Even though I gave up purchasing cards for lent, thankfully, I had ordered enough product online before this ridiculous promise went into place. I would like to pat myself on the back for being so disciplined so far. I did put in a couple of low-ball bids for some items on eBay that I don’t expect to get, but if I do, I will have to fess up about breaking my vow. Placing a bid doesn’t count does it? Here are some of the goodies I got last week:
I don’t know how I managed to get that Pujols SPX card, #’d to 50 by the way! No way did I think I would win that auction, but I am thrilled I did. I am very slowly trying to complete this wonderful set, and that one was one I assumed I would have trouble getting. I’m also thrilled with the 2 Sterling Base cards, as I am now about 75% through building this set. I’ve listed the cards I am still lacking at the top of my blog. I will post the few doubles I have for trade if anyone is interested in trading.
This was a small lot from http://www.sportsbuy.com/ It knocked out a little from my monster checklist, including a nice 2003 DK auto of Joe Borchard. I picked up a couple of cheapies of two of my favorite Rangers as well.
