Newest Additions

Posted: May 13, 2010 in Baltimore Orioles, Baseball, Blog

As most bloggers have pointed out, it is kind of a dull time in the hobby, so I have slowly been adding to my player collections instead of buying much of any new product. In my opinion, nothing has grabbed my attention. I have picked up a few random packs a while back, and was pretty disappointed in the results. After a simple cost and benefit analysis, I found that while opening cards is a lot of fun, it is not a cost effective way to add to my collection. However, I do have a few boxes of 2010 Ginter pre-ordered! I can’t wait… only like a month or so left.

Anyways, here are the newest additions into my collection:

First are a couple of nice Palmer relics. I really like both of these cards!

Old gray relics rule! Not to mention, the top Brooks is numbered 99/99, in ebay terms thats a 1/1. HA HA HA.

The best card that was added was from the 2009 Goodwin Champions….

A 2009 Goodwin Champions #86 mini Cyan Printing Plate. As I stated before, printing plates are pretty cool to add to my collection. I have two others, both of Jim Palmer. If you are interested, check them out in my Picasa photo album. I have been trying to keep all the collection highlights (Autos, Relics, Manufactured Patchs, and Printing Plates) showcased in the photo album.

    That Brooks plate is awesome. The card that plate printed is also awesome. It might be my favorite modern Brooks card.

    Ripping packs is fun, but I’m definitely more fulfilled when I just grab singles I like. I wouldn’t mind getting a hold of a printing plate sometime myself, but I’ll almost for sure never pull one from a pack.
