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.

Anders hooked me up with this awesome purple refractor of Davis, which I received right after his suspension for Adderall use. Ugh. Not Anders's fault, for sure. I still love Davis and I still love the card.
Also, I really really like this year's version of Chrome. From what next year's base Topps design is looking like, I think next year's Chrome is going to be amazing.
Anders is a really good guy and I'm glad I was able to make a trade with him. Furthermore, while this post was waiting to be written, Anders and I made another deal. That one will be posted sometime soon, if I can get caught up, that is. Thanks for the deal, Anders!

I keep getting nice Hall of Famers from 1962 and when I do get around to working on this set, I will have a great head start. Koufax stuff always carries a premium, so getting this one at the price I paid was an awesome deal.
Thanks for the deal, Rob! I am excited to see what cards pop up next.

Thanks for the deal, Blaine, I really appreciate it. This stack of cards will put a major dent in my 1969 set.

He hooked me up for my birthday. I got the above 1962 Topps Orlando Cepeda, which is a great card. I've picked up a few cards from this set here and there. I already have Mays and Mantle, so I could take a look at building this one at some point in the future. Not right now, though, since I already have 1959 and 1969 on my plate and 1967 looming over the horizon.
I appreciate the birthday gifts, Carson. Thanks so much!

I already had a Grant ball, a ball I got for free while in Cooperstown, but it was badly faded. I can now upgrade it like I have been wanting to for a while.
Barrett played from 1982 to 1991 for the Red Sox and Padres. He had a decent career, with 938 hits, 18 homers and a .278 batting average. He was the 1986 ALCS MVP.
Nieto inscribed his ball with '87 WS Champs, which is pretty cool. He played from 1984 to 1990 for the Cardinals, Expos, Twins and Phillies. He won the World Series while with the Twins in 1987, of course.He didn't actually play in the World Series with the Twins, but he did play in the 1985 World Series while with the Cardinals.
White played his entire career with the Yankees from 1965 to 1979 and was a 2-time All Star. He had 1,803 hits, 160 home runs and a lifetime average of .271. He played in three World Series with the Yankees from 1976 to 1978, winning two (1977 and 1978).
Thanks so much for the birthday box, Michael, I really appreciate it!
