So, I've picked up a few lots lately and I thought I'd show them off, as much of it is trade bait! Except for one card I forgot to take out, it'll be obvious: it's a Nolan Ryan card!
Next, I worked with some guys I know down in Alabama who have opened up a BUNCH of USA baseball box sets from 2014 - and coincidentally ended up with a bunch of Bregman and Cameron cards they didn't have any interest in! I was able to pick these up before Bregman went on his recent hot streak!
Finally for this post, I'm going to share my new side project. 2017 The Bar - Pieces of the Past. This product released in the last couple of months and I've been hooked on it. You ever see a cut auto of someone like Abraham Lincoln and wonder, "Sure there's a cut auto, but where is the rest of the paperwork it came from?" Wonder no more. The Bar has taken about 20 historical documents signed by various figures, featuring a bunch of ex-Presidents and guys like Einstien, MLK and the guy who built/designed the Statue of Liberty and made cut auto cards from them. The cut autos are redemption within the product, but the rest of the document is cut in to small pieces and attached to cardboard. Behold:
I recently purchased a discounted case online and it came with a special "Limited Edition 1/1 Pack" that included a card in a mag case:
Of all the relic cards, the J. Edgar Hoover cards are my least favorite, as I don't have a strong feeling about him, understand anything of his legacy and really just am not an FBI buff.
Several weeks ago, I bought some boxes online via my LCS facebook live page, and got this amazing card:
Anyways, it's a great set and I've really enjoyed putting it together. Maybe my next post, I'll scan in all the relics I currently have in hand!
Have a great weekend everyone!
