Oh Great... It's Tuesday and back to work...

It's been almost two weeks since I have had to go into work, and I'm not looking forward to it this morning... yuck...

Well, here's another awesome card to make my morning feel a bit better:

As my collection has grown, I've found Biggio autographs to be very difficult to track down. I've only got two and I paid a ransom for each. I think Biggio focuses more on signing for people rather than for the card companies, which I respect but also wish some company would find a way to get him to sign more by donating to the Sunshine Kids, a charity that Biggio supports BIG TIME. Anyways, beyond that, I really like this card. The auto/jersey combo is a big forced on this card, as the auto box is planted firmly right across Craig's torso. However it's a clear auto and a nice swatch. Being numbered 23/25 helps add some value as well. It's too bad Leaf/Donruss failed to keep traction in the card world, they really did put out some nice products back in the day (early 2000s, haha).

Should get a shipping update from Dave & Adam's card world today and be able to give you all an update on the boxes. I'll post an update on my twitter feed @thedimwit as soon as I know something.

Have a great day everyone!

  3. You're right, his autos are hard to find (and expensive)!

  4. Nice pickup! Miss Donruss MLB products too... although it's for a completely different reason. I miss the Perez DK's.
