The November project purchase #2: Kyle Drabek Triple Threads Auto/jersey

I am a sucker for these Triple Threads jersey cards, and when I found this one at such a cheap price, I couldn't say no.

The card knocks off the autograph portion of the requirements, and of course since he's a Blue Jay Drabek fits into the collecting goals as well.

Card Purchased (1):  2011 Topps Triple Threads Auto Jersey Doug Drabek #95/99 (94 cards remaining)
Cost:  $3.99 + $3.00 shipping +$0.42 tax (ugh) =$7.41 ($18.02 total spent, $81.98 left)
How won:  I was the only bid on this auction.  Seller is mk0914

Card took a couple of extra days to get here because of Sandy, but the wait was well worth it.

I like everything about these cards, expect for the price (normally).  The idea of the jersey cutouts forming something that has meaning to the player on the card is a good idea from where I sit.

Still a long way to go, and a nice chunk of change to spend.  

I'm sure I wouldn't have pulled something like this from the Heritage High Numbers...

Thanks for reading, Robert
