So here we go....the first (annual)
Jaybarker Fan's Junk MEGA POST
First package was one of his PWE BOMBs.
The second package was from one of his card drafts.
I used my first pick on this Jay Buhner relic. Not really sure why, but it was neat. :-) Anyone want it? It's for trade.
Next, I picked up a few vintage Royals. I'd never heard of Billy Sorrell, but that didn't stop me from pulling the trigger. One of the nice things about cheering for a team that has only been around since 1969 is that you don't have to get bogged-down with all the old players from before you were born. Just think if you were a team collector of the Yankees or Cubs. You'd have to be on the lookout for everything starting with the turn-o'-the-century. Not my problem. I can mostly stick with the '70s and up.
TEBOW! I'm pretty sure JBF just threw this one into the draft pile since he knew I would jump on it. Love me some Tebow.
Here's a few "Propaganda Posters" that I grabbed since I thought they looked cool. Any David Wright or Ichiro collectors need these? They're for trade.
Finally from this package, as my last pick I was able to grab a Rafael Palmeiro Pepsi card. On this one, Pepsi is claiming to be the "Flavor of Baseball." Call me crazy, but I always thought that the flavor of baseball was "Leather and Cork." I guess we'll agree to disagree on this one.
The penultimate package was ANOTHER PWE BOMB.
The last package is from the "Oddball Draft." Hey, I'm an oddball. I like math and wear glasses and goofy band T-shirts. I guess that means I should participate. Oh, it was Oddball CARDS? I misunderstood....
Let me take a look at what JBF is offering here....and I'll do my shopping.
CARDS ON MY HISTORY WANTLIST????? Yes, please. 26 left on that subset to go.
Royals parallels? Throw those in my cart.
History MINIS. Last year when Ginter came out, I decided to look up who LL Zamenhof was since I had no clue. Turns out he invented the language Esperanto. Nobody needs to know that, right? Wrong. That little piece of knowledge won me a match in my online trivia league last season. Yes, I am in an online trivia league. And it is glorious.
I had no idea this set existed. I would have chased it. Jared Ingersoll was a lawyer and VP candidate who signed the Constitution as a representative of Pennsylvania.
Finally....this appears to be my first "modern" tennis card. I had to unlock the Tennis section in Zistle for this.
And.......Scene. That's it! Thanks for all of it, JBF!
