So how did everyone do cardboard wise? Did anyone get any nice little treats sitting at the bottom of your tree? Any big pulls?
I had no cardboard to open this Christmas because none of my family or friends have a clue on what I like and I would have probably ended up with a few packs of 1989 Topps or a nice big stack of 88 Donruss. Oh the horror.
But on Christmas eve my wife and my stepson both said they wanted me get myself something nice and they would consider it my main Christmas present. They both gave me a budget and told me to see what I could find.
I had my eyes set on pre-ordering a jumbo of Topps 2011 and very nearly pulled the trigger. I then set my sights on a box of Bowman Chrome and a box Bowman draft, again I let them go. Instead I picked up a couple of singles, including my first 1/1! I'm not showing off the 1/1 until I get it in hand, just incase it gets lost in the mail but I will let you take a look at some of my other cards.
First up with have this Manufactured bat barrel from Topps update 2010. This was from my stepson. The card has a print ran of 25, the card I have is 25/25, so that makes it an eBay 1/1! Awesome! I now have both the brown bat and the black bat versions of this card. I will probably never have the pink. It was on eBay about a month ago but went alot higher than I anticipated.
This is one of the cards that was from my wife. It came up on eBay as BIN with a price 5 times lower than the other BINs of this card, it was even cheaper than the one on COMC so I thought, why not? The seller also had another cheap Lind auto. I'll save that one for my next post.
