Another Christmas post

Another gift from Christmas time that arrived recently. Above is an 2007 Exquisite Rookie Signature Signatures numbered out of 99. I had been after one of these for a while and was either outbid everytime or I didn't agree with the BIN price. This one came up for auction with reasonable shipping so I made sure I won it! It looks great with my other Exquisite Linds.

This next card was not a Christmas gift, well I guess it was a Christmas gift to myself!

2010 Topps Finest Red Refractor numbered out of 25! Another card I had been after for a long, long time. This one does not hit eBay very often and when they do I miss them for one reason or another. I almost missed this one had Hairylemon not pointed it out to me. For a very reasonable price I was able to add this to my other Finest Linds.

I'm now only missing the 1/1. I doubt I will ever see that one because its probably trapped in someones collection.

In my next post I'm going to chart my progress of obtaining the Giants team sets from 1958 up to now.

Merry Christmas to me!!

I know its a few weeks after Christmas but today some of my Christmas buys arrived, not all of them, but some.

I'm only going to feature one card, one card that is probably now the jewel in my collection.

Here is my one and only 1/1!!

I picked this up from the bench for what I think was an absolute steal, since I have bought other Lind cards with a much higher print run for more than I paid for this.

Now I hope my other cards show up this week, because I'm tired of waiting.
