A Brian Cashman certified autograph – I know he’s had releases in both Topps and Upper Deck products. Ideally, I’d like to get one of his A&G autos, just because the other products I’ve seen are selling for pornographic amounts. If anybody has one, or knows where I can find a reasonably priced one, let me know and I may even be able to hook you up with a finders fee.
I haven’t posted worth a damn lately, for a couple of reasons. The first – although I moved over a month ago, I still haven’t set up my “office” (which is a huge storage closet where we put my computer desk) yet. Basically my only internet access is at my office, and when I’m there, they usually make me work.
The other reason is that I’ve hit a bit of a collecting wall, in that I don’t know quite what I want to collect any more. I’m saving money for both a ring AND hopefully a down payment on a house next spring, and cards don’t seem to be quite the priority at the moment, so I’ve decided to put a halt on buying hardly any wax, except for the Goodwin Champions set. I’m only three cards away from the 09 A&G set, so I’m probably done buying that, and maybe about 30 cards from the 07 A&G. I really want to buy a box of 2006, but am having a really difficult time swallowing the $200+ price tag.
Aside from sets, I’ll obviously still be collecting Andy Pettitte. I’m also getting a little more serious about my Chad Greenway collection, as well. Aside from that, I’ll probably actively keep building on my Jeter, Rivera and Joba collections, as well as adding the occasional auto as well, like the previously mentioned Cashman and hopefully a Joe Torre as well.
Finally, I busted a box of 07 A&G for something different, and pulled three hits from a box that promises only two. I’m not one to get worked up too much about g/u stuff, which is a good thing because the first one was a Rich Harden. In the pack following Harden, I pulled a Joe Frazier relic, which I thought was pretty damn cool too. Then I pulled my third hit from the box: an SP auto of Jason McElwain – the autistic kid who couldn’t stop making three-pointers a few years back. I think the quantities were limited to 200, and as cool a card as it is, it is definitely up for trade if somebody has the Yankee auto(s) to pull it off. Perhaps, a Cashman?
OK, hopefully it’s not another two weeks before I post again. Be good, people.
