    Two latest pickups:


    Brett Myers, super tough auto. I wish I had him on a card, but this will do for now.


    Mike Marshall, also signed by John Smoltz and Jim Perry. I got this for a mere $40 shipped. Dr. Mike Marshall is incredibly tough. He rarely signed as a player and is notoriously anti-autograph. He did a private signing a few years ago at $250 a pop. I'll take this at $40.

    Still in shock that I got it so low. Poorly titled.

    I'm not at my computer anymore. I'll fix the pics later.

    That's incredible, are you looking for autos in a Houston uni only? I don't have any on your list, just curious. Really cool, and massive project.

    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    Thanks to Chris Potter, Marshall can be had for under $100 on just about anything but maybe a ball now. Not sure how deep his stock goes, but I have been able to add several cards and a SI and all were under $100 each. There are still plenty of listings at the old price range though, keeping those not actively looking for one in the dark on the newer wider availability.

    I'm guessing some of those will just need to be customs made from cuts.

    It has to fall into one of three categories:

    1. Wearing an Astros uniform.
    2. Wearing a Minor League uniform without obvious team affiliation. Sugarland Skeeters is fine. Iowa Cubs is not.
    3. No team shown. This is baseballs, index cards, etc.

    Anthony, sending you a PM.

    I actually won this from one of Chris Potter's auctions. He accidentally called John Smoltz the wrong name in the title, which I think helped keep the price lower.

    Nice. I need to upgrade my Reggie Harris. For a guy that seems to sign pretty easily TTM Iíve had horrible luck with him. First time I sent a custom and got back somebody elseís custom instead. I identified who it belonged to and they were kind enough to send me a signed magazine bio page which is ok enough. So I tried this year with a new Brewers custom and I appear to be the only one not getting a return lol
