Here's my latest purchase:
1982 Topps #781
My two prerequisites are:
#1: They're affordable.
#2: I like the look of the card.
This PSA/DNA slabbed autograph set me back $19.09 (+ $3.78 shipping), which seems like a fair price for the signature of MLB's All-Time Hit King. As for the card itself, I'm a fan of the 1982 Topps card design and anyone who knows me, knows how much I appreciate a well-cropped action shot.
So I'm okay with people not liking Pete. I've accepted that he's just one of my hobby's guilty pleasures.
What about you...
Do you have any hobby related guilty pleasures?
Speaking of "guilt"... I instantly felt guilty after recently receiving a package from Mr. Miller over at Johnny's Trading Spot. Inside he hooked me up with one of the mascot cards I've been looking for:
2011 Topps Opening Day Mascots #M-16
He also included this Swinging Friar sticker:
2016 Topps Stickers #265
Plus a bunch of other 2016 Topps Stickers:
This cool Rick Monday...
1969 Topps Deckle Edge #14
And a few other nice cards for my A's PC:
Why would I feel guilty about receiving such a cool care package from Johnny? Well... he won a contest on my blog back in February and I never shipped out his prize package... until today. In addition to his prize package, I also shipped out Wrigley Wax and Royals and Random's prize packages as well. Don't worry SumoMenkoMan... I haven't forgotten about yours. I'm still trying put together something special for you, since I owe you a couple of care packages as well.
Well that's it for today. I apologize for the delay gentleman. Hopefully you're all understanding and are able to use the cards I sent your way.
Happy Saturday and sayonara!
