On The First Day of Brycemas..

 (sing this along with the 12 Days of Christmas melody)

My Harper gave to me..

The Thickest Card I've Ever Seen... 
So, the moment I saw funds show up in paypal from my Harper sale, I looked at my eBay watch list for something to buy.  This Michael Young card from 2007 UD Exquisite had been sitting there for a while as a BIN in my list.  I didn't know anything about Exquisite which is why I hadn't pulled the trigger.  It's not that it was that expensive (around $3.50 or so) especially for a card numbered to #75, but I figured that was more than I wanted to spend on it without seeing one up close.  But since I had some new found spending flexibility, I thought, "Why not" and picked it up.  It was officially the first card I bought for Brycemas, and I am so glad I got it. 

This card is fareeeking awesome!  It is the thickest card I've ever seen.  I mean, look at the scan- it casts a &*!%ing shadow!  I immediately started looking for other cards from this set I might want and bought a Torii Hunter relatively cheaply.

So, while this wasn't the biggest or best purchase from my ongoing shopping spree, it definitely is a card I am proud of.

Enjoy the shopping spree. Looks like a sweet card that you started out with.

Yeah, I love that set. Thickness of the cards should make them stand the tests of time better.
