Too many to choose from

I haven't talked much about the baseball playoffs, mostly because with the Jays not part of the action, I haven't had the desire to watch too much, though there have been some great games. Congrats to the Dodgers for making the World Series with their win last night, and it looks like it will be against the Yankees, but only time will tell for sure.

Okay, so the highlight today was hard to choose, so I went with all of them. No reason not to highlight all the excellent things, right? So we have three different items...


This is the first card I have seen of 2005-06  Topps Big Game Basketball. Not only a big of shiny on the front, serial numbered card as well, so good on those accounts. Taking a look at his NBA stats - still in the league, but a career spent on 8 teams so far, and a couple years spent playing in Russia, so no a solid journeyman may be a good title, but those who know better than I, please chime in.

One completely new, and one, a third copy - still works out in both cases, so nice adds.

Another McD add for 2007-08 getting near about 60% done on that set now (or thereabout).

The rest

This is a good symbol of how great a day of cards this was. Even with the highlights, nine more keepers. Been a while since I have had that many I think.

I wouldn't mind seeing a few more Trilogy cards, and the Be A Player are alright too.


Even some decent traders with a couple more McD cards, and a new to me 2004-05 Ultra basketball rookie card.
