Mail Day

Another quickee...

I bought this off of the Electronic Bay weeeekkkksss ago and it finally arrived on my door step.

I've been having trouble finding this and I found it for an excellent price and jumped all over it!

Love this card!  I believe I just need Palmer and Ripken for all of the Oriole relics, but we all know I'm going for 100%
Nearly half way there.
Stay tuned for the Man Cave Special!

Lineage Trade and Super Collector

About a week ago I made a small trade that helped my on going cause for a Lineage Master set and just yesterday met someone who blows my ambitions away.

A co worker of mine had picked up some Lineage cards as well and set me up with a Ryan Howard Cloth Sticker I needed in exchange for a Goodwin Champions Kate Middleton Mini "Lady Luck" parallel.


For that...
My buddy likes to hit the casinos from time to time so hopefully that Lady Luck will bring him... well... some luck!
Yesterday I got a message from a guy out in KC who not only is on the same quest as me, but is also attempting to get all the Canary Versions, all Autographs, and well... every single variation or version of Lineage cards possible. 
And I thought I was passionate!
In short this guy has a wealth of cards that I need for my collection and rest assured I'll be in contact with him to try and pull off some block buster trades!  Only problem is I'm not sure I have enough in my personal stock to really make a splash.  We'll see!
Till next time.

Fat Heads and Photo Bombs

I know... It's been too damn long since we last interacted.  Life is busy as ever and these are dark times for baseball fans.

Well... not all baseball fans.  The AL East Blue Jays have been kicking ass this off season landing Reyes, Johnson, and Buehrle from Miami and then signing Melky Cabrera all in the same damn week.

Meanwhile the biggest name the Orioles seem to be connected to is friggin Jonny Gomes.  That's just what Baltimore needs... A 32 year old DH who had a whopping 47 RBIs last year.  GRRREEEAAAT. 

So to brighten your off season here is some fun stuff to keep you entertained.  As stated in previous posts I recently got a Matt Wieters Fathead for my anniversary and put it up in the Man Cave. 

Hey Woog... What's a Fathead!?!


Fatheads are life sized vinyl cut outs of your favorite star athletes that can be hung on most walls and surfaces over and over again!

Not only do you get the life sized cut out, but a bunch of other perks as well.  Check it out!

This thing was huge and I had to let it lay out over night to stretch out.  I decided to hang all of the smaller stuff first and take Matt off last.  So I got busy tagging my cave with Orioles Schwag.  Totally reminded me of the Adam Jones/Robert Andino put a bird on it video!
From a distance it actually looks like a real bat propped up in the corner.  The rest is pretty much Orioles Logos... So...

Put a bird on it.

Put a bird on it.

Put a bird on it.

Put 3 Birds on it.

1 Bird

2 Bird

3 Bird... Ah ah ah.
I hung a few more... but you get the point.  I put a bird on it.
Then it was time to tackle Matty.  After cleaning the wall and dropping the pennants I had hanging on the wall, we carefully removed Wieters from the poster.  (NOTE: Be careful about not tearing your fathead if you end up buying one)
Luckily Matt wasn't too big for the wall, but it was close!

Great shot of me working the air bubbles from his crotch.

Pretty sure those air bubbles are gone Woog....

Alas, Matt in all his glory! Naturally once it was hung I decided it needed to move slightly to the right...

Finally, a drinking buddy! 
This was a great item for the Cave and really completed the set up.  Stay tuned for the full unveil! 
However, just before we end this post I wanted to share with everyone...
I had gone to Camden Yards and had the wifey take some photos of me with some of the statues that the Orioles put up through out the summer.  I just recently looked thru them and found that I had been photo bombed in one of the shots.  It was hilarious!  Check it out.
This was of me and Eddie Murray. Can you see them???  How bout a close up?
Classic photo bomb.  Hats off to those dudes.
Hope you enjoyed.  Till next time...
Thanks for reading.

New Addition

Just a quickee today... I've got bigger things to post about but haven't had the time to perfect the Cave.  However it is still next on the agenda.  (I'll do fathead in the same post).

Picked this up in the bargin bin for an astounding $1.99.  I love finding great deals!

Has a BV of $20!  Not bad at all...
