Self Ebay Plug

Some of the cards you may have seen here on my site will be for sale on Ebay seller id: hertz27. Some of you may have even done business with me in the past and I was also recognized as the guy who always charged $1.65 or less for shipping ($1.65 combined no matter how many cards you bought). I've always gone out of my way for the customer and my feedback details says it all (100%). I've done many international sales and I've only ever had one problem and the guy ripped me off big time even after I provided proof that he signed for the item and that the item was delivered. Seems like there's always a bad apple in a bunch! However I still do international sales for the most part. Oh I'll have more than just sports cards for sale as I'm looking to do some spring cleaning as well. Some items you may see are drum parts, cymbals, comics, ex-wife, computer games, and many more different types of things.

Times are tough and the economy is tough and my wallet is getting tighter and when you have kids you have to find ways to make sure all the ends are covered because we all know how "little things" like to pop/creep up on you. Yes I am plugging myself!

The magical touch....at WAL MART

I took a trip today up to the local WAL MART for some much needed supplies and toilet paper and I figured since I was there I would pay a little visit to the dreaded retail card isle. Let's just say I'm glad that I bought some TP!

I picked up a blaster box of 2010 Topps Chrome football (I'm working on completing the set), a blaster of Playoff Contenders 2010, and a pack of 2011 Topps baseball. Here's what I pulled:


and then I also pulled this little ol' short print variation also:
I was very pleased with the Sam Bradford considering it was numbered 555/555. Lately I have pulled the chrome blue refractor jersey numbered Tim Tebow card along with 3 1/1's, 4 different player jersey numbered cards, and a total of 9 autographs in the last two years from my local Wal Mart. I was surprised at pulling the Kyle Williams autograph because that is a short print as far as I know. The Thurman Munson was sticking to the back of the Hellickson card a little so that was a nice surprise to see as well.

Overall I'm not too impressed with the Playoff Contenders cards. Seems like there's too much white on them and they were hap haphazardly designed . I still prefer to have the autograph on card and not a sticker autograph as seen on the Kyle W. card.

BRING BACK MUTANT LEAGUE FOOTBALL .....since the NFL is failing



Well now......it seems as if the 2011 NFL football season is in jeopardy. However with the season being denied to us fans that is not going to stop EA Sports from releasing Madden 2012 as anticipated. I wonder who will be on the cover this year? Perhaps that is what should be on the cover for Madden 2012:



Actually I think EA should be smart and bring back Mutant League Football with updated rosters and graphics. There's nothing more fun than shredding a quaterbacks to pieces and having the coach chew you out like this:


This game was the bomb! Nothing like having all kinds of crazy plays like "Hail Scary" or "Da Bomb" or the "Bash the Ref" audible and don't forget the "ball wired for death". How about some of the comments the players would make after sacking the QB to pieces or the "who killed who" notice:


One of my personal favorites was this one:



The best part was you didn't have to worry about cash bonuses, selling tickets, setting up vendors, or some whiny millionaire BIOTCH complaining about his contract. All you had to do was sit down, load up the game, pick a team and begin eating QB's for breakfast. The only worry you had was making sure you had enough players left on your team so you didn't have to forfeit the game!

I just wish they would have done a Mutant League Baseball in addition to the Mutant League Football and Mutant League Hockey. The hockey version of this game was just as good as the Mutant League Football game and it provided you with all the gore that you needed.

CONTEST TIME........soon!!!

I think it's time to run another contest here at "Enough Already". Perhaps a SPRING contest is in order because I am officially done with winter (so what if it snows again). I'm ready to get out on the fields and play some ball! I'm ready to make kids cry by calling them out/safe. I'm ready to PARTY! I'm ready to watch some millionaires strike out like crazy (cough cough Ryan Howard). However, the question that I have burning in the back of my mind is, "what shall I giveaway this time here on Enough Already?" Could it be tickets to a ball game perhaps? An autographed ball? An autographed bat? A proctology exam with aliens? An autographed card? A new Yugo? Dinner date with a cougar (guess what's for dinner!)? A complete set? Guess I'll have to mull it over for a bit perhaps. I'm full of surprises as some of you have found out already!

I'm about to hit 16,000 views which I never expected to have happen and I am thankful to all of you for taking time out of your schedule just to see what's happening here. Much love, appreciation, and thanks to you all!

The NFL is shutting down?

Just released that the talks between the NFL and the Player's union have failed to come to an agreement. The NFL is looking at it's first work stoppage in a while. Heard via CNN and Foxnews.

Update:

I cannot support the players on this one.

Ravishing Relics

Let the drooling begin!

Chicken Scratch: 1/1 Edition

I pulled this little ol' thing out of a box of 2010 Topps Supreme a few weeks ago on here. I was very surprised when I did see both auto's and I laughed when I saw that it was a 1/1 edition. Let us take a look at the names that are on the card:


Jermaine Gresham
1/1
Rob Gronkowski

In Jermaine's signature it's very easy to make out the "J" but as for the rest of the name it looks like a big "S" followed by a small "w".

In Rob's signature you can almost make out his full name. You can see how he makes the "K's" stand out in his last name. Good signature flow as well-very fluid! Still his last name looks a little garbled.

For these efforts I give it 3 sharpies!
