More 2011 Topps Lineage - Got Some Autos

When I went to the card shop this past weekend and got my pack of Topps Marquee, I also picked up two more packs of 2011 Lineage.

I busted both packs and was happy to see that I pulled two autographs from the packs.

 I knew about these 1952 Topps autos and I really really really wanted to pull the Virgil Trucks.  THat would be awesome.  I got this Joe Astroth, though, and was still happy with it.  He played in the majors from 1945-1946 and 1949-1956 for the Philadelphia and Kansas City A's.  He had career numbers of 401 hits, 13 home runs and a .254 batting average.  This auto was an on card auto.

I also pulled this sticker auto of Johnny Gomes.  I'm indifferent towards whether an auto is on card or sticker.  It doesn't matter to me, as long as the card looks good, and both of these cards are pretty sharp.

So, one trip to the card shop and I get a Hank Aaron relic and two autographs.  Not too bad.

Those '52 Topps autos are nice. At least the sticker doesn't stand out on that card. That's my big complaint with stickers. Too often they use those reflective stickers that just look terrible. That one looks good.

Nice pulls man, and I agree with Play at the Plate on that one. The original 52 autos look sweet!
