It’s Friday and generally speaking a usual light traffic day on the blog. I had some quick links I’d like to share with my readers. First off there is this delusional woman from eBay who feels her “big huge” lot of 393 cards are going to take your breathe away so much that you are going to shell out between $500 – 1000 for this:
Clicking on the pictures will take you to the auction. I’ve already emailed her and it’s the usual garbage about how she would “lose money” if she listed it any lower. I don’t understand how someone who is a professional eBay seller, and seems like an antique dealer, doesn’t do her homework as to the true value of things. These are the kind of cards that I would consider to be commons. I told her that her cards are worth between a penny to a nickel each. The older football cards are nice, but they are pretty beat up. I just can think of a lot of other ways to spend that kind of dough. I mean you are talking Mickey Mantle autograph money. Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Lou Gehrig relic card money (together as a lot). Anyhow I promised her traffic to her auction so that people can see just how insane this auction is, don’t let me down.
The other topic I wanted to touch on is a funny blog I came across called Bad Touch Baseball. It’s a Tumblr style blog, so a picture a day sort of thing, but oh so funny. Here is an example:
The blog centers around creepy dudes, bushy eyebrows, creepy glasses, gratuitous crotch shots, etc. I think it’s pretty funny and wanted to give him a shout out.
Finally I wanted to get the word out about this year’s Secret Santa. Last year we had about a dozen guys that were in on it and I think it went really well. I would like to host it again this year. So if you are interested in joining let me know and I’m thinking the sooner we start this the better so that we can get our shopping done sooner.
