$10 Scumbucket Grab Bag 4.16

1959 Topps #246 J.W. Porter
J.W. Porter sounds like a men's clothing store that had been a constant presence in your city before finally going belly up circa 1983.  They still have hand-painted signs on a couple of older brick buildings in the downtown area that no one has thought to paint over in the years since.  Your dad got all of his pants there.

If you want this link to the past, get ten dollars ready.  I wrote a 59 in the corner so you wouldn't forget what year this card is from.

Trade Me Anything XIII: #5

I've been sitting on this one for a long time.  The package from Zpop arrived weeks ago, and as each weekend approached, I told myself that I'd get to posting it.  However, each weekend came and went without it happening.  Today's the day to see what was sent.

#FB-2 Cal Ripken, Jr. The Family Business

#84-47 Victor Robles 1984 35th Anniversary

 The Ultimate Baseball Road Trip
With all of my children out of diapers, a summer baseball road trip is looking more and more likely.  This could come in very handy.

2004 Upper Deck SPx Ben Sheets AUTO/Jersey (941/999)
This guy was born too early to be fully appreciated.  Put him on the 2018 or 2019 team and the Brewers are a lot closer to winning the World Series.

2005 Upper Deck Trilo3y Rickie Weeks Jersey (02/75)
That is a tiny swatch!

2005 Playoff Absolute Memorabilia Richie Sexson Tools of the Trade Jersey/Pants (062/150)

All great stuff, love the Sheets auto.  I think it's the first of his I have.  Thanks, Zpop!
