A Free David Wright Gypsy Queen Relic!

I recently won a contest from the legendary Sports Card Info.

A sweet David Wright to add to my Wright PC. Thanks Andrew!

2013-2014 Panini National Treasures Icy Inscriptions: A John Gibson RC Auto!

I continue to work on building a John Gibson PC that rivals some of my secondary collections. Now is as good a time as any to acquire his cardboard for reasonable prices as he continues to play the role of backup in the Anaheim crease.

I was recently able to snag the above signature out of 2013-2014 Panini National Treasures Hockey. It hails from the Icy Inscriptions subset and ran me just $6.31 shipped. The card scanned in exceptionally poorly but it's a beaut in-hand.

1911 T205 (Polar Bear Back): Zack Wheat

I'm really falling in love with tracking down awesomely amazing Zack Wheat cardboard. It hits so many of my collecting interests: Dodgers, vintage, and pre-war vintage in-particular. My latest acquisition is the below slabbed T205 of the Hall of Fame Brooklyn outfielder.

Graded an SGC 30 this Polar Bear-backed beaut comes from 1911 and is a stunning work of art in this guy's eyes. The Brooklyn B is prominently featured in this portrait of Mr. Wheat, and the price was just right for me to take the plunge. There's a fairly large crease running through the U in Superbas that I didn't notice in the auction's scan; it may have dissuaded me had I had a clearer view of it. In the end though I'm just happy to have another pre-war Wheat to treasure.

TECHNICALLY a Dodgers' Card

Zach's at it once again, sending me an awesomely awesome PWE just because he's a swell guy. I'm starting to realize these Bench Warmers could grow on me.

After dispatching a few Ducks The Underdog sent me a Dodgers' clad young lady.

2013-2014 Panini Crown Royale Silhouette Auto-Patch /25: Ryan Getzlaf

Silhouettes from Panini Crown Royale are some of my favorite higher-end Ryan Getzlaf hits, and I've made it a point to chase them in the past. Here's my third, this time hailing from 2013-2014.

Numbered 03/25, it ran me $13.50 shipped.
