The last Blowout Forums package I was waiting for finally arrived today. What happened was, I paid for the one I wanted, then a day or two later the guy let me know he accidentally shipped me someone else's lot. Since I wanted to help the guy out, I offered to ship the cards to the correct person if he reimbursed me. He did, then sent my stuff, with a few bonuses. I paid something pretty cheap for this lot considering the hits, and overall I'm fairly pleased. The scans of the hits are blurry since the graded card case is so huge and I was too lazy to scan stuff individually. Everything is pretty much available for trade, though I have a feeling I know where some of the better stuff will end up.
Interesting related note: Matthews was the guy on the biggest hit I've ever pulled--an autographed UD 500-HR Club card from a pack of '99 or 2000 HoloGrFx that I grabbed at Target for $1. It was worth something like $1000 at one point, and then settled around $800 (even after he passed away), and was the centerpiece of my collection for a while, but I eventually decided to sell it, and I got a pretty good haul for it. I wasn't as attached to it since he played for a team I never cared about (although he was with the Tigers very briefly), but it was cool having something from a HOFer that hit 500 HR. (Cool story, bro)
Not bad for the $8 I paid, eh? This kind of lot shows up on Blowout pretty often and usually goes for a similar price, which can be a lot of fun, so keep your eyes peeled for more of those.
As far as I know this is my final Blowout blowout purchase. I did, however, make ANOTHER small one today (nice deal!), which I'll showcase when the stuff arrives.
