The Round-Up for 5/29/11: I'm gettin' there.

Here, look at El Duque! He was one hell of a weapon for those '05 Chisox.

Finally feeling up to rapid-fire posting again. Night Owl will be psyched! How's everyone doing? I'm gettin' better, finally, I think for real this time. Speaking of Night Owl, here's a few I got from him in a recent trade...

Gettin' closer to that '84 set that I have to talk to Fuji about. A rare "average" main shot of Pedro, but he salvages it by looking incredibly suave in the inset photo!

Darryl, on the other hand, looks like he's about to go wrap that bat around someones' neck. Who could it be? Roger McDowell was gone, so he didn't just get a hot foot from him (or any slurs). Opposing team, maybe? I dunno, but he looks like he's got a mean mood on. This is from a '91 Star set of him. I don't have a lot of cards from Star. They're kinda alien to me. I'll take those Jordans (as if...), Reggies and even Cansecos if you've got 'em, folks! In the meantime, thanks for the cards, Owl, and enjoy yours! I'd have posted more, but we did a bunch of Heritage and Goodwins, and I know how sick of looking at those y'all are right now.

Let's see, what else is up? Pro Debut comes out on Wednesday. Maybe I'll pull a Harper in his Hagerstown uniform. Probably not, though. Had good luck with Series One of last year, as it turns out. I was looking through those the other day and I got not one, but 2 Eric Hosmers (a base and an insert) that I didn't pay much mind to at the time, but I'm happy to have now that he's doin' some decent business for the Royals.

Week after that, we get Topps Series 2, and that feeding frenzy begins. I'm pretty amazed that I've got Series 1 and most of base Heritage done already at the end of May, and I wouldn't have been able to do that without you folks, so thanks for that. Will I keep it up? Stay tuned!

Might have a very busy birthday this year. First off is Dr. Wax's next card show in the morning, and I won BlueClaws tickets for the same day! I was thinking of trying to set up a table at the show for at least a couple of hours, but I'm still on the fence because Lakewood plays Hagerstown, and Harp's still there as of this writing, anyway. That'll probably be the deciding factor, and as it's still a new show, I will hopefully have some latitude as far as when I decide. I think it'll be fine either way.

That's it for now. More later this week, including a hopefully-on-time Player Of The Month!
