Earlier this week Tim (aka Spastikmooss) over at The Great Sports Name Hall of Fame held a draft from his trade bait. There were six of us that bought in and I gotta say it was a blast for me, a much better time I would've had watching the Oscars that night. I ended up drawing the 6th and final draft position, which was not really that bad because I still got what I wanted for the most part. And the best part was since it was a snake draft, I got to pick twice back-to-back and spend a lot more time checking the lists for my next picks. The first few rounds of the draft were dominated by relics and autos and a few vintage cards. There weren't any Rockies or anything else that I particularly wanted for myself so I decided to draft for others in the beginning and work out some trades later.
I was undecided on whether to make this a Rockie Trading Post (I didn't really trade for them) or a group break results (nothing was broken aside from Tim's computer) or what, but I think just a simple I got these cards post will work. Let's see what I got for my minimal $10 purchase shipping included (a whole lotta pics).
Things are Funner Here. Hopefully she needs/wants it. My second pick was a 2001 SP Game Bat Milestone Edition Roberto Alomar bat card. It is currently offered to Jack the Baseball Dad from All Tribe Baseball.
e rayhahn rayhahn. I have one card that he wants set aside for him and this one is going to headed to him as well if he still needs it.
Mountains to Climb in 2011. I am at nearly 50% completion with 190/412 total players. Once I hit the 50% mark or so I will put up a want list for the rest some of which I don't think ever had a Rockie card made.
Boy, that was a long post, but well worth it. I definitely think I got my money's worth out of this draft and I hope they catch on with other bloggers. Check out Tim's site here and trade him some cup and cooler cards.
