I spend a lot of free time watching baseball. It doesn't even have to be the Pirates, I just enjoy watching the game. Whether it be following fantasy players or hoping the Cubs and Cardinals lose it eats up a good bit of time.
With all the free time created by the All Star break I've been doing some organizing. I first made note of all the packages I got out earlier this week. Always a nice feeling to get some cards to better homes.
My task today was digging through some 5000 ct boxes that I hastily boxed up last year when my wife and I were reorganizing the office. 90% of the cards found were Buccos, but I did dig up a few nice cards from other teams.
I believe this card was a holdover from my days where I collected everything under the sun. Between 2008-2010 I gradually sold off many of my non-Pirate cards in order to give my collection some focus.
This Avant auto was an eBay purchase, but Biggio has always been one of those guys that I seemed to pull out of boxes over the years. If I recall I've pulled three autos and a couple of jersey cards. Man, Fleer had a lot of different products doing this time. I don't really know how this survived the purge. I'll probably end up trading to one of you!
This 2010 Topps Tulo is a card I knew I had. I was a huge fan of Tulo and grabbed several autos over the years to keep for my collection. I've traded most since I've started blogging, but held a couple back just because I'm still a fan. Peak Tulo was an absolute monster, but he just could not stay healthy.
I'm hoping to make a little more progress tomorrow because Friday begins 3 more months of distraction!
Thanks for reading.
