Ok, so last night was trade night at the LCS and I actually did some trading! As well as bought another box of 2007 Masterpieces because I just can't resist some Masterpieces goodness. Although at this point I really should. If anyone needs cards from 2007 Masterpieces, just let me know I'm sure I have at least one full extra set and can spare some duplicates!
As for my loot, we'll start with the trade bait section of what I got:
Finally, here are some cards I traded for:
There in the center, the jewel (literally and figuratively) of my trade evening, the Gypsy Queen Jewel card. A customer at the LCS overheard me a few weeks ago talk about how I'm putting together the mini's and complete sets of GQ and thought I might like it. I wanted to snag one of these, but didn't want to pay big bucks for it. In the end, I didn't pay all that much and I'm very happy with this card! It is awesome!
Yesterday was pretty awesome overall, although my SHSU Bearkats' loss to NDSU stung a bit. The Texans won convincingly in the first ever playoff game in their history and I was yelling and jumping up and down on every big play. FYI: JJ Watt is a BEAST! The fact that he even caught that interception was amazing, but to then have the focus to run it back for the TD? AWESOME. I believe that play single-handedly gave the Texans the momentum they needed to close the door in the second half... oh, and how sweet is it to have Andre Johnson at full strength? He looked great despite a couple drops... and I can't say enough about Arian Foster. That last touchdown run was awesome, they Bengals thought they'd just try to knock him out of bounds rather than MAN UP AND TACKLE so they got what they deserved: a TD run to seal the victory. Congrats Texans. Now lets hope we can put together a solid game plan to beat Baltimore: STOP RAY RICE and never under any circumstances allow Joe Flacco be a reason we lose.
Have a great Sunday everyone!
