Check your Ebay Account - $25 Coupon

Word on Twitter tonight was that SOME Ebay accounts (not all) were getting a coupon for $25 off a $25 purchase (before shipping + tax).  

Coupon Code is : HAPPY25

Put some item in your cart (over $25) and enter that code to check if it works before you fuss over this too much.  

I checked my account and it happened to work.  Picked up some 2011 Allen and Ginter inserts, a 2019 Kurt Warner jersey card, and two cookbooks that my wife wanted.  Total of $28 for goods + $6 shipping + $1 tax - $25 coupon = 10 bucks for everything out-of-pocket.  

You could sort by Buy-It-Now, Free Shipping, and limit it to $25+, and you might only be paying a little bit for sales tax if you see something you like.  Enjoy the hunt!  Let me know if it works or doesn't work for you!

Is it Football Season Yet?

 


I have done a pretty good job of staying AWAY from the Ebay during quarantine, but during a little browsing the other night, this caught my eye.  It's got TWO Iowa State guys in Montgomery and Butler, so this fits my collection quite nicely.  Montgomery had a decent rookie season for the Bears, and Butler got hurt in camp and missed the whole thing.  He is ready to show this year that he was worth that 4th round selection.  

This one is #/25 and has two jersey pieces.  The Montgomery is from the shoulder stripe, while the Butler is a patch corner.  Shipped it was well under $10, so I consider that a much better purchase than buying a box of NT and hoping for some Cyclones.  

Question:  Do you have any cards that show two (or more) of your player collections on one card?

I've got cards coming out the wazoo!

*If cards continue out the wazoo for more than four hours, please consult your physician.

But seriously, people out there have been really generous lately. Like, shockingly generous (if that is possible).  Stuff is just showing up out of nowhere.  I needed to acknowledge them and figured I would combine them into a mega-generosity post (as is the style of the time). 

First cards up, Jon from Pennysleeves hit me up with these two -- I had requested the Stenerud from him, but he knew of my collection of (and affection for) Korver and tossed in the Prizm parallel.  Mega props to Jon!


Next up is Madding from Cards on Cards.  He had offered up spots in his recent break of "Topps of the Class", and I was happy to get the Ryan O'Hearn from that set.  However, his envelope included several other awesome (and shiny!) Royals cards for me.  Merci!


Third up is a completely unexpected envelope from an awesome guy on TDCB, avsbruins65.  He sent me a FAT PWE and inside was a nice letter thanking me for being part of the card community and a whole bunch of Random cards from my wantlist -- a full page, double-sided.  I loved all of these, but I'd have to say my favorites were Buck O'Neil and the Tim Blackwell minor league manager card.  That is a mustache for the ages, ladies and gentlemen.  Major thanks to avsbruins65 for his kind words and generosity.


I also have a page of scanned pictures (space cards, Salvador Perez, MLK) that were sent to me some time ago that I intended to turn into a post, then never did.  I think they might have been from Night Owl or Colbey, but I honestly can't remember.  Sorry. Thank you to whoever it was.  The coronatide months have not been great for me -- my work this spring was more stressful than it has ever been in my 10+ years at my company.  Luckily, the worst of that is over and I am starting a new job in two weeks.  Hopefully my energy for blogging and card trades will improve from here on out.

For those still reading this, and not just scanning through for pretty pictures, here's a little easter egg for you.  The rest of the cards below here in the post are up for grabs.  A true pile of randoms.  It's free stuff Thursday (yes, that's a thing).  Claim in the comments.  I will send these out as PWE, so please email me your address if you make a claim.  I'll set the max at six cards apiece (or four cards + one jersey) just so I know they'll travel on one stamp. Hopefully there is something in this stack you need.   I still owe some of you cards I've promised, and I'm working on those, too.  So long, until we meet again!

This Klutz Has Utz


Utz is a Pennsylvania-based snack company.  I have no idea what their stuff tastes like (do any of you?), but I hope they stay in business because they have the only Food-Issue card set this year

Now, I didn't think I would be seeing these in stores on the West Coast, so I had to find another way to get my hands on some of these.  Luckily, I found another trader on TCDB who had two Royals that I needed.  We were able to work out a slightly bigger trade (I sent him a few Ginter SPs and base) and these arrived in my mailbox.  I love them!  Food oddballs are the best oddballs!

He has a lot more, if you still need some of these.  I am still looking for the Whit Merrifield (#7) and Ryan O'Hearn (#99) cards if anyone happens to have those available. 

Question:  What food or drink company would you most like to see issue a set of branded baseball cards?  What I wouldn't give for a set of In-N-Out Burger cards...
