My purchasing has really slowed down as I've been devoting money to Christmas gift buying and an upcoming expensive vacation. I did get these two in the last few days, though:

2010 Topps Veteran SP Rickey Henderson - this was the last of the A's "veteran SP" cards I needed from those few years around 2010 where Topps was inserting several of those. They went away from that for a little while and it looks like they have gone back recently but a lot of those are SSPs. The Sogard was the last non-auto Red Refractor I needed from 2011 Topps Chrome, still need a couple of the signed versions though.

Combining a couple mail days. My daughter left a can of soda on her desk and the dog knocked it all over my V370. Luckily I took it apart and cleaned it tonight and it's still working just fine.


Random highlights from a 50 or so card 90's lot of set fillers I got in today.

I'd hate to see what the stack these came out of would have looked like if I were still trying to super collect Bagwell instead of just picking up stuff I think is cool. Most of these were in the same '90s sale but I picked up the Platinum Blue 2000 Invincible /67, Passing the Torch, Leaf Press Proof, and White Hot Bagwells from a fellow '90s enthusiast at a show last weekend.

This came in for the Ryan Helsley collection:

1990 O-Pee-Chee Box Bottom panel w/Mark McGwire and Dave Parker. A lot tougher to find than I would have thought, luckily both A's from this set were on the same panel so I could just grab this instead of trying to hunt down multiple panels or individually cut cards. I was beginning to think these didn't actually exist because for the longest time the only ones I could find that were called O-Pee-Chee were actually clearly the English-only normal Topps box bottoms. This was the last Dave Parker A's card from his playing career that was on my wantlist...still a few produced 2002-04 that I need, though.

Pacific had the coolest die cuts ...really wish they'd come back, nice haul!
Ditto.

On that same topic, I wish Panini would ditch their love affair of chromifying every product they release and make an attempt of bringing Dufex back. Then again, they’d probably over-saturate the market with that as well.

2009 Topps Unique jumbo patch Matt Holliday 02/15...this might be the nicest patch in my collection now, the "et" from Athletics. The Cespedes card isn't a big deal, but the seller sent it in a nice one-touch.

2014 Bowman Chrome Shimmer Refractor 13/15 Cespedes, 2021 Topps Independence Day Marcus Semien 41/76, and a 2009 UD Goodwin Mini printing plate Rich Harden (I collect some of his non-A's stuff). The Xavier Nady 2011 Gypsy Queen Black Mini is an extremely hard to find short print, I'm a big Nady collector and it took me 10 years to track down.

Got a forum mystery box in from another forum today and found a few things I liked.

The Browns sticker is for my dad who still has this insane idea that they are Super Bowl contenders.

IP/TTM autos, most with custom "cards" made for them - These are all from a friend on SCF. He does a nice job putting together custom cuts. I'm a fan of his style.

The Sonny Gray Tek auto was just a cheap find that I didn't already have. The Bowman Chrome WBC Refractor Cespedes is my second one, my cat took a bite out of my other copy. Weird, she's never mangled any other cards, must have something against Cespedes. I had never seen a 2001 Fleer Showcase Sweet Sigs redemption card for Xavier Nady, just the actual auto, so I had to grab this one when it popped up.
