ON Saturday 27 April 2013 I got a ton of books, no wait I got two packages of cards one from Ebay purchase(s) and one from the Football Group Break over at TCZ hosted by Mike.FOOTBALL:

*Sort of tired of the card companies making all these minute variations of cards that you have to search 20 different levels of variations just to realize your card is condsidered the "base" version (even if they do seal it in a hinged case).BASEBALL:
Oh plus a couple of cards I got from Ebay that I will feature on my Curly W Cards
Blog. Two sketch cards both in color w/ FREE SHIPPING. One was pretty much at my absolute top price for a new individual card seeing as it was a 1/1 sketch I decided to pull the trigger for it at $34.99 the other was a more comfortable (to me) $24.99 both are by the same artist Qwasian. I like them, the artist isn't super great but still has plenty of artistic talent. Each sketch I saw at his? Ebay some flaws but sometimes that is what makes sketches appealing.
First the more expensive one that is on a "canvas" textured card (guess that is why it was the $35) of Bryce Harper Nationals - Head shot in blue away batting helmet.
The other card I saw first and just HAD to have. It is also a head shot of Bryce Harper Nationals but Bryce is in a retro throwback 1920s/40s? Senators/Nationals cap and it is in the style of the 1953 Topps Baseball cards.
Both cards have blank backs and both have some of the ink/paint bleeding through to the back the batting helmet one more so. I think both are done in watercolor. Not sure the artist appears to use different mediums according to descriptions and other samples of his work.
