Here are my unique cards of the eve... The Milky Way...much smaller than I first thought. Once we nuzzle up to Andromeda, then things should get interesting.
I did pull a couple highlight sketch cards that were pretty interesting
And of course my run of pulling Chipper Jones cards continues. This one is considerably goofier looking than Pujols.
And then to wrap it up, I had 7 mini cards, 3 of which were ginter-backed rookie cards, 3 regular backed player cards, and then the London Bridge Bamboozle Cards. I am still at a loss over 1) how to store these cards 2) all the different variations available and which are more rare, and 3) WHY everybody goes nuts and spends a ton to get them. But I will plow forward and by the end of my boxes I will have 72 little confusing cardboard pieces to ponder over.
Tonight I volunteered for the Triple-A All-Star game. I will be one of the dudes holding the huge american flag during the National Anthem. That is pretty cool, though in Portland, we will probably be lucky if we can get a Cessna to do the flyover. I am unsure who is singing the national anthem, but my money is on either Storm Large (local singing talent) or Art Alexakis from Everclear. Those are just my guesses.
Might stick around for the game to see Buchholtz pitch, but other than that probably grab a dog and sneak out early. Will report more later.
