I think it was my biggest order ever, with 100 cards on the nose. I feel like a dummy for not knowing sooner about the $5 future credit per 100 cards shipped in a month. My patience usually runs out at about 60-80 cards before I pull the trigger on a shipment, but I'll have to remember hold out for a hundred when I can.
I got myself a couple autos this time around, with Ozzie Albies being the priciest card in the package. Kind of an impulse buy, as he's not really a guy I collect as of yet, but seems like an exciting young player to watch, and I wanted to snag a nice card of his for my collection. (And the pickup was partially because I once pulled an Inception auto of his a couple years back that I ended up trading to Bubba, and I didn't want to regret that deal too much if/when he becomes a perennial all-star, so this was essentially replacing the auto I pulled.) This one is from 2016 Bowman's Best. Love the giant, on-card auto, even if perhaps the Sharpie was starting to run dry.
I also wanted to score a hit of T.J. Leaf, a kid from my hometown.. as far as I know, the only guy from El Cajon to ever play in the NBA. This 2017-18 Panini Court Kings Fresh Paint auto called to me with a nice on-card signature and a /200 serial number on the back.
So just a short post for today, but I'll have most posts from this haul soon, including lots of set needs (emphasis on 1957), some fun glowing cards, an attractive harem of girlie cards, and other neat miscellany.
