Recap 1: Random(or Un-random) cards of the day.
If you are a follower of mine on twitter you see these every morning. Sometimes I am able to give a small thought on the cards, but most of the time I do not have enough characters. Here I can give my thoughts on each of these cards, without character limitations. If you want to see future cards on twitter follow me @gbcardguy on twitter and you can see all of these cards at georgebrettcards.weebly.com.
1974 O-Pee-Chee #604
What's not to love about vintage OPC cards. Also its a Frank White rookie card. Royals lovers will tell you that if defense was a the major factor of the Hall of Fame, he would probably be in it.
Monday, April 6th Random George Brett Card of the Day
1986 Sportflics #64
One of my favorite brand of cards. 3 cards in 1. If you saw my last blog "The Top Ten Variation Cards" you would have saw that I listed the 1987 Sportflics variation as my number 1.
2002 Fleer Fall Classics #93
2 of the best 3rd baseman's ever. I'm sure others will disagree. As stated in previous blogs, the early to mid-2000s Brett cards, are not well represented in my collection. It is an era that I taking a hard look to expanding.
1992 Pinnacle Rookie Idols #3
I am not sure why this card is listed for so much money. Gary Cooper, although he had a good minor league career, his major league career was less than a month.
1981 Donruss #100
It's the first year of Donruss. To what some call the beginning to the downfall of the baseball cards. I know in the early 80s times were different, but it still amazes me that no one had any problems putting out cards with players having a big piece of chaw in his cheek.
2005 Leaf Certified Materials #193
What's up with the "5", it looks weird. I actual have a good selections of 2005 cards. With several serial numbered cards and a bat card.
1981 Ted Watts Postcards
Some might not consider this a card, but I will. There is actual 2 variations of this card. This one has black ink on the back. I am on the hunt for one with brown ink on the back. Their on eBay, but I'm waiting for one in a price that I'm willing to pay.
Recap 2: New cards added to the collection
Only 3 new Brett cards added this week. But I am excited for the 3 I got, 2 variations and 1 panel. You can see them on my front front page of my website georgebrettcards.weebly.com. I do have a 1987 Topps hardback sticker on the way. I'll get it posted when it arrives. But I have started collecting 2015 Topps Series 1 cards. I haven't bought a pack of cards since I was in middle school. It is fun opening up packs and being surprised what's inside. I have over 80% of the base cards and several of the related set cards. I will probably be putting them up for sale sometime. Not sure which site to put them on. EBay is the most popular, but since I have been on Twitter I have seen several other areas to sell. If anyone reading this has any suggestions, let me know.
Recap 3: Life in general
This week I am a bachelor. My wife is helping her mother to recover from a knee surgery and our kids are at my moms. I should get to the honey-do list, but motivation right now is pretty low. I think it will get done eventually, but for now, this guy is ready for bed...Good night!
