I am so excited baseball is back with the start of Spring Training a few days back. New baseball cards are out for 2017, I am prepping for my fantasy baseball draft that takes place in a week and I am contemplating purchasing the MLB TV package so I can watch all the Giants games this year.
Speaking of Giants games, they are coming to KC this year in April for a mid-week 2 game series. I have a buddy from CA coming into town with his son and I am taking my boys to both games. Single game tickets go on sale on the 24th and I hope to be online right as they go on sale to score some good tickets.
I am pretty optimistic about the Giants this season. The bullpen was their Achilles Heel last year and I believe Mark Melancon will answer the bell as the closer. I have to admit I am a little worried about bullpen depth and the LF situation but overall I think a playoff berth is in the cards this year.
Every so often I check in over at Sports Card Forum to see if I can pick up some Giants cards. I typically only check out the Sale threads as trades are done by BV and it is just too complex at times to get a deal hammered out. I made two purchases in the last few days and both showed up in last night's mail. Thought it would be fun to show them off together.
The first package was a 2-card package, both very nice cards:
The next seller had a long list of autos and serial numbered cards. For convenience, he had them sorted by team which was great! I went through the Giants selections and pick out these that I needed:
Lots of fun to bring in some new Giants cards and I am glad to have SCF as a resource. I have considered trying to get more active in trading on the site again but right now I don't have enough time to post as much as I would like on this blog. Maybe some day.
