The Spring is always a busy time for me at work and the nice weather means outside projects at home, so free time is hard to come by. While it is always nice to be busy, sometimes you just need a weekend to recharge the batteries. The slate as it stands now is clear for this weekend!
My hope is to spend some much needed time with my cards to get organized and send out a few packages. I've received so much great stuff this week that I want to return the favor to keep the momentum going.
I've shown quite a few Madlock items since I've started BWTP. He is just a fun guy to collect that doesn't hurt the wallet. Minus the high end releases pretty much all of the Mad Dog's cards are less than $10. This holds true with pretty much all the late 70's Pirates minus Pops.

These are not super rare autos as they fell around 1 in every 6 jumbo boxes, but now that the set is around 12 years old they are not popping up on eBay as much anymore. Madlock by far pops up the most. At the time I'm writing this only 4 show up on eBay with three being the Mad Dog.
If I'm recalling correctly I pulled the Dale Murphy from this set. The only reason I remember pulling that card was because it was my first ever purchase from Dave and Adams. Always amazing how looking at a card can make you remember the most random moments.
The Pirates are going for 8 in a row tonight. If this team can ever figure out how not to suck in April it would be a power house.
Have a great weekend.
