Alright - it's late, so we're gonna do this one quick and dirty....
As always, the non-Griffeys first:
I've wanted this Ted Williams manager card for some time. Finally pulled the trigger.
I bought a whole set of OPC Mets just for the Staubs. The rest are up for grabs....
I was very excited to find Hometown Heroes jumbo packs. Sadly I didn't pull squat on the Griffey front.
I also got a few packs of Update and pulled an auto....
....the same auto I just pulled a few days ago. Ouch, Topps.
Okay, let's get serious:
Here are two 10-card Griffey sets. The one on the left has a gold foil "Charter Member"stamp on every card and a numbered certificate of authenticity. Despite all that, only three bucks.
I already had a bunch of these. I do that a lot.
That one on the bottom right is a sample. It has a blank back and that relic is printed on. Anyone know what the deal is with these?
That Leading Indicators card is heat-sensitive like a mood ring. I'd never seen that on a card, and I didn't know that was the gimmick when I paid for the card. It may be my favorite of the bunch.
I cannot begin to tell you how hard it is to get that Pacific insert into a sleeve.
These were the most expensive non-relic cards I bought, but they're beasts. That Certified Team is like a mirror.
Just a cool numbered relic, but what does the M stand for?
A Mariners relic on a Reds card. Had to have it.
And this one has a sliver of dirty ball embedded in it. Another great show, and a nice talk with my Griffey guy.
