Hey everyone... thanks to those who have e-mailed or facebook'ed me with birthday wishes, much appreciated it.
I have a few packages in the mail today... first of all a contest win from Ryan G from This Card Is Cool. I had won a contest over there, and had also admired this card that he picked up at a card show... so he sent it to me for my winnings:
Next up, I bought a card from Trey from Rants, Reviews and Fandom. He was selling off his Hunter Pence collection after Hunter was traded to Philly. So I snagged this manu-plate:
Next up is my side of a trade with Dennis over at Too Many Grandersons not only did he hook me up with a fat stack of Astros goodies, but he also sent me these nice cards:
Oh, you wanted sick mojo? Well... I will deliver... but first you have to put up with some very non-sick mojo. My wife bought me two more boxes of UD Black for my birthday. The first box was very "meh" and if this was the first box I had opened I might be a bit disappointed in the product, but you take the good with the bad on this product:
Next we have the first card of box two... not a great card, a common in it's insert set, but I like the design and the silver sharpie signature is nice as well:
Alright, so here's the super sick awesome mojo... I'll let it's awesomeness speak for itself:
Yes, the most expensive BV base card in the set... drool... drool... drool... I apparently have a propensity to pull this guy's awesome cards, having also pulled his cabinet loader 1/1 from A&G last year... Hopefully this will fetch me $300 or so... or three more boxes of UD Black at BigHits (yes, Nathan, I'm talking to you... haha!)...
Have a great rest of your week everyone!
