I saw this on my way home from work last night

Another collector obviously. It makes me wonder how many others I pass on the road in a day.

Are You A Cardboard Hoarder?

I bet many of you are like me and you hoard every little baseball card item there is.  I have a big stack of those hologram stickers from the junk wax era.  I don't even remember what brand used to put them in packs but I sure have a bunch of them.  Am I ever going to do anything with them?  Probably not.   Is someone ever going to ask me if I have a A's hologram sticker?  Again Probably not.  I probably won't ever even stick them but I still have them.

Hopefully you are that same way and have some useless baseball card stuff laying around because I just found a Virdon something that many of you may have hoarded away.  Remember Sportflix Trivia Cards?  You know those little Trivia Cards that came in the packs that most people discard(ed)?  Turns out #10 from 1986 Sportflix has a Bill Virdon back. The problem is I don't have it in my hoard.

Every now and then I find an oddball Virdon item out of the blue like this.  Things like View Master Reels and Trivia Pursuit cards are not on most collectors radar so they don't end up on any player checklist anywhere.  They are bitter sweet things to find.

Hopefully someone out there and has a big stack of Sportflix Trivia cards taking up space in a box somewhere that can PWE one to me.  (I guess I need to be just as hopeful someone out there is still reading after no posts for almost 2 years)

I don't know if posting will be a regular thing.  More regular that the last two years I would guess but I doubt I go back to a post every day.

Would You Like To Be A Fantasy Manager

I have a Fantasy League that consists of bloggers and former bloggers.  (I had to let former bloggers in there or I couldn't play myself)  This will be our 5th season playing and I lost a couple managers.

I need to find 2 replacement managers for the two following teams.  It is a deep keeper league so keep that in mind when choosing.

Team 1 (Formally Dayf, AKA. David, AKA Cardboard Junkie's Team)

Ryan Braun
Freddie Freeman
Josh Hamilton
Jason Heyward
Matt Holliday
Evan Longoria
Brian McCann
Brandon Phillips
Buster Posey
Jurickson Profar
Andrelton Simmons
Troy Tulowitzki
Ben Zobrist

Rex Brothers
Jim Johnson
Craig Kimbrel
Lance Lynn
Mike Minor
CC Sabathia
Jeff Samardzija
Ervin Santana
Julio Teherán
Adam Wainwright
Alex Wood

Team 2 (Formally's Team)

Brandon Belt
Adrián Béltre

Justin Verlander
Jered Weaver

If you want one of the teams just comment here.  First come first serve*.  

*If Dayf or Gordon claim their team here in the next 2 days I'm going to let them have it even if someone else already claimed it.  Maybe they changed an email address and I didn't know (although I tried 2 different ones for David; he may just have Ponies on his brain and forgot how to answer emails.)

I Need Some Help From a Canadian Blogger or an Expos Collector

If you read my blog you know that I am trying to get one of every Bill Virdon card.  There is a common card though that has eluded me for years.  I know it exists but I have never seen it.  I don't mean in person I mean on eBay or any other card site.  The card I am talking about is a 1984 Expos Stuart #38 Coaching Staff card.  It has the entire Expos coaching staff on it which included Virdon.  I don't know much about the set and since I have never seen this Virdon card I'm going to guess it was a local set.  (hence the Canadian/Expos help)

There is a complete set listed on eBay right now for $10 and it ends in 2 days.  I don't want to give $10 for this one card so hopefully someone out there has the card for trade.  Please help!

No Inspiration

I know I have been gone a long time.  I don't have an excuse for it, except for the week I was on vacation, the rest of the time I just didn't "feel it".  As a matter of fact I don't feel it right now but I don't want to fall blogrolls just in case inspiration strikes at some point.  

Just because I haven't been writing doesn't mean I haven't been trading and picking up cards.  I had a nice haul of Topps tattoos a while back that I spread out amongst some bloggers.  I nabbed a about 20 Fleer Ted Williams cards for less than a buck a piece and I have added a few Virdon's (including FIVE 1/1 cards!!).  That said I also added these and I have no use for them except as trade bait.

 So if you are working on a 59 set and don't care, at all, for condition I'll be your Huckleberry.  (If you can't tell from the picture someone cut out the team logos from the cards)

Also, Bo and Bert: I didn't forget about you guys I'll be getting you your cards soon.
