Alright, I've got lots to update on... first of all, a recent 3-way trade between Rhubarb_Runner, Cards from the Quarry and myself... Thanks for another great trade guys! I ended up with this beaut:
THEN, I stopped by my local card shop and bought this AWESOME card...
MY FIRST BIGGIO AUTO!!! SWEEEEEEET!!!! The scan doesn't do it justice, but it's very shiny and awesome!!! A jersey/auto combo card from 2004, couldn't be happier.
Then I bought some Gypsy Queen and pulled this one:
Then I also bought my first (and only) hobby box of 2011 Topps Series Two... here's the goodies:
I did get a total of 7 diamond giveaway cards, none of them netting me anything better than a 1979 card, but I did unlock my first Die Cut of Neftali Feliz (I traded for a Schmidt). Anyone interested?
I am up to 30 rings now, may see about buying a "lot" of giveaway cards on eBay to try and get to 45. We'll see... Got the NY Yankees ring, which must be hard to dig up, because I now have 180+ trade offers mostly for that one ring.
Finally, all your group break participants will be happy to hear that all of your packages were shipped out today! Nick, I included that Jeff Weaver you asked about, just remember me when you get a sweet Astros to send back for it some time!
I'll have a need list for Series 2 and Kimball up soon! Thanks for stopping by everyone!
