So I used to collect Fred McGriff cards. It seems like forever ago now, but before I decided 2300+ cards was way too many for my hoarding tendancies, I collect the Crime Dog. One of the best parts of that collection was the Ebay lot - you know what I mean, that guy who, instead of selling his cards individually, groups them into some random lot based on the player or team or set or whatever. Some of the cards you need, some of the cards you don't, and the end decision on whether or not you buy that lot solely depends on how many you actually need. I bought a ton of these lots with Fred McGriff, I bought a few with Seneca Wallace in my early days, and I really haven't had a chance to buy any since. Which is sad, because I love these lots!
Well lucky for me, a Shyrone Stith 8 card lot popped up on Ebay recently! I thought I needed 6 of the 8 cards, but once I scanned the cards I realized I actually had 3 of them so I only actually needed 5. The price, however, was still, as they say, right. So I'm glad I pulled the trigger, as these five cards likely would've set me back quite a bit more were they not all sold as one lot!
The first card is Stith's Sage Red autograph, /999. I know Sage gets a lot of crap for their sticker autos and college uniforms, but for my money their color autographs are always one of my favorite sets to collect, and that's no different with Stith:
There was a third hit in the lot too - my first jersey card of Shyrone Stith, his Pacific Invincible Red /750:
Next we have...purple:
Gotta move on from that card...time for a SWEET LEAF CERTIFIED DIE CUT!
Man, how good is that? I've said it before and I'll say it again, I freaking loved Leaf Certified back in the day, and I wish it was still around in its Leaf version. And this is the base version! It's /1000 and it's a very nifty die cut. It also needs rescanned someday, as I got some cat hair on this one lol.
The final card looks cool but is even better in person...it's a Collector's Edge "EG" card:
