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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚
ย 
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…
ย 
On the last pack of Bowman Chrome, what pops out? Some orange refractor goodness with INK!!
ย 
It’s not a Brett Lawrie, but still – nice getting a $100 card out ofย a retail box! Enjoy the colourful scans ๐Ÿ™‚

Mail Day #1…Brett Lawrie Style

Well, I thought that even though this is far from my first mail day, it’s the first one since the start of KKC (yep, I’ve already shortened the blog name in posts LOL). Last year, I really got back into watching the Jays. I’ll be honest, my wife and I had fallen off the band wagon after the lockout. Before that, we were always at games…we had a share in season tickets when you were lucky to get up in the 5th deck nosebleed area, and we were happy to be there (despite some wicked weekend sunburns on my part)! The first game that Brett Lawrie was called up, our household took a real liking to him, and we hadn’t even realized he was Canadian at that point! The heart, the hustle, the desire to be in the big leagues showed through big-time with Brett…the fans love him; he seemed to fit right in with his team-mates and when you look at this stats for his rookie season, well, they aren’t too shabby…

43 Games…150 At-Bats…9 HRs…25 RBIs…and a .293 Average

Hopefully this kid is a Blue Jay for a long time…and the way the management of our team has turned around over the past couple of years, it looks hopeful that we’ll see #13 at third base for years to come.

During the off-season I decided that maybe I’d go after a few Lawrie cards of my own…here is the meager start to that quest…I should probably try to snag a few more before the 2012 season starts, so that I’m not paying premium prices if he continues this season where he left off 2011…enjoy the quick show…if there’s one thing to say about Bowman Chrome cards, they do make for colourful mail days…
