Epic Friday

Today shaped up to be an awesome day. I got to meet up with Dan from It's Like Having My Own Card Shop, and also Larry from My 2008 Topps Set Blog at a Dbacks signing inside of the Wild Horse Pass Casino. Scheduled to attend were Miguel Montero, Adam Eaton, Josh Collmenter, and David Hernandez. In the end, Montero did not appear, but Pat Corbin took his place. I was very pleased at it since it was free, and it is better than the autographs that I picked up last year, but I was a bit bummed Montero did not appear. Tomorrow is Fanfest, and I already have my tickets to get autos from Martin Prado, Jason Kubel, and Cody Ross. I figure it will be a good start to the my 2013 Dbacks team ball that I hope to accomplish.

Below are just a few of the awesome cards that Dan gave me. Thanks a lot Dan, I really appreciate it!

James Shields Mini

Matt Moore Relic Topps 13* This card is awesome in person!

Awesome Longo Rookie
Fred McGriff. 

Growing up I was a huge Jose Canseco fan, regardless of his past, I think he was awesome to watch play.

Once I arrived home, I noticed that my ebay bubble mailer was here! I had 2 team sets of 2013 Dbacks/Rays with all the inserts, and then my Fernando Rodney auto card! Team sets, auto, and 50 wrappers all ran me around $8 shipped. Gotta love the ebay seller Brentandbecca.


  1. It was a great event! Glad you liked the Rays cards! You got a great deal on all the 2013 Topps cards! Topps tweeted out today that they still had some of the wrapper redemptions left so I think you'll get yours!
