A weeks worth of Bip!

This week I went through my stuff and found 25 different Bips to start my player collection with, I have multiples of the iconic 1987 Topps.  I am trying to see how many different Bips I can acquire I got a checklist off of Beckett.  However it doesn't have anything before 1986 on it.  I have even managed to trade some of my cards from the Topps Million Card Giveaway for some Bips.  Also I will be the latest to sing the praises of checkoutmycards.com, I got out almost 20 Bip Roberts cards for $13.  I will be going there more often to get Bipped, most of the cards I got there were with the Reds, but I got one Indians card, and one Royals card.  I also got a set of minor league cards from 1984 of the Prince William Pirates.  Bip is in the set as is Joe Charboneau and Felix Fermin, two batboys getting their 15 minutes of fame and some guy named Scott Borland who is identified as Rep.  What the Rep?  Also Craig "Crash" Brown, I wonder if he is the inspiration for Crash Davis in "Bull Durham".

The Pirates minors cards are sweet, especially the Bip and Super JOe.

"WHY ON EARTH WOULD YOU BUY BIP ROBERTS CARDS?!?!"

Is exactly what my girfriend said when I returned from the card shop with fifty four Bips yesterday!

:) I just posted about my first time getting Bipped. Alas, but one actual Bip. :(
