More Ginter minis!

This is going to be a short post since I'm writing this on less then two hours sleep because I thought it was a good idea to stay up late to watch the playoffs. How about Halladay? What a game he had!
Anyway I got an unexpected package from John of Pursuit of 80's(ness) the other day. In the package was a stack of 2010 Ginter and also six new minis. Theres no pictures today since my camera is still without batteries.
He sent me two regular backs of Papelbon (SP) and Gallardo. Really happy with the Papelbon since I didnt expect any Sox cards from a Sox fan.
There were also two Ginter backs of Matt Holliday and Matsui.
One black bordered card also featuring Matsui.
Finally a National Animal card of New Zealand featuring the most fierce and dangerous animal ever... the Sheep.
Thanks for the cards John, expect something from me within the next few days.
I picked up a Topps Chrome hobby box last night! and was refunded for it a few hours after paying. I had a feeling that was going to happen since the guy was only charging $8 for shipping rather than the expected $15 to $25.
Its probably a good thing he refunded me since I've spent way too much this month on cards but at the same time a little disappointed.


  1. I've not bought anything from America on Ebay & I'm not thinking of for a bit, as Comc works & SCR box breaks are cool, looking forward to Matt's break.

  2. That sucks.I guess you could complain to e bay about it.$48 for Topps Chrome is a total steal.You just know that box had the Strasburg Super in it.

  3. Simon, that's exactly what I thought when the refund came through! I have a horrible feeling that it contained a super or at least an auto of strasburg. I could make a complaint but I cant see it going anywhere. I could pick up another box for $60 shipped so I'm thinking of doing that.

  4. I still think he has the boxes listed for the same price.I have been toying with the idea of getting a box,but I think I may have a crack at Donruss Elite instead.I have got the prospecting bug!!!
