Stamp on card

Before I started back into cards, I tried collecting stamps. It did not last too long.

However, since I stopped collecting stamps, I really got an appreciation for them. When I saw cards that included stamps, had to add a few of them.

So without any delays, here it is!


Cool card for the collection! Really like the card and the nice looking relic.

The only issue in the Beckett slab. I keep most of my player collections in penny sleeves and top loaders in a 2 or 3 row cardboard box. But the slab does not fit. Not going to take the case off, so I guess I will just need to be creative with storing it.

Awesome Palmer relic

I have had this card for a bit and never was able to sit down and plan the post, until now…


I am pretty sure this is only the third Palmer patch card I have. And this patch card blows away most of my other patches. Also I am trying to figure out where this patch came from. I mean where on the uniform was it taken.

My scanner really stinks! This card looks so much better in person.

Picked up this sweet card a while back. But had to share it with you all!

Nice orange relic (O’s relics that are orange equals pure awesomeness) with a well placed sticker autograph. To top things off, it’s pretty rare numbered to only 10 copies!

Hope you are enjoying seeing how my collection is growing.

COMC joy

Everyone has a preferred way of getting cards. For some it could be opening boxes or cases, some could be trades, others maybe eBay. But for me it’s COMC. I do like trading, however since I have stopped buying boxes, I really do not have many cool cards to trade.

Recently, I have found it a great way to pick up partial sets of parallels.

I have been thinking a lot about the ways to spend my limited collecting allowance, and I always seem to end up back on COMC. I really love picking up a $.50 card to create sets of parallel cards from products I could never afford!

So with out any more delay, here are a few of my recent purchases. And the others from this batch will get future posts of their own.

Up first, a partial set of parallel cards from 2011 Topps Triple Threads. Cards numbered out of /1,500 , /625, /249, /99. For all those I spent a whopping $1.77! Which is less than 1% of the cost the hobby box they came from! Not too shabby, if you ask me.

And for the last card of this post, a very shiny 2011 Cognac Diamond Jim Palmer. Really like the look of this card!
