It's been a little while now since I bought anything for my Jimmy Howard collection, mostly because I've been preoccupied with several model railroading projects, one of which is actually an entirely new blog. It's definitely nice having two hobbies at the same time, especially when it comes to blogging. If I ever get bored with one, or am into one more than the other at any given time, there is always something to enjoy and continue working on.
Anyway, on to the reason for this post, the cards. A while back I came across a lot of six cards on eBay for a few bucks and noticed that four of the cards I still needed for my collection. I thought it was more than worth it for just the four cards, so I placed my bid and ended up winning the lot. Here's a look at what I got.
The first one is a base card from 2011-12 Upper Deck SP Game Used
The second was another base card, this time from 2012-13 Panini Rookie Anthology.
The first insert was a sticker from 2013-14 Upper Deck OPC.
The other insert was a Chasing the Cup from 2010-11 Panini Zenith:
The other two that I already had were a 2005-06 Parkhurst rookie and a 2012-13 OPC Retro. I ended up winning the auction for just $3.26 including shipping, which works out to only $0.54 per card, not bad if you ask me. Now that I've gotten these and had a chance to scan and catalog them, it's got me wanting to get out and put some of my model railroading efforts back into cards, so maybe I'll have some more to show off soon.
