Finally, A Win On Listia

It took me months and months to finally win something off Listia with my initial free credit. Don't ask me how I won this lot because it happens to be a lot of 5 Dodger cards.

I thought for sure I was going to get outbid at the last minute by one of the many Dodger collectors out there. Must be they already owned these pieces.

I'm going to make this post short and sweet because you have much better material to read regarding 2013 Topps.

The above Sharperson was one of the cards I was gunning for as it is a "Gold Rush" parallel. Parallels and Gold speckle my collection throughout and when I see one for free, I just have to nab it.

These next three happen to be a bonus to the ones I was gunning for. I don't collect any of them but they may very well wind up in a trade package down the road.

The final card is a Piazza that has eluded me over the years but it's always been on the radar. Even when I was a kid.

I am really tempted to rip off the seal on this one and view it for the first time in all it's glory. Some might attest that this is an ugly card and I could see their point. However, art like this is something that I can really understand and art is what I think of it. 

And it's all mine now!!!!

Thank you for your pit stop over here at the Raven's Nest. No flagship yet : (

Ta Ta For Now :  )

  1. I saw these. I didn't bid though. I think the only one I need is the Sharperson parallel.

About Me

My Photo

I am the mostly obvious but sometimes not-so-obvious computer geek. If it can be done with computing technology, I'm interested. I serve to be the intermediary between human and information technology - connecting people and things to our digital planet and binary universe.

Back Story

I share a nice home on the river with my beautiful wife and two children. 

My oldest son (Zayden) is a cancer and stroke survivor and my other son(Tanner) is more intelligent than any 2 year old I know. They were born 10 months apart, making them "Irish Twins".

Zayden was treated by Vermont's Children's Hosipital and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. The nurses, doctor's and staff showed the utmost caliber of professionalism. Their dedicated team was crucial to our son's recovery and survival.

In the past, I have put my self through quite a bit (self inflicted mistakes) in regards to substance abuse but now  have everything in the world going for me as I continue through sobriety and exploration of life.


Information Technology...I love anything computers and am a full blooded Computer Geek. I am trying to break back into the IT world by getting my Bachelor Of Science in Information Sciences and Technology through Penn State. Besides my family, this is my main focus.

My website: 

Music... I have a big passion for music and I listen to most types of metal, hard rock, techno, trance, folk and much more...

I play guitar on a Schecter and play both acoustic and metal styles.

I also produce electronic music in FL Studio under a project called Mushraven that can be found here:     


Card Collecting... The hobby has grown and changed in so many ways...I'm glad to be apart of it once again. I am the proud author of the blog listed in the link below.

My Card Blog:  

Sports...  I am a huge METS and BULLS fan! I also like the Jets, Canadiens and Rangers.

Mycology... I enjoy growing Shiitake mushrooms and take photographs of fungi in the wild. Some of my pictures can be viewed here on G+ in the albums section.

Picture Taking...I don't call myself a photographer because that would be insulting to real photographers. Actually, I just like taking pictures of scenery and various other things.

Along with that I also enjoy being outside tinkering around, fishing, landscaping, and spending time with my wife and kids.

So congratulations, you've found me and by reading this you probably know more about me than I would like you to know. Just kidding, my life is an open book and I am what is known as a modern day geek. Not exactly the stereotypical kind but whatever...

I just love life basically...I can find almost anything interesting.
