One For Keeps,One For Trade

The blog world has had many posts about the situation with Ryan Braun.  All that needs to be said has been said by many in the mainstream media, among fans, and typed in blogs.  I will spare you anymore words typed about Ryan Braun.

I would like to show you readers a couple of cards that I picked up at Valley Sports Cards in Tarzana,CA.

I was able to pick up this Shawn Green card off the bid board at my local card shop.  I probably walked in at the perfect time in order to snag the game used gem.  Shawn Green cards go fast in the San Fernando Valley.  The bid board at the shop lets the sellers choose to sell there cards using a "buy it now" option.  The seller had this one marked at 2 bucks.


This is a 2003 Donruss Studio Shawn Green Game Used Pants.  This card is also from a specific event.  I love those types of cards.  The event was a Big League Home Run Challenge which took place in February 2002.  It must have been an off season home run derby.  I don't remember watching or hearing about this event.

Anyone remember the great Big League Home Run Challenge of 2002?

While at the shop, I decided to bust some packs of Topps Lineage.  Lineage has become one of my most opened packs of 2011.  I love the parallels in this set as well as the game used cards.  I will probably end up buying a box of this product down the road.

This is a David Ortiz GU.  The swatch is a bright red.  It is always cool to see some color on a game used card.

Big Papi doesn't fit into my collection.  This card is up for grabs.  Please Red Sox fans, take this one home with you.  Papi is probably going to retire as a member of the Sox.  Add this card into your PC.

Also, Cardboard Heaven is having a cardboard draft for $15 bucks.  Please go and check it out.  His draft is almost filled up.
