More card shop pick ups.

I have not had much to write about recently, still working on my personal collections, as we all know, they are a never ending work in progress. I hit up my local card shop, DJ's Collectible Shoppe the other day and picked up a few cards to add to my collection.
There were more cards there that I wanted to get, but I had to limit myself, plus I forgot my list at home. I had an idea of which cards I have and don't have, but sometimes the old brain tends to forget and I'll pick up a double or two. I hope to go back to DJ's soon and pick up some more cards.
There are a few card shows lined up between now and the end of September, so I hope to hit one or two and see what I find there. Here are a few cards that I picked up at DJ's.

Value pack hits

Hey, I hope that everyone has been well. I have been missing in action for awhile now dealing with some medical issues. So I have not had much to write about recently as far as baseball cards go. I did have a few hits from some value packs, so I guess it's a good way to start back up on here. I am slowly getting back in a baseball state of mind, but not all the way there as of yet. I have watched a few spring training games, not too bad, but I am ready for the regular season to start up. Well here I have five cards that I got in some value packs from Target, nothing great, but it gives me something to write about.

Card shop Vlad

I started a collection of Vladimir Guerrero not too long ago, I always enjoyed watching him play, but truly enjoy watching him at the plate, I think of him as the "man with no strike zone".
I have a few cards of his cards in the boxes of many cards that I have so I pulled them out, put them in a binder and the collection began.
I have also acquired some of his cards through a few trades with some fellow bloggers, but last week I stopped by my local card shop, DJ's Collectible Shoppe and picked up a few Vlady cards. I did not have a list with me, so I just picked up a few that I knew that I did not have. I'd like to thank Jason at DJ's for having a great shop, keep up the great work.

The cards pictured are as follows:

2003 SP Authentic #65
2004 Diamond Kings #49
