I have been on vacation for the past nine days. While I was gone, a few bubble mailers made it to my porch.
First, the 2006 UD Artifacts Auto-Facts card of Marcus Giles. This is the first one of these that I have seen since I started building this set last Fall.
Next, a couple of PSA graded cards. 1968 Topps Al Kaline graded 8, and a 1981 Sweet Lou graded Gem 10.
While away, the sewingmachinegal and I took in a game at Chase Field. The Cincinnati Reds behind a great game from Bronson Arroyo beat the home D-Backs. The weather was a bit cool, so the roof was closed.
I found time to hit a sports card shop in Phoenix. The Batter's Box is the oldest in town. The guys working there were very helpful. I knocked off four of the big boys from my 79 want list.
