Colby Rasmus doing his thing!

I'm sorry, I seen this pic and I could not help myself. Apparently Colby Rasmus did not get far enough into the Ivory at Fenway to do his business so he just went ahead and let loose right there on the Field! Now that my freinds is dedication! a promising young man who doesn't care about anything by making sure he stays in the outfield even if he can't hold it any longer. BTW my 5 year old daughter seen this pic and said "Daddy it looks like he's going poop!" so I'm not the only one that thought this right off the bat! And I have the finest redemption #5 of him then seen this pic and got way off topic! Now did he catch that ball while doing this ? that's the real ? Grant

The best Fathers day gift so far Mariners game

Thought I would share my great Fathers day gift my Fiance got me. Two Tickets to the Mariners home game VS. The DBacks Is was an Awesome game the Mariners won 7-3 and it had been exactly 20 Years since I've been at a Mariners game ( mostly because I lived in Vegas for 12 years ) so when I was 13 I went to a Game VS. the Twins at the King dome which is when I first seen Junior and of course he became my favorite player along with Kirby Puckett who I really liked as well . Although he didn't play I was able to have a brief hello with him and get some good pics but on a different camera, So I'll be posting more. It was cool to think about being there 20 years later and the chances that Griffey would be back in Seattle! I have a great Women who doesn't know anything about baseball and really can't understand in her words why I collect Kids stuff ( baseball cards) But she went and this was her first game and she was louder and more excited then I was! All in all it was a great time and Thought I'd share with all of you. Thanks for checking it out. On a different topic it was really sad to see how they have let Key Arena go and the Main streets around the stadium go for those of you that know this was intentionally done after the new owner cought the Sonics he had no intention on keeping them in Seattle dumped every good player to ensure that the Thunder would have a huge budget for players. Nothing against Oklahoma City but they will never be a great team or even compare to what Seattle would have brought to the NBA given a chance by getting good players putting a little money into the stadium and the area around it. Sadly I predict the Thunder will fail miserably never get into the playoffs or last in the NBA I won't get into the details but it was an outrage to the Sonics fans and horrible for City in General and honestly one of the most Shady things Iv'e seen in sports.

$ 3 K hand made Ichiro card, lets just start making our own cards!

I know I'm very low on the totum pole in the blogging world but I couldn't help but to get some feeback on this. As a Mariners fan a ran into this on Ebay

ONE OF A KINDICHIRO SUZUKI PATCH AUTOLegendary MilestonesHonoring his all-time MLB single season hit record of 262 hits in 2004.See back of card for his other great accomplishments # 1 / 1This is a custom made card from one of the famous members on It is made of card stock and same dimensions as a standard baseball card and 180pt.Card comes with PSA/DNA and Mill Creek holo and original card used to make it.Email for questions BUT IT NOW $3.,000 ?
I may get this wrong but this is a sweet spot Auto ball ? ( or is it cut from the Baseball that's pictured. , a topps sterling Patch Not sure what's going on with that box that shoved into the card with the PSA/DNA Auth. ( how is this certified at all? ) Of course it's a 1/1 it's hand made right? I applaud the actually effort this took But 3 Grand? I'm sure everyone's gonna nail me on this but couldn't help but to ask why in gods name are you asking 3k for this card? A Ichiro signed ball and a Sterling 3 patch that you put together. Once again great work on the card I mean I really like it and would buy it since I'm a huge lifetime fan of the Mariners but at that price? If you sell that for 3K I'm in the wrong business. Again nothing against freedomcardbaord or whoever made this cool card great idea. But This gives me nightmares of everyone cutting up signed baseballs and really nice cards to make thier own on sell on ebay at a 1000% mark up ( 2 each his own I guess). it's a great idea just not in my budget or taste. Let me know how that sale goes. Keep in mind I'm new to blogging Ebay ETC.. I quit collecting in the MID 90's and started in 1982. Maybe I'm just old school and out of the loop of what's considered a good card, I just can't help buyt to think what I could get my hands on for 3 Grand. And for the few of you who read my post or iv sent cards to, you know I'm fair and don't get into bashing anyone. This one just floored me, so feel free to bash away if you like. I'd love to hear your thoughts and justification for this! Grant

Beat the odds a great box of 09' SPX my first hot box

Got a box of SPX Yesterday so I'd Thought I'd share. The 1st card was a buyback in place of the box topper? well I opened it and saw Griffey on the back an thought Holy Shi* I got the 89' Auto! well it wasn't the auto. Still it was a very nice Exremly thick Gu's Ball. As I went through the box after pack 5 I'd already went though the Supposed hits but they kept coming. Hope you enjoy the pics. The scan of the Roberts Auto patch doesn't do it much justice It's a great looking card and again exremely thick!. I wasn't impressed with the quality of the Gu's cards some had edge and color issues. The foil cards suprisingly are very well made. Not a bad box at all, not pictured are 4 of the Dimaggio's career highlights #/425 no R/C I'm not sure if this set includes them? Overall I actualy like these cards even thugh I'm not a big fan of Foil cards. My only issue was the quality of the GU'S for the price not a bad product in my opinion. Thanks for reading and give me some feedback! Grant old school pack buster
