Card Shop Pickup

I went to the card shop today. A guy in there had just opened a box of 2010 Topps Tribute before I walked in. He had pulled a Heyward auto, Gooden auto, and a Maris jersey among other things. He then bought another box. He got Strawberry auto, a Johnny Bench Buyback numbered to 10, and a Matt Kemp redemption. The pack with the Bench Buyback had another relic card in it, so he got 7 hits out of that box.

I was tempted to open a pack of tribute, but at $55 a pack I just couldn't do it. Instead, I picked up this bat card for $10. Waner was the 1927 NL MVP and is a member of the 3000 hit club. Not too bad for a Hall of Famer who hasn't played since 1945.

  1. That's a beautiful card! Big Poison! I've seen a few of those online and they look like interesting cards.

  2. That is a great looking card. I wasn't collecting in 2003, I came back in 04 and 05. I keep seeing that I missed some great stuff.

  3. One of my favorite relic sets of all time. Nice card.
