Here are three more cards from my first ever COMC purchase. The first portion of that purchase can be found here. These three pieces of cardboard are of the higher-end variety although they're not really all that high-end.
I love Heritage autos as you can't beat the combination of a vintage look with an on-card signature. When I stumbled upon this I knew I wanted it. I believe I made an offer on the card rather than buying it outright. Either way, $6.50 worth of COMC credit earned from challenges netted me my latest Bison PC pickup.
Another in the category of "I just can't resist" is the above Ruby Auto -- numbered 09/50 -- out of 2010-11 Dominion of my main man Ryan Getzlaf. I adore the inaugural release of Dominion and anything Getzlaf from the product is always a target. This is my 10th Ruby Parallel Auto of The Captain (20% of the print-run just sounds better).
And now for something entirely different: a beautiful VG 1956 Topps Gray Back Johnny Podres. I don't even recall why I was looking at this card the night I nabbed it for three bucks, but I do like Brooklyn cardboard and Podres is a guy every Dodgers' fan needs in his or her collection. It's one of my three favorite Johnny cards I own, along with his 1957 Topps and 1952 Parkhurst Frostade offerings.
