    I remember seeing these for sale, occasionally autographed, at the local card shops back in the 80's. I only remember seeing the McGwire/Canseco versions, though. Pretty sure the photos were done by a NorCal-area photographer, like I said, these were always at the local shops. Not sure how rare or valuable they'd be considered.

    I think the photo is from '87 because that was Reggie's last year playing in Oakland.

    EDIT: Those look like the '88-89 jerseys...Maybe a retirement ceremony day / photoshoot???

    These came in the mail early last week. I thought the PSA sample was kinda cool for $5ish. Really happy about the '90 Aqueous Test. Wasn't sure if I'd ever find one.

    You know, I am always searching for new McGwire cards I "need" and more often than not, I come up empty (or the ones I "need" are priced above my comfort level). I do, however, come across many that I already have. There are times when I say to myself, "gee, that's a pretty good price for that card...I probably would jump on that if I didn't already have it", and then I just move on.

    BUT, there are other McGwire collectors out there who may be interested in adding that card to their collections. If it is ok with everyone, and I am not breaking and forum rules, I figured it'd be pretty cool to post some eBay finds. Maybe it would help some folks on here. I am NOT at all an "expert" on what makes for a good deal on a card, but I thought I would share my feelings nonetheless.

    Here are 3 that I came across over the past few days; Again, if there is no interest, and my posts are just taking up space, please let me know and I will stop. Also, if this is against any FCB rules, please let me know and I will stop.

    2001 Topps Chrome - Golden Anniversary Reffractor
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/2001-Topps-...gAAOSw42JZKfe6
    Actually a pretty hard card to find and with a best offer, getting this shipped for potentially under $10 is pretty cool.

    1997 Leaf - Statistical Standouts /1000
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Mark-Mcgwir...gAAOSwIBJaXUjx
    I personally think this is an outstanding price, using the best offer to get this guy for potentially under $20. Despite being numbered to /1000, this card is valuable.

    2000 Topps Chrome - Magic Moments Refractor
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Mark-McGwir...4AAOSwoBtW4Zjd
    I paid around $20 for some of these. Maybe I am just dumb, but getting this one for a bit over $10 seems good to me.

    There are rumored to only be 30 of each of the '00 chrome magic moments refractors. I personally think there are more but they are a tough set to put together so for 9$ that's pretty awesome

    That is an awesome idea to add cards that are a good deal. Thanks for doing that. This will really help educate me on some of these cards too.

    delsant2 Great idea as you know I missed many years being active duty Navy, then had to leave the hobby for a while as well. I can not wait to get all of my updates done to the Pc,and get funds up to start hitting on ones like this.

    I had mentioned a while ago that I was going to post the picture of my new G/U patch I got in November...goodness, well, better late than never I suppose! My wife and I just moved our little one out of our room and into her own "big kid room". She is 7 months now, so we were a tad late in doing this. Anyway, it has freed me up to actually look at my collection now, since it is in my room. I rarely ever had a chance due to nap times and bedtime. Anyhow, below is the patch and two other recent pick-ups.

    Haven't had a whole lot of action as of late. Anyone else doing better? Some decent new cards arrive in the mail recently? Do share!

    Cheers,

    Mark
