OK.....I don't know when I'll get around to it, but a little is better than none.
I've been transferring some of my Linden cards out of magnetic one touch holders and have been putting them into regular toploaders. In the past, I would put all my memorabilia cards in one touch holders. But with the wave of jersey cards now upon us, I have decided to be a little more selective with what gets put where.
It was crazy to think that a $1 jersey card was getting the royal treatment while my quad auto /5 was getting slipped into a simple toploader. Well that all changed this past weekend. Now, all the "bigger ticket" cards are in the one touch holders and the rest are in toploaders.
Simple as that.
I also did a tiny bit of blog cleaning. I don't have a huge blogroll on the right hand side of the site, but decided to remove a couple of blogs (please....no offense) and added a few new reads.
I have always been intrigued by a couple of blogs written by one "cynical buddah". His Rollie Fingers collection and Robin Yount collection are ones that I truly enjoy reading about. It makes me feel like I'm not the only crazy one chasing endless cards of a certain guy.
I like checking out all the blogs listed on the side and urge you all to hunt down more fun reading material.
Now......on with the show.
Today was a one card mailday and while the card itself doesn't have any huge patch or a wicked auto, it does knock another one off the list.
2012/13 Upper Deck The Cup
#85 base gold /25
It's a nice looking base card parallel and in fact I forgot that I needed it. I've passed on a few copies recently thinking I already had it (and that doesn't happen too much).
When this copy popped up, I had to ask about the odd line in the upper left corner. The seller (whom I later learned is a member of the hobby boards I belong to...and have known for a bit) let me know that it appeared to be a printing defect as opposed to damage from mishandling. The moment I knew who the seller was.....I knew I'd be bidding on the piece.
The auction ended and I won the card for a decent price. A few days later and here we are.
Simple as that.
This puts me one step closer to finishing the second year of Cup (non 1/1) cards. It was a much better chase in comparison to year one. Only 4 cards to chase as opposed to 11. The crazy thing is that the one last card I need.........the regular base card.
Is that patience or just laziness?
Speaking of....I've got to get back to cleaning up my collection.
