So, I have not been posting at my usual rate. It being summertime, I suppose I've been busy doing other things. Such as... How about the
Speaking of photos, I have not had much luck finding relevant photos of the 2017 Chicago Pride Parade, but I will write a post to share the few that I did come up with.
Last week I picked up a baseball card repack at Walgreens. Mickey Mantle was in the window, so I had to bring him home with me. I pulled a few keepers from that box, and I've already traded a few of the cards, so I got my $5 worth out of it! Below are what I consider to be the more interesting cards of the bunch. Enjoy!
Melky! Melky makes me smile and I love watching him play. This is only my 2nd White Sox card of him, so I was happy to find it in the repack.
A new to me Jacoby Ellsbury? I'll take it! This ups his count to three.
Two new to my collection Cubs cards, and that's always a good thing.

CM vs. MC
Mother's Cookies, a first for me. Love me some pizzeria cards, and I must stay focused on that or I'll end up with a collection that's way out of hand (You know what I'm talking about. Yeah, YOU.), so the Astros cookie card
is also for trade has been claimed.
And the card that sold the box, my first Mantle card. Not shabby at all!
Okay, now that I've shown all the baseball cards I wanted to share from the repack, I have to deal with Cookie Monster. I can't post that CM photo without giving props to my favorite Sesame Street character.
Ladies and gentlemen, please put your hands together for the fabulous...
Have a great day everyone!
