Delivery Time! Vintage Goodies Make Any Week Better!

Over the past few weeks, I have been scheduling my posts to appear like clockwork at 8:00 AM EST.  In my head, that seemed like a good time since most people would be awake (or just waking up) and it would give people something to read with the morning coffee.

Unfortunately, based on my blog statistics that idea was hogwash. People must actually work at 8:00 AM EST...or else they are still sleeping.  No matter the reason, the readership didn't seem to be there so after multiple weeks of the 8:00 AM posting schedule I am officially dropping that plan in favor of a new plan:  6:00 PM EST postings.

Will the evening postings work better?  I'm not sure - but I do know the mornings weren't well attended.  Heck, maybe people are simply bored of my many trade posts and Allen & Ginter posts?!

Well, today's post (now appearing at 6:00 PM) is decided non-Gintery.  Instead, it's very much vintage and it's all thanks to blog reader Mark (who doesn't have a blog as far as my records show).  Mark is well known throughout the blog-o-sphere because of his generous PWEs which are often filled with vintage goodies.  For today's post, that's exactly what we have!

Mark sent me a healthy stack of vintage Reds but I went through and picked out my five favorites.

For me, it's unfortunate that I was born in the early 80s because I've never witnessed my favorite team have any sort of prolonged success.  In fact, most people these days don't even know who the Reds are (or where they play)...I can't tell you the number of times someone has seen me wearing one of my Reds hats with the "C" on it and they ask me if it's for the Chicago Cubs.

Speaking of the Cubs though, I guess I can't complain about not having lived long enough to see the Reds have prolonged success...at least the Reds have one World Series win in my lifetime.  The Cubs?  Well, Chicago doesn't have a World Series win in most of our grandparent's lifetimes.

I'm not entirely sure how the above anecdote came to mind looking at the Chaney card.  But hey, it's good to keep my readers on their toes.

Next up, the goofiest looking card in the bunch:  Bob Tolan in a giant windbreaker (and perhaps sweat pants)?

Even the background looks fake - is that a real stadium back there or did Topps use some sort of studio shot here?  I don't even know if Topps had studio shots back in 1972 - but you can't hold that against me, I wasn't born yet.

I don't know all that much about Tolan, but I know plenty about the next fellow.

That's the Hit King himself.

Unfortunately, for as good as Rose was as a player he seems equally douch-like as a person.  His gambling not withstanding, his constant vacillations between conciliatory statements and inflammatory actions (signing nearby Hall of Fame events for example) rubs me the wrong way.  I don't think he cares one iota about his gambling and other transgressions, he only cares that he can't cash in with MLB like he thinks he ought to.  On the other hand, having MLB only allow the Reds to trot out Rose for events with their blessing is almost as annoying as Rose himself.

I think I'll stick with the baseball card version of Rose.

Moving on, we return to our old friend Bob Tolan.

Here, Tolan ditched the ill-fitting windbreaker and donned a two-sizes-too-small jersey for his photo op.  At least he kept the same batting stance - and how about those sideburns?  Doesn't that make you ache for the 70s?

The final card in the bunch is another favorite - and wouldn't you know it that 'ol Tolan shows up in the third card of the post!

Many, many thanks for the great vintage goodies Mark!  As for anyone else, if you want to trade be sure to check out my want list and make an offer!

Club PWE: 2 by 3 Heroes Delivers Again!

I'm still in the process of opening and scanning all the mail that has arrived in the past few weeks (as evidenced by the plethora of "Delivery Time" posts on my blog over the last week or two).  I'm working as quickly as possible to get caught up because I'm about to move into a new house - and I really don't want to move a bunch of envelopes and risk getting things mixed up before I get the chance to properly thank people.  As such, expect a few more Delivery Time posts in the near future...

However, in the immediate future, let's take a look at an PWE from Jeff over at 2 by 3 Heroes.  Jeff runs his own PWE Club of sorts - and I'm happy to be on his mailing list.  Plus, the most recent envelope had some of the coolest stamps that I've gotten on a package in quite some time...
I'm a big fan of the Skylab stamps in particular.

If stamps aren't your thing, that's ok because there were plenty of baseball cards packed within that envelope.  In fact, there was a die cut Votto from immensely frustrating 2008 Upper Deck Timeline set.

I'm still working on that cursed set.  I didn't actually need the Votto for my set but I do still need quite a few other cards.  If you have any of the following I'd love to work out a trade!

2008 Upper Deck Timeline:Base: #235, 300, 308, 336, 341, 345, 356, 361, 363, 366, 373, 374, 375

Moving on to a card that was brand new to my collection - a serially numbered Brian L. Hutner card from the 2001 Pacific set.

I happen to love the '01 Pacific set - it's one of those sets that there is a great chance I'll try to complete at some point in the future (maybe when I finally finish off the '08 UD Timeline set, hah!).  Anyhow, I don't quite understand the serially numbering (why 18/36?) and I don't get why Hunter's premier date is December 5, 2000...  It's even stranger when you realize that Hunter had played for Houston all the back in 1994 (and then Detroit, Seattle, and even a stint in Colorado).

That's why you have to love Pacific though - they are crazy, make no sense, and yet are almost always fun cards to have!

Speaking of fun to have, the little kid in me will probably always get at least a little excited for some Fleer team logo stickers.  Jeff dropped this Reds/Angels beauty in the PWE along with the other cards - and I love it.

Thanks for the great cards Jeff - always fun to get an unexpected envelope in the mail.  As for anyone else, if you'd like to trade be sure to check out my want list and make an offer - I'm still willing to trade before my move - after all, that might mean less cards for me to have to pack up!

Barry Larkin Collection 296: 1998 Circa Thunder - #11

Barry Larkin
Year:  1998
Brand:  Circa Thunder
Card number:  11

On the bright side, the card number is 11 which is perfect for Larkin (matches his uniform number).  On the dark side, the rest of the card is pretty much awful.  The front of the card has a hideous purple background along with some wolverine claw marks (?) at the top of the card.  The back of the card features a second shot of Larkin where he appears to be wearing a poncho and way too tight pajama bottoms.  Heck, even the quote at the top of the back of the card is idiotic:  Why would Jim Bowden say that Larkin has the potential to be a gold glove center fielder?!  Stupid.

One final nail in the coffin?  The 1998 Circa Thunder set has two parallel sets - which means I'm still missing two other Barry Larkin cards from this set.  Ugh.

Delivery Time! A Cardinal Fans Does Me Right.

Surprise mail is fun mail!

The other day, what did my eyes spy residing in my mailbox?

Why, it was a package full of 2014 Allen & Ginter's cards from Roger over at Sportscard Mask-a-Rade.  Roger is a huge Cardinals fan but I won't hold that against him if he keeps sending me great trade packages such as this one!

How great was it?  Well, for starters Roger sent me 14 more base cards that I needed for my set.  I'm painfully close to having the full set complete - can't you help mysterious reader?  In addition to the base cards, Roger completed the remaining short prints that I was missing (four in total).

In addition to all the base set goodies, Roger also put a serious dent in some of my insert want lists.  This included an Air Supremacy card of the F-22 Raptor...

...and a smattering of the Coincidence cards.

Out of the four Coincidence cards, I liked the 1895 Car Crash in Ohio card best since it said that the state of Ohio had only two cars on the road back in 1895...and that those two cars somehow managed to collide with each other that year!

Roger also sent a Natural Wonder card my way as well as a Festivals and Fairs card - plus a couple more of the Pastime's Pastimes cards.

Of the Pastime's Pastimes, the Matt Harvey is clearly the best since he is listed as a Jokester.  The back of the card talks about his segment for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon where Harvey walked around New York City asking people what they thought of Matt Harvey.  I recall seeing that clip make the rounds on the internet back when it happened and it was kind of funny (and I fully admit I wouldn't know Matt Harvey in a crowd of three people).

Finally, and perhaps most excitingly, Roger helped reduce my mini want lists by four.  Since I love minis, I scanned 'em all for you!
Stupid scanner (or else stupid me).  The cards aren't all chopped off at the top, you'll have to trust me on that.

The Blackbeard card is awesome - easily my favorite of the bunch!

Thanks for the great surprise package Roger!  As for anyone else, if you'd like to trade check out my want list and make an offer!  I'm still trying to accumulate a lot of the 2014 Ginter inserts (plus a few more base cards)!

Delivery Time! Off Hiatus Baseball Cards Ginterizes Me (and I Like It)!

Over the past couple of weeks, I've agreed to (and mailed out) quite a few trades.  This is good news since every card I mail out means it's one less card that I have to pack up into a box and carry into my new house!

One recent trade was with Tony over at Off Hiatus Baseball Cards.  Tony is a big Brewers fan which means I now have a place to drop unwanted Milwaukee cards (and virtually every Milwaukee card is an unwanted Milwaukee card in my household)!  Anyhow, I was able to dump a bunch of Brewers on Tony (you can read his end of things here).  In return though, Tony helped me out with a sizable chunk of my 2014 Topps Allen & Ginter's wants!

We'll start our tour of Tony's trade package to me with a card that I don't actually know why it was included.  This is a Firebrand insert of Jose Canseco.

I didn't collect this year's edition of Topps Archives (though I am still working on last year's set).  I also don't collect Canseco - or Athletics, so this one is a mystery.  All that said, I was actually most excited by this card in many ways because I always wanted to see what the Firebrand card were all about.  The things are actually printed on wood and die-cut which is pretty cool.  I have a feeling this card will be in my collection for a long time - unless of course there's a Red (or some other player that I collect) in the set that I could swap for this one.

Moving on to cards that I know why they were included (i.e. they were either Reds or cards from my want list), we find another 2014 Archives insert - this time of Eric Davis (a player that I do collect)!

Tony also threw in a Rob Dibble autograph which is awesome since I love the 1990 Topps set design more than anyone ever should.
The fact that the autograph is on card makes this even sweeter!

Moving on to Allen & Ginter (the real reason this trade took place) - Tony hooked me up with a bunch of the regular sized inserts (20 in all).  Of the 20 regular sized inserts, my favorite was this World's Capitals card of Brussels, Belgium.

The back of the card says that Brussels is a trendy destination for those seeking chocolate and beer among other things.  That line is enough to convince me to make a trek there sometime - my wife can have the chocolate and I can have the beer!

Tony also included a few of the mini inserts (of which I still need a lot more).  I'm a huge sucker for mini inserts in the Ginter brand so the 7 that Tony sent my way were all much, much appreciated.  My favorite two inserts were probably these Larger than Life cards of Hiawatha and Johnny Appleseed.

According to Hiawatha's card, Hiawatha was a peacemaker who proposed the unification of the five Iroquis nations.  That's impressive for sure - and wouldn't it be nice if we had a Middle East Hiawatha these days?!

The final mini card that I'll scan (though all were greatly appreciated) is this card of Ferdinand Magellan.

I've made no secret that I love water, boats, and all related things - probably why I'm working on the original Allen & Ginter's fish set!  The Into the Unknown insert set fits perfectly into my collecting interests - and Magellan was one of the preeminent explorers of history!

Thanks for the great cards Tony!  And, as always, if anyone else has any cards to trade from my want list, make me an offer!

Delivery Time! Play at the Plate Goodies from July!

As I prepare for my big move in a few weeks, I am desperately trying to get caught up with all my trade packages.  Yesterday, I posted a package that arrived only a couple of days ago - today...well...today's package has sat since mid July waiting for me to get to it!  While that might seem like it must be a worthless package, that assumption would be incorrect.  In fact, the package came from Brian over at Play at the Plate and it was chock full of Barry Larkin cards (one of the best kind of trade packages ever)!

In fact, Brian sent me 30 Barry Larkin cards - including quite a few that were brand new to my collection.  While all Larkin cards will eventually get their turn to shine in my ongoing Barry Larkin Collection series, I did want to highlight at least a couple of the cards that Brian sent my way.

First up, a 2000 Fleer Mystique card of Larkin.

Around 2000, Fleer produced what seemed like 2,000 different sets - and most of them had at least one or two ideas in them.  If I remember correctly, Mystique had cards inserted with a dark plastic cover on them that you had to peel off in order to see what card you ended up with.  Gimmicky for sure, but also kind of cool.  I wonder if Topps might do something like someday with their Ginter brand?

As I said, while Fleer usually had some interesting ideas, sometimes that had total flops.  One such flop was their Flair Showcase idea.

The set itself is actually quite nice, but from year-to-year, Fleer changed up the distribution ratios which makes collecting the entire set both frustrating and darn near impossible.  Luckily for me, I only want the Barry Larkin cards (and this particular Larkin card is quite nice)!

Heading to stranger pastures, here we find a Barry Larkin card with a completely destroyed pasture in the background.

Metal Universe is goofy, but I have to admit that I like it.  Unfortunately, I don't know how to make a scan of this card show up well...but you'll have to trust me that the background is a totally devastated field (or maybe a totally leveled forest, it's hard to tell for sure).

Finally, one more visit to Fleer - this time Fleer Ultra.

Brian sent me a pair of Larkin cards from the 2002 Fleer Ultra set that might look the same at first glance but in reality are different.  One is the standard base card while the other is the Gold Medallion parallel from the same set.

Thanks for the great cards Brian!  And, as always, if anyone else would like to trade - check out my want list and make an offer!

Delivery Time! Baseball Card Comeback Hooks Me Up With Allen & Ginter's!

Today marks the first day of school - and so my summer vacation is officially over.  While that's a bummer, I am excited to be teaching once again, this semester I have a pair of sections of Calculus I and a section of The Mathematics of Games and Gambling.  All things considered, it should be a fun semester!

However, while my brain is shifting into autumn mode, my baseball card collection is still clearly on summer time.  Luckily, there are other people out there still thinking in terms of summertime sets as well - including Gregory from the Baseball Card Comeback blog.

Gregory recently sent me a few 2014 Allen & Ginter's cards (some of which I'll show off in a minute) and I was able to help him out with a bunch of his 2014 Heritage needs.  Summer's not dead after all!

I was excited by the trade because Gregory was able to wipe out almost all of the remaining 2014 Topps Allen & Ginter's base cards that I needed.  I'm writing this post a few days before it will go live on the blog - but as of the time of this writing I only need four more base cards for the set (plus a ton of inserts).

Out of the eight base cards from Gregory, my easy choice for favorite is this Sparky Anderson gem.

Oh sure, I wish it showed Sparky as a Red rather than a Tiger, but really it's such a great card that I can't complain at all.  I do think Topps should have at least mentioned Cincinnati by name on the back of Sparky's card so I suppose I do have one minor gripe!

In addition to the base cards, Gregory also had a pair of Pastime's Pastimes that I still needed.

Beltre's pastime is listed as "teammate."  That might take the cake for the lamest pastime that I've seen to date.  Reyes' card says that he has his own reggae album (even though his pastime is listed as philanthropist rather than musical artist).  Pretty cool.

Finally, Gregory also saw that I collect all things Barry Larkin related and sent me four such Larkin cards.  

I know the Pinnacle card is new to me - and that Leaf might be new as well.  That's impressive as I have quite a few Larkin cards in my collection already!

Thanks for the great swap Gregory.  And, as always, if anyone else would like to trade - check out my want list and make an offer!

Cooking Recipe: Super Easy Homemade Refrigerator Dill Pickles

Back when I started this blog, I had envisioned it as included a fair bit of cooking information and recipes.  In fact, in 2008 I even published a couple of recipes (nothing special but it was a start).  Flash forward to 2014 and my blog has hosted a grand total of five recipes...until today.  Today, it's time for recipe #6 and this is probably the best one to date.  It's certainly the easiest to date!

I've always wanted to try making homemade dill pickles, especially since I grow my own cucumbers and you can only have so many salads with chopped up cucumber in it.  The one thing that always held me back is most homemade pickle recipes require boiling stuff on the stove or other such "hot" nonsense.  Who wants to boil stuff in the middle of summer?  Certainly not me.

These pickles are perfect - no cooking required.  All you do is put the jars in the fridge (shaking them occasionally) and then you get to enjoy delicious homemade pickles.  This summer, I've probably made 10-12 jars of pickles, about half of which my wife and I have devoured while the others have been given out as treats to neighbors, friends, and family.  Enjoy!



Super Easy Homemade Refrigerator Dill Pickles

Ingredients:

  • Cucumbers (thinly sliced)
  • Fresh dill
  • Salt
  • Garlic Salt and/or minced Garlic (optional)
  • White Vinegar


How to make 'em:
1.  Slice the cucumbers into thin slices.  Divide the cucumber slices into mason jars - fill to the top.  When I make the pickles, I usually find that three of my home grown cucumbers work for 2-3 small mason jars' worth of pickles.
2.  Add salt to the cucumber slices.  I never measure stuff out but I would say about a teaspoon or maybe a teaspoon and a half of salt for a small mason jar is about right.  I also add a little bit of garlic salt and/or minced garlic to give the pickles the slightest hint of garlic flavor.  Add the dill to the jars.  I always chop the dill up into small pieces but you can leave it in larger "branches" if you prefer.
3.  Screw the lids on the jars and shake the dill, salt, and cucumbers vigorously.  If you do it right, you'll probably open up more space in the jars.  Open the lids and add even more cucumber slices to re-fill the jars.
4.  Add the vinegar.  You will only want to fill the jar about 1/3 of the way with the vinegar.  It will look like there's no where near enough liquid, but trust me, there is!
5.  Once again, screw the tops of the jars closed and shake vigorously.  Put the jars into the refrigerator and simply shake them once in awhile over the next couple of hours.  After about 2-3 hours you can eat the pickles, but they will be best after 6 hours or so.  The pickles should keep for about three weeks but I've never had a jar last that long - they are that good!!

Delivery Time! Catching Up with Collecting Catches Up with Me!

You may have noticed that my posting schedule has basically reduced back down to a single post per day.  For the moment, I'm trying out scheduling for an 8:00 AM post release each day.  I don't know when the most popular time for people to read the blog is (and I doubt it's 8:00 AM on a Saturday) but it's worth a try.  If you think there's a better time (perhaps you've even figured it out), let me know!

Speaking of figuring things out, today's trader is Jared from Catching up with Collecting who has definitely figured out my collecting interests!  Jared recently contacted me saying he had a bunch of Reds that he wanted to unload on me - and I happily accepted.

I had no idea just how high quality the Reds were that Jared had...  You'll have to scroll down to see the best as I'll save it for last!  Instead, let's take a look at some of the other Reds first...

We begin our tour with a 2013 Panini card of Joey Votto.

I've avoided Panini like the plague so far (mostly because my budget is incredibly tight as it is and I can't be going after even more sets) but I have to admit that the Hometown Heroes set is a set that I could see myself collecting (at least if all the cards are as nice as this Votto).  In fact, you can barely tell it's not a fully licensed card thanks to the batting stance in the photograph.

Continuing on the Panini theme, here's a set that I definitely won't collect (though I'm always happy to acquire the Reds of course)!

This is a 2013 Panini Prizm set (with a "z" in the name for no apparent reason).  The entire thing is super chrome-y - but the logo-less hat really ruins the card for me.  It feels like a slightly higher class Post Cereal card (and I am probably dating myself now talking about Post Cereal cards).

Speaking of dating myself, let's roll way back to when I was six years old - 1988.

This is a Sportflics card - back when Sportflics were the "cool kids" on the baseball card collecting block.  I don't think I previously owned this Eric Davis card so it's an instant add to my collection!

While the above cards were most certainly appreciated (and there were a few others that Jared included that I didn't scan), the real highlights of the trade package are the next four cards beginning with this Zack Cozart relic card.

The Reds' 2014 season has been pathetic (and so has Cozart's batting average) but I must say that Cozart can certainly "pick it" in the field.  I think the game-used memorabilia should be from the event the card is celebrating though, don't you?

Moving into serially numbered land, we encounter a relic numbered 65/75 of the Big Donkey.

I love me some Adam Dunn even if most Reds' fans soured on him years ago.  This is another instant add to my collection...but even the two relics paled in comparison to the final two cards from Jared.

First up, my first autograph of the last Reds' player to throw a perfect game:  Tom Browning.

That's a gorgeous card - and the autograph is on card.  I'll even forgive the logo-less hat since I like the card so much.

However, even a Tom Browning autograph pales in comparison to the final card - a Jose Rijo autograph!

This is my first autograph of Rijo as well, and man it's a beauty.  I always LOVED Rijo, so to acquire his autograph is a great addition to my collection!

Thanks so much for all the great card Jared - I can only hope to find something to send back your way that will interest you!  As for anyone else, check out my want list and make an offer if you too would like to trade!

Another Original Allen & Ginter Card from 1889!

If you've looked at my want list lately, you know that I have a wide range sets that I am trying to collect.  For instance, in 2014 I'm working on both Topps Heritage and Topps Allen & Ginter's.  For last year, I'm still working on Allen & Ginter's, Topps Chrome, and Topps Archives.  My want list continues going backwards through the years...all the way back to 1889.

That's right.  1889.  Because last century is still too modern.

You see, I'm also working on one of the original Allen & Ginter's sets:  50 Fish from American Waters.  My newest addition to my oldest collection of cards is the Blowfish - the second card in the set.

I am happy to report that I now own 27 out of the 50 fish in the set!  Here's the back of the card in which you can see all the various (so-called) fish in the set:

The Blowfish card does have a nick out of it on the front (the upper portion of the blowfish) but for a card from 1889, I can't complain at all about the condition!  

Having 27 out of the 50 sets means I'm now sitting at a 54% set completion rate.  That's impressive to me considering how old the cards happen to be!  I hope to continue to add to my set, even if the going is quite slow since the cards are rarely listed for sale on eBay (and even then they have to sell within my price range for me to pick 'em up)!

Delivery Time! More Non-Junk from Jaybarkerfan's Junk!

I've greatly enjoyed spending time blogging here at Nachos Grande (and also over at my LEGO-centric blog Playing with Bricks).  However, even better than my own writing process is the ability to read so many great entries by hundreds of other bloggers!

One particular blogger who happens to have some of the most creative ideas out there is Wes from Jaybarkerfan's Junk.  Recently, Wes came up with an idea that I only wish I could have thought up:  a World Cup of Trading.  The basic idea is that Wes offered up a bunch of hits which people could then claim.  He'd send the hit to the person and in return, the person claiming the hit had to send back a package of whatever.
Wes then picks his favorite from each "pool" (the way he divided the hits) and then I believe it's going to come down to a fan vote for which package was best.  Well, I had to wait to scan and post Wes' package to me until I had a return package mailed to him.  I don't know that I'll win the whole thing (probably won't) but I do hope that Wes likes what I sent him.

Anyhow, we won't worry any longer about Wes' happiness, let's check out my happiness!  Actually, when the initial cards were posted there wasn't anything that I considered a "must have" for my own collection - but I wanted to participate anyhow so I picked something that I think I'll probably have no problem finding a good home for...


Yeah, the Red Sox fans are jealous now, aren't they?!

In true Wes fashion, he threw in a few other freebies that were definitely more in my interest range including a Joey Votto base card from 2014 Allen & Ginter.

I'm still working on the base set (see what I need here) - and I'm also working diligently on the inserts (both regular sized and mini sized).  Speaking of inserts, Wes threw in one of those for me as well:

Finally, Wes threw in a few older Reds' cards including one of Dusty Baker.

After this year's debacle Reds' season, I'm almost missing 'ol toothpick chomper.  Almost.

Oh, and speaking of missing things - where's Bruce's hat?!

Thanks for the cards - and for the fun contest Wes!  As for anyone else, if you'd like to trade be sure to check out my want list and make an offer!

Trade Stack 61: Let's Up the Ante: A Rangers' Parallel Makes for an Even Dozen Cards in the Stack!

Here is how this works:
Every so often (i.e. whenever I feel like it), I will add a card to a "Trade Stack".  Whenever the stack becomes appealing enough to someone, that person needs to comment on the post saying they'd like to claim the stack AND tell me which card they are sending off of my want list.  That's all you have to do - trade me ONE card (or more, of course) card from my want list for the entire stack of cards that I'm offering.  Each time, it will be first come, first serve...so act quickly (unless of course you are a gambler and hope to wait it out until there are 10+ cards in the stack that you want in exchange for a single 2004 UD Vintage card that I am looking for)!

The Trade Stack:
Last update:  8/20/14

I believe my Trade Stacks would disappear a lot quicker if I actually updated them on a somewhat regular basis.  While I can't make that promise, I can promise that today's card is likely to interest somebody out there - so if you see a card you want in the stack, be sure to claim it quickly!  

If you want the stack, remember - all you need to do is offer up any one card from my want list.
