Everything’s Turning Up Roses


After reading Mario’s post about this auction for ten 1985 Pete Rose sets with this autographed card included with each set I went ahead and picked one up.  I won the lot for $250.  At the time there were about seven people interested in going in on the lot.  So far I’ve heard from two of them and am pretty sure I’ll here from another soon.  As of right now there are six sets left for grabs.  The first six to leave a comment with their email address will have first dibs.  What you will get is a 120 card subset produced by Topps in 1985 and one Pete Rose autographed card.  All of this for a whopping $28!!   The cards will ship out shortly after I receive them.  The sooner I can get these gone the happier the wife will be!!!


In other news, I finally got the last two cards I needed for the ’08 masterpieces base set.  It took buying a lot from Ebay of 61 cards but I finally got the last two!  Now that leaves me the short prints.  Here’s my list…..

92, 97, 99, 101, 102, 106, 107, 108, 109, 110, 111, 112, 115,116,117, 120

I have doubles of Gibson and Seaver and a ton from the base set for trade.  If you need any from the set let me know!

I realize I’ve been pretty lazy on here lately but I really haven’t found anything new to write about in a while.  I just killed a $50 gift card for Ebay so when that stuff starts to roll in I know I’ll have some good stuff to write about, including a box of  ’86 Sportflics.  The monthly card show is Sunday too, so hopefully I come out of that smelling like roses!!!

Update: 062Omega got the last spot.  There is another lot up for grabs and if there is enough interest Imight be able to scoop that one up too.  There is already 4 people left out so if six more still want one, I’ll see what I can do.  Thanks goes out to Mario for the commercial and the rest of you for making this quick and painless!!!

    I am interested in one of the sets. I am just getting back into the hobby and this looks great. I’m also a Cubs fan like you (I was in the upper deck at Wrigley when Rose tied the alltime hit record in ’85) Check out my new blog and let me know what you think. http://wrigleywax.blogspot.com/
