A Winning Result

Over on the FreedomCardBoard.com message boards, yours truly won a box of 2010 Topps. Now, being stationed in Germany just makes the win even sweeter, since I have nowhere to go to get hobby boxes (there is a little retail stuff at the AAFES (kind of a military WalMart), but there is a poor selection), so this will be my first taste of in person 2010 Topps.

Not sure of the SP's or the odds of pulling a game used or autograph card, but if anyone needs anything from Series I (besides Astros and Million Card Giveaway), feel free to let me know.

In other news, I head out into the field next weekend for a three week training exercise preparing our unit for our upcoming deployment. Now, we don't deploy until sometime in mid-June, but every unit needs to make sure they are prepared and game planned (think of it as our Spring Training). Sadly enough, I will not have internet out there, so there will be no new posts in that time frame (unless I can knock out a few to leave in the queue and just have sitting on the back burner). Not like anyone would really notice, since I have been updating the blog less regularly this month then I did last month.

Which bring me to another point: being able to come up with different content every day, week and month. I have been finding it hard to sit down and crank out a post or three, with little on my mind. The solution? Three or four posts a week...but all centered on different cross sections of baseball. I plan on having one post a week on baseball cards, another on fantasy baseball and one on the game itself, be it the current season or seasons past. Plus, if I find it interesting enough, I plan on throwing in additional posts/content weekly on just random things going on inside my head or in my own personal life.

Anyways, here's hoping I get the box in by Friday, so I can have a juicy post full of scans of the latest of Topps flagship product.

  1. First I must say Thank You! I have the utmost respect for our military and truly appreciate everything you men and women do for our country. Good luck and may God watch over you where ever your deployment takes you.
    With that being said, I think you will like the 2010 Topps when you get them. To me they have an old school feel with a modern crispness. I did a jumbo box break and was very happy with the results. I have the details over on my blog. I can use any Mets or Yankees if you aren't keeping the whole box. Regardless please send me your address and I will send you some Astros cards.
