Crazy Day of Purchases and Trades!

Alright, first and foremost, TRADES!!!

Matt Perry (DocHoloday)
       Matt recently purchased a bunch of Gypsy Queen and one of his hits caught my eye... he's a guy I've always wanted a "hit" of but figured there weren't many out there. I didn't realize he was sending a me a buttload of mini's as well but here's the loot!

The Maris is just a sweet card, and it's definitely staying in my Keepers collection! Lots of mini's! I love it! Thanks Matt!

     Jeffrey was so kind to send this awesome card my way!
SWEEEET! Now I just need the blue border!!!! I know someone out there has it! The retail brown borders are awesome, just as much as the blue! I haven't seen a 1/1 black pulled yet but I'm sure they are ridiculously awesome!

Purchases... hold on to your seats everyone, this is going to be a long one!
First up, Kyle from Jabo's pointed this card out to me and I was able to pick it up at auction for $2.75 w/ free shipping!
/50! Sweeeeeet!

Next up, I picked up two rack packs of GQ the other day... here are the highlights!
 Again, the brown borders are awesome... in the top row, a couple of SP's!
J.P. Arencibia... not the worst auto one could pull this year!

Next up, I bought some cards from the LCS today... picked up a couple Berkman relics:
 And a card I had my eye on at the shop for some time...
A guy from the classic, Tinkers-To-Evers-To-Chance triple play combo! And a relic that dates back 100 years!!!! I finally pulled the trigger and happy I did... another non-Astro going into the permanent collection!

Finally, I knew I needed to get some retail GQ in order to get the Retail insert sets going... I picked up a total of 23 of the 30 I needed... here's the highlights of everything I got that I was able to remove from my want lists from the bunch of blasters I picked up! - Plus the black border, green border and sepia mini's I pulled...
 Inching closer and closer to the mini set!!!! I need more mini's!!!!!!!!!!!
Delgado auto, can't say I know of him... Gallardo, I now have his full and mini relics...  three more base SP's I needed!
Well, that wraps it up everyone! Please see my Want/Have list for 2012 Gypsy Queen if you want to make a deal, link is in the side bar! If there is a team you're collecting and want mini's I can go through and pull all the ones I've got for that team and let you know if you'd rather not go through all the numbers!

  1. That Evers card is really sweet. A hundred year old relic? Hod does Topps come up with items like this?
