You probably already know the set but the 1910 T218 cards have a lot of track athletes as well. I'm a thrower myself, found some neat ones in that set.

No I didn't! Great looking cards, will be on my radar. Looking forward to reading the blurbs on backs and seeing who appeals to me. Thanks

Glad to help, I really like the old set like that, I also enjoy the current UD champions set for the same reason but I haven't chased much in them

One mistake, one Yadi pre-rookie, and one upgrade in the mail today.

The mistake: 2004 Donruss Classics Team Colors Auto /50. Great card. Too bad I'm building the Team Colors Combos Patch/Auto set and not just the signatures. This is what happens when you don't pay attention on eBay.

The Pre-Rookie: 2003 Grandstand Tennessee Smokies Yadier Molina - This one doesn't show up too often so I snagged it.

The Upgrade: 1998 Donruss Signature Significant Signatures Blue Ink George Brett - The copy that was previously in my master set is the only really off center card I've ever seen from this set. The blue ink version seems to be the rarer of the two but who knows.

Wasn't able to update for a few days so I have a small pile:

052122-1.jpg
2020 Bowman Chrome Draft Tyler Soderstrom Autograph...this was over $100 since it came out but he's started the season not so hot in the minors so it's dropped quite a bit and I was able to grab one for what it was worth to me, since I still think he'll be good. That leaves one lone A's Bowman Chrome "base" auto I need before 2021, Robert Puason from 2020. That one has also dropped recently but I think he's a dud so it's going to have to drop a little more before I pick one up. 2004 Leaf Certified Mirror Gold Autograph Barry Zito 07/10. I was real happy to find this one since I collect Zito pretty heavily and like to get the A's Mirror cards. Another Zito auto as well...2004 SP Authentic Chirography "Silver Duo Tone" 10/30. Rich Harden 2005 Cracker Jack Mini Blue 22/50. 2021 Topps Gold Sean Manaea gets me within 2 of that team set. And finally, a 2019 Topps Father's Day Blue A's team card 43/50.

052122-2.jpg
One for my signed 1988 Topps set, Dave Winfield. Still need Clemens and Willie Randolph to finish up the All Star subset. 23 left to complete the whole set! The pickups are definitely few and far between now.

2003 Topps Chrome Black Refractor 110/199 Derell McCall, puts me one away from completing the team set. Same for the 2004 Terrence Long, but the last one I need for that set is an auto/25. 2021 Topps '86 Autograph Matt Chapman finishes up my non-Canseco/McGwire/Henderson needs from that set. And last is a 2022 Topps Vintage 57/99 A's team card.

Carrol Spinney OMLB Oscar the Grouch Sketch with Autograph -- Not too much of stretch to count this as a baseball pick up. Mr. Spinney was a great TTM signer, but his stuff has naturally been harder to find after he passed away. More famously known as the voice/puppeteer for Big Bird. I Am Big Bird: The Caroll Spinney Story is a great movie for those who enjoy documentaries.

Actually, it is an upgrade. I prefer the colors and more detailed expressions of my first one, but it unfortunately has some fading as is seen with Sweet Spot cards due to the synthetic material. Still, much nicer looking than many of his ballpoint sketches out there.

Lastly, a Mike Richter autograph, couldn't pass this for $10 shipped.

Man the SP Top Prospects Destination The Show cards are so tough to find...I'm still missing 5 A's from 1995-2000 after picking up the above Ben Grieve. I kind of like the Gold Heritage Clubhouse Collection parallels since they're hand-numbered every year...the Chapman is from 2022. Lastly are a couple of 2013 Bowman Chrome Draft color Refractors I didn't have.

Trading Card? They can't even bother to ID it, or would that cost more? Nice selection though. I have been hooked on autos and can't ever seem to have enough, even of the same card sometimes!
It costs more. They offer two services. Auto authentication only (what our group sub did) or Card and auto grading. All those were $11 each to authenticate and slab. If I'd wanted cards graded too it would have been over $50 each to grade, authenticate, and slab.

Little bit of mail today:

Missed out on a monster “dream” card I was going for, so I “settled” on this.
1995 UD SP football set.

One of my faves at the time and still. Great design, tons of action pics and great RCs.

Only cost about $20, which is about 5% of the amount I spent at the time it came out. LOL

“Air” McNair was my favorite but T. Davis, C. Martin and Derrick Brooks stand out as top rookies. Also RCs of some of the ‘95 Penn State starters, who had an unstoppable Offense.
