Thanks again Matt! I hope all your baseball wishes come true this year (except if it is winning the AL East).

This is a day late, and I will have a longer post coming up, but I wanted to thank Matt from the blog Doc Holoday who was nice enough to send me a great shipment of Rays cards. I can honestly say that I loved each and everyone of the cards you sent. Being new to the hobby, I can never get enough of cards of my teams. It doesn't matter if it is rare, common, or whatever. It is always such an awesome feeling. I will post pictures, but I wanted to get this up on here as soon as I could.

I just got home from a little road trip to Tucson to find a package from Topps in my mailbox. Back in January, I shipped off 50 empty packs of cards in hopes that I would get a pack. I know a lot of people got the maximum of 10 packs, but I just wanted to give it a shot one time. So once I opened the mystery package, the disappointment hit me. Cards are beautiful, but no Rays or D-backs. I was even crossing my fingers for a Red Sox card to throw in this little care package that I am shipping out but nope. I still am very happy that I did the promotion, but it would have been 1,000 times more gratifying if I would have pulled a Longo or a hit. That's how it goes, I guess :(

I was looking through a box today, and I came across a bag that had some random All-Star game things in it from when it was in Phoenix in 2011. One of the items was actually these two pictures that my girlfriend and I took with Chester from Linkin Park. We were walking up, and I ran right into him. I took a quick picture with him, and so did my girlfriend. He is from the valley, so I guess it was not a huge surprise that he would be at one of the largest sporting events that has come around.
I just posted a few toys that I really do not have room for, but I do have room for these ones! I worked at KB Toy Store as part of my High Schools OJT program back in '04. I always loved ordering the McFarlane Sports Picks, and would always be that guy that rummaged through the boxes to get the rare ones. When I moved away my brother opened just about all of them, but I managed to save a few of my favorites. The ones I really enjoy are the ones that I do not have a varient form of. The Randy Johnson one at the bottom is in a purple jersey which was a big deal, but it has a gash in the packaging courtesy of my little brother.
Not sure if anyone even collects these things, but I figured I would put them up to see if anyone has interest. I am going to post some of my cards up for trade too. I am just looking for primarily Rays stuff, but D-Backs stuff would be cool too. I am trying to clear room out, and there does not appear to be much of a market.
