Heyo, Loneycakes (yeah, that better not stick) back with the Cubs and Bears portion of the latest COMC order.
The Gale Sayers scanned rather nicely, but still doesn’t do the card the justice it deserves. Easily amongst the 10 best I picked up this time around.
The Pog card is kind of a mess. Think I might pop ’em out.
Can’t get enough Hester cards. That’s a collection I’d love to expand dramatically. Incidentally, and to unintentionally totally rip Fuji off with related question audience participation, do you consider Devin Hester a Hall of Famer, or at least well on his way to becoming one?
Orton, man… can’t let ol’ neckbeard go. Wrecking the Pack’s perfect season plans was most enjoyable.
Forte is a parallel with a super subtle rainbow shine and is #’ed /250 I think. It reminded me a lot of the shine on the lesser American Pie parallels, where you can’t even tell unless the light hits it right.
Finally, A-Train! What a great looking card with a great looking autograph. It’s on (or in I guess) card too. All I need is a swatch to complete his trifecta, and they are cheap and fairly plentiful.
Corey Patterson… what could have been? He was fading a bit when he got hurt that year, but would he have become legit if it never happened?
Welington looks like an embedded window ala the A-Train, but it isn’t. It is on-card though. I do believe this completes my trifecta for him.
Brett Jackson. Please pan out, please pan out, please pan out… Josh Vitters too.
Honestly, I don’t even remember buying this one. But it’s pretty cool. And I totally did forget something in the non-Cubs post, but it’ll have to wait. They really should have a post of their own. So stay tuned for that, along with one other keeper post. Then we go to the trade bait end of things.
Until our next…
