Hi! I’m still around… THE HORN, err… and kicking. Pretty worn out and a little achy after being out for a few groceries in the suddenly stupidly cold weather, and doing up 25 scans tonight. The awkward angle I was working on the scanning from probably didn’t help. Need a higher place to sit the scanner.
Anyway, I’ve been on a bit of a Benchwarmer kick since the money I put up for myself to buy a single expensive card I wanted for my birthday (the 9th, 27 now, so old, get off my lawn, blah blah blah, tacopants, etc…) proved as futile as my other attempts to celebrate leveling up another year. It was gone right when I finally had the money there, but eh, I may get bitchy about it, but I roll with the punches well. Thus, back to eBay after a good long hiatus for some Benchwarmers I collect.
So, without further ado, here’s a little of that competent but half-assed nonsense hidden behind pretty pictures you’ve come to expect of me before I hit the deck.
The scan doesn’t even begin to do justice to the gold card top right. Bright gold foil with gold glitter trim. Hard. Core. You can see a slight difference in the background color on the two cards that look otherwise the same. Apparently the right one is a gold parallel, but man that is lazy. And if you know my blog or myself around the net, you know that I freakin’ know lazy.
This is my second Gail Kim auto, the first being an Americana auto/relic from back when I could regularly spend well over $10 on a card without fretting. Those were the days… I got this one for $1.77, and a shade under $5 with shipping.
And, as you may remember from my Benchwarmer posts in the past, there is still more to see. Show me those backs!
I’ve got a Brooke Morales auto and an older Benchwarmer box (2006 I think) that I picked up for just over the price of a blaster on the way, so be on the lookout for those. Also stay tuned for some Check Out My Cards goodness as well, seeing as it’s finally all scanned up, edited, and ready for posting. And with that I’ll just let you enjoy these fine scans and be on my way.
Until our next…
