Hey everyone,

Sorry I haven't posted in a bit. Work has kept me busy and tired. I did get a few things in the mail from TTM, Box Breaks and Ebay. I'll get them posted over the weekend.

I decided to start an ambitous project. I want to get the 2009 Yankees World Series Team on 2009 World Series baseballs. I know this will take me a long while and plus, I know it will be very expensive, but I am willing to try. Players like Jeter, Arod, Rivera and Matsui are some of the few players I may have to pay Steiner Prices for, but I'll do it, hence the length of time it will take me to complete this project. Plus, the players aren't readily avalable to the public like the Philies were last year as I have been following a few blogs and seen a few 2008 Phillies WS auto ball collections. I'll of course leave posts and pics of what I get.

I'll talk to guys later. I'm hoping the rumors I hear about AI coming to the Knicks aren't true. Please no.

Hey everyone,

Sorry I haven't posted a blog recently. Been a bit busy with work and plus, I haven't had any returns TTM-wise. I did get a Broduer dual jersey card off ebay that arrived recently, so I will get a pic of it up tonight.

Just a quick request, if anyone reads my blogs, please post a quick comment so I know someone is reading these, lol. Other than posting pics of my wins or sucesses, my main goal here is making new friends.

Let's Go Knicks/Devils!

Sunday, November 8, 2009


Been a quiet weekend so far. Watched the Knicks lose and Devils win today. I get the feeling I'll be typing his same sentence for much of the winter.

Wasn't able to attend the Yankees parade Friday as I wasn't able to get the day off from work.I did get to see some of it on TV and it looked like a mad house on the streets, so I guess I'm kinda glad I didn't go. Not much a fan of crowds.
Did get 2 TTM's Friday. Two more former Knicks:

Harry Gallatin

Richie Guerin

11/5/2009-On Top Of The World Ma!!!

I am sooooo loking forward to the parade tomorrow. I have never been to a Yankees championship parade and I have been a die hard fan since 1976. Just not a fan of crowds so I stay away. I think I'm going to this one however. If I do, I will post pics here tomorrow night.
Haven't been to the post office yet, so I have nothing to report TTM or ebay-wise. If I get anything, I'll come back and post.
Congrats to the New York Yankees!!!

Recent adds

Well, here I am as I promised earlier. Got the game on, Yankees up 2-0 on a Matsui bomb in the 2nd. We are here at the top of the third and Ruiz just tripled off Pettitte. Hopefully, he can get out of it.
Ok, here are my recent adds. First the McGuire auto from earlier todayMy apologies, I don't have a scanner and use a digital camera.

Next, recent adds from ebay, from my Team Collectors group or group breaks

First Knicks Autos

09-10 Upper Deck Eddy Curry

08-09 Chronology Dick Barnett. I just need a Bradley and DeBusshere and I'll have autos from the starting 5 of the 68-69 World Championship team.

Next a Dustin Keller GU

Next, Some Devils SP Authentic Patrick Elias Dual GU

SP Authentic Brian Gionta auto
Now some Yankees PC

Topps Gallery Alphonso Soriano GU Bat

Leaf Certified Hideki Matsui GU Jersey card. Btw, he has driven in 4 runs tonight.

This is unique. A Topps Gallery Alfonso Soriano Dominican Coin Card. It's a diffrent addition to the Yankees collection, but I like it.2009 Topps Chrome Mark Melancon auto

2009 Topps Chrome Ramiero Pena auto

2008 Bowman's Best Melky Cabrera auto

Priemer Roger Clemens auto

Some PC Adds

David Lee

Bowman 48 auto

09-10 Upper Deck auto

09-10 Topps Game Used Jersey

Mark Teixeira

2005 Donruss GU Bat

I also added a bunch of base and inserts of Teixeira and Martin Brodeur. If I added pics of those, I wouldn't be able to watch the rest of the game, lol. Top 5, Yankees up 4-1. I am always looking to trade, but I only trade if your on or and if you have good feedback. Been burned twice and I am not looking to get burned a third time.

Anyway, thanks for checking out the adds and Lets Go Yankees!


Tough Town, eh?

Game 6 is tonight and NYC is electric. Pettitte vs Pedro looks like it's going to be a good one. I'm sure the crowd at Yankee Stadium will be fired up, even more so with the chance of not only winning a 27th world championship, but beating the hated Pedro in the process. To me, the two keys to winning this game will be Teixeira finally hitting and getting to that Philly bullpen. I would match up the Yankees pen against theirs any day of the week, and twice on sunday. Their pen has been shaky this whole series and I don't think it will right it self this series. I said Yankees in 6 at the beginning and I hope the Yankees can make me look like a genius :D

My ttm drought ended today with former Knick Dick Mcguire returning the 2 custom cards I sent him last week. I'll post pics tonight and of my recent adds to my PC's. I had an idea for hockey customs and will work on them while watching the game tonight.

Enjoy the game and Let's Go Yankees!

One Win Away! Great win last night. Arod came through in the clutch, heads up baserunning by Johnny Damon and Mo to close it out= a win closer to world series championship #27. Hopefully, AJ can close it out for us tonight although if Cliff Lee is on again, it will be tough. I wouldn't mind seeing the Yankees win at home, but would rather not let Philly even sniff a chance to get back into the series. Pettitte is not great on three days rest and Pedro might be looking for a chance at revenge. Just finish them off tonight!
Over the weekend I recieved my Brian Gionta SP Authentics auto via ebay for the Devils auto PC. I gotta find time to post pics of my adds. After the world series, I should be able to have the time to.
Friday night, I went to try to get Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig to sign a Wolverine poster and Quantum of Solice Poster respectively. I was told by the guy in front (not sure if he's security or an usher) that they won't sign. I decided to take the chance and low and behold he was right. Jackman was right in front of me as he shook hands with some of the crowd and actually looked at the poster, but walked away. Very disapointing. Craig just smiled, waved and walked away. Darn. Oh well, Craig signs TTM in care of the theather, so I'll send the poster tomorrow. Jackman, I'll take the chance as well. My buddy talked me into walking over to where Bye Bye Birdie is playing for a chance at Gina Gershon. I went so the evening wasn't a total waste. Lo and behold, she never came out. I called it a night at 11pm. When I got home, my friend texted me and told me she had left an hour prior to us getting there. I guess I'll mail the 8x10 of Gershon as well.
Let's Go Yankees!
