Looking back on my first full year, I realized my blog content was not nearly what I intended when I started. Making trades has become such a big part of the blogosphere, all my Tribe information has gotten put on the back burner. Now I love doing the trades, although I have to devise a plan for the new year to make sure I keep track of everyone, I still want to talk more about my Indians (who are starting to shape up a little). The new blog will be called "Baseball Dad's Trading Post". A little play on words there. ( Trading post as in early American settler days and Post as in blogging........ sorry 'bout that ! ). The trading post will have my want lists as well as many cards I have available for trade.I also may have some occasional posts on other non-Indian sports card subjects.You can still contact me through this blog as well, I just want to try and confine most of my trading deals to the trading post to help keep them under control.
Monday morning, my youngest son Andy will be headed to Boise to cover the BG Falcons in the Humanitarian Bowl. That's after he goes to Browns game tomorrow. His girlfriend gave him two, 50 yard line tickets for Christmas. What a sweetheart ! She doesn't know that he and I are going and she's staying home ! (YEAH, RIGHT !!) Too cold for me anyway.
Well got to get started on some of this stuff, let's see , who's next on the list ? NY_hitman_23, Capewood and others. Gotta' get started, I'm off work until Wednesday morning.

I worked today,until noon.When I got home and walked in the front door there was this wonderful aroma.This is what I saw upon entering the kitchen. My wife (in the background behind my oldest son Josh) along with two of my sister-in-laws. If you look close in the bottom left corner you can see what they were up to. Christmas cookies !!!!!!!!
So much for my sugar count.
But here's what you really want to see. I stopped at Target on my way home to check on Topps Unique. No luck. But I did find T-206.
Bailey had a good year for Oakland

Cards 1-35 are "Headline" cards with player photos on the front and simulated newspaper stories on the back.
The checklist for these cards can be found here : enter-play
They are a fun set and, for you canucks, there is also a Hockey Fan Pak set !

I had to work 1/2 a day today and came home to find a mailer on the counter.It said trick-or-treat from Tribecards! I wasn't sure what to expect, so I cautiously opened it up, and there inside was Albert!!! No trick just treat.
David had also posted about the Jack Clark auto above.
I mentioned that I had the base card to go with it, if he wanted it.
So what do he do? Sends me the auto!
So this was a real treat for Halloween this year. Without any sugar to send my A1C back up again! (finally got it stable at 6.3)
Well David,hope you have a Happy Halloween !!
Thank you very much for the treats!!

He couldn't seem to find his form from 2007 either,and of course,is now gone.
A nice Infield Power insert of Garko.
And the "Destruction Crew" has almost all "self destructed".
"VM"is gone, "Pronk" can't seem to get his power stroke back but hopefully Sizemore can return from his surgeries and give us some more exciting seasons.
But here was the big piece to this package !
Yep, a C.C. gold refractor ! Troll said he wanted to find a good home for this and he certainly did!! Thank you very much for all the great cards!

Why ? http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2009/baseball/mlb/10/25/acta.indians/index.html
There was old school color with a 1984 Fleer Bert Blyleven, another one of the big stars the Tribe always seems to acquire at the end of their careers!
Plus a newer B/W version of Omar Vizquel's 2005 Diamond King.Omar falls into the Tribe catagory of : "he can't play any more so we'll trade him" as he goes on to win another gold glove!!

Well, they were mostly Tribe cards. This is the second time Night Owl has found me a new Christmas ornament to add to my collection. Before long I will be getting out my Baseball Christmas Tree again.
Next up are a couple of parallels I need.
A black-bordered OPC Scott Lewis and
Jake Westbrook 2006 Topps Gold
I always liked the SportsFlix.
I was going to try and collect all of them at one time, but then we had a yard sale.
Some little kid came along and got real excited when he saw some.
I sold him some at 10 cents a piece,and as he walked away,he exclaimed to his Mother " I like these, they're holographic !"
