    delsant2's David Wright Collection

    Ugh the 2006 Flair Blue/Emerald and Fleer Sepia/Black & White cards. The Blue/Emeralds are tough to tell on even when you have one in hand, unless you have it side by side with the other version. The Sepias/B&W's can be difficult with some pictures but are a little easier...of course the...

    2004 Topps Fan Favorites Jose Canseco Autograph - SP with a stated print run of 100. Fan Favorites SP autos from the original 2003-05 run can be very tough to find, so I was willing to overlook the crappy centering on this card when the price dropped into a range I was comfortable with. I hope...

    delsant2's David Wright Collection

    They pop decently with my scanner, just imagine these as David Wright cards: I like the '95s better but this year was decent for refractors. Nice Red!

    A couple of not especially amazing ones today: I love Gold Refractors but in the last couple of years even the RC autos of scrubby players have been selling for waaay more than what they are worth to me. Got lucky on this Jonah Heim, the seller somehow managed to not put the words "gold" or...

    Weird variety of stuff today: The Dilfer is another "buyback" out of 2020 Panini Honors. They had four /2 cards in the set, one /3, and ten 1/1s. I only have one 1/1 (have only seen one or two others pop up), the /3, and this one /2...they don't really show up for sale much. I've made some...

    Yep...mine is only the bronze version of that card, but it'll do. Hope to get one of his A's cards signed some day.

    I only buy my silver press proofs from people in Humptulips.

    Some great stuff in today: 2014 Topps Chrome Red Refractor Yoenis Cespedes 05/25, leaves me one short of the team set. The Mulder 2004 Mirror White auto 021/100 was the last one I needed that was /100 or higher, I know I need one that is /25 but there are probably some that are /5 or...

    delsant2's David Wright Collection

    Jumbo cards are cool in theory, but they are so annoying to store since you have to separate them out from everything else. I have a couple of shoeboxes with random A's jumbo cards, postcards, coins, pogs, those stupid Topps Chipz, etc all randomly tossed in there. I do like that they can put...

    Thanks...I have completed quite a few, I should make a post listing them all at the end of the year. Here's a set I'm not close to completing, all the player/team collectors know how difficult this one is: 1999 Stadium Club First Day Issue Jason Giambi 156/200. Don't let the /200 fool you...

    Got the latest COMC shipment in, about 7 months worth of purchases...here are the highlights: Start off with some nice Cansecos. I've been looking for the three Canseco Fan Favorites Refractors, 2003-2005, for a few years now and they rarely pop up. I still needed all three at the beginning...

    COMC Final Shipment

    On my most recent economy shipping order placed 7/14/21, it originally had an estimated ship date in November. I think it started with 1.2 million cards ahead of mine? The estimated ship date kept getting earlier and earlier for a while, I think it was mid-September at one point. But as it...

    Greg McMichael - Tossed in with Jason Isringhausen from the Mets for Billy Taylor, Isringhausen worked out great but McMichael was a dud. Mario Valdez - Played 37 games for the 2000-01 A's. Never appeared in the majors after that but played pro ball in Mexico all the way up to 2015. Ed...

    Dilferules's 1988-present Oakland A's autograph thread

    Alright, got enough cards in my COMC shipment that I'll have to split it over 2 posts. Domingo Acevedo - Formerly a starting pitching prospect, made his MLB debut this year with the A's as a reliever and coughed up 3 homers in 11 innings. Kevin Appier- Great for the Royals but pretty mediocre...

    Pete Kozma - No gain on this one, he slipped in for 3 games at the end of the 2021 season. So that's 614/693. Not a lot of pickups recently but my latest COMC order just shipped today so I should have a decent pile of new autographs soon.

    Yes, I know it's a 6, but it'll work for me and some of the Golds from series 2 are very tough to find. I had not seen an Eck pop up in recent memory. It was evident from the auction pic that it wasn't gem mint but I couldn't figure out what was dropping it to a 6 - turns out there is a fairly...

    Tough to tell from the scan but the 2001 Pacific Mulder is the Hobby LTD version, 24/70. Khris Davis is a 2017 Gold Refractor 15/50. And Elvis Andrus is the Memorial Day Camo version, 05/25.

    Show off your favorite Multi Player Card!

    Have to match this one up with the Greene version...in hindsight not the best multi-player selections for UD in that set: Nice opportunity for Padres and A's collectors to slip a Jeter into their collection, though.

    Dilferules's 1988-present Oakland A's autograph thread

    Two in today: Andrew Chafin - Reliever has been excellent since he was picked up from the Cubs mid-season. His Bowman Chrome auto is weirdly difficult to find and pricey, so I settled for this one. Cody Martin - Pitched 4 games for the A's in 2015, starting and ending two. Not the same two...

    September 2021 - New Arrivals Thread

    Got some color in yesterday: The Olson was the last non-auto Blue Refractor I needed from 2012. It went cheaper than I was expecting ($11 plus shipping) which I assume is because the centering means it wouldn't grade super high. I remember centering being a pretty common issue with that set...
