Song of the Week #5.

I just know this song from a youtube mix. It's pretty obscure and doesn't really fit into my overall my music taste but it's pretty good. Sidenote:  Yesterday I finally got my Christmas post out but it only has 13 views. Why? I was really bored yesterday so I kept on checking how many people had viewed it. To do that I have to click the little blogger icon on the left-hand corner. However, I use my Dad's account and my Dad had used his blog last so I had to make a blank new post and then delete it. Even though I deleted it immediately it showed up on the blogrolls and my Christmas post got buried underneath so if you could scroll down and check it now that would be great. Thanks.

My Christmas. ( Finally!)

Hallelujah!!! I can finally show my pictures on my blog again! I can now finally recount the strange happenings of Christmas day, 2018. As you can see, I got a nice 1941 Play Ball Lefty Gomez. It is really beautiful, however, the case slightly hampers it. Here it is without it's case:
It does look better! But that's not all I got!
This one actually got here while we were away. Rather nice having what I'm pretty sure off the top of my head is a 1935 Diamond Stars card. However, I could be wrong.
This is actually my 1st 1934 Goudey and it looks pretty good. John(y) Allen actually once went 15-1 and was 142-75 for his career. He might have or might not have used a spitball but that's pretty good.
Lot's of nice Stratomatic!
Actually, my Christmas is still going! My aunt Martha apparently told a friend or neighbor that I collected baseball cards and there heading my way! I kind of wish people would tell you there sending you stuff a day or two before you get it so you have a little time to anticipate but don't waste away in waiting. Whatever those cards may be, 80s cards or vintage topps, I 'll be glad to get them!
P.S Don't forget to check out my song of the week! It'm afraid it will be hidden under this post1

i got my cards from the mega break!!

however, i'm currently not able to post them all because not all of the images are on tcdb. i also checked on ebay but when i got it on here the pictures turned out way,way,way, too big. anyway, i'm still going to post the ones i got. this is the 1st time iv'e ever  entered any kind of break but  i really enjoyed it. especially as it was free. the guy who did it, wes at area 40, even was the 1st commenter on my blog!
2011 Topps Gypsy Queen - Framed Paper #47 Jimmy Rollins Front
2004 Topps Clubhouse Collection #BM Brett Myers Front
here is a rather dry list of the other cards i got:
2011 topps gypsy queen framed paper jimmy rollins /999
2018 topps big league foil maikel franco /100
2005 topps pack wars relics jim thome
2005 topps pack wars foil bobby abreu /56
2002 topps 206 framed mini auto jimmy roliins 
2011 topps lineage diamond anniversary foilish thing roy oswalt
2004 topps clubhouse collection relics mike schmidt&jimmy rollins.
what kind of annoys me is that early on in the picking of teams i found it but didn't really know what it was about so i shelved it. and by the time i actually picked my team only the phillies were left! however, it all turned out okay and i got some nice cards!

song of the week #4.

in " the song of the week" i prefer to do lesser known and kind of hole in the wall songs. this feature is here really to spread the good news. i was originally going to do "magic carpet ride" by steppenwolf but i decided it was too well known.however, if you haven't heard it yet i definitely advise for you to check it out.

I'm going to the HOF induction!

Yes, you read that correctly! I am going to the HOF induction this year! We're going because Mariano Rivera, my favorite player, is a lock for the hall, Mike Mussina, who is my Dad's favorite pitcher, is probably going to the hall, and Curt Schilling, another guy who my Dad really likes. This is obviously a once-in-a-lifetime event. Better yet, it's on my Mom's birthday and we are usually in NY visiting relatives anyway at that time!I'm really, really excited about it!!!

This morning I finally got my pictures form Christmas into a folder. However, some technical difficulties intervened and I'm not able to do the Christmas post until my Mom fixes it.However, last night, my Dad put on 2 awesome songs by Frank Zappa which I now love. I mean, I've played them both 5-8 times this morning already. I'm listening to them right now in fact. Listen to the end of Cosmik Debris. Cosmik Debris is better.
