I really want to go to card show, but the closest one today would require me to spend three hours in a car and it usually only has about a dozen dealers. A week from today is the annual P-town card show and I know it's better to just wait another seven looooooong days. Sigh.
To pass the time and feed the collecting monster within I bought a jumbo of Topps Update. No Cubs were found and I'm not sure how that's possible with as many Kris Bryant cards that are in 2015 Update. Bummer.
If you're interested in any of the cards just leave a comment. I'm not going to post pictures of them all, but I'll list the ones I don't show pictures of at the bottom. The Sox, both the White and Red, have already been claimed.
Let's start off with two of the three cards from the pack that I'll be keeping.
The Marlins don't get much love on the blogosphere, but Justin Bour player for the Peoria Chiefs! Woo-Hoo! Some P-town love!
Carlos Correa? He's one heckuva talented ball player. That is all.
My gold parallel could have been a better player, but they do look sharp in person.
I was happy to pull a Hammerin' Hank, but even happier to land the Josh Gibson card. This is the last of the three cards which will stay in my collection.
I like the Whatever Works insert set and I thought about chasing it, but ultimately I have decided against it.
Lastly, I landed one of the three hits from the Jumbo box. It's one of the Etched in History cards and it is a very thick card, because it contains one of those crazy manu-relics.
