.....But I'm not dead yet!

So it's been a while since I've put anything here. Just wanted to let you know I am still alive. Went on a family vacation and when I got back my computer had died...FRAK! So I don't have a whole lot of access to any new pictures or scans. So time to show off an old favorite or two and leave it at that.

Here is one of my favorite female wrestlers that is being horribly misused in the WWE currently. Gail Kim is one of the most athletic if not the most athletic females and good old Vinnie Mac has her doing jobs nite after nite. Gail has been in several of the Benchwarmer sets and this is one of my favorite cards of hers.

And secondly I'll show off an Ultimate Collection Signatures numbered to 10 I picked up last year. Living in Iowa we don't have any pro teams to call our own so we adopt from the nearby states. For basketball I have followed the Chicago Bulls the closest since the Jordan years. This meant I was thrilled when in 1989 the Bulls drafted the point guard from the Iowa Hawkeyes B.J. Armstrong in the first round. He went on the be a three time champion and an All-Star once. I remember writing to him and sending several cards I had to try to get them autographed when I was a kid but never got a reply so it's nice that I was able to pick up this low numbered auto cheap.

Hopefully I'll have my computer fixed soon so I can get some more recent stuff posted. I have some new art by Beck Kramer to show off and a couple of purchases from the 'Bay to reveal as well.

  1. I received a response to a mail auto request from B.J. years ago - rubber stamp auto - and it looked nothing like yours. Nice pick up for sure.
