April COMC pick-ups

To show you how behind I am on everything, here's the package I received last month from COMC. As I've stated (almost ad nauseum), if you complete their inventory COMC Challenges, usually 100 points for 50 cards, 1,000 points will give you $1 in COMC bucks, you can earn enough COMC dollars to pick up a nice little stack of free cards
I'm now up to 303,95 points, good for about $300 worth of free sports cards (and yes, I've spent almost every penny of that on COMC cards).
I can't go a month without picking up some more Tony Gwynn cards, so I'll begin with my Gwynn dirty dozen pick-up. It includes these 1999 Skybox Premium Soul of the Game #5SG, 1998 Paramount Team Checklists #29, 2000 Finest Moments Refractors #FM3, 1998 Upper Deck All-Star Credentials #AS19, 2014 Upper Deck National Convention #15 and a 2011 60 Years of Topps #105.

My other Gwynn cards feature these 2000 Pacific Ornaments #17, 2002 Diamond Kings T204 #RC22 (S/N 821/1000), 1995 Classic $10 Phone Cards #46, 2002 Donruss Originals Champions #C6 (S/N 183/800), 1999 Upper Deck Retro Tme Capsule #TC9, and a 1993 Leaf Gold All-Stars #R9 (with Jose Canseco).

As I'm a fervent fan of the old Padres mustard uniforms, I couldn't pass up these three cards. I also picked up an autograph, Luke Carlin's RC 2008 SP Authentic Autograph #145 (S/N 255/699), and Sean Burroughs' 2005 Diamond Kings Materials Bronze Bat-Jersey RC #185 (S/N 143/200). And of course, the three San Diego yellow uni cards - a 2002 Studio Classic Dave Winfield #CS16 (S/N 433/1000), 2006 Topps Rookie of the Week Ozzie Smith #20, and a 2002 Topps 206 Polar Bear Ozzie Smith #433.

Of course, being a hockey geek, I also had to pick up some hockey cardboard. Here's my 2013-14 Panini Contenders Justin Fontaine RC #130 (S/N 2/600) and Anton Belov RC #127 (S/N 384/600), 2011-12 Panini Contenders Marc-Andre Bourdon RC #191 (S/N 11/999), 2013-14 Panini Contenders Norris Contenders Slava Voynov #NC-7 (S/N 294/499), 2013-14 Panini Prizm Jonathan Huberdeau RC #243 and a 2014-15 Ultra Vladislav Namestnikov RC #171.


  1. Duff, how many Gwynn cards do you have? I went through my binders last night and came up with an even 600, but it seems like you're always posting Gwynn's that I've never seen before (including a whopping TEN in this post). Great COMC pickups, as usual.

  2. Marcus - Did you ever get that Gwynn checklist I e-mailed to you?
