Whoops... I got more Bowman

Because of the way I am organizing my collection, I have been working on a couple of new tabs simultaneously, but unfortunately neither are ready to debut today. I should probably focus on one at a time to get them done but with collector's ADD...oh look some Bowman blasters!

I said I wasn't going to buy any more Bowan other than Cubs cards but these were a prize...sort of. I won a $50 big box store gift card through a raffle so of course my first instinct was, of course, baseball cards! I was a little indecisive at first because my last two blasters provided an autograph hit so I was due for a bad one. But I pulled the trigger on 2 Bowman blasters before my wife could convince me to get something for the house. Nothing spectacular but pretty good, especially for free. Everything below is up for grabs, although one of the Rymer Liriano's will be going into the Padres package I have set aside for Marcus over at All the Way to the Backstop.

Carlos Perez Auto (sticker, Braves) Josh Hamilton (Silver Ice?, Rangers) Albert Pujols (Bowman's Best, Angels)

2x Rhymer Liriano (Bowman's Best, Padres) Carlos Martinez (Purple Chrome, #115/199, Cardinals)

International Parallels Ervin Santana (Angels) & Jesus Montero (RC, Mariners)

With 3 blasters now open, I will probably bite the bullet and chase the base set but not the chrome except for Cubs. I'll update my want lists tomorrow and move these guys and any other extras over to my trade page by Thursday.

Today's ATCRCS card of the day over on Facebook:


  1. Thanks for the Liriano! I have the same weakness with Bowman. I don't want to buy any more, just pick stuff up through trades, but it seems like if I'm picking something up, that's what it ends up being. The possibility of pulling a Silver Ice card of somebody I want is too much.

  2. I'd love to get that Hamilton Ice card. I don't have a Cubs one, but I could find something else or try to help out with your base needs.
