Via their free shipping, I picked up a lot of set needs. Like these three for the '08 A&G set.
Always sucks when a set need is some high priced rookie card. Even worse when 50% of the bloggers follow the team but never seem to make an offer to trade you one. THANKS A LOT! Just kidding, guys. But these three leave me one card short of the 2008 set. I had actually bought it via Sportslots, but the seller forgot to include it. Got the refund, but wish I had gotten the card. Oh well - reorder.
Three cheap short prints for the 2013 GQ set. Still have a way to go with that one, though.
This is the only card I picked for my Petrick PC. It's even shinier than the scan. I completed 3 A&G mini sets through COMC: 2010's National Animals (I'm not going to scan all 50 cards - use the innerwebs if you want to see them all), 2012's Giants of the Deep...
...and 2012's Man's Best Friend.
I like these two sets a lot, so it's great they are complete. The biggest part of the COMC purchase started with this card.
That is the final base card I needed to complete the 2001 UD Hall of Famers set, the first want list I put on this blog. I didn't stop with the base set.
I completed all the inserts as well, including the Class of '36 set,
So nice having this one off the list. I will slowly work on all the relics in the set. Key word: slowly.
And not to get too much of an intro, here are videos of the two boxes of Masterpieces from Blowout Cards. Special off camera cameo by my wife in video #2.
Here's the scans of all the hits.
All but the Clemente are available for trade.
That was a good Black Friday for me. Definitely will be watching for more box prices to get some ripping in. If only I could find a box of 2008 UD Goudey at a good price.
Don't forget about my Tis the Season giveaways. Sign up for the card dump at this link. And keep watching for giveaways (one coming tomorrow) that only require a comment and an educated guess.
