Sportscards from the Dollar Store.
That's a wrap on the Prizm content, I'm not going to subject you to all 100+ cards or anything like that. Just because Prizm made up the bulk of the box doesn't mean there weren't some other gems to be found.
I never thought I'd be the proud owner of an over-sized Martin Hamrlik autographed photo, but there you go. Douglas was even kind enough to include the proper Ultra Pro sheet to store this in, so I can safely tuck it away in a binder. Very cool.
1960 Topps #317 - Pumpsie Green
Here was the main piece of the package, and the card that resulted in this exchange to begin with. I had always remembered Douglas pulling this awesome buyback rookie card of the man who at long last integrated the Red Sox. When I decided recently that I was ready to part with my 2016 Topps Now Bartolo Colon HR card, I thought of Douglas right away and proposed a one-for-one swap for Pumpsie here.
This might be my single favorite buyback yet, and I know the Colon card is absurdly expensive/tough to get, so I'd say this was one of those trades where both parties really enhanced their collections and came out on top. Will Pumpsie here make my buyback franken-set though?
Douglas, this was maybe the best package of cards you've ever sent me. Thank you! I pretty much exhausted the rest of what I had for you with my last mailing, but rest assured I will be on the lookout for more stuff when I get to a show or the local hobby shop here.
A great start to 2017 here as far as my collection goes!
