#3763455 Official Toronto Maple Leafs Thread

Posted Babying on 14 November 2017 - 10:55 PM

The Leafs play Philly on Jan 18th on Lindros retiring night. My buddy is a huge Lindros fan and wants to go.

I am iffy because I am not sure if I want to make the trek. However if I do go, Otto will of course be tagging along with me. The casino is down the street and as you know, I will make a trek over to it. I than thought Otto can't go but he will be able to at midnight. He turns 21 on Jan 19th.

#3763274 My Card Collection

Posted Babying on 10 November 2017 - 09:10 PM

We have day 1 complete at the Expo.

It was a very uneventful day since the turnout was low. I believe that the fight between 2 guys in the industry is going to get nasty and another show is going to start to go against the Sportscard Expo.

Otto got to the Expo latter and the amount of people asking me where he is was non stop. What no one is happy to see me?

The dealer across from us had to get an ambulance. The father fainted and had to go to the hospital. The son (he must be around $25) took over. I went over to see if the Dad was doing okay and he said he is fine but needed some tests to be done at the hospital.

Sales were low for me but I heard others did well. Hopefully the sales pickup tomorrow. I am bring my younger daughter since she loves to be the cashier.

The best part of the Expo was what came up to me from guys looking to sell their cards. I brought alot of rookies (400 cards) and paid $300 for them. It is a nice deal and I am reloaded for a few years. Sold 50 of them for $100 already on Friday.

Another lot came to me and it was only McDavid. Had a good discussion with the seller and he said one dealer offer him $1,500 for the lot. I offer him $2,000 and he thought about it but turn it down. It was a good offer but he did not bite.

One guy from Detroit came by and he had some very nice stuff. We settle on this 2 card lot to me for $375:

https://www.ebay.com...=p2047675.l2557

and

https://www.ebay.com...=p2047675.l2557

One funny thing that happen, my partner for the booth brought this card for $85:

https://www.ebay.com...=p2047675.l2557

and in 2 seconds sold it for $120 to a buyer standing next to him.

Than this guy came over with alot of cards. He kept complaining about how he can't sell his card for $12,000 and it was a waste of time for him to come to the Expo. He dumped a bunch of cards on my showcase and I only wanted to buy his 3 McDavid rookies:

https://www.ebay.com...=p2047675.l2557

He wanted $900 for the lot and I offered him $750. He than got angry at me and left in a huff. I had no issue with giving him $900 but when someone is rude, you know where you can go.

One of the last guys who came by was this older Chinese guy. I gave him a nickname of Fu Man Chu. Anyways he asked us if we were buying and he said would we be interested in this. He shows us 2:

https://www.ebay.com...=p2047675.l2557

I was like I don't see too many since people are hoarding them now. My partner than scares him off since he wanted an offer from us so he said $200 each. He looked at us and gave us a stunned look. He than walked off and will not talk to us. He than came back 3 mins latter and flashed $450. We than said you didn't get $450 for both Crosbys? He said no, only 1 and flashed the other one. I said will you take $400 and he said no, he wants $450. I looked at it and the corner was slightly dinged but I gave it to him. Another dealer came by and offer me $650 for it and I said no. I want $850.

In the past I use to complain that no one asks me if I want to buy anything, not tonight. Love seeing the cards.

Jim Wright is an excellent writer, and pens a lot of essays for his site: Stone Kettle Station.

This article was particularly strong, IMO, and his one line really sticks with me and explains a lot about how he got elected: "Trump is what stupid people think a smart guy sounds like."

Calling up Brandon Montour.

Not sure I have ever called up a farm player in mid season, but he's too good to not be playing on my team.
And while I like my chances for playoffs, I have to try as hard as possible to get that bye in the first round.

I hate how well he did in his first few games though, its gonna cost me on the resign.

Oh, and for anyone wondering, no he isnt "Aho" rule eligible, because he played 27 games last year, 2!!!!! over the limit. So instead of $1.50 for 3yrs, I might have to pay him $2.50/$3.50 next year alone, with increases every year after. Damn Anaheim!

Good job my Sakic to turn it into a 3-way. It's easier to get 2 teams to each overpay by a little than to get 1 team to overpay by a lot.

Just finished Angus Glen North. Otto hit his shot from 165 yards on the 16th. I did not see it and h told me it was good. We looked for his ball and could not find it


Yes it was in the hole. His first eagle.

Most of you know that I am a fiscal conservative. If you didn't, you know now. I didn't vote for Trump and Im pretty sure I wouldn't have voted for Bernie Sanders. Would have looked for a 3rd candidate.

What Trump just said about Obama, Bush and all the other former presidents in regards to calling families of the Fallen military is beyond unforgivable. This man truly is an abominable human being.

He lost me when he said McCain wasn't a hero because he likes people who aren't captured

The man makes me sick
