Beers Beets Battlestar Galactica

My wife and daughter surprised me with tickets to the home opener of the Black Bears season. The weather didn't cooperate, but after a lengthy rain delay the good guys won the game. Big bonus of the evening was that the starting pitcher was Pirates top pitching prospect Mitch Keller who was on a minor league rehab assignment. He pitched two dominating innings as he was on a strict pitch count.


Here are a few pictures from the game.





Black Bears card time


Will Craig 2017 Topps Pro Debut Red Auto /10

This was the big one I was looking for! Only one other version of this card had been on eBay at the time I purchased this copy and it had a ridiculous BIN.  This seller put on a good price and I immediately pulled the trigger only a few hours after it was listed.

All that remains is the /99 and /25 base parallels and I consider my quest complete.  I've yet to see any of the plates or the true 1/1's hit eBay but those would just be icing on the cake.

Thanks for reading!

  1. Nice pickup! Another /10 auto is almost ending if you want to corner the market.

    1. I saw that....plus another one is on. The auction one went for around $30. Glad I got the BIN one.

  3. Identity theft is not a joke, Jim. Millions of families suffer every year.

    (Looks like a fun time at the ol' ballgame!)

    1. It is nice. The surrounding area is developing fast which is taking away from some of the view. :(
