Three Hall of Famers

And Channel 17.

Oddly enough this card was found in a random lot of non-sports cards.

The Greatest

Lee Elia's rant turns 30 today.

Lee is now an assistant to Braves GM Frank Wren and thus no longer needs to rant about shitty ballclubs.

Heritage FrankenSet - Page 7

1954 design Barry Larkin with the red background is freakin' perfect. I'm also very happy that Marquis Grissom got the Center Square. The rest of the page was difficult though. The '57 page was absolutely dreadful and I'm lucky I was able to get Godzilla in the set.

Card #55 - Reggie Sanders
Reggie Sanders was a Brave for like 5 minutes and I can't for the life of me remember a damn thing he did so I'm moving on.

#56 - Hideki Matsui
Great gravy, this guy's rookie cards here hotter than Godzilla's radioactive laser breath when they came out. I think you can get 'em in dime boxes now. They're still cool though. At least as cool as this:

#57 - Brad Lidge
Ok, so Lidge gave up a few really, really high profile home runs. Ok so he flamed out like so many fireballing closers have. He'll have 2008 forever. There's a bunch of players who'd stomp on kittens while wearing cleats for a moment like that.

#58 - Conor Jackson
Another Diamondback. Somehow the FrankenSet became infested with snakes. I like snakes slightly more than Indiana Jones so this is distressing to me. I remember that Conor was a decent player but it looks like he retired after a short stint in Boston. In 2007 or 2008 I pulled a Conor Jackson relic out of Allen & Ginter. It was goofed up though, the mini card was wedged in between the bottom frame so I could actually slide the thing out if I nudged it a bit. I contemplated being evil and slipping out the relic and putting in one of my extra original A&G cards and making mad bank on eBay. My conscience got the better of me though and I didn't do it. I shall instead remain broke and keep both my integrity and a busted up relic.

#59 - Marquis Grissom
The Braves should have never traded Marquis away to the Indians. Never. Never ever. The second he left, there was a constant revolving door of malcontent outfielders wandering on and off our roster. Kenny Lofton, Reggie Sanders, BJ Surhoff, Gary Sheffield, JD Drew. Ok so some of those guys had great seasons for us, but they weren't Marquis Grissom. Yeah, fine, if we don't trade Justice and Grissom, we supposedly don't have the cash to keep Tom Glavine. We won soooo many championships with Tommy didn't we? Before he defected to the Mets that is and won all those rings in New York. Marquis caught the last out of the '96 World Series. Marquis shoulda been a Brave for life. As I'm lying on my deathbed still waiting for a second Braves championship that will never come I'll know it was The Curse of Marquis that got us all those years.

#60 - Larry Bowa
I would have remembered Larry as a scrappy infielder had he not had one really good year managing the Phillies. Now I remember him for being a flameout manager who is now a talking head. I miss the '80s.

#61 - Matt Clement
So I looked up Matt Clement on Baseball Reference to see where he was pitching now and he hasn't played an inning since 2006.

Jesus Christ how fucking old am I???

#62 - Barry Larkin
Hall of Famer in the hizzouse! Reds legend with the red background. I will always remember his 1995 MVP season where his Reds got absolutely schooled by the Braves in the playoffs on their way to a title.

#63 - Ryan Freel
Ending the page on a sad note. RIP Ryan.

I'll try to post the next page before the All-Star break but no promises

Joy of a completed team set - 1992 Topps Atlanta Braves

Last week kinda sucked, let's make this a better one. Here's a 1992 Topps Braves team set. I was missing Otis Nixon but I scrounged it from my 2nd 1992 set and put this one to bed. Thankfully, there were no Traded cards for the Braves in '92 or this would be incomplete like a half dozen other of my team sets from 20-30 years ago. Enjoy.

Joy of a completed Team Set - 1986 Topps Atlanta Braves

I can't write worth a flip right now even though I have a dozen posts all scanned and uploaded and ready to go once I think of some words. I am good at sorting and cataloging and scanning though. My 1986-2013 Topps Braves sets are finally in order after years of procrastination. Sadly, this is the only completed set of the bunch. Traded cards are my nemesis right now. At least I can knock this set off the wantlist. Enjoy the junk wax!

Topps Heritage Braves Team Checklists

While trying to get my Topps Heritage Braves team binder together I checked a whole lot of online checklists to figure out what I actually needed. I learned a lot from my research - that all online checklists should be taken with a grain of salt. Especially this one. I gave up trying to confirm everything after about 2006 because apparently no one has any clue what team anyone else is on if the card is short printed. I never know Tony Gwynn played for the Orioles... I'm still trying to find all my Braves to fill out my binder so I can do a wantlist but in the meantime here's the unedited lists for your listing needs. I included black backs variations and non-super-short-printed variations but not impossible variations or Target black front variations because I am lazy. Perhaps one day I will be unlazied and add all that crap along with the inserts. Probably not.

i have no words for the joy i feel

Monday, April 8, 2013

One week down, twenty-five to go

Braves are playing hard at 6-1.

No More Parties

But the bass goes on.

Saturday, April 6, 2013

Eighty dolls yelling "Small girl after all"

Who was at the DuPont Pavilion?

Why was the bench still warm?

 Who had been there?

Heritage Frankenset - Page 6

Confession - You have no idea how close I came to putting ALL the Chippers in the Frankenset. The one I wanted to put in most was the '57 design, but it turns out I didn't actually have it. So the '52 had to do. The bottom row of this one filled in almost instantly, leaving me to struggle with filling out the rest of the page.

Card #46 - Joel Zumaya
I've never played Guitar Hero. Too scared. That'll mess up your arm something fierce. Oh wait, no, throwing balls-out on every single pitch ever will mess up your arm. It sure did work in 2006 though.

#47 - Adrian Beltre
This guy has been playing abso-freaking-lutely forEVER and he's still only 34. I remember seeing rookie inserts for Adrian all over the dang place in the late '90s and he's still producing. I still think of Adrian as a Dodger most of the time. He had that crazy 48-homer year for the Dodgers in 2004 but did you know he came in third to Miggy and Trout in the AL MVP voting last year? I know 34 years old now is a lot different from 34 years old a decade ago but Adrian's starting to creep into some elite territory.

#48 - Zach Day
A National. Ugh, I hate Nationals. Why couldn't this card have had him as an Expo. He actually pitched decently as an Expo. I blame Bud Selig.

#49 Doug Davis
Cancer survivor who plugged away with that left arm of his for a long time. Doug pitched for AAA Omaha last year but I'm not sure if he made any clubs for 2013. I can't pick him up in my fantasy league so Doug may have retired.

#50 Juan Cruz
I attracted Juan Cruz insert cards like a magnet in the early aughts and ended up pulling three or four pretty good ones out of packs when we was a Cub. Then the Cubs traded Juan to the Braves were he had a fantastic season out of the bullpen. He then got flipped to the A's for Tim Hudson and I completely forgot about Juan Cruz. He was released by the Pirates in August last year and I can't find him on any other roster. I'll always have that handful of Cubbie Cruz inserts stashed away in a box of Braves cards though.

#51 - Chad Cordero
ARGH Nationals. At least Cordero was a legit pitcher unlike Day. Made an All-Star team and everything! I don't know where the heck Topps gets some of their photographs though. Did the photographer ask Chad to do his best Larry Sellers impersonation?

#52 - Chipper Jones
While I am very sad that Chipper is not playing third for Atlanta anymore holy fraking crap is it fun seeing him tweet a bunch of crazy crap during Braves games like the rest of us slobs.

#53 - Miguel Cabrera
All right stat geeks, I'm gonna say this once and only once and if you just don't get it then I can't help you. Mike Trout had an awesome year in 2012. An incredible year. An All-Timer year. People are going to be talking about his rookie season decades from now. Here's the thing though: Miguel Cabrera also had an incredible year in 2012. AND he did something that no other player has done in my LIFETIME and I ain't no spring chicken. Something that has been considered one of the greatest individual achievements possible in the sport for over a CENTURY. AND he's been performing at a very high level in the majors for a DECADE. MVP? Miguel Cabrera has paid his dues. He EARNED that shit. Mike Trout earned the Rookie of the Year and will very likely earn his own MVP if not multiple MVPs if he stays healthy. Cabrera over Trout will probably end up being a great topic of baseball discussion for years to come, like the Joe DiMaggio/Ted Williams MVP battles. But if certain devotees of the WAR keep acting like Miggy over Trout was a travesty worse than Terry Pendleton over Barry Bonds or Marty Marion over Stan Musial then people are going to completely tune you and your formulas out. There is more to baseball than just numbers. Just throwing that out there.

#54 - Mo Vaughn
Is is just me or has every big slugger who jumped ship and signed a big deal with another team immediately gotten zapped by the baseball gods for their disloyalty? Trades like Frank Robinson or Mark McGwire don't count. I'm sure someone out there signed a massive contract for a team other than the team they are most associated with and had success but I'm drawing a blank. And then there's poor Mo Vaughn, struck down by the lack of a guardrail in his prime. And THEN the poor guy got traded to the Mets. The baseball gods may have been a little extra cruel in this case.

I'd like to take a moment to thank all of the sensible stat geeks out there for being sensible. Thank you, sensible stat geeks. You know who you are.

Tonight made me sad, so here's some happy

Stupid Cliff Lee. Why didn't it rain longer. Oh well, here's a happy card from Captain Canuck:

Oh hello there Chipper Jones rookie. Let us flip you over and bask in the glory of your DeLand, Florida high school statistics.

Mon Dieu! IZ FRENCH! What is this Canadian witchery??? Oh wait, it's on O-Pee-Chee card! Hooray! that's one of the only Chipper rookies I didn't have already! This might be my first 1991 O-Pee-Chee card period, actually. You don't see them down here much, unless you're talking about the massively overproduced 1991 O-Pee-Chee Premier set. I feel much happier already, don't you? This is actually not even the best card in that package from Canuck, but that's a story for another post...

Wednesday, April 3, 2013

Welcome to the Show, Evan


If anyone has one or two of these things lying around, please let me know.

Heritage FrankenSet - Page 5

This page was easy as hell to put together. Crazy Eyes Zito was a lead pipe lock as it's probably by favorite card from the '03 set. The two New York Legends were also No Brainers. Fat Panda rookie card? Yes, please. Shane Victorino looks like he just can't believe that this page was so easy. Writing this post was not so easy as evident by how long I put it off.

Card #37 - David Wright
All right, confession time: I know I'm supposed to hate the Mets and all, and Wright did steal the spotlight from Chipper a few times as the premiere 3rd baseman in the NL East, but... Ok I kinda think Wright is damn fine ballplayer. I don't even mind he's a Met lifer. They deserve one good player. Still can't stand those stupid Topps of the Class cards that were in every damn pack in 2008 though.

#38 - Mark Reynolds
Remember the Cadaco All-Star Baseball game? The one with the player discs and you use a spinner to determine if it's a hit or an out? Mark Reynolds' disc looks like Pac-Man. The mouth is a home run and everything else is a strikeout.

#39 - Mariano Rivera
Best Closer Ever. Now with the Saves record. I sure hope this doesn't give the BBWAA an excuse to ignore Trevor Hoffman when he's eligible in a few years. Oh wait, The BBWAA is going to ignore EVERYBODY from now on because they can't get their goddamn act together. In less 'grudge I harp on about every couple months' news, I had the chance to have Craig Kimbrel and Mo as my closers on my fantasy team but I blew it when I went with Jim Johnson instead. I kinda regret it a little bit, but then again the Orioles are probably going to have way more save opportunities this year.

#40 Barry Zito
As far as I'm concerned Barry Zito with the Zoolander stare is the most iconic card in the '03 Heritage set. It's the first one I think of anyway. I just won a Cy Young say whaaaaaat? And you can say whatever you want about that contract but he pitched his ass off in the playoffs last year and he's got two Rings with the Giants. Tim Hudson ain't got no rings and that rat bastard Posey was out.

#41 - Reed Johnson
Stealth Brave in the middle of the page. Thank God Ryan Dempster didn't want to come here last year. Instead we got Reed and Paul Maholm and flipped the guy we were going to send to the Cubs for J-Up. Who kinda stole Reed's left field job, but hey, right handed bat off the bench is a perfectly respectable profession.

#42 - Pablo Sandoval
I don't know who made this, but I love you.

#43 - Scott Brosius
Third baseman for the New York Yankees. Scott has three rings, A-Rod has one.


#44 - Jimmy Haynes
That guy you picked in your fantasy draft when you realized that you had 8 outfielders all capable of hitting 25 home runs but only three pitchers and two of those were closers. Also from LaGrange Georgia! Troup County representin'! And yet another player who is the same age as me and hasn't played a major league game in almost nine years. (cries)

#45 - Shane Victorino
A gigantic friggin' pain in the ass who beat the ever living snot out of my Braves every dang chance he got and almost murdered Brian McCann once that dirty so-and-so. You have no idea how happy I am that he has been exiled to the American League so I don't have to see him all year long. Thanks, Boston!

Y'all aren't yelling at me when I slack off on posting these things so if the next page comes out in May it's all your fault.

Happy Real Opening Day

Braves vs. Phillies.

Hello Baseball.
