Greetings fellow Baseball Card and Blog enthusiasts! I hope June has been treating you well so far.
As you all recall from my last post I recently got my biggest Lost Card find yet in the form of the 2000 Fleer Traditions Update Mickey Mantle Pieces of Mantle relic card. It only took two days to arrive and the card was finally in hand. It came well shipped and included some Orioles base cards from that set as well. I'm ecstatic to have it back in the collection. Here are the base cards I was hooked up with!
Tha's right... what do you know about Albert Belle in an Orioles uniform?!? Nothing! The man got hurt after two seasons and stayed on the payroll for 3 more!
and the main attraction...
WELCOME HOME MANTLE!
This card was one of the best pull moments I've ever had. A total odds beater. I grab one box on a shelf out of 5 with a 1 in 80 chance of pulling this card. Opening that box and seeing that solid silver line among the sea of dark grey cardboard is a thrill i'll never forget.
Now I've only got 2 Lost Cards left. Help a brotha out (especially with the Juan Marichal!)

Now I know what you're thinking...
What the crap are you talking about "Mojo Risin'"?
Let's just say if I was in Vegas and was playing cards I'd be on a hot streak.
But I'm not...
I'm in Baltimore and I'm not playing cards...
Just opening them!
Since my little girl was born I've been on a hiatus from buying new packs and boxes. It's been tough, but she's worth it! Plus it gave me more time to focus on my collections and Lost Cards.
Anyways, I'd recently spend $30 total in the last month or so on a few hobby packs and rack packs from Target/Wal Mart.
All I can say is I'm on a hot streak and have pulled a number of Relics and Autos. I think all together I picked up 10 packs and hit on half of them!
Check out my newest additions. All for trade!
