Earlier in the week, I shot my mouth off pretty good about actually attending a Tuesday night auction at Cleve's rather than just writing in bids and hoping for the best. I fully intended to go Tuesday night, but was foiled again by work duties and had to miss out on the action. I thought there might be a chance of that happening, so I went put in some write in bids on a few items ahead of time.
Other than losing out on a fantastic 1955 Topps Phil Rizzuto, I got most of what I wanted:
Five Star card to my collection. There's a line of stitching that curves across the card that's gives it some uniqueness too.
Cliff Lee 5 Star Jumbo Patch $8: B+ It was kind of expensive, but I'm a big fan of Lee and it's a super premium product, so I'm happy to have it.
Alfonso Soriano Auto $4: A This is a great addition to my skimpy autograph collection. Great value.
Granderson/Thome Relics $2: A+ I would have been thrilled with just the Granderson for $2. Getting the Thome was a nice surprise.
Bryce Harper Bowman Lot $10: B I needed the insert cards, and there not any cheaper anywhere else, so what the heck. If he takes off this year like everyone is predicting, that $10 will look a lot better.
