Hello all. I am back from a great family vacation in the Outer Banks part of North Carolina and things are piling up here at the Buffet. I have so much to catch up on between my job, home chores and blog stuff so here is a quick hit from an envelope I have had sitting around waiting to be posted.
A little while back, Dave of Drinking the Orange Kool-Aid held a contest to try and find a solution to storing his tobacco sized cards and all who offered suggestions were entered to win some jersey cards. After several good ideas were submitted he took all our names and threw them into the Random.org virtual shake up machine and after 5 randomizations (Thanks to his son for picking 5) my name was on top. Here are the prize cards:

Hello Buffet readers. It's been very busy around here so posts have been scarce. I have been working a bunch to get ahead and prepared for a family vacation I am leaving tomorrow night for and time has been very limited. I have this post and then will probably not be able to get any more in for a week to ten days while we are away.
Like the title says, "size doesn't matter", I will collect it if it is a Mets card.
When I return I have a bunch of stuff to catch up on here at The Buffet. Coming soon:
- Trade posts
- A 46 card COMC purchase posts
- A box break from a 2008 box (try to guess which product)
- A new feature on binder sorting preferences
- A new feature of pet peeves of mine when it comes to cards.
- More pack rips on the Pack Rip Cafe and A Pack To Be Named Later

Hey all, back today with a quick card post. I got this gem from a fellow trader on a trade post site (SCF) I used to use a lot but don't use much any more. It is a good group of traders and I have gotten some great cards in the past but there is too much emphasis on book value and it is just straight text posts on wants and needs. I enjoy the whole blog community atmosphere much better and only occasionally check the boards now. A good trader I have had several trades in the past contacted me about interest in a Brian Giles jersey card I had and offered me this beauty.

Hey again all. Today I have some cards from Mike Pelfrey Collectibles as he is thinning out his collection and changing the direction of his blog so his sale of cards was a great score for me. It always feels better spending some money to help out a fellow blogger then just funding an anonymous E-bay seller. On with the loot.

Hey all. Today I have more mailbox goodies from back during the two weeks of craziness of overtime and fundraising. The first package is from Chris, aka Fan Of Reds, from Nachos Grande. We hooked up on a 2010 Topps inserts for inserts deal. I sent a bunch of Peak Performance among other stuff and I got these.
Next up is a package from Nick, aka LongLiveThe Who, at For Cards Sake. I commented on an SP Top Prospects Game Used Bat Piece Alex Escobar card he posted about and a deal was in motion. I sent him some Yankees and Roy Halladay cards and he hooked me up with these.

Hello again Buffet readers. Today I have a trade post about a package I received from Stats On The Back. They post stacks of cards from specific players and offer them for trade. I have made several trades with them and always been very happy with the returns. This time around I grabbed 2 stacks, Pete Rose, Fernando Valenzuela, and a Nolan Ryan single. The Pete Rose cards basically doubled my count as did the Fernando lot.
