This past week has been quite eventful! I was asked to write my second article for Sports Collectors Daily. I wrote about how to break down and sell a large collection of cards before your wife kills you.
I was also asked to play a part in a commercial! The commercial was for an entry in Crash the Super Bowl for Doritos. I wrote about it and put it in some "Off Topic" forums, but figured I'd post it in this blog posting as well.
You can check it out here: https://crashthesuperbowl.doritos.com/gallery/-created/4/4184
Needless to say, I'm not going to be quitting my day job anytime soon, lol!
The video guy who created this posted it on the Doritos site, and so I had my family check it out. I decided to view some of the other entries... guess who is in another entry also?
I thought that was really ironic. I mean, what are the odds?
Speaking of Jose, I ended up doing a few customs for my collection. After doing some 1976 customs, I figured I'd try one out of him.
Then, I thought - hey! Why not do one of a picture my wife took of him when we were at his house? Here is the back side of it ... so much more interesting than boring old stats :)
A few days ago, I saw a video of someone's collection, and as he was flipping through his cards, he showed a dual patch 2007 Ultra Dual Materials. I thought that it looked awesome, so I figured I'd cook up one of my own using this jersey:
So, here it is:
While I was making it, I kept thinking about how Ultra had Gold and Platinum Medallion parallels. I figured I'd cook up a new one myself. How about an Atomic Medallion?
If only 2007 Ultra made it for real, but since it is for my personal collection, I guess this will more than suffice :)
As for premium pieces, I was able to put together a few nice pieces of some Hall of Famers, like Bert Blyleven, Dave Winfield and Paul Molitor. Here they are:
I realize this isn't nearly as wordy as what I normally post, but I just figured I'd post some of these pics up before the dinner bell rings. Thanks for reading/looking!
