Today I thought I had placed a bid for a lot of 2 autos. Both cards were "Ticket to Stardom" autos with one being Conor Jackson of Dbacks fame, and the other was Scott Kazmir of the Rays. I thought I placed a bid but for some reason it never posted, and I never thought to check again. It went for a total of 5 bucks shipped.
I also was submitting an offer for a 2012 Topps Triple Threads Longoria auto, but the sellers counter offer was only .50 less.... However, I did see a Longo Triple Threads auto of a lower number at a very low price. I clicked it with only 20 seconds remaining, tried placing a $20 dollar bid, but was beat by the buzzer. Who knows if someone had an auto bid, but it was heart breaking.
So now I would like to post my 3 favorite Longoria cards in celebration of obtaining my 50th different Longo card. It's crazy to think that just back in April I had zero cards period! Thanks again Dan!

I got to turn my birthday into a birthweek! We celebrated with my grandma today, and my girlfriend got me a cake to look like a baseball card. Then I went to my LCS and bought an awesome 16x20 Longoria auto! I love it! Its authenticated, and official. The guy also gave me a bunch of his extra topps chrome rays.

As many of you know, I am new to the card game and am looking for ways to upgrade my Rays collection. I have been buying a lot 2012 collections like A&G, Gypsy Queen, Bowman, Bowman Plat, Heritage, and only a little Series 2 and Archives. It is mainly base and some inserts, but that's all I am looking for in return. Let me know of a team or card you are looking for and let's see if we can make it happen.

Ill update this later, but I was excited to post day 2 asap.
The added signatures are Luke Scott, Ben Zobrist, and Jeremy Hellickson. I was really bummed that price never signed because he walked right by me. Hellickson was awesome and easily my favorite auto I got. I was saving my extra ball for David Price so I had him sign the team ball. Looking back, I'm really bummed I did that. Oh well! Rays also won 3 to 0. I love the look of Anaheim Stadium but the customer service is a joke. While I was waiting for Pena to sign I got kicked out from by the dugout. It was 45 minutes before the game and I was not blocking anything. This man came up to me and said "where are your seats?" I just replied "over there" and then he said " well then you need to be in them over them" I told him I was just waiting for this player and asked if I could stand there for 5 minutes and he said "sir, I asked you to go back to your seat, now you need to go". That was after another usher refused to let me go down to a section that was 3 sections down from mine.
Terrible. Good times though.

Regardless of what you think about our current President, he still is a very historic one and also a leader of our great country. My girlfriend Erika has both her aunt and uncle that work directly with the President in Washington D.C. so we always get little nicknacks from the White House. This past Tuesday was her birthday and today she received an 8x10 signed by the President. I don't think he actually did the personalization of it because that penmanship is amazing, but the name is 100% real even a nice little smudge in it. I don't really get into politics much, but this kind of stuff is pretty cool!

Dan from it's like having my own card shop was going through his cards and found some Rays cards and was nice enough to give them a new home. Thanks a ton Dan! I went ahead and posted a few that were my favorite, but seeing some of the names in the box he gave me made me laugh. I used to think players like Rolando Arrojo and Joe Kennedy were going to be unstoppable, and I was quick to learn that they were terrible players. I was excited to see a Tony Saunders card not because he was a good player (He did actually win a World Series with the Marlins), but because he was just a fun player to watch. He broke his arm while throwing a pitch, and then in his rehab assignment he broke the same arm. After only 3 seasons he went ahead and retired.
Thanks again Dan!!!
