I finally got to 100 cards again on COMC a few weeks ago, and had them sent my way. Something like 70% of the lot was PC needs, but I also grabbed some random stuff that just fits my general collection as I tend to do. So without further adieu, here's the best of that stuff!
The first two cards I'll show off are actually returning to my collection. I had them and sold them on Blowout a while back when I felt like I needed a little extra cash. It's very good to have them back.
Card #1 is the Mike Jones auto from 2000 Finest Moments. It's a beautiful on-card auto, capturing one of the best Super Bowl plays of all time, from one of the best sets of all time. Just check out how sharp this is:
The other returning card was a Jose Cortez NFL Showdown card. It's the only card (other than a custom that Condition: Poor made) that he ever had and it's pretty awesome:
That should be ESPECIALLY easy if I eventually decide to collect the 2002 and 2003 NFL Showdown sets. I grabbed one other card from each set in this lot. Like this Jake Schifino from 2003 Showdown:
The other NFL Showdown card was Nate Wayne from 2002 - I was always a big fan of his play during the early 00's, and actually grabbed a few of his cards:
I really like the Fleer Tradition card I grabbed - it breaks down his stats by yardage, which is kinda cool:
Speaking of autos, I added one other one in this pickup - Fozzy Whitaker. I watched him quite a bit when he was with the Browns. He's in Carolina now and gets decent playing time:
One of my favorite cards from the whole lot is this SWEET three color jersey patch of Shaun King. I found it in my regular style of searching through plain color jerseys until I found an amazing one on the cheap:
No more hits in this post - just some cool rookies and inserts and stuff. I grabbed a few newer Chrome rookie cards that I really like - first Andre Ellington:
I also grabbed a non-chrome RC of Austin Davis - this card was a hot seller a few years back when he first became the Rams QB and it was the only card of his available:
Speaking of Browns backups - Henry Burris never was one in real life, but he is in Madden 2004 on my teams:
And so it goes for the random football cards. In a few days I'll showcase the random baseball and basketball stuff. It's just a few cards (three), but I think it's a fairly epic three so that's cool!
