Not sure what it is, but lately I've had little to no motivation to actually sit down and write a post for the blog. I think its mostly the long hours at work lately with all of our customers trying to get things done before the Christmas break. Anyway, today's mail has finally given me something to be excited about as far as collecting goes.
About a week or so ago I came across a listing for another Jimmy Howard card on my want list, an Exclusives parallel from 2011-12 Upper Deck. This one was numbered 094/100.
The best part was winning it for just $0.99 plus $2.50 for shipping. Considering how much something like this would've cost me at a local card show plus the gas to get there, I'd say this was a pretty good deal. Now I just need to track down the spectrum version.
