Pull the Trigger 20.5 ($30)

2001 Pacific Anthony Thomas War Room Insert


I can remember back when Thomas was in college at Michigan, announcers would refer to him as the "A-Train" ad nauseum. It really riled up my uncle Bob (who passed away a few months ago at age 90), a lifelong Badger fan. Uncle Bob's family always hosted a New Year's Day party, and this one year in particular, it was either Musburger or Keith Jackson who was laying it on pretty thick during the game. Uncle Bob got pretty perturbed by this and declared, "That's how he gets his jollies saying that!" One of the great memories I have of a great man.

Come get your jollies by pulling the trigger on the A-Train, or let it ride and see what else gets added.

Completion!: 2003 Topps Gallery Hall of Fame

I just typed out a whole blog post about this set, tried to publish it, and then everything but the photos got erased. I don't feel like rewriting the whole thing, so you're getting the short version.

Last cards acquired: Phil Niekro picture variation, Ernie Banks, Harmon Killebrew, Ed Mathews Artist Proof parallels.


Box top used as binder cover. Helluva thing, ain't it?


Completed page. Looks damn good, wouldn't you say?


Sorry so surly. We were watching neighbor kids tonight, and my littlest one got diarrhea on the floor. Should I take a run at the coin cards from this set one day? Other than those, I'm out.

Pull the Trigger 20.3 ($30)

1996 Fleer Emotion-XL Matt Williams D-Fense Insert

I have bought two boxes of this product, and the gods were pretty good to me, allowing me to hit nine of the ten D-Fense inserts. Williams is my only double. Take him home with you.

Pull the Trigger 20.1 ($30)

Had an unexpected day off due to snow, so I thought I'd start a new pile. Thirty bucks takes it. This is about a $12-15 card, so we're close to halfway there already.

It's been a year or so, but you guys know the drill. Pull the trigger on this lot at any time you are ready to pay $30 for it. Cards added periodically, state your intent to buy in the comments.
