I went a little overboard last week, starting with a couple random Blowout purchases, followed by an extremely productive few hours on Sportlots, capped off by a couple COMC grabs and an eBay win. If USPS stops randomly stealing some of my mail, all of that will get posted when it starts arriving next week.
This was actually my first Sportlots experience, and while I'm not 100% happy with the workings of the site, I'm thrilled with the results. I won't reveal just how many of my wantlist sets I completed amongst all the purchases I mentioned above until I've received everything, but needless to say, I think you'll be impressed.
One of my Sportlots purchases actually arrived already today, which is awesome considering I just ordered it Thursday! A 2008 SAGE Hit football card of Paul Raymond, #71, completes that set for me. It's a slow start, but I promise you I'll finish with a bang!
Ok, card show report, personal buys:
Dustin and I hit up the card show this morning/afternoon, and it went pretty well, although I didn't find as much stuff for my PC this time. I did do fairly well in terms of grabbing even more trade bait stuff, though, and you'll see that in a post in the next couple days. Here's what I grabbed for myself:
Not pictured: an opened box set (sans autograph, probably of a scrub) of 2010 Donruss Rated Rookies football. I've wanted one of these for a while, and a seller (from whom I grabbed a couple other cards listed below) wanted $5 for it. Sold!
|Rich Hill 2008 SP Legendary Cuts Destination Stardom Memorabilia jersey|
|Andrew Cogliano 2010 SP Game-Used Edition Authentic Fabrics jersey|
|Brendan Morrison 2007-08 Be a Player Signatures auto|
|Steve Shields 2002 Be A Player Signature Series auto|
|Adrian Arrington 2008 Bowman Sterling Gold Refractor auto RC|
|Adrian Arrington 2008 Playoff Contenders auto RC|
|Adrian Arrington 2008 Press Pass Signings auto|
|Adrian Arrington 2008 SAGE Red auto|
|Braylon Edwards 2008 Finest Finest Moments auto|
So, not a huge haul, but I did break the 250 football hit mark, made it to 16 Arringtons and Edwardses each, plus hit my 17th Rich Hill and 12th hockey hit. That's a pretty good day by my measure. I'm pretty sure Dustin had a good time, too, and I know he'll be showing off his loot pretty soon--he seemed pretty proud of what he snagged, and I think he should be.
Coming up in the next day or so: trade bait results from the card show (hint: even more than last time). And after that, hopefully, some set-finishing mail days.
