Some COMC Loot!

Another brutal week, please be patient if you're awaiting a card package or return email from me.  I'm about out of steam, but I didn't want to go post-free for the entire work week, so I figured this would be the perfect chance for an image-heavy post showing off some COMC purchases.  Here's a good chunk of cards I picked up on the site over the last few months and haven't had a chance to post...

This Will Clark SP puts me one card closer to completing the 2012 Archives set, and it goes nicely with the signed copy I picked up a while ago.

I can't seem to resist the 2011 Topps Cognac Retired Stars parallels, especially when I can manage to find them for around a buck or less.  This Reggie Jackson is one of the nicest I've seen yet, just a beautiful card.  The retro A's uniform is perfect for a cognac parallel.

I grabbed a couple of these from the same seller by making a package-deal offer, and this Fisk was what got the ball rolling.  This card had been on the Most Wanted List in my sidebar for quite some time, happy to erase it.

Closing out the trio is another Athletic, Rickey Henderson.

These next few Diamond Anniversary parallels were actually won quite a few months back now, and got me a good chunk closer to completing the Red Sox team set...






These were much cooler when they were still novel, before there were 70 different shades of them in every Topps release...

The Topps Lineage set never really grew on me, but I thought the inserts were well done so I did try to grab all of the Red Sox at least.  I already had the Adrian Gonzalez 3-D insert, so Carl Crawford was the only other one I wanted.



I snagged these three stickers from the same seller on the cheap...



The last of the Lineage, a trio of Stand-Up inserts.  Two Hall-of-Famers and one guy who seems like he could maybe get old as a teammate after a while.



Things seem to come in threes for me on COMC for some reason...

2009 Allen & Ginter World's Biggest Hoaxes, Hoodwinks & Bamboozles Victor Lustig mini.  This was purchased because it fits into my very small Eiffel Tower collection.

This Mako Shark from the 2008 Allen & Ginter World's Deadliest Sharks insert set puts me at four out of five now.  I'm now missing only the elusive Tiger Shark, card #2, to knock this set off.  It's been added to my Most Wanted list in the sidebar...

This 2010 Nolan Ryan insert was on my Most Wanted list as well, an interesting 1957 Topps tribute.  I've only shipped 4 or 5 orders ever from COMC and I think every one of them has included at least one Nolan Ryan card.

Last but not least, here's a hockey card.  I swear my purchases weren't all baseball.  I'll post some of the hockey goodies soon, but I had this one scanned already so here you go.  I know I've said this probably 50 times but the early Ultra insert sets were junk wax perfection as far as I'm concerned.  I've wanted a copy of this Brodeur for nearly two decades now, nice to finally land one.  I really do enjoy shopping on COMC!

I do like the stand-ups. One of my favorite COMC pick-ups was an orginal SP Ron Santo for $25.00, a steal.
