I hope everyone is recovering from their post-Super Bowl hangovers from celebrating, killing the pain or just because.
In celebration of Charles Woodson and his Michigan brethren, here's some stuff I got in the mail today:
Trade with Midwest Cardboard:
Todd, a.k.a. Darkship, of Midwest Cardboard was again part of one of my group breaks, the most recent Letterman one. We worked out two trades, one being a three-way deal that included Sam of the Daily Dimwit, but before that we agreed on one of my Aaron Crow letters for a Yonder Alonso and Justin Smoak. While he was going to the trouble of shipping, he threw in this card that he was holding onto for me for a bit:
A couple more Blowout purchases:
Yes, I'm still sinking a good chunk of money into the Blowout forums, but at least not as much at once. Two purchases yielded the following three cards:
Tim Biakabatuka '99 Inscriptions card. Hopefully this is the first of a few cards of the former Michigan QB hero, who'll hopefully find success with David Baas and the 49ers.
I wanted to give a quick mention to BA Benny's group break, which started today. He's posted two videos so far, one of an Opening Day blaster and another with some random packs. Mike does a great job of showing each card and even pronounces names correctly sometimes (but cut him some slack, he's reading them upside-down) and more importantly, I'd say the video quality is excellent. Go watch if you've got a hand in the break or to just enjoy watching someone open packs with a thick New York accent. And stay tuned for what I'm sure will be quite a few more clips of pack breaks considering the scope of the thing.
