CLEANING UP ONLINE DIME BOX CARD PURCHASES 3/4

 I WARNED YOU ABOUT HIPPOS BRO!


I TOLD YOU DOG!*

OK TIME FOR MORE CARDS


LAST SCRATCH OFF CARD. LET'S WIN THAT GRAND PRIZE

1998 UPPER DECK ANASTASIA 3D BAT LUST


SO MOST OF YOU SHOULD KNOW BY NOW THAT I HAVE A LOT OF NON SPORTS CARDS. TOO MANY IF WE ARE BEING HONEST. WHILE I LIKE THE ART CARDS AND DINOSAUR CARDS AND MONSTER CARDS AND WHATNOT I REALLY HAVE NO USE FOR A BUNCH OF CRAP LIKE CHARMED AND 24 AND A BUNCH OF DISNEY STUFF. ONE THING I AM COLLECTING THAT YOU WOULD NOT EXPECT IS THE 1998 ANASTASIA SET. I HAVE NEVER SEEN THE FILM AND HAVE NO INTEREST. BUT ANASTASIA CARDS WERE PRINTED ON THE SAME PRESS AS 1990 UPPER DECK AND ABOUT AS MANY WERE PRINTED. THERE ARE TONS OF THESE OUT THERE AND ANY RANDOM LOT OF NON-SPORTS CRAP WILL HAVE SOME PACKS IF NOT BOXES. IF NOT CASES. AS A RESULT I HAVE MOST OF THE SET AND AM ONLY MISSING A FEW SHORT PRINTS LIKE THIS LENTICULAR CARD FEATURING  TWO BATS MAKING OUT


NO INSERTS IN THIS SET, THE DIE CUTS AND PUZZLE CARDS AND LENTICULARS ARE PART OF THE SET. I HAD NO LENTICULARS SO NOW I HAVE ONE. WHY NOT? BATS ARE GREAT

1990-91 FLEER DENNIS RODMAN


1990-91 FLEER SET IS COMPLETE! EXCEPT FOR ALL STARS. AND MAYBE ROOKIE SENSATIONS. DID THEY DO THOSE THAT YEAR? THIS WAS THE SET WHERE FLEER BASKETBALL BROKE OUT AND BASKETBALL CARDS WERE FINALLY ABLE TO BE FOUND EVERYWHERE. I HAD BEEN BUYING PACKS AND BOXES SINCE 86 BUT I AM A WEIRDO. AS A RESULT THE SET IS KIND OF JUNK WAXY NOW BUT I STILL LIKE IT. I THINK THIS MAKES THE 5TH COMPLETE FLEER BASKETBALL SET FOR ME AND I'M STILL LOOKING TO MAKE IT MORE

2014 GOLDEN AGE RABBIT MARANVILLE MINI


RABBIT MARANVILLE IS A POSTER CHILD FOR SNOBBY 'EW THERE ARE A LOT OF TERRIBLE PLAYERS IN THE HALL OF FAME' BUT SCREW ANYONE WITH THAT ATTITUDE. DUDE PLAYED 23 SEASONS, WON THE WORLD SERIES, HAD A LATE CAREER RESURGENCE WITH SOME SUPER SHITTY BRAVES TEAMS AND HAS A HALL OF FAME NAME


GOLDEN AGE CAME IN RELATIVELY LATE IN THE RETRO MINIS GAME AND GOT STUCK WITH THE MONO CIGARETTE BRAND WHICH I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF BEFORE. HERE'S A GOOD ARTICLE FROM NET 54 TO GET YOU UP TO SPEED. IF YOU ARE A NON-CLICKER BASICALLY IT'S A SUPER RARE PACIFIC COAST LEAGUE SET WITH A BUNCH OF RANDOM ACTRESSES IN IT. I DON'T HAVE MANY GOLDEN AGE MINIS, I WONDER WHAT OTHER ODDBALL HIPSTER BRANDS THEY USED ON THE BACK

YO MOMMA 2008 JOEY VOTTO


LOTTA YO MOMMA CARDS FROM HERE ON OUT. HERE'S A REPRINT FROM A CARD FROM TWO YEARS EARLIER FROM THE SET IT WAS INSERTED IN. A LOT OF CARDS CHOSEN FROM THE PREVIOUS DECADE FOR THIS SET HAVE ENDED UP BEING DUBIOUS CHOICES BUT JOEY VOTTO ROOKIE IS LEGIT. IF/WHEN TOPPS MINES THIS GIMMICK FOR ANOTHER REPRINT SET IN THE FUTURE I WILL NOT BE SURPRISED TO SEE JOEY ROOKIE AGAIN

DID I WIN A MAJOR AWARD???


NO! INCOMPLETE PASS. FOOTBALL FAIL

2016 TOPPS WRIGLEY FIELD JASON HEYWARD


HEYWARD INSERT FOR A DIME! I DON'T THINK THERE ARE ANY MORE OF THOSE LEFT BUT I MAY BE WRONG. THE JERSEY-TIE COMBO AND PLASTIC IVY IS ADORABLE

YO MOMMA 2007 UBALDO JIMENEZ


WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED TO UBALDO JIMENEZ? THIS WAS A GOOD CHOICE FOR 2010 AS JIMENEZ HAD A FANTASTIC YEAR FOR THE ROCKIES BUT THEN HE GOT TRADED TO CLEVELAND AND THE WHEELS CAME OFF. PITCHING IS TOUGH, MAN

SOME DAMN YEAR AND SET GARBAGE PAIL KIDS FREAKY FRANK


TOP TEN ALL-TIME GARBAGE PAIL KID. THERE WERE (ARE?) A LOT OF CARDS FROM SOME GPK MUSIC THEMED SET ON THE SITE AND I GOOGLED A BUNCH OF THEM TO SEE WHO THEY WERE, THEN FOUND FREAKY FRANK AND WAS LIKE NOPE, THIS IS THE ONE FOR ME. DON'T EAT THAT YELLOW SNOW CONE KIDS

YO MOMMA 2003 FUTURE STARS JOSH HAMILTON & CARL CRAWFORD


REGULAR MVP AND ALL STAR MVP ON A FUTURE STARS CARD AND I BET THE ACTUAL CARD IS ALSO IN DIME BOXES OR WORSE. DOESN'T HELP THAT THEIR ACTUAL TOPPS ROOKIE CARDS ARE FROM THE 1999 TRADED SET. AND HAMILTON HAS AN ACTUAL RC LOGO CARD FROM 2007. AND THE FIRST RESULT FOR 'PEOPLE ALSO ASK' WHEN GOOGLING HAMILTON IS 'WHAT HAPPENED TO JOSH HAMILTON'. AND YOU DON'T FEEL GOOD AFTER CLICKING THAT LINK. CARL CRAWFORD PULLING AN ANDRUW JONES AFTER SIGNING A CONTRACT WITH THE DODGERS DOESN'T SEEM SO BAD

YO MOMMA 2009 DAVID PRICE


ANOTHER EXCELLENT CHOICE IN RETROSPECT. CY YOUNG AWARD, GOT A RING, HAS MOSTLY BEEN AN EXCELLENT PITCHER THROUGHOUT HIS CAREER. HE HAS SOME INJURY PROBLEMS AND BOSTON FANS HATED HIM FOR A WHILE BECAUSE BOSTON FANS, BUT C'MON. HE'S GOT 150 WINS IN AN ERA WHERE THAT'S A BORDERLINE RIDICULOUS NUMBER

YO MOMMA 1953 JOHN PODRES

NICE CARD TO FINISH UP THE FIRST BATCH OF CANADIAN CARDS. CAN'T GO WRONG WITH A '53 BROOKLYN DODGER. THIS IS ALSO A HIGH NUMBER SHORT PRINT AND THE ORIGINAL BACK VERSION MIGHT END UP IN MY 53 BINDER IF I CAN FIND IT BECAUSE I WILL CERTAINLY NEVER BE ABLE TO AFFORD THE ORIGINAL EVER AGAIN

*GO READ HOMESTUCK. IT'S ONLY ABOUT EIGHT BILLION PAGES LONG AND STILL SOMEHOW WORKS EVEN AFTER FLASH WAS MURDERED

NO REALLY, IT'S FUN

The Price rc is a really nice find. I watched Anastasia a long time ago. Can't remember the fine details of the film, but it made me interested in reading up on Rasputin.
