2015 Topps, Clayton Kershaw
2015 Topps - Highlight of the Year, Nolan Ryan
and 2015 Heritage, Yimi Garcia/Melvin Mercedes.
and I got back...
2012 Panini Prizm, Ozzie Smith. Yet another Ozzie to tick off the list.
and 2015 Gypsy Queen, Bill Mazeroski. Now this is a short print, but I'm not chasing them for the set, Gypsy Queen is dunzo!, corozco just happen to have it and I hard cards he wanted that nobody else was offering anything for. So, yeah. Justification.
Thank you to corozco for a great trade!
Now onto the phantom dunzo...Over the past month, I've spent a good portion of this blog talking about 2012-13 Panini, long story short: I bought a rack pack box off eBay for super cheap, got a lot of great cards, lots of doubles and a Dirk relic. On the base set front I was 299/300 for the set. The card in question that I was missing was #141 Richard Hamilton...
There we have it. 2012-13 Panini is officially dunzo! My first basketball set complete, which is pretty cool for how cheap I got it. $26, the complete set, lots of doubles to trade...Hell, I ran it all down in a previous entry, if you wanna see, head back a few.
Now for a note about this blog...It will be pretty light for the foreseeable future and will probably run based on what trades I can get made. The reason being: video game season is upon us. We've already had major releases like Metal Gear Solid 5 and Forza 6 drop, but in the next few months we also have Fallout 4, Star Wars Battlefront, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Just Cause 3, Halo 5 and WWE 2K16, just to name a few. Most importantly, Rock Band 4 comes out too, which I just dropped a $130 on the pre-order for. So yeah. Things will be tight around here. Maybe another Panini box that is cheap on eBay, maybe. I'm still on the fence with 2015 Topps Update, with the set being expanded to 400 cards, a normal hobby box would mean I would have to make a good amount of trades just to complete it, and a jumbo hobby box is $100, which with all those games coming out is going to be rough.
F*ck. I need to play and win the lottery.
