|1500 or so cards|
Topps, Upper Deck, SP, Chrome, Pinnacle - this box held a bit of everything and needed sorting, of course. I hired some help about a year ago too but having no thumbs, Jingles is paid to do very little.

She is the sweetest kitty. A year old this month, she and her two siblings were abandoned in a box by the vet's back door at three days of age. One was adopted, the other sadly did not live. Jingles was bottle fed by the vet until she was old enough for me to bring home. She has only known love. Jingles likes kisses and will pull your face to hers when she wants one. Still...what a freeloader!
With her help, over half of the cards made it to the trade stacks. Others will be donated and some added to the discard box to be given away later. The trade cards must be moved into their team spots. There is one small problem...SPACE! When I began this project a few weeks back, I had one big box for trade cards which has morphed into three. I have at the very least, another 500 cards to squeeze into these which doesn't take into account those yet undiscovered.

In the midst of the sorting, I took some time to edit trade photos. There is a fellow out there, a non-blogger who puts a great trade package together. I don't know how many of you have swapped with him but he comments as Xavier Higgins and trades as Rocky Quinn. He sent two packages months ago and one just recently, probably 100 cards total. I can't possibly share all of these but here are some highlights:
|1992 Topps with Micros!! Love these tiny cards!|
|FOOD ISSUES: 92 Mother's Cookies Pudge and 96 Pizza Hut Piazza|
|VINTAGE TIGERS AND A BUCKY DENT|
|ALTUVE AND MIGGY|
|NICE KINSLER RELIC AND A GORGEOUS TICKET REFRACTOR|
I don't collect hockey at all but do love that Hawks Jersey! Xavier remembered my player collections too. I so appreciate this! Thank you for the diverse selection of cards. It was great fun! Sorry it's taken so long to share these. I want bloggers to know how generous you are!
Spring cleaning continues. If you've made it this far then my reader friends, you deserve a chance to claim another Cracked Bat disCARD box! I did mention there'd be another giveaway later. There are cards to move. To be eligible for a random chance, you must live in the USA - any one of our 50 great states will do. The other little detail - you aren't a past recipient of a discard box. I want to spread good will around the blogs. We'll keep the opportunity open through Sunday evening. I'll run the Randomizer around three times. The box will go to spot number two. Now all that's left for you to do is comment.
