Camaro in Person

Went and saw the Hit King Camaro in person over the weekend and entered for the chance to win I didn't :<.  But if you like cars it is a beauty they said for another $20,000 in options can make it a speed demon.  Really how could you drive a car like this normally I'd need a car cover with me and have to park mile away in parking lots.  Hoping they sell just the accessories for the car or wait until 1 unlucky person totals one and parts out the car.

Here it is live.

Ever wonder how close I'm too completeness?  I did my checklist of Rose items with his likeness on them which I don't include the game cards or non pictured items in my count stands at 2,246 this also excludes the publications (1,387).  Of that count I'm only missing 165 scans or I have almost 93%.  Of the 165 missing items a lot of them are rated on my rarity scale of 1-5 most fall in the 1 to 2 range.  And of those there are a lot of store display pieces missing I'd really like to get those pictures so if you have anything even 1 scan of the rare odd ball item I'd love to see it.  Who doesn't want to see Pete holding a doughnut for the WaWa store?

Finest Graded Rookie

If you haven't been over to REA auction you should they have some of the rarest cards up for auction and this stunning 63 Topps Rookie looks like it just came off the line hard to believe that was in a pack.  I'm not a big graded card guy I like my cards to show a little love but this card is amazing in color and centering.  Only at $11,000 with 16 days to go so plenty of time to sell off some other cards and get some funds together to make a run at it.

Happy Birthday Pete

Pete's 69 today how time flies.  Happy Birthday to you and many more to come.  I noticed something yesterday that I can guarantee will never happen in baseball history again I'm willing to bet my 1963 Rookie card on it.  No player will ever hit his 4,000th hit on the exact date as his #1 hit that all happened yesterday the 13th.  A pretty safe bet as the 4,000 hit club seems pretty safe at 2 members for the foreseeable future.  Only player I could see getting close would have been Ichiro if he played his entire career in the US.1,278 japan hits + as of 12th 2,038 mlb hits = 3,316 hits at age 37 impressive a tad ahead of Roses pace.

Enjoy the day and send Pete a birthday greeting.

Hit #1 4/13/1963

I forgot to mention on the 8th was Pete's first at bat a walk off Earl Francis he then went 0-11 until the 13th where he promptly got hit #1 a triple off Bob Friend and the race was on to 4,256.  Below is my autograph of all the pitchers (un)lucky to have given up a significant milestone in the race to 4,256.
