Recent PC Pick Ups!

So along with wanting to trade more on the blog, I also want to show off my stuff. Almost everything in this post will be eBay or Twitter pick-ups, along with some trades I've forgotten to brag on. If these are cards I got from one of you in trade, I'm sorry for being a bad post-er of trades and I will be better...
Clemens in two uniforms is just cool. Schefter is part of a new section of my PC: TV Announcers and Personalities - this includes my Larry King swatch and my Erin Andrews autograph. Just some random Astros and Texans pick ups in there as well.

So I went a little Biggio crazy and snatched up some great cards. I will say the GQ and Tribute were eBay pick ups, but the Museum Collection is straight from Wes over at JayBarkerFan's Junk; he actually pulled it while at my former LCS in Spanish Fort, Alabama so a huge thanks for the deal, I sent him a Hammerin' Hank Aaron autograph that I got from a group break. My big question on the GQ mini book is this: where did the black and white patch come from. I can't remember the Astros having that much black in any uniform with the stark white patching.
Again, more random Texans and a nice Springer numbered out of just 25 from National Treasure. Oh what Panini could do with a license, this card would look amazing with logos and such.

Well, that wraps this post up, hopefully I don't go another 2-3 months before I post again...

No Really, I'm Still Here... Trade With Me!

Hey everyone, I wanted to stop in and post a blog on this lazy Sunday. I have been a horrible blogger of late. I've gotten lazy. It's been faster and easier to show off my stuff on Twitter (@thedimwit). Well, I want to post here more because I'm getting no where with trading on Twitter. I figure the trade lands are more fertile in the blogs, where people are actually worried about their collections and organizing their trade bait rather than trying to make a quick buck selling their cards via tweet.

So here's the deal: I WANT TO TRADE. I want to get these cards that don't fit in my collection moving out to you all and for you to be able to do the same. So here we go, throwing up a bunch of trade bait and hoping to get some offers rolling in... So, first up I have a bunch of hits from Panini's newest USA product, including a nice patch #'ed /5!
Ok, so the top middle is Lance McCullers, he's not going anywhere. Anything else = trade bait. The John Dearth is #'ed 4/5.

So here's a sampling of what else I have to offer... if you have Astros stuff you want to trade or get rid of, let me know, I'd love to overpay for it. Really, I've got trade bait coming out of my ears.
And finally, for you soccer fans (and loyalists who read to the end of my posts), this is up for trade as well...
You pigs...
