A few hobby things brewing here. One I am really excited about, but probably won;t be able to share anything until this coming weekend, depending on the Post Office. But in the mean time, I've added a couple cards to my Paul Blair player collection.

New and Old PC Additions
Wait. Don't I already have that card? Yes, I do. I had three at one time, but traded one for the chicken bucket lid and a handful of team-issued postcards. So, this one brings me back up to three. I've talked about this card before. To recap, it was a limited edition Nabisco All-Star Legends card that was issued at regional in-person events and not through the mail like the more pervasive cards from this small set. In 10 years, I have seen only 5 appear on eBay. When the listing mentions the actual set name, the cards always sell for crazy dollars (the lowest I've seen is $68.)
But, twice now it was buried in a larger lot of cards and the auction description made no mention of Nabisco. Both times, I was able to pounce on the lot and win this card for a song. This card above came in a lot with autographed cards of Brad Ausmus, Steve Avery, Harold Baines, Jesse Barfield, Jay Bell, Tom Brookens, and Earnest Byner. The whole lot was mine for about $30. I don't need any of the others, so claim 'em if you want 'em.
The second card is a custom card that draws it's inspiration from 1988 Donruss.
Other than the bare-bones back (I alliterate intensely) it is actually well done. I'm still not overly convinced about ACEO cards, but I am not deadset against them either.
Anyways, I've got a full day tomorrow and need to get my beauty sleep. So, I am going to end here and only mention vaguely that I am within striking distance of finishing one of my favorite projects that I've undertaken since I got back into the hobby.
