Trade With Prophet Got It

I've been meaning to do this trade post for about two weeks or more. Jimmy from Prophet Got It... hit me up about my Ike Davis autograph and I was happy to send it his way. He sent back a nice assortment of Reds cards including some newer cards that I haven't bought yet. I've been too busy liquidating my cards to buy the stuff that I want. Here's a scan of my favorites. The chromes are curving up after sitting on my desk so I figured this scan was as good as it's going to get as far as keeping them lined up. Thanks Jimmy! By the way, I really like that Sparky Anderson card. It's a nice card to honor one of the Reds greatest managers who is no longer with us.

Cards obtained from COMC

This is a small sample of the 250 or so cards I have coming my way from I've been acquiring this lot for months now and finally had them shipped during their Thanksgiving sale. Most of the ones i've decided to show are the Gallery of Heroes but I had to show this Vader card which is transparent like the Gallery cards. I can't wait to put that George Foster in aviators into an uncirculated case also.

More Circulated Favorites

It's been over a month since my last post but it doesn't mean I haven't been busy with card stuff. Getting the team lot project wrapped up was a lot more overwhelming than I thought. I've still got one more box to go out to Night Owl which will go out eventually. I've been doing a lot of Ebay business getting rid of stuff I don't want and know will bring a few dollars. I sold a Steve Johnson National Treasures Auto /99 for $60 just prior to the Steelers game which worked out well. I still have a couple of his other autos and now two of his orange refractors. One of which is for sale on Ebay.

I thought I'd give you all something to look at as I've added more cards to my Circulated favorites collection. These are my favorite cards that may or may not be worth anything but I put them into Topps Uncirculated cases once I pop the crappy card out.

The first is a Steve Johnson RC refractor. The second is a cool MJ card showing him dunking with the Sears Tower in the background. Then you have Rowdy Roddy Piper choking out the Junkyard Dog, a Brandon Phillips Beam Team auto card. These Beam Team and Gallery of Heroes stained glass cards are becoming my favorite cards. The last is an Oscar Robertson in a Cincinnati Royals uni. Too bad Cincy doesn't still have an NBA team. How gangster would that team be? Of course the scan doesn't do these cards justice.
