1954 Bowman Ed Mathews

I made a last minute trip to my LCS last Saturday for the 3 o'clock auction and boy was I glad I did. Even getting there about 10 minutes late I still walked away with 4 items from the auction, for less than $8. There were only 4 other bidders. usually there are at least 10.

This 1954 Bowman Eddie Mathews set me back $3.

I know it's in rough shape, really rough shape, but I still love it and for the price, I couldn't say no.

Let me know what you think of my $3 purchase.

I'm also curious to get your thoughts on Eddie Mathews. I feel like he doesn't get a lot of hobby love. Just curious as to your thoughts why or if you think he gets the hobby love that he deserves.

Road Trip with my Wallet Card

On July 1st my family and I embarked on a 3700 mile, 9 day, 7 state, 5 National Park road trip.

My wallet card made the journey with me and made several appearances.

Arches National Park in Utah.

Dinosaur National Park in Utah.

Buffalo Bill Center of the West Museum in Cody, Wyoming in front of a Bald Eagle.

Old Faithful in Yellowstone National Park.

Crazy Horse Memorial in South Dakota.

There were some 1930's trading cards at the Crazy Horse visitor's center.

Mount Rushmore.

Berlin Wall memorial in Rapid City, South Dakota.

I thought this sign was fitting for my Brandon Webb, Diamondbacks cards. 

Chimney Rock in Nebraska.

Coors Field. Rockies vs. White Sox.
