Lots of pretty pictures coming up! Part of the reason for lack of posting (or posting with scans) over the last couple of days is that JD and I have been bachelors while mom is away with some girlfriends. We did typical guy stuff, watched TV, tossed a ball around, went to the card shop and (thankfully) he slept through the night both evenings, which finally gave me a chance to jump on the scanner and get in some stuff.
I went into the card shop on Saturday to pick up some more 9 sleeves and talk some shop. I didn't feel like purchasing a whole box of anything and the only loose packs I thought about were Topps, but I have a bit of Topps-lash going lately, so right by the register I found a little product called Panini threads basketball.
Basketball. Roundball. I actually do follow the sport to some extent, being a Blazer fan and the such. Did you hear that Joel Pryzbilla re-tore his leg muscle getting into the shower last weekend? Yup, been that kind of year up here in P-Town. Regardless, the product of discussion apparently allows for up to four autos or relics per 24 packs. I reached toward the middle left and grabbed four packs. Came away with two autos!
I pulled his regular auto as my third hit. Nice variety Topps. However, I do love my pitching phenoms, and if this guy breaks through then I will obviously change my tune in a hurry.
