My card-spending has been in-check lately (except for those 5 boxes I bought, ok, but those were a birthday present so they don't count. Ok, so maybe I got myself a bunch of other presents, but hey, I like being happy), but I did pick up a few things on ebay, mainly because I need trade-bait (which you won't see, of course, as they're headed directly to my usual trading partners).
If you followed baseball closely during the 94 strike, you know who Matt Williams is...such a waste. I would've preferred an auto in his Giants uniform, but hey, for $3, I'll take it. The Kennys Vargas was of course meant for Brian, but he already has a copy, so I'll gladly keep it in my collection !
Completely random purchase. In high school, though, I did mention to my then girlfriend that I loved the word penguin. She then took it upon herself to start a penguin collection for me (women...). So I suppose that 20 years later, if I got that card, it's because (thanks to) of her.
I have no idea who Kendall Graveman is. But he's sporting a Blue Jays uniform.
Him I know ! I don't know why I keep adding cards of players who eliminated the Knicks in 94. I must be a masochist. It's a good looking card, though, numbered to 30.
One of those inserts that I was curious to see in person, after seeing so many at the time in Beckett. I would've preferred the Griffey, but I don't feel like paying more than a dollar for a 90s insert from a pretty common set. That's some heavy 90s stuff right here for you.
The main course were those 2015 Stadium Club. They've been shown to death, but I'll just say that those are the gold parallels and that I got 15 for $1, so yay.
And finally, I got a bunch of 89 Bowman is back. I don't know why. Those are half cheesy, half shiny. But it's not everyday that I can get about 50 cards for $7 shipped to my place in France. Woohooo !
