Topps Lineage Online Redemption

A pleasant surprise in the mail today – I filled out an online redemption for a Lou Brissie autograph earlier in the year when I pulled the redemption card from a box of Topps Lineage and today it arrived. Here it is alongside the redemption card (all be it on the squiff due to my inability to use a scanner):

As I’m not that bothered about autos and its not a Cardinal it will be available for trade…..

Starting a blog….

Ok so this is my attempt to start a baseball card (and other collections) blog. How much I actually “blog” remains to be seen as the main thought process behind starting this up is to have somewhere online that I can share my want lists and trade bait to hopefully prompt trades.

If you haven’t already guessed my name is Jeff and I collect baseball cards 🙂 I live in the UK and I’m mainly a set collector but as a Cardinals fan I also collect Cardinals cards and have the makings of a Yadier Molina player collection. Aside from baseball cards I also collect lego minifigures, various Panini sticker collections (mainly major football championships), US state and national park quarters.

How regularly I make updates/ post blogs is going to be very dependent on work and family (2 and a half year old daughter and a 1 month old son =  not a lot of spare time….or indeed sleep!) but getting the blog up and running is something I’ve been meaning to do for a while so here it is. If no one else sees it other than me then at the very least I can record trades and hopefully keep my lists up to date.
