I recently won a box of 2012 Topps Archives from Topps through a contest on Facebook. The box arrived today. You can watch the video or just check out the hits, or should I say hit. The Von Hayes card is missing the autograph. The box was free, but it still stinks that there was only one autograph. Any thoughts on what I should do?
I picked up this 2012 Topps Mini Ryan Roberts Platinum numbered to 5 on eBay recently. I spent more than I would have liked to, but with only 5 out there I wanted to make sure that I got one. Thankfully, I have the Gold parallel numbered to 61 coming in shortly as part of a trade.
I picked up this 2012 Topps FInest Ian Kennedy Red Refractor numbered to 25 recently and got it in the mail today. The red background goes perfect with the Diamondbacks uniforms. I'd love to get a team set if I had the funds. This card only cost me $3.04 shipped, so maybe I've got a chance.
Scott, from the blog Sports Card Ate My Brain, had posted some Diamondbacks trade bait on his blog a few weeks back and I contacted him about a trade. He sent me the three cards that I had asked about plus a bunch of extra shiney cards! Take a look at what he sent. Thanks Scott!
First up, the extras.
Next are the three cards that I had asked for.
2005 Leaf Josh Kroger Auto - Kroger gave me his bat one year during Spring Training, so I've wanted his auto for a while.
2003 SP Authentic Brandon Webb Rookie Card - I needed this one for my Webb collection.
2005 Topps All-Star Stitches Luis Gonzalez Jersey Card - I love game/event specific relic cards, so I was really excited to add this Gonzo card to my collection.
