Black Friday COMC purchases

They had a deal with free shipping with 20 or more purchases so I took advantage of this and chipped away at some chrome rainbow sets.











eBay Purchases

These three cards came in the mail today.  The Cabrera card was 1.50 and the other 2 were for a dollar on Sportlots. 

TTM Returns-Knapp and Lepcio

Both of these returns were sent to their homes on 11/22 and came back on 12/2.  These are 8x10's 114 and 115 in my collection.  The CIC total is now at 179.

mail day


Got two big names in TTM today from the Hawk and Tony LaRussa.  I love Jason but it will be strange when Hawk is not calling games.

I also purchased these 5 8x10's off of Todd Schafer.  Got a pretty good deal.

Up to 178 Index Cards and 113 signed photos.

Kannapolis at Lexington IP (7/29-7/30)

This weekend, I took a road trip to Lexington (about 3 hours away) to do some IP graphing of the Kannapolis Intimidators.

On my way down, I stopped at commons4kids to drop off some cards.

It was very easy to get players to come over.  Those I didn't get were mainly because they had sweatshirts on and I couldn't see there numbers.

Here was the results from the two days
Micker Adolfo 2/2 cic, 17 Kannapolis
Burger, Jake 2/2 cic, ROMLB
Call, Alex 2/2, 2/2 16 Bowman Draft Green, 16 Bowman Draft Blue, 16 Bowman Chrome Draft Refractor, 17 Kannapolis
Cease, Dylan-Signed a couple before his start and then stopped.  He was charting the second day.  He signed for a couple before a coach told us to see them after the game.  A fellow SCN member gave me one of his 2017 Bowman Prospect cards
Elliott, Jake 1/1 cic
Escorcia, Kelvin 2/2 cic, 17 Kannapolis
Hobbs, Lane 2/2 cic, 17 Kannapolis
Gonzalez, Luis 1/1 cic
Massey, Grant 3/3 cic, 17 Kannapolis, 15 Great Falls
Martinez, Luis 1/1 cic
Olson, J.B. 1/1 cic
Remillard, Zach 2/2 cic, 17 Kannapolis
Roman, Mitch 1/2-17 Kannapolis, doesn't sign CICs

Picnic in the park

Picnic in the park
The last couple of years, I have wanted to go but it never worked in our schedule.  I decided this year, I would go by myself as I knew it would be a long day.  I did enjoy watching the game without having to go to the concession stand every other inning.

Anyways, after the game, we all lined up at gate one and was put into a holding bin at the picnic area.  We then lined up by number (I was 170...probably out of 300).   All of the players are in tables of 3 or 4 and you have about an hour to get as many as you can.  

I planned with the following priorities
  1. My sox logo 16x20
  2. 2017 topps now road to opening day 
  3. 2017 topps team set
  4. Any other cards I had of player
  5. Custom index cards
  6. Team cards of 2017 topps and topps heritage
Although it was 2 autographs per person, I had 3 ready for most people. 

My first plan was to go to Jose Abreu's line but that was very slow moving so I decide to hit some other tables that have a smaller or no line.  I got through 9 of  he 10 lines (missed Abreu's line by one person).  The only people I didn't get were Abreu, Willy Garcia, Gregory Infante, Curt Hasler, Chris Beck (injured during game), Don Cooper (did not show)

Here were the results
Kevan Smith-16x20, 12 topps heritage minor black, cic
Nate Jones-17 topps heritage, 17 topps rainbow foil and 17 topps gold
David Robertson-17 topps now road to opening day, 16x20
Derek Holland-16x20, 17 topps team set
Tommy Kahnle-16x20, 17 topps heritage team card
Dan Jennings-cic, 17 topps heritage team card
Nick Capra-16x20, 17 topps heritage team card
Yolmer Sanchez-16x20, 17 topps now, 17 topps team set
