Got a couple of Cubs cards from bajmurray in today's (Tuesday 19 May) Mail

2001 Leaf Limited Rookie Game Worn Pants Corey Patterson #/650 Mostly white but there is a tiny piece of blue in the left corner. Pretty nice.

2003 Donruss Studio Sammy Sosa GU interesting it has a 2003 MLB All-Star Game logo on the front, then has a "John Hancock All-Star Fanfest" Logo on the back but the Game Used material is from the Cubs/Reds game from 1 April, 2002 a white... wait for it....


A Game Used piece of base. So wait Sammy didn't steal any bases that night, Donruss did. So they could put them on cards, the thieves! laugh.gif

Anyway the score was Reds 5 Cubs 4.

OK here is blaster #2.
The first one I did with my webcam recording but not online anywhere so I might not be able to get that online anywhere. I'm having problems with getting Youtube to recoginize my account with Google to link them. I think with ustream you can only post stuff you have actually recorded live on ustream (or add a Youtube video but if I can't add anything to youtube I can't add it to ustream). So my $40 investment in a webcam might just mean an alternative to my scanner (which I still haven't hooked up yet) which is sort of pointless some what.

George Sherrill Orioles (dupe FT)

Pack 3:

Troy Tulowitzki Rockies (SP)
Chris Iannetta Rockies
2009 Rookie Star Wilkin Castillo Reds
