If America is first, let the Netherlands be second !!!

Usually I don't get involved in politics on my blogs but there were of course some big changes in the US political landscape in recent months. As a result, it seems it's now all about "America First"...and in that case of course, we want to be 2nd !!




Thanks for visiting my blog and as every post deserves a card, here's one of my latest Rizzo additions from 2016 Triple Threads.

Supersized Glavine & Die-Cut Rizzo

Hi everyone, quick post today with a few of my new additions. First up a cool die-cut Anthony Rizzo card that appeared on eBay a few months ago. I haven't checked yet from which set this one is coming from, might be Topps Update.


I was also able to pick up two larger size Glavine cards. Apparently, Topps sells these directly into the market and these are not from packs. They have variations numbered to 49 and to 10. The ones below are the the ones numbered to 49.



Not sure what to think about these. They look pretty cool given they are a much larger size, so something different. At the same time it feels a bit like another avenue for Topps to get my money and I now see them popping up constantly for most sets, which feels a bit like overkill again. But hey, as a Glavine supercollector what can I do :-)

What do you guys think about these ?

Happy New Year !!

Happy New Year everyone !!! Yes, a few days late but as you might have figured I am still swamped with a lot of other stuff, hence my lack of posting in the last few months. Just wanted you all to know I am still here, alive and kicking, and more importantly, collecting !!

My Glavine collection has been steadily growing, as has my Blyleven collection. Kershaw is still on the way out (but still plenty for sale / trade so see my Kershaw list). I am behind with my Want list and Trade Bait as I still need to add my 2016 Gypsy Queen loot as well as 2016 Series 1& 2 and my Allen & Ginter needs. Hopefully I will have some time in the coming weeks to get up to speed on this one !!

Hope you are all still going strong ! Rest assure (in case you were worried, of course) that I am still following your blogs on a daily basis !!

As every posts needs some cards here are some of my latest additions ! First up a nice addition to my Glavine collection with Carlton and Zito as a bonus !





 Next up, from this year's Panin's Immaculate, here's Blyleven, together with some old stars !

Last, but certainly not least, 2 Allen & Ginter printing plates, Magenta and Yellow !!





Thanks for visiting my blog and sticking with me !! Hope to be back soon !!

Some new COMC loot & Topps Bunt

Quick update to increase my postcount for October as I have been slacking a lot again in recent weeks and of course busy following the World Series. I was hoping for some Cubs magic and Rizzo with some HRs but instead they are behind 3-1 so a mountain to climb.

On the card collecting front I have downloaded Topps Bunt but not sure what to make of it just yet. Any of you active with Topps Bunt ? Any view on it, worth time spend on it or should I not invest in time in the App ?

Anyways, I just received a COMC package. Here is some of the loot, a few Glavine and Blyleven cards !!




Thanks for visiting my blog again !

My last batch of Kershaws

The last batch of COMC Kershaw cards arrived last week. As I announced recently, I am letting go of my Kershaw collection and are planning so sell most of the cards over the next few quarters and years, whenever there is interest. So if you are interested in some of these do let me know. My complete collection of Kershaw cards can be found here.

Game of Thrones

Usually I don't do much non-baseball cards but when it comes to Dutch actors I make happily make exceptions !! One of which is Carice van Houten in Game of Thrones. I love this series and she plays a cool part as well.

So when I noticed one of the auto cards on eBay I chased it quickly !! Here's it is, my latest addition to my collection !!

Any of you fans of Game of Thrones ?


Group Break Loot !!

A few months ago I participated in one of Chris' Group Breaks at Nachos Grande. If I remember correctly the group break was for a few boxes of Finest as well as some boxes of Donruss. I got the Dodgers in the break and was allocated the Indians as well. Here's some of the loot !

First up a few Corey Seager cards, both from the Donruss boxes !! The Elite Series cards looks pretty cool and is numbered to 999.


Next up a cool insert card from Topps Finest, Franchise Finest ! I always like the look and feel of Topps Finest cards.


Another insert came my way, I USA Baseball card of KJ Harrison. It looks kinda cool !


I even was lucky enough to get one of the hits !! A Topps Finest Auto of Indian Kluber !!


All cards are for trade so let me know in case of any interest. Thanks Chris for a fun break, looking forward to the next one !
