Second Blog Trade!

The Chambers Brothers - Time Has Come Today by Tushratta

It has been waaaaaaaayy too long since I last posted.  Between work, my scanner going on strike, and not being home too much lately I haven't been able to spend as much time here as I want to.  But that ends now!

I received a package last week from Night Owl that satisfied both of our Opening Day blaster strikeouts (no Dodgers for him, zero Cubs for me).  In addition to that, I was surprised to receive some stuff from my want list as well as some other Cubs I didn't have.  

I wish I could show you more of what he sent me.  However after this was scanned every time I try to scan something a high-pitch screech is heard and nothing happens.  The good news is there were many other cards scanned before these that I wanted to put up here for one reason or another that have yet to make an appearance.  Also, I did have one other card he sent me in this scan and it's by far my favorite:

My collection is still small enough that I can still be regularly amazed by some of the stuff that I didn't know was out there.  The 2008 Masterpieces set was completely unknown to me but I've since picked up the Soriano card as well.


  1. I think it was the combination of Scott Eyre & Steve Trachsel going in next that finally made it lay down & die. I thought I could get away with faking a scan of nothing but Santo and Banks cards but it knew, it knew..
