I'm pretty, make that very, happy with my haul from Cleve's this week. I didn't get the 1972 Brooks Robinson that I wanted, but picked up a nice variety of three solid cards:
This 1962 Marichal is a great add to my sample album. I've got 4 very good cards, and the page doesn't look so skimpy anymore.
Then I went all Ramirez:
Yes, he's a steroid fueled lunatic, but this is a really cool card. I have a decent amount of relic cards, but hardly any with cool patches, so this is a nece add.
I'm very happy with this Aramis Ramirez auto/relic. He's under the radar as far as I'm concerned, but is within striking distance of 400 home runs in a few years, and will have a nice career compiled when all is said and done.
Finally, I won a little lot of Gypsy Queen minis. I guess I'm building the set since I've got about 40% of the cards now.
1962 Marichal $3- A : An early card of a HOF pitcher for $3?? Easy A.
Manny Ramirez Fleer Nameplate Patch $4- A: He's not going to the HOF, but people will talk about this character for a long time.
Aramis Ramirez Auto/Relic $3 A+ : This is a superb auto at that price. I'm shocked I got it.
Gypsy Queen Minis $2 B+ : Other than two of my favorites in Kinsler and Beltre, no big names, but getting these for about $.16 each is not too bad.
