Cards owed..... a few of you out there.

I will get those out as soon as my surgery for gallstones is done and I've recovered.

Finally, a glimmer of hope ahead......

I've mentioned on here before about my recent bad health.

Well, after a battery of tests to counter all the crazy symptoms I have had in the last year or so I can finally say with certainty that there is something wrong with me.

It's actually isn't serious so I'll get that out of the way.

It's gallstones. With a bunch of sludge in the mix. Turns out, gallstones can play with about every organ in your body and make you feel really bad.

I'm going to go in for a gallbladder removal some time very soon and hopefully all my chest pains, stabbing liver pain, potassium levels and too many other symptoms to list might just go away after this crappy organ is removed.

Good thing I've been on a large dose of Xanax recently or I don't know how I would have dealt with the constant stress and worries.

Here's to better times!

Listia Loot- 1993 Topps Gold Cubs Team Set

Having somewhat recovered from my computer eating my files and now having a solid start to this Ubuntu install I can say that I will be posting again and here is a nice item I grabbed on Listia recently.

1993 Topps Gold Cubs team set.

I love how these cards compare to the regular ones. What they lack in color they make up for in ornate elegance.

Have a look and decide for yourself:

#3 - Ryne Sandberg

#21 - Luis Salazar

#47 - Bob Scanlan

#74 - Steve Buechele

#101 - Jim Bullinger

#128 - Kal Daniels

#156 - Sammy Sosa

#183 - Greg Maddux

#211 - Doug Dascenzo

#237 - Jose Vizcaino
#265 - Andre Dawson

#292 - Rey Sanchez

#319 - Paul Assenmacher

#346 - Chuck McElroy

#373 - Mike Morgan

#391 - Derrick May

#459 - Derek Wallace

#487 - Jessie Hollins

#533 - Frank Castillo

#563 - Shawn Boskie

#595 - Shawon Dunston

#630 - Mark Grace

#657 - Mike Harkey

#688 - Dwight Smith

#721 - Rick Wilkins

#783 - Heathcliff Slocumb

#812 - Matt Walbeck

Well, it seems some of the cards look great with the gold.

As for the others, it seems to draw attention to some of the awful photos in the set.

But, as a card collector, I love them all none the less.

The set set me back over 1,000 credits, but, since no one knows what value a credit actually has I can say with no regrets that I would rather have this set than some arbitrary online currency. more free stuff on Listia
