Broken Hearts and Cracked Cards

Is the one you love giving you the brush off?  Are you pining? Were you kicked to the curb? Sent packing?  I have a few cracked cards just for you with no guarantees to heal your achy breaky heart!  Perhaps these cereal prizes will put a crooked little smile on your face.

 I've begun hoarding Kellogg's cards thanks to Jedi Jeff's recent donation.  He sent me over the edge with a nice stack of 1983 cereal stars.  Now it's eBay, COMC - whatever it takes.  These random purchases often come with a dupe or slightly cracked card. You'll find a few fellas who played hard, hardly played or never had much of a MLB career.  Mostly from 1980 and 1981 and scanned large to show their flaws, here they are in 3D glory:

                                                                       Rangers claimed


HOMELESS
 
 
 
                 Homeless                                     Homeless                                  Sutter claimed
 
 
                                                        Homeless                                Seaver claimed


                                                                                Claimed


                                                                             CLAIMED
   

                                                                              Yanks claimed


                                                                                  claimed


                                                       THESE THREE GUYS CLAIMED

If you want a couple of these cards, leave a comment to claim them and email your address to:
a  nospace cracked nospace bat atttt gmail dotta comma.  If we trade regularly, I have your address of course. 

If you want all of these cards then you are selfish and quite deserving of a lonely Saturday evening.  Wait.  That kinda describes me - the hoarder.  Oopsie.  If you think these cards aren't good enough for your collection, then you are judgmental.  It's pretty clear why you were ditched. Wait. Me. Again.  I am the one pushing these off on you. 

Happy Valentine's Day from A Cracked Bat!   And remember, never cry over spilled milk!

  7. I don't have any of these in my collection. It's a neglected period for me. I'd like to claim the Andujar, please. There's something about those mid-'70s Astros uniforms.
