And I listened, and I nodded and agreed to be better. But on the inside, I felt like this:
I dare you to find a better video.
Why was I so stoked tonight? Well because I got some dang cool cards! Let's start with this:
This is my first 1951 Topps Red Back card. I've always wanted one but have never pulled the trigger. The fact that Roe was Brooklyn Dodger, as well as an Arkansan made it even more special to me. I know 1951 Topps aren't that hard to come by, but this one is in pristine shape, with no creases or tears, and it has great color.
I also picked up two bonus cards that I snagged on the cheap:
If I can get a Tom Brady Jersey card for $4, don't I have to do it? The jersey is nice and dirty too!
I also picked up two other cards that I will post about tomorrow.
Here are the grades:
1951 Topps Preacher Roe $15 B+: This is about what I would pay online for one of these in just ok shape. A little expensive I guess, but shouldn't every collector have at least one '51?
Panini Threads Seau/Merriman $3 B: I'll get more enjoyment giving this to a kid who will like it than keeping it for myself.
Tom Brady Topps Pro Bowl Jersey $4.00 A- : Now I have a Brady jersey.
