Anyway, we've been exchanging mails with Matt from Bob Walk the plank (great name, great blog, great blogger) and pulled the trigger on a blind trade. A 'let's go in the woods in the dark, I'll show you mine and you'll show me yours' kind of deal. And, well, let's just say that I feel like I got the prom queen to show me hers. And she showed me a little bit of everything.
Gypgsy Queen definitely looks better in black. And mini. And with a serial.
Those mini relics are really a hit. Don't know who came up with the idea in the first place, but great one ! Already had the Alex Rios from that collection, so that's a nice addition.
My first Chacin auto, and a great looking one at that. It's all shiny and all, which the scan doesn't show.
I had no idea Pristine existed before yesterday. And today, I get this sealed and encased card of Halladay from the Uncirculated insert set. It's really pretty cool (I wonder how I landed the Prom queen with sentences like 'it's pretty cool'), and limited to 375 copies. Nobody ever touched that card (not the case of the Prom queen, but who am I to judge ?) ! and now it's mine !
Here's the monster from the package. An incredible looking Triple Threads numbered 1/9.
1 of 9 ! I don't own any printing plates or 1/1 yet, but this one is a real beauty. Now I know why they make super thick top loaders. It's a sticker auto and I still love that card. It says a lot !
Matt even managed to hit my Knicks collection needs with this cool Allan Houston card numbered out of 99.
Thanks a lot Matt. Really. I'm so grateful that I can't begin to express it.
I just hope you'll call me after that and that it won't be a one night stand !
