Mail while we wait

A&G is delayed. Boo! But, now I get to pass time with the ever-growing PC and check out a few other things.

I know readers will be shocked, but I did in fact give in to Bowman Inception, and I was impressed! I only bought one box, and I liked it a lot. I really wanted a Puig redemption, but this wasn’t bad.

InceptionEvery one of these sold on eBay. The Machado was gone within a few hours, and I thought it was odd, but the Joseph relic/auto was the last to go. I kept thinking, “Am I really ‘stuck’ with a patch auto? I’ll take that!” I ended up almost breaking even on the price of the box, and a guy can’t complain about that. The cost was worth it, and I’ll be on this product big time next year.

Of course, most of the money acquired went right back to other eBay sellers, so here’s a gallery of my recent wins. I’ve still got some cool ones, serial numbered/autos/etc. somewhere in the care of the USPS. When I get to 50 Marte’s, I’ll post them all up to celebrate. I did finally get the dang Topps base card! Also not pictured, factory sets of Pacific’s Texas Express Nolan Ryan Series I and II. They were too inexpensive not to have, even though I had a good number of them from packs.

I get to start school in 2 weeks, and have Cub Scout camp with one of the boys next week, so unless I find something fun to post up, I’ll see you after Ginter!
