Today I started to plan my 2017 Pirates baseball trip!!!!
The main requirement is that I visit a new stadium. Next is finding dates that work, which is the most difficult task. Last year for San Diego I could only find one person to go with me as many of my friends are of the age where having kids is the thing to do. Thankfully this year seems to be coming together a little easier.
This year the winner looks to be Chase Field in Phoenix. It is a 4 game weekend series in mid May so it can accommodate a lot of schedules. Maybe I'll see if Daniel can meet up with me. Might be as many as five people on this trip!
How about a new card....
2016 Topps Archives 65th Anniversary Edition Kent Tekulve Auto
This card sold for cheap because the auto is not the greatest of quality. I didn't care because it is Teke and all Teke cards need a good home. The final price was around $5 shipped.
I couldn't bring myself to open one of these because the Pirates in the set could be had for less than the going rate of the box. Just need to find the Vern Law now. I also hate shopping with a passion so the hatred of going somewhere like Walmart usually wins over blaster boxes of cards. The true test will be if Walmart had some type of guaranteed Kent Tekulve hot box. I'd probably bite on that....
Thanks for reading!
