Digital Signature...No Thanks

If you copy and paste a digital card, can you add it to your collection?  I really don't get the allure of digital cards and the Topps Bunt program.  Maybe I'm too old!

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.

Very few older cards being added to the collection...2000 Ultra Platinum Medallion #/50...I think I just need the 1998 Platinum Medallion.

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.
