2011 Topps

Got some packs today - first thing I noticed is Gaby Sanchez has 2 cards : #59 and #312 - the one numbered 59 has the 'All Star Rookie' cup on it!

Back soon...

Wow I didn't realise it had been so long since I posted here!

An update on some new cards would be good.

In the last 3 weeks, I've picked up :

1999 Fleer Tradition Update Factory Set
1997 Pinnacle Certified set
1997 Bowman Set
1993 Topps Traded Factory Set
1991 Donruss Rookies Factory Set
1991 Score Rookies Factory Set
1989 Donruss Best Factory Set
1989 Donruss Rookies Factory Set
1988 Donruss Best Factory Set
1987 Donruss Opening Day Factory Set
1987 Donruss Rookies Factory Set
1986 Donruss Highlights Factory Set (I HAD to have Steve Carlton in a Giants Uni)
1985 Topps Traded Factory Set
1981 Topps Traded Factory Set


I also picked up a bucket load of Topps and Bowman cards from 1954 thru 1969. There's about 200 of them all up, and it cost less than $100.


All of the above sets/lots have arrived, with the exception of the 1988 Donruss Best set. That's the set known as the Halloween set, and it's probably the most exciting of all my acquisitions. Unfortunately, I didn't get either of the Barry Bonds/Johnny Ray errors from the 1987 Opening Day and 1989 Best sets. Oh well... at least they were complete, sealed Factory Sets!

Time to go searching for some more sets...

Happy collecting and bust some wax for me!
