An air freshener. That can't be a common sight, although it becomes more apparent as time passes that a lot of stuff got stashed away that you'd never think would when it was new. You can thank those kinds of people for preserving the past issues, who had the foresight to save a bunch!
2003 Ultimate Collection #169 Hideki Matsui Autograph Rookie Card /250 -- A hot card once, prices have finally fallen in to my stratosphere after 20 years. Very happy to land one. As an autograph collector, I was more focused on finding a clean auto without any bubbling and care less about the small surface indent on the back. He has a ton of newer autos, which have helped bring his prices down across the board with his autographs, even the key ones.

My Matsui collection at present; some Mirrors, Japanese rookies and my favorite of the bunch the 2003 Topps Kanebo. His only Topps rookie issue from 2003, only found in Japan. Would like to eventually track down the LCM Gold, Tomy, Calbee and Takara at fair prices.
