I received another envelope full of cards today (things should be slowing down rapidly from now on mail-wise, so I'll try not to get used to this too much), this time from ebay purchases I made last week. LAST WEEK ! This is crazy. Less than 6 weeks to receive cards...it's too overwhelming for me actually, I might need to take a moment.
Anyway, as I often explained, I hardly ever chase a particular card on ebay. I simply browse the items my favorite sellers have for sale. As if I was in an LCS just looking around. Which explains the complete randomness of what I pick up. It's probably not very smart, I should focus more on real wants, but there are sooooo many cards out there and soooooo many that I don't even know exist, that I prefer doing it that way. It's more fun to me.
I couldn't imagine not having a Don Mossi card in my collection. Sorry Julie, I'm keeping this Tiger this time !
A couple of 2015 Heritage purple refractors. I wonder if the refractors are SPs also ?
Topps mini ! From Topps Mini online exclusive. I have no idea what that is, but I'll take their word for it.
This, apparently, is an encased box topper. I had no idea whatsoever that box toppers existed, 20 years ago. A whole new world unfolding before me. This is a chrome xfractor (ooooooh. fancy) numbered 21/57.
I picked it up because it's Alomar (probably the year of the spitting incident, I don't remember when that was exactly) and because it looked really cool. This time I wasn't mistaken, this is really die-cut, and it is pretty cool.I'll have to see if I can find the Griffey from that set.
Some Braves stitches ! No, this is not Jaybarker's blog. THe one on the left I picked up because it's Andruw Jones. I used to collect Sheffield cards 20 years ago. Before he...well, you know. And the one on the right I got simply because I think it looks very nice. And it's numbered 10/25. And it's meant for Wes at some point.
Just a shiny auto. I believe Sierra never made it to the majors, but I just liked the card.
