And in a separate package, I picked up this nice relic:
Ok, so that is pretty great and all... here's where it gets crazier... trade night. Lots of product being busted and the wife & I went a little crazy with it being our last trade night in Alabama (most likely we'll be moving to Amarillo in about a month or so...). So the card shop owners have become great friends, and I'm telling you, you'll never find more genuine, honest and great guys. I'm really going to miss them and their shop. They presented me with the following as a thanks for hanging around and spending a ridiculous amount of money over the last 2.75 years:
But like many informercial salesmen I have to say, "But wait, there's more..." There was trade night! Pack wars! Boxes being busted! I won a prize ($50 off my tab) but the bigger thrill was some of the great cards I pulled... from a couple boxes of Triple Threads (the Walker is from a group break and came in the mail today as well):
Alright, you'd think that's it, but it's not... the wife got to ripping Golden Age and Goodwin... and we pulled this RARE redemption!
WHOA! Lucky!!!!!! We've redeemed it, although instantly regretted it as it may ship right about the time we move, depending on UD speedy-ness. May have to go in an change my address to one where I know it's not going to change between now and then! But a freaking sweeeeeeeeeet stroke of luck.
She didn't do too shabby on the Golden Age either:
Tatum O'Neal! That's the second auto of hers we've pulled, sold the first for $80! Great looking autos, even got a jockey! The relics are sweet too, Grace Kelly, Knute Rockne, Yogi Berra and Barry Williams. That Eve Plumb is a white bordered SP!
I also went with one box of Museum Collection, not the greatest results but definitely more trade bait!!!
That Billingsly is out of just 10 while the Gwynn is out of /25! Not too bad!
Ok, so one more... I picked up a box of 2009 UD Signature Stars just because it was cheap and why the heck not... here's what I got:
AND BOOM GOES THE DYNAMITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My first ever Bryce Harper auto pull!!!!! Out of a cheap throw away purchase just to open something different! WHOA!!!!! I instantly had a guy asking if I'd trade it away. I don't think so, think I'm holding onto this one for a while!
That'll wrap up today's mail and trade night post. Sorry for all the scans, just couldn't hold back on showing stuff off!!!!!!!!!
If there is anything you're interested in trading for on here, by all means please let me know. And Wes (Jaybarkerfan's Junk), it was great seeing you again tonight at trade night here in Mobile! Had a blast and hope you enjoyed it once again!
Ok, off to try and get some sleep.... wow... what a night!
