Falling Behind is Imminent

I'm behind in trade posts (and definitely a couple of trades) once again, but that doesn't mean I won't get around to it eventually. You know I'll get around to it... eventually. To tide you over, I still have that giveaway going on. With thirty participants so far, I have added 6 free cards to the pot!

Meanwhile, Josh from Royals and Randoms is literally waiting by the mailbox this very moment for his Royals (and randoms) from yours truly. He was foolish enough to send me some cards that I needed, and here are some of them.

There are many things going on with this new-to-me Jim Edmonds card, not the least of which is that it looks like garbage when you scan it. This seems to be the case for a lot of cards from 1995 to 2004.

Someone wasn't overly impressed by all of the boring pitcher close-ups in this year's Topps Series 2 product, but things could always be worse. John Martin's '82 'Russ card is proof of that. (Does anyone else call Donruss "'Russ"?)

On to the Erin portion of the package, here's a pinstripe card of Larry Walker and his Cool Guy shades. Remember when only Cool Guys wore shades?

Here's Larry, sans shades, on a round card. There should be more round cards. Today's cards have too many sharp, pointy edges, consarn it!

Sometimes you get a stack of 2003 Topps cards. And sometimes you gotta scan Jeff Suppan.

  1. Dear Diary,

    The wait has been long and arduous.

    Supplies are low. I ate my last granola bar today.

    Dysentery is setting in with each day I sit here by the mailbox. I don't know how much longer I am left for this world.

    The mailman doesn't even make eye-contact anymore....just a sad shake of his head as he goes on his way.

    The nights are long and cold. My shoes are tattered and worn.

    Is this what I've become? Is this what Larry Walker has done to me!!??!!?!

    I suppose I could go back inside the house, but it's 50 feet away and I've been out here long enough that I don't want all that time to be wasted...
