Slim pickings

First, a big congratulations to LeBron - he finally did it and I hope Cleveland enjoys it - well deserved. I was never a big fan of Golden State (I am generally an under dog appreciating person), but LeBron leaving Cleveland always bothered me, but the redemption story has been too good, and glad to see it get the storybook ending. Glad yesterday was a winner of a day for him.

Not every day can be a winner, and today is one of those days regarding the Santa Lot 20...very slim pickings indeed. So, a good time to first share another 20 baseball cards I pulled off of Listia - let's see what I got there at least....


Needed the Lloyd as I have one as part of a complete set.

The rest

Some 1992 Stadium Club with what is likely the best baseball card photography of the early 90s, Add to that the few 1986 cards, and not a bad haul.


Should be able to find someone who will want the extra Mattingly - maybe not so much on the other couple...

So at least that all brought a few decent for the Santa Lot 20...


Given the choices - I could have gone with some decent football below, but personally, the extra Victory cards are the slim picking highlight today. Yeah...just going to be one of those days...

The rest

The Fitzgerald card is the Canadian version (both English and French on the back) and from the period of the mid 90s when, with the expansion, it seemed every pack came with a number of Panthers or Sharks...


A nice Randy Moss card from 2008 Donruss Threads (and the Vince Young card is fairly nice as well). Otherwise, nice design for the Amare card, and a number of Ultra retail (I like the bit of shine on the hobby version myself). Actually, didn't know there was the difference until getting these cards and looking at what I had to see the difference between retail versus hobby. Given this, I consider both base sets and not one a parallel of the other - right or wrong...
