So done with Heritage

Don't worry, there's no rant. I just got back from a card show. I'm in too happy of a mood for rants.

This is just a simple post to say that I think I'm done buying 2014 Heritage. After one hot box blaster and a couple of rack packs, I landed Kershaw above and the following other Dodgers:

That's pretty good for me. I'm usually not nearly as effective in my Dodger-pulling power.

But just to go one notch higher on the effective scale, I found a binder of Heritage at the card show and went to work finding as many Dodgers as I could find.

I found a lot:

That's a nice mix of base, short-prints and inserts.

It cost me less than a blaster and I'm quite pleased about not having to wait until July to land the last Dodger SP, as I've done in the past.

The question is: do I have all the non-parallel Dodgers from 2014 Heritage?

Well, I don't know. It's so early in the game that I haven't even gotten around to compiling a want list. I think there's a Brian Wilson card and another Kershaw leaders card. Probably a few other inserts, too.

But I'm pretty proud of pouncing on these so early. And happy there won't be any more trips to the card aisle in hopes of unearthing a Heritage Dodger.

But, go ahead, tell me what Dodger card or cards I'm still missing.

You can't spoil my mood.

I'm back from a card show.

(More cards tomorrow).

Those are some nice looking cards. The 1965 set is one of my favorites from the 60s (along with 1960, 1963, and 1967). I might have to do some Heritage collecting this year.

Nicely done! Heritage keeps drawing me back like a moth to a flame

Whoops. You have an additional Kershaw NAP card coming to you via PWE from me. Please pay it forward to one of your fellow Dodgers fans if you don't need it.

You're almost there... here are a few others you might want to grab:

Base Cards:
#10 Kershaw/Zimmerman/Wainwright
#101 Brian Wilson
#219 Michael Young

Cheaper Inserts:
Flashback #BFSK Sandy Koufax
Then & Now #TANWE Maury Wills/Jacoby Ellsbury

And not sure if you're into SP's... but Kershaw, Kemp, Puig, Ramirez, & Ryu have "action" variations. Puig has an additional "logo" variation as well.

I'd tell you what you're missing.... but chances are someone has already sent you what you need.

Stuck in traffic with Series 2

In the whirlwind that has been my life this month, I found myself going absolutely nowhere for a portion of Thursday afternoon. I was in the middle of yet another road trip, the third one this week. This one was for work, and because it was job-related, it became quickly apparent that it would be a waste of time. The only thing that could save it was a side visit to the nearby Walmart to see if I could spot some Topps Series 2. I found it right away, which was shocking as I was pretty much in the middle of the country, where SUVs share the road with tractors and buggies. Who knew that the Amish wanted Series 2, too? The problem was getting back into civilization to open the contents of the 72-card hanger box I bought. The neighboring village is undergoing a summer construction project smack in the middle of downtown. It's not much of a downtown, but the main road happens to be the main artery in the entire county. Everyone -- and by everyone I mean every tractor trailer ha

Heading upstate

  Back in 1999, Sports Illustrated published an edition at the end of the year rating the top 50 athletes of the century for every state.   As a lifelong Upstate New Yorker, I braced for a list of New York State athletes that consisted almost entirely of downstate natives, that is, folks from the greater NYC area and Long Island.   We Upstaters are used to New York City trampling all over the rest of the state. They have the most people, the loudest voices. It happens all the time. It's a phenomenon unique to this state. Heck, there are still people out there who, when you tell them you're from New York, automatically think you're from NYC. They don't think of cows and chickens when they think of New York. But trust me, there are a lot of cows and chickens in New York State. Especially cows.   So, anyway, when I counted up the baseball players that SI listed as the greatest from New York State, six of the nine were from New York City or Long Island. I was surprised all

G.O.A.T, the '80s: 30-21

  I often call this current period of the television sports calendar the black hole of sports programming. The time between the end of the Super Bowl and the beginning of televised Spring Training baseball games is an empty void when I'm looking for something to watch on traditional television. I don't watch the NBA and I find the NHL on TV holds my interest for maybe a period. College basketball I can't watch until the tournament. This didn't used to be as much of a problem back when I could turn instead to my favorite sitcoms in February. Do you remember when February was "sweeps month"? (Maybe it still is, I don't know). Networks would make sure that every top show aired original episodes that month, no reruns. So you'd always have something to view during the week even when the sports scene was boring. (I know, people have multiple streaming viewing options now. But I find myself going weeks sometimes before I see something I want to view on Netfli
