Thankfully, my losing streak came to a halt this week with some solid auction wins, starting with a fantastic 1997 Bowman set, already in a binder:
R.A. Dickey- although the value of this has dropped this year I think. For a while it was a pretty hot card.
And my favorite: Adrian Beltre
There are several other good rookies to show (Halladay for one), but I'll move on to my other wins. Like this:
The Puig was the only single card I picked up this week. Besides it and the 97 set, I picked up my first goodie box in a long time:
Among the rest of the some 200 cards were some decent player lots:
These were the lots of players I happen to like, but there were also around a dozen cards each of Clemens, Garciapara, A-Rod and Bagwell.
1997 Bowman Set in binder: $6 A : This set has a ton of great rookie and base cards. It came complete in a nice, neat binder ready for the bookshelf.
A&G Puig Rookie $4 B : I have little interest in Puig, but I figure I'm not going to get this card any cheaper. At least until a couple of months from now. Crud, I should have waited on this one. Oh well.
Goodie Box $7 A+: The cabinet cards are cool, and there is enough good stuff to spread around to my binders, listia and trade packages (most everything is available for trade).
I'm not totally back alive and kicking yet in this hobby, but Tuesday's auction helped get some momentum back!
