Got a few packages in the mail today from Ebay purchases.
The first was actually two packages of the same card. I had been trying for weeks to get my hands on a Ryne Sandberg Retired Rings card from 2012 Topps. Every time I placed a bid on one, at the last hour, I would always lose out at the last minute, or bidding would reach higher than I wished to pay. What I eventually did, was find 4 or 5 auctions and place bids that would take me to just slightly lower then the average going rate w/shipping. Well, sure enough my plan worked...... for two of them. I'll probably flip it on Ebay, that is, unless someone can make me a good enough offer.
The next group of cards is from 2012 Topps Heritage. I got a Josh Hamilton SP, as well as image swap variations for Hamilton and Starlin Castro. The Castro Chrome Refractor, I probably could have gotten sooner or later via trade, but I have no patience. The only non-Heritage card was the Hamilton card from Topps Gold Rush, which is a pretty cool-looking card. Now I just need to pick up the Starlin Castro from that set.
Lastly, I decided to pick up a cool relic card of Rangers World Series hero Mike Napoli. The one I got was a dual-relic card from 2009 Topps Ticket to Stardom, serial-numbered 78/224. In addition to the game-used memorabilia, the card also features a piece of a ticket stub, which is a cool feature. The Gypsy Queen card of Prince Fielder was an add-on for discounted shipping, and is up for trade.
That's all for now.
