Don't blink now, but someday I will catch up to you! smile.gif baby.gif

Really nice the past few days and today is no exception! 65F, clear, slight breeze and 0% humidity. cool.gif

Last week I just received a 1938 Will's Cigarettes 40-card set of horse racing I won on eBay. Just beautiful! And scary. It arrived 3 days later - all the way from England. I'm actually happier I collect older stuff! Can't put a price guide on those babies for the dealer to rip you off.

Thinking about getting a flatbed scanner so I can work on my homepage. It sucks. dry.gif

Where the hell are those 50-cent Taguchi cards I won two weeks ago???? Like it matters.

Must.... control.... urge.... to buy..... Dwyane Wade...... rookie.... cards...... In time, those indestructible cards will have a 'price correction' and even if I pay a little more, he would have already been a proven player. But "Mike" still holds that spot.

Arlington race 6: #6 Lair and Hare $20 on the nose

Need to sort out through the junk I collected back in 1992-99. Maybe I'll save that for a rainy day. I can't believe I collected all that crap. unsure.gif

I'll take photos of Central Park in June.

EDIT: This was actually written in April of 2006.

entry Aug 25 2006, 05:50 PM
Humid today, a little cooler. Supposed to rain. Looks like I'll be cleaning up that collection.

I'll go out in a bit and look for that flatbed scanner.

My horse scratched yesterday.
Race 3B (England): Antonius Pius

Work on homepage, looks too cluttered.


Entry Update

I got me a new scanner and already updated my webpage.

Entry YES!!!

My eBay win of Ichiro's AU'd baseball arrived today!!! WOOHOOOO!!!!

A few more 2006 Epic cards and an actual game-used item and I'll be happy.

entry Aug 19 2006, 02:27 PM
I added a page for my Ichiro collection linked directly from my Webpage.

entry Aug 18 2006, 06:12 PM
Okay. After all is said and done and after I get my 10+ paid-for items from eBay, I can just narrow my focus a bit more.

I'm getting a bit nervous now. A couple of card I won on the 13th and 14th arrived today. The AU baseball I won on the 9th has not arrived yet. That is to be the centerpiece of my Ichiro collection.

I'm removing cards from snaptites and screwdowns and placing them into toploaders to compact my collection. Anything condition sensitive goes into a magnetic holder. Screwdowns take up too much space. The three rare T206s and my lone N28 will stay in the bricks.

I have a lot of scanning to do. And I have to plan on mailing my TTM cards when the season is over.

Can't wait until football season starts and see how well my Bengals do. The multi-colored patch cards are awesome because the orange really contrasts with the black and white.

entry Aug 18 2006, 10:42 AM
I can't seem to stop cold turkey. I wanted to, but then stuff that I'm looking for that never comes up on eBay finally springs up.

Another different T206 back for my Bill Bergen collection.

I think after this, I can concentrate on my Ichiro collection. Yeah, I've gone modern, but hey, why not? Everybody seems to be aiming for the big HR sluggers. The only ones I would have to contend with are Mariners fans, Ichiro collectors, and the country of Japan. But, I am working on an idea. It may cost me something. I may not even get anything in return, but I don't know if it has been tried before. I think it's worth a shot because if it works, it would have cost me a fraction of what it might have gone for on eBay. I'll update this idea in the near future in the forums.

2005 Finest Green Xfractor AU

entry Aug 5 2006, 09:26 AM
Redid my webpage links. All the prewar is now together. I added another page: Modern-day Sluggers. It's the base RCs of today's top HR hitters.

I will probably add a Japanese section. But I need to take scans/pictures first.

entry Jul 21 2006, 03:27 PM
A Hideki Matsui autographed baseball. It's not very easy to get one, let alone one from a reputable authenticator. I just won it on ebay, paid for it and waiting for its arrival. They don't even have Hideki's autographed baseball at the Yankees stores here in New York City because they said he refused to sign anything 'commercial'.

entry Jul 16 2006, 09:33 AM
There is just ONE more item I want to get for my collection and it is well within my grasp. Too bad there is no BIN. That will probably be the last one for a while. My T206 Highlanders will have to wait. I can pilfer a Swackhamer card every now and then, but that would be the most of my collecting activity since he is not a "hot item" and his cards are relatively cheap.

I will soon slow down my collecting activities to a crawl. It is taking its toll on my wallet. I took a step back and I think things were made too easy because of PayPal connected to a credit card. The money I have spent in the last 17 months have gotten me quite a collection, but I still felt something was missing. Something that could have been better well-spent. A ballgame? No. Companionship? Not quite. And then there it was - a National Geographic travel catalog. I've always wanted to see the Serengeti. I've always wanted to travel to some exotic place in the Pacific. I've always wanted to take first-hand pictures of the Himalayas. Now I've decided to do those things. Within the next 10 years, that will be my goal: The Serengeti wildlife, Polynesian Islands, and the mountains of Tibet. I will sacrifice a lot, but I know it will be worth it.

I lost my pet fish. R.I.P. little one.... I think I'll redo my webpage sometime later this week. I have a whole bunch of T206s incoming.

entry May 13 2006, 12:56 PM
Redid webpage to divide certain collection projects. Added pics of my pet siamese fighting fish.

entry Apr 13 2006, 05:33 PM
Added new April acquisitions to my webpage. A card from the Nagy collection and a couple of nice-looking PSA-1s.

entry Apr 3 2006, 10:44 AM
Okay, I will have to step away from eBay for a while. I don't know if I have buyer's remorse or what, but I really wanted that card. It's not my white whale, but it is from a famous colletion and marked as such. I'll probably stop for now (probably until late July), unless I see a beautiful T206 Bergen slabbed.

I think I need to step away for a bit.....

entry Mar 30 2006, 03:11 PM
Bah! Forget the Southern League cards. Too many for too much. About $100 per on average. I'll stick with background flag & steeple T206s.

entry Mar 24 2006, 02:39 AM
Okay, I have 78.5% of my T206 Cardinals team set completed. I have 50% of my Pittsburgh Sleeves subset completed. Need three cards for each (six in all) to complete each subset. I will then try to complete a T206 Southern League subset in PSA 2 or 3 quality. Those are the nicest I can afford. It will be a challenge once I start the SL subset since each card in those conditions average to about $100 per and there are about 30 in the subset.

Has anyone noticed the glut/excess of T206s up for auction on eBay? And those are going strong since they are being won/sold way above book. The TMV for T206s average to about 140% SMR and there are no signs of it slowing down.
