Jeez it's like practically everything that was in the mail arrived today:

A couple of nice additions to the 1988 Topps autographed set. Four more and I'll be under 50 to go.

Pretty good mailday when a Josh Donaldson Bowman Chrome Orange Refractor RC isn't the main event. The Zito auto is /25, he was in a few different Topps sets in 2020 and I've picked up some tough ones but am still missing a lot. The Crosby is a Mirror Emerald 1/5. The McGwire I think is one of those Fractal Matrix cards where the regular one is tougher than the Die-Cut...in any event I don't have the regular one.

BORING.

NOT SO BORING. Got these for $5 each, which seems like a decent deal for the Bazooka Backs. I wish they just would have stuck with this style instead of transitioning to the Brooklyn Backs. I prefer gum to Brooklyn.

And I finally joined the Red Crusade club:

I don't really care about it being a PSA 10 myself but it does make it more worth more if I ever decided to sell it. After finally getting one of these in hand, I'm going to be blasphemous and say the Greens and Purples look better. The red color isn't as vibrant as some of the really best red refractors. Still a beautiful card, though. Early frontrunner for my 2021 pickup of the year!

I didn't intentionally buy this card, but I bought the boxes and they arrived yesterday. Lots of other nice highlights, but this was the monster:

After a couple days with no mail I got these two rarities:

1998 Bowman Silver Autograph Eric Chavez and 2011 Topps Heritage Stamps Cahill/Gonzalez 45/62. I don't have too many of the Heritage Stamps.

Just got this one in, got one of the plates almost two months back. I don't chase after specific numbering often unless it's a jersey number but I just noticed 17/25, 17 was his season high for wins. I like the design, simple, clean, even if it is a little boring.

Three for today:

012321-1.jpg
The Bando is the 1971 Topps Scratch Offs...it was difficult to find because he has 1970 and 1971 versions and they look exactly the same. As far as I can tell the only difference is the background color inside the booklet card, which of course often does not get shown in pictures. That's why I settled for this diamond cut copy, it's about as good as I could find for a decent price. The Sonny Gray Bowman Purple Ice RC is 02/10. I don't care at all about it being graded gem mint so it was kind of annoying paying more for that, but I'm not going to sit around waiting for an ungraded copy of a /10 card. The Dilfer is a 1998 card /750 so I obviously already have one, but this one is special:

Jersey number! Pretty sweet on a /750 card.
