Austin Jackson 2010 Topps Chrome auto
Aw yeah, here's where it gets good! AJax may be gone from Motown for good after the deadline deal that brought David Price to the Detroit sent the young star to the Mariners. Still, I remain of fan of him and his Tigers cards. How can you NOT like a Chrome, on-card signature of a significant Tigers player of the last few seasons? This is just my second autograph of Jackson overall (here's the Triple Threads version I already had) and I must say I was surprised to have something this nice pop out of the package!
Mickey Lolich 2004 Sweet Spot Classic Game Used Memorabilia jersey (#222/275)
Speaking of nice additions, here's another one I know I didn't have before--my first relic of Lolich, the hero (and MVP) of the '68 Series. Mickey won all three of his starts in that series, including games 2, 5, and #7, in which he outdueled Bob Gibson. He even chipped in a homer in game 2! And did I mention all three of his wins were complete games? That's about as good as it gets for a pitcher in the Fall Classic! This sweet Sweet Spot Classic jersey will go nicely with my Lolich autograph, and maybe I can see if I have his RC to put together the trifecta.
Matt, thanks a ton as usual for some fun new cards that have (or will have) found a new home. Better yet, I can even promise that I have an interesting return package I'll be sending your way soon! Readers, head on over to Bob Walk the Plank once you're done reading this post.
