Get in on this GROUP BREAK.

Checkout Nachos Grande Group Break with HighTek and Stadium Club along with some other goodies. Link is below.

First off I've been slow to post an get trade packages and PWEs posted as everyone other than myself has been under the weather in the household for the past 10 days. Hopefully I don't get it and can bask in the glory of being sick free. 

Well hopefully next week I'll be able to do some posts and get them done where I can at least post every few days being life won't be so hectic due to the oldest kid not having school. 

Topps really impressed me with a redemption I just entered in the last week or two being I already have it in my possession. Now if they could only fill my other 3 redemptions. Still waiting for about 7or 8 months on one an the other is a 2013 redemtpion that I entered a few months ago. The third I just entered today and probably will get pretty quick being I believe the card has already been returned topps. I do need to showcase my Stadium Club break that I did a week or two ago. Phew life has been crazy hectic.

A Trade That Didn't Work With Some Cards Anyways

Well this is post is the most painful one to date for me. I let a deGrom auto slip through my hands though nobodies fault but my own.

Judson from over at MY CARDBOARD HABIT pulled a deGrom auto out of an update jumbo rack pack. I reached out to Judson to try to work out a trade and it just didn't work out. Judson if you read this and still have the card maybe we can strike a deal. I may shoot you an email in the next week or so an see if you have the card. 

Well a few days after my fumbling the trade he asked for my address to send me some cards. Judson did not disappoint with the cards he sent my way. 

First up is a manufactured relic of Seaver. This is my first Seaver relic albeit manufactured in my collection. 

Up next is another manufactured relic of David Wright. Love Mr Met

And finally he send me a Dice-K photo variation SP. It appears he didn't pull an AJ Burnett and bunt it off his face

Judson thanks for the cards and if I pull any rangers in future breaks I'll keep you in mind.

I have a couple more trades in process of people reaching out and just got hit with another PWE.

TRADE: Need More Cardboard

First off let me start off by saying I've been a bad blogger as of late. I know my posts are few and far between, but with 2 kids 5 and under they keep me pretty busy most days especially since I work midnights. So from the time I get up until I head into work they have my attention pretty well tied up. Even on my days off I'm busy catching up and doing stuff around the house being I work 10 hr shifts. Plus the wife is slowly getting better but still having some medical issues. I need to try and find some time on my days off to bang out a few posts.

Now let's get back to what this post is really about. A trade with Andrew from over at NEED MORE CARDBOARD. Andrew I'm sorry it took so long for me to feature this trade, but without further ado here it is and I look forward to our future trades. 

Back in October(Damn that was awhile ago an SORRY AGAIN) he pulled a Seaver/Wright dual relic redemption from 2013 Topps Series 2 out of repack box. It  didn't take much going back an forth to mutually agree on a trade.  I think I received these about 2-3 weeks ago. So I've definitely been slacking with the posting.  I sent him some cards off my trade bait and a bunch of Braves.  In return I received the following cards. 

Wonder how long Topps will take to fulfill this one?  Still have 3 or 4 outstanding. 

He also helped me out by sending me 3 team bags full of13 Gypsy Queen. 

Andrew thanks again for the trade and look forward to our next one and again in sorry it took so long for me to post about it.
