I decided to take a trip over an hour away to visit a guy with an Astros game used collection that was said to be one of the biggest in Texas. While I doubt that, I must say, I am very pleased with the purchase. The only bad thing that came of it was the possible malaria I contracted thanks to the thousands of mosquitos that made a buffet out of me while the seller and I were outside talking.
I am sitting here watching Bryce Harper at bat in his first major league game, and going through everything. I figured hey – why not take some pictures to share on my blog? Here we go …
Over 300 – Mainly Biggio, Berkman, Bagwell and Oswalt.
Some of these cards have 3 players and a few have six players (3 front and 3 back)
Several Triple Threads
A couple PSA 3 T206’s
A few retired guys / hall of famers + you can see a nice exquisite patch bat barrel auto, etc.
Various patches, some jerseys with up to 6 pieces of material, etc. Really, really cool stuff!
Tons of Biggio jumbo prime patch cards
I am very happy with the purchase – there is a lot of fun stuff here. I am surprised with how many aren’t just the typical small piece of jersey – many have several pieces, several players, actual patches, etc.
