Free Stuff Friday #2

Before I jump into today's offerings, I just wanted to say how pleased I was to see that Brian decided to start up his own series of "Free Stuff" posts. It sounds like he'll be doing them a little more often than me, so be sure to keep an eye out for his giveaway posts, I certainly will be :)

I've sent out all but one of the claims from the inaugural Free Stuff Friday, and am currently working on that one, so since I'm basically caught up, I figured I might as well toss out another batch of free cards -- all baseball this time, and mostly of the food issue variety.

I know I covered it last month, but just in case anyone new wants to participate, everything in this post is free for the taking (no strings attached), the only thing I ask is that you claim cards for your collection, as I'm not looking to help build up anyone else's trade stash. Also, not mentioned last month, Canadian residents are more than welcome to participate, but your claims have to be able to fit inside a PWE, I can't afford to ship everyone else's stuff out if I'm having to pay the ridiculous prices that it costs to ship bubble mailers across the border -- I don't know what happened, but it didn't used to be so expensive to ship to Canada?

I think that covers just about everything, so let's get to the free stuff!

Save for the '81 Guidry, all of these Kellogg's have problems. Update: The Kellogg's have all been claimed.

 Misc. food stuffs. Update: Kaline, Spahn, Davis, and 1 Williams have been claimed.

 Denny's holograms. Update: All have been claimed.

 More Denny's holograms, plus a fun "how to view" card. Update: All have been claimed.

 I think that all of these came from repacks. Update:Yogi and Brooks have been claimed.

 Sausage cards? Update: Biggio, Brett, and Puckett have been claimed.

 Despite the name, these are not chewy. Update: Boggs has been claimed.

 I wonder what "Topps cereal" tasted like? Update: Dave, Jim, Pedro, and Reggie have been claimed.

1962 Post with all kinds of problems. Update: Eddie has been claimed.

Well loved buybacks. Update: The buybacks have been claimed.

Some vintage non-food stuffs. These all have corner/edge issues. Update: All have been claimed.

A few more big names, Callison and Kaline both have creases, and Robinson's got some non-crease problems. Update: Al and Brooks have been claimed.

So there you have it! If there's any interest, feel free to start claiming away.


Thanks for taking a moment to look at my page.

  2. Hi Jon - would I be able to claim the Ziploc Brooks Robinson and the "Home Plate Heroes" Alvin Davis, please?

    I have one "Home Plate Heroes" card now -- it is the Joe Carter that 7-year-old me tried to cut off of the Mac-and-Cheese box with dull scissors. I butchered it. It's not pretty. Alvin looks much nicer. :-)

    1. You got 'em!

      Thankfully I didn't cut this one myself, I'm fairly certain that I found it in a dime box a few years ago.

  7. Awesome stuff Jon, you are going all out with these Hall of Famers! I will have to claim Kirby Puckett for sure, but I'd also like a Biggio sausage and Reggie's Cereal card.

    1. Just my way of saying thank you to everyone. And I've got you down for those three cards.

  8. Lots of great stuff here. It's nice to see so many quality cards finding new homes. That '72 Yaz is a beauty!

    1. It started off slow today, but everything seems to be going over pretty good now. It is a good looking card, but I've got one in better shape, so I just thought I'd see if anyone wanted this one.

  9. Hi Jon - May I please claim the following:
    71 Kaline
    72 Aparicio
    72 Yaz base (already have the IA)
    Denny's Daulton
    Thank you! (I would love to have many more, but I figured those would fit in a PWE.)

    1. Dan, for US residents I can do a bubble mailer, or I can get up to 9 cards sent in a secure PWE, so there's no need to be shy if you want anything else.

    2. I was simply trying to save you on postage for sending out stuff for free. :)
      Anyway, if I'm not mistaken, the following have yet to be claimed, and they are not in my collection:
      Nestle Ted Williams
      Ames Dawson
      Quaker Raines & Niekro
      Cereal Series Dawson & Henderson
      Thank you!

      Delete
    3. Looks like those were all still available, so you got 'em!

    4. Awesome! Thank you so much for doing this! Now you have me thinking of ways I can do this (or something similar) over on TCDB.... Thanks again!

  10. Would be very happy to take the George Brett sausage card, the 1972 Yaz (the non-In Action one--I actually have the In Action one already), and/or the 1971 Kaline. This is really quite the selection here--so kind of you!

    1. Brett, it looks like Dan beat you to the Kaline and Yaz by three minutes. You've got the George Brett though, and I'm sure I can find a few more things for you, especially since we haven't had much contact with each other -- speaking of which, can you send me an email with your address: j t e f 8 2 at g mail dot com

  11. Hey Jon,
    I know you just sent me stuff but I would take the rest of the Denny's, the remaining Yaz and the Berra Ziplock if that's possible. If not and someone else has them thats all good too!

  12. I'll gladly take the remaining Red Sox cards - the Nestle Ted Williams, Quaker Wade Boggs, and the Topps Cereal Jim Rice. Thanks!

  13. This is a really cool idea. Might have to borrow this idea. I will put it back when I am done.

    1. That would be great! I don't think anyone's ever going to complain about there being too many Free Stuff posts :)

    1. The Dawson and Henderson were claimed a little bit before you, but I'll add the title card to your package.
