|First two of what I hope to be many Jays relics|
A couple of decent Jays relics, an '02 Josh Phelps Tools of the Trade from Topps, and an '07 UD Game Materials Alex Rios.
|Assorted Gold/Chrome etc.|
All in all I'm quite happy with this purchase...$0.99 + $3 s/h, got me 10 cards that I didn't have, including a couple of numbered Topps Gold parallels, along with 5 chrome cards from various years, and a Travis Snider RC from 2009 UD A piece of history.
These 10 bring the current count to 555, with more coming in trades in the near future.
Next up, we have another auction that was won on the bay this week, this time from a fellow blogger, The Real DFG. Now this is a guy that I am willing to do trades/sales with again in the future. Not only does his blog name remind me of Rick Steiner, but his auctions are top rate, and the card he sent me was hermetically sealed for freshness! Once I broke down the package, this little beauty for my Maple Leafs collection was inside..
|'10-11 the Cup base|
(oh and BTW, lighting fast shipping as well, 3 days between auction win and card in hand)
Finally, I received a great little package from Jon over at the Community Gum blog today, a nice little value pack which included some Topps Lineage parallels...
|2 more to add to the Jays pile|
Aaron Hill Diamond parallel and the platinum parallel of Doug Drabek's boy, Kyle. I was glad to see that the Jays brought Kyle back up, and using him in the pen will put less pressure on him for the rest of this season. Jon also threw in as a bonus a Jays team set from the Lineage release, much appreciated.
Finally, this is my favorite card of the bunch....
|Scan doesn't do the card justice|
All in all, a good week for adding cards to my collection, and all 3 purchases were made for around $26 (including s/h), keeping me below budget for the week.
