One of those bargains was a purchase I made back in October off of Gavin over at Baseball Card Breakdown.
He's been cleaning out his CD collection and was offering a USPS medium sized flat rate box filled with baseball cards and CD's. That in itself is a really good deal. But the thing that made this offer a "no brainer" was the 2005 Topps Retired autograph he threw in to sweeten the deal.
There were six different players to choose from and one of them was Bob Welch who helped the Oakland A's reach the World Series three straight seasons from 1988 to 1990. During that stretch, he had a 61-23 record and won the AL Cy Young Award in 1990. He's also the last MLB pitcher to win 25 games in a season.
Sadly Welch passed away back in 2014.
If the huge stack of CD's, hundreds of baseball cards, and the Welch autograph weren't enough... Gavin also threw in a few of his customs that he's become famous for. I've seen the Jacksons on other blogs and was excited to see them thrown into my box.
Thanks Gavin! This was probably the best $20 I've spent this year. I'm not sure if he is still offering this deal, but it doesn't hurt to head over to his blog and ask him yourself... just click here.
And before I forget... thank you to all of you for those get well wishes. It worked! Things started to turn around on Sunday and by yesterday I was able to sit comfortably at my computer, hammer out a few posts, and catch up on some of your posts. It's crazy how quickly they pile up when you're subscribed to over 150 sports card blogs. Hopefully I'll be able to catch up by the end of the week.
Until then... Happy Tuesday and sayonara!
