Awesome Mailday from Michael

Hey everyone, yes I know that I haven't posted in what seems like forever. I tell you what, school has been killing me lately with all these assignments and stuff, I just don't ever feel like get around to post after school and just want some free time to myself.

 It's snowed something like 4-5 inches today so I didn't have any school today and I happened to get a package in the mail so I thought it would be a perfect time for to do a post. I was really happy with how all of these cards scanned.

First card in the package was is this really nice looking 2014 Bowman Sterling auto of Stephen Piscotty. I really love the looks of the 2014 Sterling, I thought that last years design I thought was dumb.

 Piscotty was a 1st round pick in 2012 and was 36th overall. Piscotty should end up make his MLB debut some time this year because he has been doing real well in the minors. Last year in AAA Picsotty hit a .288 AVG, 69 RBI and 32 Doubles I would say that was a very successful year for him.

Next I got this Jack Flaherty auto who was a 1st round pick in 2014 and was 34th overall. It will be very interesting to see where this kid ends up for the 2015 season. He only played 8 games last season in the rookie league with six starts with a 1.59 ERA. I think that he will make it as far as AA or AAA. I pretty excited to see what will happen. 

Last card that I got was this Luke Weaver who was also a 1st round draft pick in 2014 and was 27th overall. Weaver only played and started 6 games for the 2014 season going from rookie level to single A and didn't start off to well start with an overall 7.71 ERA. I think that he will end up doing just fine during the 2015 season.


Thanks Michael for the awesome cards!

Huge Pickup From William

I got a nice little box in the mail today from William, some being pickups for my PC's with some Cardinals cards as well. One card that Will threw in for free was this 1956 Topps Luis Arroyo, Luis only played one season with the Cardinals in 1955 (his RC season). This was a pretty nice throw in for my vintage Cardinals that I have pilling up.

One card that Will had available was this 2011 Topps leather nameplate of Stan Musial. I don't have to many cards of Stan so this was a real nice addition. I know that a lot of people don't really like these, but I think that they are pretty cool looking.

William had several Pujols that I was able to take off his hands, one being this 2007 Upper Deck Masterpieces relic. Man, I really love masterpieces I just wish that these where still out because I would buy, but that will never happen with Upped Deck probably never coming back.

William got this card recently in one of his jumbo boxes that I watched his open. This is the 2015 Topps MLB logo pin manufactured card of Albert. I'm not really sure if I like these or not. I liked the pin card from 2012 because these don't have much design to them.

Last big card that I got in my pickup was this 2011 Topps Leather Nameplate black #D/99. This is a pretty awesome addition to my Albert PC.

Thanks William for the great deal on all these cards!

Fantastic Cards from Fantasticcatch

Hello everyone, Andrew here. I was at my friend Weston's house Friday and Saturday. When I was there Weston was kind enough to give me some cards for my player PC's, and about 3 or 4 cards that I needed for my bowman prospects. 

The shown above card is a 2010 Topps Pro Debut of Paul Goldschmidt. I'm glade that Weston included this card for me because it's always nice to add a card to your PC, especially when it's of of their pre-rookie cards. 

One other card that I got while I was there was this really cool looking 2013 Topps Opening Day Ballpark Fun of Aroldis Chapman. This is a very interesting looking card I read the back of the card and this is Aroldis Chapman celebrating a save.

Instagram Trade, Eh. Trade From Canada

Hello everyone, Andrew here. I completed a trade off Instagram the other day after a guy on there contacted me about a Paul Goldschmidt auto that he had for trade, so I went right ahead and contacted him back and I worked out nice fast deal with him and was able to get the shown above 2014 Topps Tribute Tribute Traditions Paul Goldschmidt auto /99.

I really love the design of this card, it really makes the auto pop out off the card. I'm not sure what's up with the random old picture under his auto is all about, but I guess it looks cool. I think that I'm starting to like this trading thing on Instagram a lot more. I have not have had any problems of there and most of the people on there are great and easy to deal with. I recommend you guy to try it out.

2014 Topps Supreme Paul Goldschmidt Jumbo Relic auto


Hello everybody, Andrew here. If you didn't know yet I recently decided to start a new player PC of Paul Goldschmidt, one reason being because all of my other PC's already so big that they are getting to a point where i'm not finding  much of their base, relics, and auto's for reasonable prices anymore, another reason is that Paul Goldschmidt is a great player is lot of time overlooked or underrated. I'm mean look at his 3 year career stats. .292/.381/.523

OK, back on to the card that I got. This will be my last post from my Comc package, OK so this is  2014 Topps Supreme Jumbo Relic auto #D /40. This is the first year that Supreme had been released to US where last year it was a Asia exclusive as a test to see how well it would sell well enough to be released to the US, as you may have guess it did well. This is a great looking card and is defiantly a great start to a new PC!

"The Finest Card Around"- 2013 Topps Finest Trevor Rosenthal auto relic

Hello everyone, Andrew here, here is another card that I picked off Comc for myself for the collection. The shown card is a 2013 Topps Finest Trevor Rosenthal emerald auto relic #D /125. This card is pretty sweet looking. I'v been wanting a Trevor Rosenthal auto for some time now and was able to happened apron this card for only $8. In my mind that is a really good price for the player and quality of this card.

I really like the looks of Finest, when it first came out I didn't really think that I was going to like it at all but I guess that I like the set more when I actually get to see it for myself rather than just seeing it on the screen because it just doesn't show the true beauty of the card.

Two New Bowman Chrome Auto's For The Sets

Hello everyone, Andrew here. I'm back today with you guys to show you part of what I got in the mail today from my COMC package. For you who don't know i'm trying to put together somewhat of a master set from 2013 and 2014 Bowman. So for right now I'm trying to get all the auto's I can (chrome and retail). 

The first pickup that I was able to get for myself if the shown above 2013 Bowman Chrome auto Ronny Rodiguez, surprising this is my first chrome auto for 2013, probably because I had already picked up 8 of the retail autos. I was able to pick this one up for $1.40 or something like that, there were cheaper ones but I was just trying to spend the last little bit of money that I had left.

Last card that I picked up was this 2014 Bowman chrome auto Austin Nola. This is my 3rd chrome auto for 2014 and I already have 4 of the retail autos. I think I paid around $1.30 for this and could have picked a different one for less than a $1 but I saw how pretty this guy's auto looked and I knew I had to get it, the auto on the one they had for less than a $1 wouldn't have even come close to comparison to this one, I mean this is a real auto and not scribbles.

Instagram Trade Lance Lynn Auto Relic



Hey everyone I did a trade with a really nice guy. I traded him some random assorted parallels of star players and in return I got the shown above 2013 Topps Triple Threads Lance Lynn Emerald #D/50.

This is a great looking card I use to have the one out #D/75 but gave it to a friend, I also use to have a Matt Adams but recently got rid of it more some money to buy some PC cards.

I really liked 2013 Triple Threads and not so much for 2014. They 2014 parallels really sucked they barely had any color on the cards, not much of a parallel to me.

Trade With William From Foulbunt

Hello everyone I completed a trade with my good friend William from the blog foulbunt. We usually just send packages back and forth but this was a rare occasion where we actually did trade. I end up trading him a $15 iTunes card that I had laying around that I was never going to use and I also bought a card off him.

Fist up, the card that I traded for was the shown above 2009 Topps 206 Albert Pujols framed relic. Man I love all framed relics and auto's they just looks so nice. I have gotten a couple in the last few days such as the Rizzo auto and the Jay relic.

The card that I ended up buying off him was this 2014 Bowman Chrome auto of Javier Bethancourt for a coupe of dollars. 

I don't think that I have told you guys yet that I am trying to do a partial 2014 and 2013 Bowman Master set which for me will included trying to get all of the Chrome and Retail autos, internationals, and the top 100 prospect cards. I may try to do more, but for right now I'm going to try to get thous things done with first, and that is going be a really fun but hard challenge yet.
