I've been in the midst of a major collection overhaul here at Junkie central over the past week. I'll go into more detail later, but for now let me tell you about this card show I attended on Saturday.
We'll go Griffey-first this time....
One gentleman always has a table of relic cards and sells them to me on the cheap. I usually pick up one or two every time I go. This particular day he whipped out a stack of non-relic Griffeys that widened my eyes and loosened my wallet. I never would have bought this many as he was looking them up in a Beckett (usually a bad sign), but then he started knocking off like 80% of the list price. I was free to indulge...

Last but not least, I picked up this sweet Hank Aaron from one of my favorite old guys:
I knew it had to be mine. What a beaut.
That's it for now. Stay tuned for more design timelines (Bowman is up next) as well as a post about my collection overhaul. The latter may be boring, but it may also make you super jealous of my awesome new system. Until then.....
