Wow, ok so the mailbox was chock full of goodness upon our return from Christmas break...
First of all a trade with Arno of I'm Ballsy fame... we hammered out a deal where I ended up with these two beauts:
Coot Veat and the Vealtones, this one is headed right back out to the mail on Monday! The Hollywood card is for the wife of course, she loves the old leading men and ladies of Hollywood's Golden Era.
Next up, a quick redemption from Topps!
Next up, a purchase from BrentAndBecca on eBay. They had a bunch of the Leaf Buybacks /20 on sale and none of the Astros had any bids, so I snatched all these up!
A long awaited package that I wasn't sure would ever show up... a couple months ago now, Kevin aka The Diamond King held a Trade Bait Draft and I jumped in. The cards accidentally got mailed to my former Houston address on November 17th. The package was stamped "return to sender" then had a forwarding label slapped over it, so apparently the current occupant took the package to the PO and they finally realized I had a forwarding request in... anyways, long story short I got my cards!!!!
I ended up with quite a bit of trade bait and a few keepers... all the bait has been added to my photobucket for those interested... behold...
And then some nice vintage and base cards!
I've got more stuff to show off tomorrow once we're 100% unpacked!
Hope you all had a VERY Merry Christmas, and sorry for the prolonged break, but I think I needed it!
