gripes for today

Filed under: baseball cards — Tags: — morineko @ 4:38 pm

My post for today was intended to be one on my choice of a new player whose cards I was going to start to collect. I was looking for a player who hadn’t been a prospect for very long, so there would be no hunting down all those prospect and minor league releases, but I was also looking for a player who wasn’t so good as to have hundreds and hundreds of insert card releases but wasn’t bad enough not to have any at all. I had settled on Peter Moylan–there surprisingly aren’t many cards of him at all, and from what I can tell none from 2007!–because I had thought he had a long career of successful setup ahead of him. Sadly, he suffered an elbow injury and was placed on the 15-day DL yesterday, and it looks like it could be serious. In any case, my collection of Moylan cards stands at 1 (the 2008 Upper Deck series 1) but that doesn’t mean I don’t want any more ;)

Speaking of Upper Deck, I finally heard back from them about the shorted blaster pack that I sent in wrappers and UPC codes over a month ago. I’ll scan the letter when I get home as it’s absolutely ridiculous in its assumptions. I wasn’t as ticked off about the missing insert card as much as the pack that was shorted cards in general. (And I just bought one of those Target $1.59 packs of 2005 Fleer and that was also short one card, so it must be an ongoing UD issue.)

They did send me free product, though: a pack of retail 2007 UD series 2 baseball. I guess it’s a good thing I’m still trying to finish that set.

apologies for not posting

I haven’t been posting because I’ve had the flu and a sinus infection, and I haven’t bought cards in a month, and I’m still working on putting that trade package together (no, I haven’t forgotten about it, I’ve been too sick to go through cards.)

Once I get all that out of the way, I’m going to post about a new player collection I’m thinking about starting.
