Call me Motown, baby, cuz check out all these hits:
As previously promised, here's a quick look at all the stuff I picked up recently:
The combined results begin here with a good mix of players: Jake Long (my favorite card of the bunch--I really like those RPM autos), Tai Streets, Leon Hall, Bennie Joppru (my first I believe), John Navarre and Alan Branch, most of which appear in a Michigan uniform, which is even sweeter.
These took me a while to scan and optimize, as you probably guessed, and I did scan them individually as well, but those won't end up in the PC album for a little bit since those will take longer. HOWEVA, if you haven't seen enough scans today, enjoy these the following.
Detroit Tigers hits!
The reason I'm posting these now is that I picked up a couple this week, also from BlowoutCards, and I thought that it was time to put them up as well. They'll also have their own album link up on the top right pretty soon as soon as I get a chance to get them scanned and uploaded individually as well. For now, please enjoy them in all their group scan glory:
Beardy, a Sizemore from the same set from Georgia Mindset's group break, a pair of aces from a Daily Dimwit trade package, and a Triple Threads White Whale (not a printing plate) Verlander I just got from a BlowoutCards purchase.
Reds and More; a Jack Morris autograph I've had for quite a while; and finally, a Hank Greenberg manu-patch also from Daily Dimwit (holy crap was that a nice trade package for me!). I'll probably work on adding to this at some point, though Wolverines remain my main focus. But I feel like I should keep piling up the Verlanders as he keeps piling up wins.
What's that thing called when you're not spending your money on cards, but trying to get money from other people for YOUR cards?
Oh yeah, selling! As a bit of news, I sold my 2010 Topps Chrome Brennan Boesch Blue Refractor auto/RC from GA's group break, and for a pretty penny at that. Two items I listed didn't sell, however, so I relisted them. If you're interested in either:
-Jimmy Clausen 2010 Topps Bowman Chrome auto #1/25: I had something like 12 watchers but nobody thought to bid. I'm dying for someone to take this Emu auto off my hands. Some of you may remember that this was Topps making up for shorting me a pack in a value pack, which was pretty awesome, even if it was Jimmy "I'm a talentless, stupid-looking jerkass" Clausen.
-Ryan Howard 2010 Topps Peak Performance auto/bat: I pulled this from my 2010 Topps Series 2 box, much to my surprise at the time. I was very excited until I saw the peeling damage to the clear plastic cover at the bottom of the card. By the time I contacted Topps I'd thrown out the box and packs they wanted from me (I had no idea they'd be that difficult about it) so I just gave up. It's still a pretty sweet card, and it didn't sell when I listed it at $50, but as of this writing it's got a $40 bit, which I'm pretty happy about.
Before y'all accuse me of being a greedy capitalist, I'd like to assure you all that all proceeds go to the "Too Many Grandersons? If anything I don't have enough--let's go buy more shit!" fund, because, let's be honest, anybody that's older than 12 and still buys cards probably isn't the most fiscally responsible person.
Until next time, whenever that is, enjoy this plethora of pictures, and thanks as always for reading.
