Here are the next two packs in my COMC hobby box. These are my favorite two so far...
I promised there would be a serial killer in these two packs, and here it is. Just because I don't buy A & G hobby boxes doesn't mean they don't make some nice cards. This one definitely qualifies. This card makes me want to watch From Hell. Great movie.
Awesome in-game photo. I can't be sure but I want to say that's number 4 down on the ice for Boston. Unfortunately the Rangers disposed of the B's fairly handily in the 72-73 playoffs, eliminating them in just 5 games:
Not really sure why I went with this one. I guess just because it's a Buchholz rookie that I was missing and it cost a quarter. Unfortunately the back is dinged in the upper left corner. Lesson learned folks, always check the front and back scans on COMC!
I have to confess that I didn't know this when I picked this card out, but apparently Rutherford is the GM for the Carolina Hurricanes. I'm willing to bet he's sporting a different hairstyle these days.
Man these look great.
One of my favorite '75 Topps cards. I got the regular version almost a year ago now, so it was only fitting that I add the mini to the collection.
I might lose some people with this one, but you can't get a much more obscure subject than an Ewok! In case collecting baseball cards doesn't make me enough of a nerd, I also enjoy the Star Wars films. Well, the first three more than the last, but I still own them all. Return of the Jedi was the first one I ever saw as a kid, and I must have watched it 30 times thanks to our recorded VHS copy. I don't collect anything Star Wars related, but I couldn't pass this sticker up.
An example of 1991 Topps done right! There will be one more '91 Topps card somewhere in these posts. Any guesses?
Yeah, another one of these. 17 strikeouts in no-hitter number two:
Two packs, two cards of the Bruins losing in the playoffs. Not so painful to post these though after last season!
This is the first Orange refractor in my collection, and wow, these look great in person. I might be adding the rest of the Red Sox from this set to my want list.
It's going to take me years but some day I will finish this set. 84 cards to go...
Easily one of my favorite minis in this haul. I love these World's Deadliest Sharks inserts from 2008 Allen & Ginter. I pulled the Bull Shark over two years ago, but everyone knows the Great White is the card to have. This leaves me with three more to track down...if anyone's got the Tiger, Oceanic Whitetip, or Mako Shark cards hit me up! At the pace I'm going it'll be six more years before I track them down.
Don't worry, there won't be many Gypsy Queen cards left in these posts, in fact this might be the last one. If anyone's got Gypsy Queen cards to trade I just got my Want List updated yesterday.
Pack 9: $1.97
Pack 10: $4.75
Running Total: $28.70
Packs 11 and 12 coming soon...we'll see an auto hit, an evil villain and another great goalie mask!
You've Got Mail #82: $30 A Week Habit - One of the best things about blogging about cards is initiating trades with new trade partners. That's just what I did a while back when Robert over at $30...
