By the time the smoke had cleared (and my keyboard had stopped smoldering), I had earned $26 in COMC cash for 26,000+ points. Never having spent much time on COMC, I decided to do some searching and found some interesting cards.
I ended up getting a couple of San Diego Padres cards and a couple of Chicago Blackhawks hockey cards, including a 1952-53 Gus Mortson card and still had change left over.
The two Padres cards I picked up were a 2013 Topps Triple Threads Unity Relics Emerald Alonso S/N 8/18 ($4.99) and a 1988 Kenner Starting Lineup Unissued Goose Gossage (55 cents). The Alonso card has a nice piece of bat embedded, it's emerald, and it's always cool to have a piece numbered to only 18.
The Gossage was listed as a 1988 Starting Lineup Talking Baseball San Diego Padres #28. However, there is no Beckett's listing by that name. In fact, Gossage wasn't included in the standard 1988 Starting Lineup set. The only 1988 Kenner Goose Gossage card I could find referenced was the 1988 Kenner Starting Lineup Unissued. It's a very nice card, regardless.
My other pick-up for the week is this Tony Gwynn card I found on E-Bay.
All in all, a rather nice week of cards.
As a seller on COMC, I would like to offer you my heartfelt gratitude at your tireless efforts to update the catalog.ReplyDelete
You got some nice stuff for your efforts... I wouldn't mind seeing the Blackhawk cards, would that violate the Brown & Gold theme too much?
