Autograph Collection: Julio Teheran

Yes, I am too lazy to move the card into a holder without tape on it right now.

If you have any Julio Teheran cards you want to move cheap because you’ve given up on the kid, feel free to send an offer my way. I could give you a box of about a thousand 1982 Fleer cards for a nice stack of Teheran cards. Just email me. Link on the right side.

Another Card Giveaway Coming …

If you don’t follow me on Twitter, you should!!!! Sometime in the next week, I’m going to giveaway an excellent Braves autograph from this year’s Allen & Ginter. I’ll tweet all the details when ready. Follow me! @MadGlavSmoltz

Autograph Collection: Brandon Beachy and Julio Teheran

Tons of commenters over on DOB’s blog and at Talking Chop have decided that Teheran is already a failure. I don’t buy it. The kid is 21. I’d love to see these two at the top of the Braves rotation in two or three years.

Allen & Ginter Giveaway!!!!!

I’ve entered the names of the commenters and will start the randomization shortly. I’ll be hitting Randomize three times to determine the winner. I’ll update this post shortly with the screen print announcing the winner. (If it’s you, please email me your address to


And the winner is Nathan!!! Be sure to send me your address Nathan!

Autograph Collection: Brandon Beachy

And my parade of autographs featuring the Braves fallen starting pitcher continues. If Beachy is still around, do the Braves pull the trigger on the Dempster deal?

I’ll Start to Give Some Stuff Away!!!!

UPDATE: CONTEST CLOSED!!!!! I’ll run the commenters names through RANDOM.ORG later today and announce the winner!

I’m so excited about my impending fatherhood, that I’m going to start giving my cards away!!! Now, don’t get too excited. It’s not like I’m going to get rid of my best cards here! Still, these are cards that I don’t want that some of you may want.

Anyway, up for grabs first is a 2012 Allen & Ginter World’s Tallest Buildings Insert Set. It was included with the master set I bought, and I don’t want it. 

I’ll also throw in a Historical Turning Points insert set, because I just don’t want it!!!!

How do you win? Leave a comment by 8:00am Saturday morning. (That’s July 28!) I’ll draw sometime Saturday and get the cads mailed out next week. Feel free to mention it on your blog, but this is a small contest, so I’m just going to allow one entry per person.

Hey, it isn’t the greatest contest, but it isn’t the worse! Better stuff to come!
