Trade Stack 63: A New Stack Begins with a T-205 Insert!

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:  11/30/14

The previous Trade Stack ended up being claimed after nine cards were added to the stack.  Since I have that stack all packaged up and ready to be mailed, it's time to start a brand new Trade Stack!  This time around, we shall see if the stack ends up getting claimed a bit quicker...and I have a feeling it just might!

2008 Topps:
Target (?) Exclusive T-205 Insert:
TCP6.  Joey Votto - Reds


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

Want the card(s) in the stack?  Act fast - tell me which card you will send me off my want list in the comments below!  You must leave a comment on the trade stack post in order to claim the card - no more claims via email!  If no one claims this card within a reasonable amount of time (a few hours up to a few days, depending) - I'll add another card to the stack and the process will start again!

Theme Week: Better Know a Blogger - Call for Participants!

It's been quite some time since I've done a themed week here at Nachos Grande.  For those that might not be aware of my practice, once in awhile I pick a particular theme (maybe a specific card set, a certain player, or even a general concept - like dinosaurs) and then build a week's worth of posts around that one specific theme.

For this coming week, I thought it might be fun to expand my Theme Week to the blogosphere - so here's where you come in.  My plan is to host a

BETTER KNOW A BLOGGER

theme week.  Each day, I hope to have a volunteer (or more if the responses are favorable) answer a series of questions that I will email them and then post the results on my blog.  In this way, a new (or established) blogger can get a bit of publicity...and we can all get to better know him or her!

The questions that I will email any volunteers (and you can volunteer by emailing me at fanofreds (dot) auctions (at) gmail (dot com) (note:  both fanofreds and auctions are plural) need to be filled out soon so that I can prepare the Theme Week.  My goal will be to use NEXT week for the posts which will give everyone who volunteers about a week to get back to me with their answers.

Again, if you are interested in having the blogging community get to better know you, shoot me an email for my questionnaire!

The Trade Stack:
Last update:  11/29/14

I spent the past two days in Vermont which meant the blog was on autopilot.  Now that I've returned home, it's time to get rid of this Trade Stack!  As of this post, the stack sits at a rather robust nine cards - and all nine cards represent different teams.  Surely someone out there likes the Angels, Twins, Reds, Orioles, Yankees, Pirates, Giants, Royals, or Rangers - right?  Perhaps a 1982 Topps card is of interest - or a die-cut card - or some sort of shiny card.  You get them all with a simple trade of any ONE card off my want list!

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

A Black Friday Pack Rip x3!

I mentioned a few days ago that I received a Fairfield Repack box from my brother for my birthday.  The other day I decided to do a short video of me busting the three packs that were in the repack box.  Enjoy!

 Oh, and to answer the question that I posed in the video:  Did I end up needing any of the Topps Chrome cards?

The answer was yes!  I actually needed two of the three base cards that I pulled - awesome!

The USPS Cares: Their "Body Bags" Tell You So.

As anyone who has ever traded baseball cards (or anything else) through the mail will tell you, one of the worst sights to see in your own mailbox is the United States Postal Service "body bag."

I had the unfortunate experience of a letter in a body bag arriving in my mail box this past week...

I think the fact that the envelope was totally mutilated was bad enough...but sticking that annihilated envelope in a plastic bag emblazoned with "WE CARE" in all caps?  Now that really gets my goat.

Delivery Time! "O" No? "O" Yes!

Ryan, from "O" No!!! Another Orioles Blog, recent offered up a bunch of trade bait including some 2014 Topps Allen & Ginter's minis.  I'm still in need of a ton of minis from this year's set so I immediately claimed what I could - which ended up being a pair of minis!

First, a rather interesting Jesse James mini from the Outlaws, Bandits, and All-Around Ne'er Do Wells set.

I think "Ne'er Do Wells" is criminally underused in today's baseball card markets...  The back of the card describes James as a charismatic robber of banks, trains, and stagecoaches.  Seems like a swell guy.

The other mini was a "World's Deadliest Predators" card of the Black Eagle.

The Black Eagle makes it home in tropical Asia and feasts on squirrels, birds, and even nested eggs.

Thanks again for the minis Ryan - and hopefully by the time you read this your cards will have arrived!  As for anyone else, if you'd like to trade be sure to check out my want list and then make an offer!

Barry Larkin Collection 317: 1994 Post Cereal - #12

Barry Larkin
Year:  1994
Brand:  Post Cereal
Card number:  12

When I was a kid, I didn't eat a lot of Post cereal except when the boxes promised baseball cards inside.  At that point, I was the biggest Post cereal connoisseur around!  I'm sure my parents saw right through my ruse but luckily for me, they still bought me the cereal.

This particular Barry Larkin card is from the 1994 Post Cereal set.  That set isn't nearly as nice as some of the other Post sets (such as the set from the year before - or the 2002 set)!  In general, I don't usually like the fake signature as part of the set design - and this particular set suffers from the fake signature as well as the overwhelming amount of marble green.  Green does not mix well with the early 90s Reds' uniforms!

Birthday Haul! One of the Best Autographs in my Collection!

Last Tuesday I celebrated my 32nd birthday.  Now, I've often heard that the older you get the less birthdays matter, or at least, the less birthdays are exciting.

I beg to differ.

My 32nd birthday was pretty great really - in fact, I ended up getting lots of great gifts, plus I had two different deserts made for me - and I spent my birthday evening playing cards with friends and family.

You really can't beat that.

Now, not all of my birthday gifts are probably of interest to my baseball card readers (such as some LEGO Series 12 minifigure packs)...but I think this one is of particular interest to my readers:

Yep, that's my first Ken Griffey Jr. autograph in my collection!  The little beauty was courtesy of my brother and his wife (though I imagine my brother's wife had very little to do with picking out that card for me)!

In addition to the Griffey Jr. autograph, my brother also bought me one of those Fairfield repack boxes.

The one he got me advertises one memorabilia card plus three unopened packs in it.

My three packs?  Not the most overwhelming options...

Yeah, that's two packs of 2013 Topps Series 2 and one pack of 2013 Topps Chrome.

However, while the pack selection may not have been super exciting, I was happy since I'm still attempting to complete the 2013 Topps Chrome set.  I actually still need a lot of cards from that set - so hopefully I land at least one that I need within the four cards from that pack!

In addition to the three packs, the repack box also promised one hit.  The hit came in a white envelope (protected by a penny sleeve).  My hit?

A Yankee...

At least this is:
A)  Numbered out of 1000.  In particular, it's #0210/1000.
B)  From a high end set (2002 Topps Pristine)

I actually like the card design quite a bit on this one - and it's definitely shiny!  I probably wouldn't have been all that happy to open a box of 2002 Topps Pristine and pull this card...but a relic numbered out of 1000 from a repack box?  Yes please!

A big thank you to my brother and his wife - this was a fun gift to open..and I still have the three packs to rip which I'll (maybe) do on video at some point in the near future!

Barry Larkin Collection 316: 1994 Fleer - #414

Barry Larkin
Year:  1994
Brand:  Fleer
Card number:  414

The 1994 Fleer set is almost criminally underrated by most baseball card collectors.  I seriously have no idea why people don't hold this set in higher esteem.  I would guess that the fine folks that worked at Fleer in 1994 felt the same way...so as a big "F U" to everyone they unleashed this base set monster in the following year.

Turning our attention back to the 1994 Fleer set, you get a pair of nice images of Larkin (one on the front and one on the back) plus a large team logo on the front (which I love).  The biggest drawback to the design is the foil lettering for the name and position.  I wish card companies didn't love foil so much - it's difficult to read!  I also prefer my card numbers at the top of the card rather than the bottom...but even with those two minor quibbles this is a nice looking card!

Taking a closer look at this card, I think I could even be convinced to complete the 1994 Fleer set at some point in the future!

Trade Stack 62: I Don't Feature Many Twins...

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:  11/22/14

Tonight's addition to the trade stack grows the pile to a total of eight cards.  We may not yet have reached the tipping point where someone simply says "screw it, that's a lot of cards" and offers up a trade...but I have a feeling we are getting close!  

In an effort to expedite the claiming process, today's card marks both a new team to the stack and a new set for the stack.  It's not often you have the chance to acquire a no-name catcher from the Twins in the form of a 1992 Fleer card.  

See, I knew I could sell you on the Trade Stack.

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

1992 Fleer:
220.  Lenny Webster - Twins


1992 Fleer Ultra:
192.  Hal Morris - Reds

1982 Topps:
776.  Mark Belanger - Orioles

2008 Upper Deck X:
Die-Cut Silver Parallel:
71.  Robinson Cano - Yankees

1987 Topps:
131.  Pirates' Team Leaders - Pirates

2012 Bowman Chrome:
146.  Elvis Andrus - Rangers

1993 Topps:
10.  Will Clark - Giants


2008 Upper Deck Goudey:
88.  Billy Butler - Royals



Want the card(s) in the stack?  Act fast - tell me which card you will send me off my want list in the comments below!  You must leave a comment on the trade stack post in order to claim the card - no more claims via email!  If no one claims this card within a reasonable amount of time (a few hours up to a few days, depending) - I'll add another card to the stack and the process will start again!

Barry Larkin Collection 315: 1993 Upper Deck - #R13 - Reggie Jackson's Clutch Performers Insert

Barry Larkin
Year:  1993
Brand:  Upper Deck
Insert set:  Reggie Jackson's Clutch Performers
Card number:  R13

The Reggie Jackson's Clutch Performers inserts were seeded in Series 2 retail packs and hobby jumbo packs.  The set consists of 20 different players that Reggie Jackson (supposedly) selected as having performed well under pressure.

Personally, I'm not a fan of having another player's name (or fake signature) on a Barry Larkin card.  As such, the gold Reggie Jackson fake signature on the front basically ruins the front design for me.  Unfortunately, the news is even more dire on the reverse of the card because you are greeted by a black and white photograph of Reggie Jackson sporting his Yankees hat.  Yuck!

Keep the Yankees off my Barry Larkin cards please!

A Look Back at my 2014 New Year's Resolutions (One Month Left to Complete Them!)

Back in January, I made a short list of 2014 New Year's Resolutions that were specific to the blog and my hobbies.  With only a month left in the year 2014, I figured it would be a good idea to take a quick peek at my list and see if I:
A)  Have completed any of my original goals
B)  Have a shot at completing any goals that aren't yet done
or
C)  Totally suck at completing goals.

My first goal was to complete at least five sets from a list of 15 selected sets from my want list.  By my count, 14 of the 15 sets I had listed still haven't been reduced by even a single card.  This is about as close to a total fail as one could get in terms of completing a resolution.  Luckily, there is still another month...

My second goal was to grow my Barry Larkin Collection to at least 300 cards before the end of 2014.  Unlike my first goal, I actually completed this goal already (and then some)!  In fact, as of yesterday, I have posted 314 different Barry Larkin cards from my collection.  Even better, I still have another 100 Larkin cards fully scanned (front and back) waiting in my "to be posted" folder on my computer!  I'll be all set for this goal in 2015!

My third goal was to not lose money on my various hobbies.  I ended up not paying much attention to what I spent but I can safely say that I lost money since I basically didn't sell anything of note on eBay this year.  In fact, I didn't pull anything of note this year...  I had one of the worst years of opening Allen & Ginter's ever - so my hopes of breaking even were basically dashed back in July.

My fourth goal was to complete at least 100 trades with blog readers.  While the year isn't over, I'm sitting at a paltry 65 completed trades so unless there is a huge flurry of trade activity in December this will be another goal where I'll fall short.

My final goal was to expand the reach of my blog.  I don't have any good way of measuring that besides the fact that I have traded with a few new people this year and I did have a few new people join my Topps Stadium Club group break.  According to blog stats, I haven't seen a noticeable uptick in readership (but happily, I haven't seen a noticeable decline in readership either).

Looking back at my progress through 11 of the 12 months, I would say I have some serious work to do if I'm going to complete my original 2014 Resolutions.  In fact, I can say for sure that one of the five goals was met (the Barry Larkin Collection) completely.  I'll give myself a pass on the final goal - but that still leaves lots of trading and lots of acquiring cards from my want list as the two main outstanding goals to be completed in December.

Of course, I can't do that without your help - so please check out my want list and make an offer!

The Trade Stack:
Last update:  11/20/14

Trade requests have been way, way down lately (at least for me) which is probably because I haven't opened any new product (besides the Stadium Club group break) since Topps Allen & Ginter's came out.  I keep thinking that eventually I'll get a trade when someone finally decides to jump in on my Trade Stack - but the only way to have that happen is for me to continue to add cards to the stack!

As of this post, the Trade Stack is now up to 7 cards including a die-cut insert.  That's a pretty good haul for any one card off my want list, don't you think?

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