It's weird how something so sudden that occurs in one's life can really put things in perspective. Take the recent Hurricane Irene; it takes your mind off of life's simpler things and brings forth the broader panoramic view of ones life. There was deaths, injuries, and damage to severe to label...and some people got pissed over the rescheduling of some baseball games due to the inclimate weather caused by the storm. My family and myself were fortunate enough to only get heavy winds and rain that brought no damage or power loss or flooding. Here I am spewing off about putting life's important things over minor things, yet irony chomps down on me. There was a period of time where I paniced about the safety of my cards and mem'...point is we're not all perfect. We all worry about material things. I have several items of my past memories with my uncle and myself before he passed away from cancer, and I worry about those being safe as well. If you put aside our attachment to our posessions in times like these, it will give meaningful insight about the big picture. (Note: My cards are ok...haha) Keep Rippin- T.P.P.

Hey everyone. I just decided to throw together a custom based on a 1966 Topps design mainly because I was bored. I have videos of my hauls from this summer that are in the process of being uploaded to our youtube channel, so you can check em out pretty soon. This is kind of strange, but I honestly haven't bought cards in about three weeks...don't ask me why, because I certainly would like to, but I just haven't made my way out to my LCS or Target recently. However, I have traded cards with 20youk. In
these trades, I got some nice cards. Here are some highlights.
1.2009 Topps Unique Adrian Gonzalez Solo Shot Relic (/199?)
2.Billy Ripkin F-Face Black Box
3.Several Pedroia & Lester base for my PC's of each player
4.2007 Boston Globe Upper Deck Red Sox WS Champions Jacoby Ellsbury RC

Also, Topps is once again scheduled in 2012 to be a sellout with their tired theme of some obscure-titled giveaway and some sort of diamond, gold, encrusted trash heap which they call parallels. Note that the theme is essentially a gold version of this years set. So much for a fresh idea each year, Michael Esiner. You and your unkept promises can go lock yourselves in the firery pits of a massive junk-wax bonfire.

- 4 packs 2011 Allen and Ginter
- 4 packs 2011 Bowman Platinum
- 2 packs 2011 Series 2
- 2 packs 2011 Series 2 Jumbo
While I was there I redeemed my two Prime Nines, 3 Jackie Robinson, and 9 Sandy Koufax. I did pretty well with my packs too. Out of Allen and Ginter, I pulled a Stan Lee SP autograph. Out of Series 2, I got 2 diamond giveaways, and a Carlos Pena auto. The diamond giveaway codes yeilded me a 1970 base, and a Matt Holiday die cut. Finally, I pulled a Cody Scarpetta auto out of the platinum. Here are the scans!
Part 3 to come...

Hey everyone. Sorry I haven't posted in a while; I've been on several vacations. However, during said vacations, I visted some card stores, notably my favorite being Chris's of NH. I'll have those hauls posted for you tomorrow in a recap which will hopefully include some scans if my printer doesn't go kaput on me again.

Fist, I will start off with my first trip to Pastime Cards and Collectables. I went there, but I had not planned on going, so I only had $20. Here's what I bought...
-3 Kevin Youkilis base cards needed for my PC
-1 Pack of 2011 Series 2
-3 Packs of 2011 Allen and Ginter
Out of the Series 2, I pulled a Jason Heyward Jersey card with a plain white swatch. I also got a Prime 9 redemption for week number 9. This was my second prime 9 card, and both of them came in the same pack as the jersey card. I had not redeemed either of them yet. Unfortunatally, my 2011 Allen and ginter only yeilded a Jon Lester SP, and no hits.
Stay tuned, because the best pulls are yet to come...
