Billy Williams RC!
I’m miserable and cranky and pissed off about so many things I don’t even know where to begin, so I’m just going to show off a 12-pack of card porn to lighten the mood, because the mood definitely needs lightened. So let us take refuge in the cards… These are all mine, picked up by various means over the past few months. Yes, including that beautiful beat up Billy Williams RC at the top of the post (cost: $3 on COMC on Black Friday 2013).
Frank Thomas Jersey & Card Frame..
This was also part of the trade with Shot Not Taken. It didn’t make it into that post for the simple fact that it was still in my backpack and didn’t get scanned until around two weeks later.
2009 Draft Picks & Prospects Neftali Feliz Purplefractor RC..
This came out of a random discounted fat pack I stumbled across towards the end of last year.
Roxxi Printing Plate Autograph..
Possibly the earliest pickup here. Cool printing plate with a sticker auto stuck on it of perhaps the single most underutilized woman in the history of TNA’s Knockout division. And that’s saying something, when they also severely underutilized Ayako Hamada, who might be the single most talented lady wrestler in the world, and of course my girl Sarita, who has gone onto to bigger success in both Mexico and Japan.
2013 Bowman EJ Manuel Orange parallel #’ed 54/299..
The back compares him to competent game manager Alex Smith. I don’t know how to feel about that…
2008 Donruss Elite Extra Edition Cat Osterman Collegiate Patches Autograph #’ed 160/250..
It is the realest shame Panini ran this concept into the ground so fast, because this card, much like Cat herself, is absolutely spectacular.
Bloodlines Liz Carmouche auto..
Here’s a fearsome and fantastic addition to my fledgling Girlrilla page, which is now up to TWO.
Milk Duds Billy Williams..
More Billy Williams! This time it’s super beat up vintage food-based oddball goodness.
2003 Topps Traded Shin- Soo Choo Gold #’ed /2003..
I’ve been jonesing for a new addition to my Shin-Soo Choo page for awhile now, and this is what I came away with.
BowChro Aramis RC..
The desire to break 100 cards with another player does not preclude me from getting more cards of future Hall of Famer Aramis Ramirez. This was one of a half dozen newbies of him in my latest COMC shipment. They may crop up here & there over time.
Heroes & Prospects Andre Dawson Jersey..
Whine about lack of logos all you want, you big babies. This card just oozes class. 😉
’09 iMPACT! Booker T auto #’ed /60..
Closing out this post with my favorite wrestler of all-time! Booker T autos are extremely hard to come by cheaply (dog tag auto aside), but I managed to secure this bad mamma-jamma on COMC for $8. It’s even an inscribed version. Unlike every other WWE reject, Booker never won the TNA World Title, but they did create a brand new vanity belt (later renamed and became their midcard title) specifically for him. So I guess he’s got that going for him, which is nice.
That’s all for now. Time to go work on some half-baked novel writing or some such. Thanks for stopping by, and we’ll be seeing y’all again real soon.
Until our next…
