A few recent pickups for the collection:

One I had but this is 49/49, his jersey number

3 of the 4 cards from 2018 Topps Tier One. I like the design of this, really happy he was a part of it. If anyone needs a base auto I was in some cases breaks and I have several of the #/250.

I almost forgot this guy. SGA from Salem. Kinda funny they went from a pirates affiliate to the Sox just like he did. I don't have many bobbleheads but it was low prices with free shipping so I got it.

Got hosed tonight, a 2004 Topps Black was ended, only the second I've seen in the decade or so I really started this collection. Waited til the end and dropped what no figured would have been a number was way over anyone else's bid. $150 and I wasn't the high bidder, it took a few precious seconds for me to understand the app was telling me I wasn't the high bidder. Final price was $159.50!!! J F'ing C! I can't believe it...

With the only other bidder having 0 feedback, I seriously doubt that sale goes through. BTW awesome collection, I always enjoy seeing player collectors of non super stars but I sure remember how dominant and fun to watch Wakefield was at times.

No cards unfortunately, but here's a pic of me on my way to the World Series here in LA. (Got this shirt custom made as I'm a fan of the other guy on the shirt.). Had the chance to give Wake one of them when I was visiting Boston earlier this year.

Surprise, surprise, I got a message from the seller stating the winning bidder informed him that he couldn't/wouldn't pay so I got a "second offer". I told him no way would I pay that much since I was essentially bidding against myself at that point. I made him more than a generous offer, particularly since I suspect he was the fake bidder I was up against. Hopefully I get the last Topps Black I need without further incident.

He relisted it BIN at what I told him I'd pay, he still made more money on that card than his wildest dreams could have imagined, now I'm just waiting for it to arrive.
At this point I don't mind over paying for my needs list because there are so few, but it agitates me that it was questionable like that.

A small but absurdly hard card to track down, very happy to have added this for $2.50 shipped, almost balances out how much I over paid for the 04 Topps Black...almost. not a great pic, it's the 2012 purple toys r us parallel.

Can I ask why you collect Wakefield?

After my brief hobby hiatus in the early 2000s I wanted to start a new collection centered around a current Red Sox player and ultimately chose him because he had been a mainstay on the roster, and the ultimate team guy, plus the knuckler is cool.

Chicks dig the knuckler. :lol:
