEATURES A GIANT ANGRY OUT OF CONTROL MONSTER WRECKING A CITY AND THAT SEEMS A BIT TOO ON THE NOSE TO POST AT THE MOMENT SO I WILL SHIFT GEARS AND DO SOME MORE BASEBALLCARDSTORECA POSTS. I JUST BOUGHT ANOTHER BATCH INCLUDING A COUPLE OF THE 15 RANDOM CARDS FOR A BUCK PACKS THEY HAVE NOW SO MAYBE I CAN BURN THROUGH ALL THESE CARDS BEFORE THE NEW PACKAGE ARRIVES


MOAR POINTS! I'LL SAVE UP ENOUGH FOR THE ZUBAZ ASSLESS CHAPS IN NO TIME 


SPEAKING OF SAVING UP. A MINI CARD GOT MISPLACED SO I GOT A REFUND. THIS IS COMPLETELY UNDERSTANDABLE, THOSE MINIS GET LOST EASY. THIS WOULD INFURIATE MANY PEOPLE BUT I AM UTTERLY DELIGHTED. TAPING A DIME TO AN INDEX CARD IS THE TYPE OF PERSONAL SERVICE WE NO LONGER GET IN ONLINE TRANSACTIONS. I AM GOING TO SAVE THIS DIME JUST LIKE DANNY DEVITO'S CHARACTER IN THROW MOMMA FROM THE TRAIN SAVED ALL THE CHANGE HE GOT WHEN GOING ON OUTINGS WITH HIS FATHER


MOAR MESUT OZIL CARDS FOR ME. MESUT'S TIME AT ARSENAL IS QUICKLY COMING TO AN END, BUT WE'LL ALWAYS HAVE ALL THOSE FA CUP TITLES. MESUT HAS EXPRESSED AN INTEREST IN PLAYING A FENERBAHCE OR IN THE US SO MY DREAM OF HIM COMING TO PLAY AT ATLANTA UNITED IS STILL ALIVE. IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN, UNITED'S M.O. IS TO SNAG PROMISING YOUNG PLAYERS FROM SOUTH AMERICA IN HOPES THEY CAN SELL THEM TO EUROPE FOR A PROFIT AFTER A YEAR OR TWO BUT I WILL CONTINUE TO DREAM UNTIL D.C. UNITED SIGNS HIM AND I CRY FOREVER


HERE'S TWO SHINY CHROMEY CARDS OF MESUT ON THE GERMAN NATIONAL TEAM. FUN FACT: HERE IS THE BREAKDOWN OF TOTAL CARDS BOUGHT IN MY UPCOMING 10cCA PACKAGE:

BASEBALL: 44
BASKETBALL: 50
AMERICAN FOOTBALL: 9
NON-SPORTS:57
PROPER FOOTBALL: 0

THERE ARE MULTIPLE REASONS FOR THIS BUT IT MAINLY COMES DOWN TO 3 THINGS: HARDLY ANY MLS CARDS AND ZERO ATLANTA UNITED. THE ONLY SEARCH RESULTS FOR ARSENAL ARE FOR STAR TREK AND PUNISHER CARDS. I'VE ALREADY WIPED OUT THE OZIL CARDS. AT SOME POINT I MAY PULL UP AN ARSENAL ROSTER LIST FROM 1990-2020 AND DO A SEARCH ON EVERY PLAYER BUT THAT DAY IS NOT TODAY


ALL THESE WORLDS ARE YOURS, EXCEPT EUROPA. ATTEMPT NO LANDING THERE

JOKE'S ON YOU LOOMING MONOLITH, I GOT EUROPA

AND UM, ANOTHER EUROPA

THAT WAS ALREADY IN THE BINDER

DOUBLE EUROPA, FUCK YOU MONOLITH



BEHOLD: THE EXACT MOMENT TOPPS FLAGSHIP TURNED TO THE DARK SIDE. CARDINALS. BLECCH

ON THE OTHER HAND IT'S A HEYWARD CARD THAT WAS NOT IN MY BINDER BUT IS NOW IN MY BINDER. YAY CARDS

DOING THE POINTS SCRATCH OFF CARD NOW BECAUSE I HAD A BACK IMAGE FOR ONE OF THE OZIL CARDS AND I TRIED TO DRAG IT TO WHERE IT WAS SUPPOSED TO GO AND BLOGGER STRAIGHT UP ATE THE DAMN THING. I'M NOT SACRIFICING ANYMORE IMAGES TO THIS DEMONIC WEBSITE. NOW WHERE'S MY COIN


EXTRA POINT! 39,999 MORE OF THESE AND I CAN AFFORD THE PRO LINE BRANDED NIPPLE CLAMPS. HOORAY!


BELA LUGOSI!!!!
AND SOME OTHER GUY. OK OK ALAN LADD WAS IN SOME GOOD NOIRS AND WESTERNS BUT WHO GIVES A SHIT THIS BLOG STANS LUGOSI. THIS CARD IS FROM THE 2015 PANINI AMERICANA SET THAT I ACCIDENTALLY COLLECTED BECAUSE FULL HOBBY PACKS ENDED UP AT DOLLAR TREE FOR A BUCK A PIECE A FEW YEARS BACK. THERE ARE A FEW BELA CARDS FROM THAT SET, ALL INSERTS UNFORTUNATELY, BUT I MANAGED TO PULL ANOTHER VARIATION ON THIS CARD WITH BELA AND AN ACTRESS AND THAT MADE ME UNREASONABLY HAPPY. THIS CARD SQUASHED LUGOSI AND LADD TOGETHER BECAUSE THEY BOTH APPEARED IN THE 1941 FILM THE BLACK CAT. I DON'T RECALL EVER SEEING IT AND THE SUMMARIZATION OF THE PLOT ONLINE MOSTLY CONSISTS OF 'YET ANOTHER SPOOKY OLD HOUSE FILM' SO MAYBE I SHOULD CHECK THIS OUT. WAIT, IT ALSO HAS BASIL RATHBONE? SIGN ME THE FUCK UP


HERE WE GO WITH THE FLOOD OF 2010 YO MOMMA INSERT CARDS I BOUGHT. I ACTUALLY FOUND TWO MORE CARDS FROM THIS SET I NEEDED WHEN I GOT MY MOST RECENT BATCH. I'LL BE COLLECTING THESE REPRINT CARDS UNTIL MY DEATH. IF I EVER COMPLETE ONE OF THE SETS I  MIGHT DIE OF SHOCK. I MAKE SNARKY JOKES BUT THIS 1003 FRANK THOMAS CARD IS SO BEAUTIFUL I MIGHT JUST STARE AT IT THE REST OF THE DAY. THE BRAVES WILL ALWAYS BE MY FAVORITE BUT BIG FRANK AND CARDS LIKE THIS IS WHY THE WHITE SOX WAS MY SIDE PIECE IN THE 90S


YO MOMMA ROOKIE REPRINT CARD OF BARRY ZITO AND BEN SHEETS. YET ANOTHER ONE OF THESE REPRINTS I NEEDED FOR THE SET WHILE HAVING MULTIPLE DOUBLES OF THE ACTUAL FUCKING CARD. WHEN THIS CARD HIT THE CHECKLIST IN 2009-EARLY 2010 IT WAS PROBABLY STILL A POTENTIAL DOUBLE HALL OF FAMER ROOKIE CARD BUT THINGS WENT SOUTH QUICK. BUT IN 2012 ZITO GOT A RING AND BEN SHEETS BECAME A BRAVES LEGEND SO FUCK HALL OF FAMERS. HALL OF VERY GOOD IS WAY MORE INTERESTING ANYWAY


REPRINT OF THE FIRST CARD FROM THE 1980 TOPPS SET I FINALLY COMPLETED LAST YEAR THANKS TO CARDBOARD ICONS. EVERY TIME I MENTION 1980 TOPPS I WILL BE THANKING CARDBOARD ICONS FOR SENDING ME THAT GODDAMNED OVERPRICED NOLAN FUCKING RYAN CARD SO GET USED TO IT. NIGHT OWL JUST PLACED THIS CARD ON HIS TOP 100 80S CARD LIST AND HE IS RIGHT. SPLIT SCREEN HALL OF FAMERS ARE DOPE. YES I KNOW WHAT I JUST SAID IN THE LAST PARAGRAPH, I'M A FUCKIGN HYPOCRITE HAVEN'T YOU NOTICED YET


WHEW! A BREAK FROM REPRINTS! I LIKE DONRUSS, MOSTLY BECAUSE THEY HAVE SOME REALLY WILD INSERT CARDS. TOPPS HASN'T BEEN MAKING INSERTS LIKE THESE RECENTLY. 3D EMBOSSED SPOT GLOSSED PITCHERS LITERALLY SMASHING THROUGH A BRICK WALL. I ALREADY HAD THIS CARD BUT I HAD TO HAVE IT AGAIN BECAUSE I LOVE IT. KRIS MEDLEN IS ONE OF THOSE PLAYERS WHO IS NOT QUITE ON THE CHIPPER/HEYWARD/HORFORD/LEMKE/TUGGLE LEVEL WHERE I GRAB EVERY SINGLE CARD I CAN FIND AND PUT THEM IN BINDERS BUT IF I EVER FINALLY COLLECT EVERY SINGLE LEMKE CARD EVER MEDS MIGHT GET PROMOTED TO THAT LIST. I'M STILL SAD MEDLEN'S CAREER GOT DERAILED BY INJURY BUT I'LL ALWAYS HAVE THAT GAME WHERE HE SHOVED THE BATS STRAIGHT UP WASHINGTON'S ASS

HERE'S HOPING FOR MORE FUN IMAGINARY MONSTERS INSTEAD OF REAL, VICIOUS, DANGEROUS MONSTERS IN THE NEAR FUTURE

I'm tempted to grab a few more of those 15 cards for a buck packs too. I did pretty well with the one I recently purchased.
