3+ years later... an update!

Hey Guys!  Just a short update since I've neglected this blog since April, 2010.

I've actually started a trading card company called Viceroy Cards.  We've been in business now for a couple years, and things are going really well!  It's interesting to say the least being on the other side of things, but I'm enjoying it greatly.

You can visit either ViceroyCards.com, facebook.com/viceroycardco , or search for us on Blowout Cards, Blowout Cards Forums, eBay and other various sources.

I may start a separate blog detailing the experience of owning a niche trading card company, and I'll post an update here if I do.

Thanks and sorry I've neglected this blog... I've been a little busy!

Card Collectors Fantasy Baseball League Week 1 Award Pack Rip!

So after the first week of the Card Collectors Fantasy Baseball League on Yahoo Fantasy, I'm in 5th place with a 6-3-1 record. Not a bad start, but even better is that I won the week 1 showdown with Birth of the Cool/Tunguska over at Long Fly Ball to Because, which entitled me to an award pack! It happened to be a 2008 A&G... and here's what I got!


A really nice hit, much more than I was expecting! Thanks again for the pack! :)

Selling or Trading my Daequan Cook Collection!

I'm parting with my Daequan Cook PC. 82 cards total, 65 auto's with the rest being mostly patch, jersey, parallels, etc.

If you're interested, or know anyone who might be, please let me know. Will either sell or trade as a lot. If trade, I'd really prefer just 1-10 really nice cards in return. Trying to thin out my overall collection. Thanks!

I have an other blog!

So I realize I haven't posted here in quite a while, turns out I've been in a bit of a card funk lately, with nothing really peaking my interest in the card collecting world.

I do however enjoy blogging, so I've made another blog in a different genre: Thrifting. Please visit it, if you so choose!

Thrifting Vegas

Thanks!

Trades from a Bearded Man

Fellow blogger Beardy was kind enough to send me these sweet sweet cards in exchange for some O's cards, and since I'm no longer on hiatus I thought I'd show them off.


Johnny Cueto TTT patch auto 71/75. What an awesome card. Sticker auto, yes... but I still love it.


The bat piece on this card looks as if it were pulled from a fire. A fire caused by a BIG RED MACHINE. See what I did there?


This is officially the oldest card I've ever owned. 1931 Play Ball - Harry Francis Craft card #65. Still in great shape too!

Beardy sent many other cards, so if you get a chance to trade with him, go for it... he's very generous!

Happy New Year!

Happy 2010 everyone!

The last few months of 2009 have been packed with card-related posts from me, all very interesting and news-worthy. Unfortunately, I've been posting constantly day after day and getting no replies. Turns out, I had changed the post date to Oct/Nov/Dec 2010, so all of my posts were just put in limbo. Sorry about that. ;) It's all fixed now, promise.

Box Break - 2009 Topps Chrome Football Hobby Box.


I went to my local card shop yesterday, and picked up a box of 2009 Topps Chrome Football for $50. Not a bad deal... and while I did not pull anything great I must say I still enjoy the set very much. Great photography and as always the chrome and refractors just look so cool. My only hit of note was a Mark Sanchez RC, as my auto was no one of interest.
