Well Well Well...I Finally Have a Moment

Sorry for the incoherent rambling in advance didn't have much time an the mind was allover the place. 

Just a short quick post today/tonight with hopes of some more posting and updates this weekend. I've been crazy busy at work and not home as much as I would like so that is what's really putting a damper on my posts. Plus I haven't seen any 15 series one retail when I've been running some errands. I will be trying to pickup a few of the base autos being there's some Mets autos I would like to have and the design is actually appealing this year. 

So I received a package from wes over at jaybarkers that I have yet to open, but will definitely show off what he sent.  I claimed some Giants NFL cards that he posted about thinning his NFL collection. I also busted 2 boxes of 14 prizm and a box of 14 bowman chrome this past Friday. More on those in a later post. 

Well we are now least than 3 weeks away from pitchers and catchers reporting for spring training. So we are inching closer to americas game and some Mets players have already been working out in Port Saint Lucie.

What's a post without some cards. Here is a Wheeler auto from high Tek numbered to 50 that I picked up a few weeks ago. You can see the different design in the holograms on the rear of the card better than the front. There is name for each diffractor design but it escapes me as of the moment. I may try to chase the diffractor for wheeler but that just depends on some other things and if I can get a decent deal on the lower numbered cards. 

Hopefully your still reading and I guess this post is a little longer than I expected it to be. Let's show off another card that I picked probably a month or so ago. It's actually the first auto card that I've had of this player and its a graded card too but that doesn't matter. The card I picked up is of The Franchise himself or some people may know him better as Tom Terrific. Yes I picked up the auto below of a Tom Seaver archives reprint. It's PSA/DNA graded 8 as NM-MT if memory is correct

    1. Thanks hopefully he can keep his walks down that lead to a bad inning off of a hit or 2.

  2. Now you need to find a 9.5 graded Seaver rookie. Go big or go home.
