3/8/15 card show report: Taylor trade bait

Two card shows in one week?!  Yep, after heading to the small show in Brighton last Sunday I went back to my new usual haunt in Taylor.  And this time almost all my money went towards trade bait so I can hopefully get more packages out in the next few weeks.

Besides the usual haul that can be viewed tonight on TMM, I did pick up one card for myself to show off here:
Greg Maddux 2008 Topps Chrome Refractor
Doesn't matter how many times you see it, it's still weird that Mad Dog was a Padre for parts of 2007 and 2008!  Anyway, I found this '08 Chrome Refractor for $0.50 and decided that the timing was right to add it to my Maddux collection.  I've still got something like 100 cards of his from complete sets to scan not to mention a bunch more singles, but at least this is a quick and easy one to show off today.

As I said, everything else is trade bait that's destined for new addresses soon, though I did find one hit that didn't have an obvious home but was worth landing for just $1:
It's a Jamaal Anderson 2007 SP Rookie Threads Rookie Lettermen Silver manupatch auto, #191/199.  If anyone would like to claim it in trade it's theirs, otherwise I'm fine sending it to COMC eventually.

Otherwise, some of you should keep a close watch on your mailboxes this month!  For now, though, if your neck of the woods is finally warming up like mine is, why not get outside for a bit.


  1. I like the Letterman autos but they will drive you bonkers trying to go for the whole name. A couple years back I finished the Noel Devine "MOUNTAINEERS." My dream was the complete the Pat White's that were all # /7.

    1. Jeez, that's insane! Pretty much I've just done four-letter names, except for the Cazzie Russell "MICHIGAN" but that was still only eight cards--I'd hate to have to chase down 12! For some reason people seem to put a premium on those letters too, even for the scrubs.
