December 2017 Ebay Wins Part 2

Yesterday, I showed off the first part of my December wins. It’s pretty rare for me to get the part 2 of anything up so quickly, but I checked and there were only 4 more cards to end the month and the year.  I also wanted to just get it out of the way now, because I’m leaving town for about a week very soon and this will likely be my last post until the end of May (then after that I have to leave the country for 3 weeks in June, but let’s not talk about that right now).

So, let’s send this off on a bang.

The hair was thrown in for free by me

I just know there are a lot of Studio Portraits out there in the hands of people that collected over a decade ago and then just ignore their cards now.  So many parallels to chase and slowly pick off.  This one is the Diamond Kings White #/60.

Nice to see the Class listed on the side

Here’s a card that likely is part of the lot I referenced before. I really don’t know what the main impetus was for finding that seller anymore.


If I cataloged this card correctly, it’s from the Father’s Day promotion that Panini did.  I have a another version of this card too with a higher numbering that really looks virtually identical.  You’ll see that as some point, I’m sure.

Now if you thought that this card #/50 was the best find of the month, you are underestimating my abilities.  It was a cheap one, obtained for the minimum, but the best of the month is…


…this Topps Chrome auto!  One of the interesting parts of these past few years is that Frank Thomas continues to sign autographs at a rapid pace, and so the prices overall are going down.  I don’t recall exactly what I paid for this, but I do know I started trying because I saw how cheap this particular auto seemed to be for what it was and its print run.  I’m happy to be in a position where I can chase autographs more frequently, so my hope is that you’ll start to see a few sprinkled into the 2018 ebay posts.
