Burke Kenny Octo-fecta Update & New additions

Some cards arrived in the mail yesterday, and the Burke Kenny collection is growing.

First up we have mini no number back. I really like that Topps decided to hand number these this year. For some reason hand numbered cards always seem a little more special.

I also managed to score his autograph this week as well.

So that's 3 cards down (base, NNO, auto), which leaves 5 to go in my quest for the octo-fecta. Based on what should be coming in the mail shortly, I may only be 1 card shy by next week. I know the hardest card to get will be his beard relic. I refuse to spend money on a card so disgusting, especially since I know how gross beard hairs are. This card will have to come my way via trade, and I may have to wait it out for a while.

I realized there haven't been many Markakis cards featured here for a while, and I wanted to share a new one that also arrived in the mail this week. It's another Ginter card, so I apologize in advance to all those who are tired of this set already.

There should be more stuff arriving in the next few days, so as always, there will be more cards to share. I'm even going to feature a Yankee card (GASP!) in the next day or 2. Please don't hate me.


  1. Damn, I have the auto on it's way to me right now. I was going to turn it right around and send it on it's way to Baltimore.

    I won it in an intense (especially for a dentist) game of mumblety peg with a drunken Irish sailor who looked a bit like Mel Gibson's side-kick in Braveheart.

    Man, you can acguire wanted cards faster than Jeremy Mayfield can light up a meth pipe.

    Do you still want it?

  2. wow! these are great! please remind me of the day you will be posting your yankee card so I can avoid your blog!

    Your package is in the mail chock full o Ginter!

  3. Great NASCAR reference, Motherscrather.

    Nice job on the Kennys, Beardy.
