A new week! One free of any tax deadlines! I usually go into hiding during those last two weeks around the filing day. Now I can press onward with purging and sorting, enjoying the hobby at least til Mid-August. I took a break from unboxing to clean a little more from the study closet - broke the wrap on and dismantled a 2002 Topps Factory set, keeping maybe 50 cards. The rest are up for adoption. Cards like Griffey, Thomas and Bonds are still in the box.

I want to acknowledge more trades, received only a few months ago. Only. A.J of The Lost Collector sent a nice lot of cards. My favorite of the group is the Marquee Ty Cobb from 2011. I like these cards and missed out on the release, a bit like a high end version of Stadium Club with four cards to a box. I'll take a Marquee in trade any day!
Douglas Corti - Sportscards from the Dollar Store sent a nice group of paper Tigers:
Douglas included a GQ relic and Bowman auto but I have to say, my favorites are the Sportsdisc and 1989 Schedule. Awesomeness right there!
Cards on Cards' Kerry Biggs sent a batch of 100 or so. An assortment of Poseys, Miggy refractor/99, GQ framed Tigers, and Heritage Rainbow Foil Kinsler were among the highlights. Hard to choose a favorite among these cards.
Thanks guys for the fantastic surprises. Now that I'm sorting and arranging binders, these cards will be enjoyed all the more! I have just a few more trades to share before lifting the ban. More discards will be given away. Anyone out there collect back issues of Beckett???
