TCDB Trade #7


It is always nice when a trade doesn't have to cross international borders or go through customs as was the case with a small recent trade from tcdb. It even has a little Canadian theme, starting with what was probably a big deal when it came out. Eric Lindros was going to be the next great player and Score pumped out cards of him like crazy, even including him in their 1990 Score Rookie & traded set.

COMC Spring Cleaning 3: Everything Else


On to part 3, everything else. I have been looking for a Yogi Berra bat card for a while and this is one of the nicest ones I have seen design-wise. The relic is very small, but I am still very happy to add this card to my catcher bat card collection.

COMC Spring Cleaning 2: Redskins


On to the Redskins, and more credit to Panini, they are the current kings of crazy parallels. This one is from Spectra and I was surprised at how thick this card is, I honestly can't keep up with Panini's many releases, but I guess this is a high end product? Whatever, crazy parallel and my first Josh Norman are enough for me.

COMC Spring Cleaning Sale 1: Rockies


A recent sale over at COMC led to a few purchases which led to a shipment coming my way which led to a stack of cards to scan and post. Starting with one of my top 2 favorite cards from 2016. There were a lot of Trevor Story cards covering his rookie year, but this one really stood out, not an action shot, but a different look with a dugout shot. The high socks and the black vests really sell it for me.

Not quite Bowman Black Collection, but it's close.

One card mailday from 2017 Topps Inception. My love for the Bowman Black Collection series spanning multiple brands and years is no secret here, so I was pretty choked when it disappeared. This is the closest Topps has come to bringing it back and it's pretty damn sweet. There is something about a black card with silver ink that is just straight classy.

A Small TCDB Trade


Along with slowing adding my collection to TCDB, there have been a few trades happening. After the Rockies called up Ryan Hanigan his cards made their way to the want-list. Just a professional catcher who is a joy to watch behind the plate, with the added bonus of fitting into the Goalie mask catchers collection.
