Mailday #7 – It’s not a Bowman Chrome, but…

…I still love it! I haven’t been able to find the time to snag a Brett Lawrie ’11 Bowman Chrome auto yet (or possibly the coin, either) but I did get this for a very good price off of eBay last week. It just showed up yesterday, so figured, what better way to start posting again than showing off my latest Lawrie auto 🙂 There are a couple of endearing qualities to this card for me…first off, HARD-SIGNED! Secondly, he hasn’t shortened his autograph (yet) to what some a lot of athletes have these days.

Brett, if you by chance ever read this, remember, keep the quality of your autograph…it’s a great quality and shows you still care for the fans!

I didn’t bust any Gypsy Queen this year, but I have to say the design is a bit cleaner than last year. If any of my readers busted any, how were the hits this year?

I’m off on another business trip tomorrow (the main reason I haven’t been able to post anything in the past month), so while I’m down in New Orleans, keep collecting and enjoy the hobby!

A Beauty of a Find! At Wal-Mart!

I love a great pull like anyone else…even better to me when it comes from something you figure won’t net you anything…like the Wal-Mart 2011 Topps Value Box. You get 5 packs of 2012 Topps Update Series, a special Bryce Harper Refractor (one of three different ones), but best of all a hobby pack of 2011 Bowman Chrome! All for $19.92 🙂
 
In my desperate hunt for Brett Lawrie Bowman Chrome cards without having to take out a second mortgage or sell one of the kids, I picked up a few of these (the last three in the Guelph store near where I work) on Friday…
 
On the last pack of Bowman Chrome, what pops out? Some orange refractor goodness with INK!!
 
It’s not a Brett Lawrie, but still – nice getting a $100 card out of a retail box! Enjoy the colourful scans 🙂
