To show you what I won at Cleve's Christmas Auction:
Even with all my preparation, I came away empty handed for the first time ever at a Cleve auction. The stuff was just too rich for my blood, and the fact of the matter is that I am a small timer with this stuff. There were guys there Tuesday night dropping several thousands of dollars. I just can't do that. But, I still enjoyed myself and got to see some really cool pieces. The Turkey Red vintage cards were simply awesome. The Michael Jordan litho was incredible. And the vintage Cracker Jack cards were super cool. It was just all out of my range. There was a Triple Threads 2011 6 PC relic book of HOF pitchers that I made a feeble attempt to buy, but once it got past $30 I chickened out.
Cleve was kind enough to give everyone who attended a nice pack of baseball or football cards. I got a free pack of Allen and Ginter, but didn't hit anything.
So I'm sorry I don't have a more compelling story to tell. I'm hoping to get back on the small-time saddle next week when the standard auctions resume.
