I really appreciate Jake leaning on me for help with his collecting goals. I'm hoping that I will continue to have the opportunity to help him out when I am able. Thanks so much for the stuff, Jake, and thanks again for the trade!

The card measures 4.5" x 6.5", so eventually I'm going to have to find myself a 5 x 7 frame so I can put this on the wall. It looks awesome.
I kind of wish they would issue an A&G set with this design. I would go after that set in a heartbeat!

Please note, I will be referring to Max S. as Max from now on. Those who have been reading this blog since its inception will remember that I used to know someone else named Max who had been featured quite a bit on here. Since we no longer associate with one another, I will not be referring to him at all and I didn't want anyone confusing the two. So, from now on, Max S. is who I will be talking about; a really good guy from Chicago. I hope that clears up any confusion.

The above 1956 Topps Yogi Berra was something I saw early at the show and I waited to jump on it until later. It is in really rough shape, but I think it looks cool. It had a price tag of $10.00 on it, but I got it for $7.00 which I think was a deal, regardless of the condition.
Anyway, that is my look at my haul from the card show. Not shown is the cheap stack of 13 cards from 1954 Topps for my buddy Jet's set. I also picked up a good many Cubs cards for my buddy, Max S.
This will probably be my last major buying venture until after Christmas. I need to save some money just in case the Orioles decide to start playing better once the playoffs start and they advance to the World Series. I also need to start working on a couple birthdays that are coming up, as well as Christmas.

I had built up a good bit of store credit when a couple of those stupid sparkle SP cards from a couple years ago sold out of my account. The sparkle card is such a dumb concept, but I'm not complaining, because I was able to flip the two I pulled for quite a few PC and set needs. These two Panini Prizm cards alone make up for the loss of those goofy sparkle cards, in my opinion.

A couple weeks ago, I filled up my little Ebay cart with a few cards that I knew I needed. I saw a couple vintage cards for good prices, and also tried to knock out a few pieces to my Chris Davis 2014 Topps Chrome rainbow.
I got the above Ernie Banks from 1967 Topps at a really good price, $16.99. Not bad, the card is in great shape. I figured that I shouldn't let the card pass me by, especially since I knew that I needed it.

The above 2011 Topps Finest Dual Relic/Auto of Britton is especially awesome and is numbered 57/69. Britton has really come into his own this year as the Orioles' closer and I am glad I was able to get this before values start to jump up the more he is exposed during the O's run.
Thanks for the great deal, Lonestargraphs. It would be better if I knew your name, but oh well. Sometimes a degree of anonymity is a good thing. I know we will trade again, though.
