September 2018 Ebay Wins

Blog activity has been really light lately.  I’m sorry about that.  I’m not sure if I’m going to explain why I’ve been away, but maybe.  It’s worth talking about, but I just don’t know if and when that might actually happen.

So, instead, I’ll just run through my September Ebay wins.  It feels like it’s been a long time since I’ve done one of these, but in reality that’s party because I’m essentially caught up.  At this point, I’m waiting on delivery of a couple more late October cards, but I’ve at least accomplished staying up to date on something.

This post will be short, and I’ll let you know that the autograph train ended in August.  I had a good run, but nothing doing this month.

Look at that big ass grin

But first, I’m going to wedge in another card that wasn’t an auction win.  I bought a single blaster of Heritage High on a whim.  I got this Montero card out of the deal, but nothing else I collect so I’m just tossing it in here.

Rock on

Now we get into the rarer stuff.  I’m slowly picking up these Big League parallels.  They’re a little tougher to come by than the Bunt ones and I don’t know if it’s because there’s more unopened product, or that the ones I see are priced higher, or people are keeping them and not selling.

Just like in the old days

Whatever the case, I’m still getting a couple of them here and there, so that’s pretty good.

This is the green version if you couldn’t tell

I don’t see a ton of these high end parallels up for auction.  Tribute is about as bland in terms of design as Bowman, but it’s about the hits.  The card stock is think and it has some tactile elements at least.

Red Phoenix #/99

Here’s a card from the Chronicles product.  I’m hoping to buy a box of this at some point, because it seems intriguing.  Really, it’s just going to show how many other baseball products we’re missing out on.

Wonderful shiny blue

I’m pretty surprised it took me 8 years to land this card, but it was worth the wait.  I love the look of these Hope diamond parallels.  Collecting is a marathon, though, and that’s the only running I’m doing.

Only 2 years to get this

So, I didn’t get an autograph, but I did finally manage to knock another Transcendent card off my list.  I still haven’t found a sketch card for Frank Thomas that isn’t a ridiculously overpriced BIN, but maybe some day.  Honestly, overall I’ve been very lucky to not only get a heavy hitter several months in a row, sometimes several, but be able to afford them.  October looks to be auto-less as well, but there will be a couple more big cards.  It just won’t be another Transcendent or a hope diamond.
