COMC Shipment

A few highlights from a recent COMC shipment:
1998 Topps Gold Label Red Label #/25
1999 Topps MVP Promotions (print run of 100)

2016 Topps Archives 5x7 Gold #/10

An Archives Signature Update



The top four were acquired from COMC over the course of a few months, the next two Chromes were from ebay via Taiwan which took 60+ days to arrive.  The bottom two were also from ebay.
The '89 RC was #1 on my list to pick up, the new #1 would be a signature of his with the Rockies.

A Second 1/1

This is also the second Topps Archives buyback that I didn't have the original card.  I don't have the 1992 O-Pee-Chee card (Archives version posted previously) either.  I didn't know there was a missing foil version out there.  This is the last physical Archives card I have to be posted.  I do have a couple cheap ones waiting to be shipped from COMC sometime when the order gets a little larger.

Happy Thanksgiving From A Tribe Fan In Canada


I know they blew a 3-1 lead, but still, here's a little rub to all my friends and family that are Jays fans and one to Metallattorney...I was able to go to Game 6 with thanks to my cousin (marketing director for large Canadian company who bought sponsorship rights for the virtual ads)...got a call Halloween night asking if I could use the 2 tickets for next days game in Cleveland (7 hour drive)...after 1/2 hour of quick arrangements, the trip was a go...wish the outcome was better!  Amazing atmosphere around the ballpark and downtown Cleveland was quite nice...hadn't been there in 15 years.

This is actually my first serial numbered 1/1 card of Sandy Alomar Jr...and it came at half the cost ($22 off ebay) of most of the Archives Signatures numbered to 2 or 3.

Trio of Archives Sigs Numbered to 3 from Three Different Teams



I was really excited to see a Rangers Auto and jumped on it before I realized that Topps had forgot to put the foil Archives stamp on this one...I haven't seen any others (all players) that the foil is missing, however, it is definitely Sandy's auto.
