Just a few cards, but pretty nice ones


Cespedes Finest RC


This is an "after market 1 of 1" with COA. It was pretty cheap and a nice add for the PC


Nice Rookie card of one the Rockies top prospects Gold Variation numbered to 50

So, I have not done a lot since the TCZ went off the, but I have picked up a few nice cards. So here is a recap:

Picked up a box of OBAK baseball, obviously not a top end product but some decent hits. Going old school with a Ken Landreaux auto #/25 and a prospect for Detroit Scott Sizemore auto #/50


A nice PC add with a Zack Cozart rookie auto from Topps Chrome


A couple of very hot prospect autos


And one that I am sure that at least 1 person on here will find to be very nice


That is it for now, if I run across anything else that I picked up I will post later.

Sweet Autos.
When I first saw Obak cards on a blog 2 years ago? I thought they were someone's cheep custom jobbers (the blogger who I saw them on I think does from time to time make their own custom cards) and absolutely hated them. After seeing several others and the 2nd and 3rd years of them, I don't hate them as much, but I don't really like them that much. Now they remind me of the retro T-206 or Goodwin Champions.

Yeah, I not a huge fan of them but they have some pretty cool throw back autos and a few top prospects. They look cheap overall but I have pulled a Brooks Robinson Auto before so I keep finding myself trying them when I can get them cheap.

That Zimmerman is a nice one. Don't know much about baseball, so maybe the others are better, but I have at least heard of Zimmerman so I just assume he's a pretty good ball player. :LOL:

Thanks Mike, the Zimmerman is curently the best of these cards. But I love the Bowman Platinum Prospects because they are on card autos and the Walker is pretty hot right now, I think he is the #5 prospect in all of baseball and he will be in the Majors this year.

This week's mail has been mainly about some PC items.

First, from the local minor league team that i follow:

Nice refractor auto #/500. He is quickly moving up the prospect list for the Rays


Jeff Malm, not a top prospect, but I love clean look of these cards and I got to meet him while playing in town.

An add for my Kentucky Wildcat PC


Then, of course, there has to be some Reds PC

Actually got 20 of these in a case break, he was the Reds #1 draft pick last year.


Big Red Machine adds are always great for me

Now for today's mail. I got in a division break for Topps Supreme (which is way too expensive). The base are numbered to 465 and a picked up a Matt Ryan and a Nick Toon :rolleyes:. But I also picked up a decent Rookie base of Luke Kuechly:



and a pretty nice hit with a Jimmy Graham Jersey/ auto numbered to 51.
