Earlier this month I wrote about how I made my first purchase from COMC. As they began their transition into their new catalog, they offered $1 in COMC cash for every 1,000 points earned helping inventory their stock.
They recently reinstated their challenges and needless to say, I took full advantage of it. I was able to raise enough cash to fund my third purchase from COMC.
Once again, I was able to use rest of the COMC cash that was burning a hole in my pocket to fulfill my San Diego Padres urges.
While looking among the many Padres cards within the COMC catalog, I was able to find some rather colorful cardboard, to include this 2008 Topps Replica Jerseys Jake Peavy S/N 134/499, 2014 Topps Red Foil Nick Hundley and a pair of 2013 Bowman Draft Draft Picks Hunter Renfroes, one Blue S/N 104/500, the other a Silver Ice card.
I've always been a fan of the Topps Museum Collection, but it always seems the packs were a tad too expensive for my tastes. I was able to pick up this 2013 Topps Museum Collection Copper Chase Headley S/N 110/424 and a 2011 Topps Heritage Minors Red Tint Jason Hagerty S/N 330/620 and a pair of 2008 Topps Moments and Milestones Black 32 Trevor Hoffman, Career Save 1, S/N 5/25 and Career Save 14, S/N 4/25. Each card represents a save in Hoffman's 601-save career. In my last purchase, I found saves 133, 360, and 411 and now I have the card representing his very first save
I know these aren't Brown and Gold, but I figured Green and Gold were close enough. I became a Green Bay Packer fan during the Vince Lombardi era and have been a fan ever since.1959 Topps Jerry Kramer, Babe Parilli and Max McGee, and a 1967 Philadelphia Henry Jordan .
I am now down to my final 21 cents.
Eventually, I'll add some Paypal money to my COMC account, but until then, boy, what a fun ride it's been.
