It has a busy week, busy at work, busy trying to refinance our house. Busy with all that goes with being an overly involved person. I ordered some minor league Bips from Dave over at minorleaguesingles.com , which is a great resource for player collectors, state or college collectors, or any thing where you don't want to buy the whole team set. I got 5 Bips from the minor leagues. Padres, Pirates and Indian minor league cards.
The three Vegas cards I have owned before but I have never seen the others before. Nashua is 1985, Vegas is 86-87 and Toledo is from1997. I plan on cataloging my Bip cards this weekend so I can see what I have and start making a list of what I need. This week I received cards back from three more players that I sent cards to. This week I got cards back from Ryan Webb, Aaron Poreda and Tony, Jr. Gwynn and Poreda each sent back three and Webb one, but that is all that I asked him to sign, since he only has one Padres card. I was really impressed with the signatures of all of them. That puts me at 4/9, they took 14 days which is pretty good. I will use the 2010 Gwynn for my one per year collection and use the 2010 Upper Deck for the player card., I haven't decided which Poreda to use yet.
