Pull the Trigger 11.17 ($25)

My lots rarely sell until something circle-shaped is added to the pile, so here's the requisite circle-y thing.

1992 Score Hardee's/Coca-Cola Major League Line-Up Discs Chuck Knoblauch


My wife claims that when you went to Twins games in the early 1990s, you might have been unfortunate enough to have sat in the same section of Chuck Knoblauch's sisters. Whenever he came up to bat, they would loudly and obnoxiously cheer, "Come on, CHUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!!!"

If you'd like to relive that memory, in circle form, pull the trigger on all this stuff for $25.

CC: The Proof is in the Gallons and Gallons and Gallons and Gallons of Pudding

Just when you think you're done, something new you didn't even know about pops up.

2008 Topps Stadium Club No Name/Foil Production Proof (1/1?)


This thing was cut from a proof sheet someone snuck out the back door at Topps that was never supposed to see the light of day. Picture the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark, only cardboardier. I envision a Neil Hamburger-looking flunky trying to hide the sheet in an empty box of copy paper that's otherwise filled with porno mags, firecrackers, illegal prescription drugs, and other assorted illicit items intended to mask the theft of company property.

And damn glad I am about the possible unscrupulous means that shepherded this card into my hands.

Pull the Trigger 11.16 ($25)

Alrighty, time to move this lot off the lot.

Lot of 3 1983 Reprints of 1952 Topps Dodgers


The '83 reprint set has some remarkable staying power. If you want the whole set, you're going to have to be lucky enough to spy one for sale under $100. If you just want a few Dodgers, however, this is the time to pull the trigger. Twenty-five dollars for everything here.
