Well we are a week removed from the biggest shopping day of the year. What did I do? I took off work and stayed home with my son. Oh and I did my annual COMC Black Friday order. I ended up getting my card yesterday. I was surprised how fast COMC was able to process, complete, and ship my order on what is their biggest promotion of the year. I also didn't spend a dime of my own money. I have been completing challanges on the website for months and saving my money up especially for this event. Well mostly. All in all I think I amassed about $45 dollars in store credit.
That netted me 26 new cards. It breaks down to 20 new Robin Yount cards from my collection. Which I will showcase on the Yount Collector. I also picked up 4 new Rollie Fingers cards, 2 of which helped fill holes in my 70's cards. Those will be showcased on the Rollie Fingers Collector.
I know what your saying, but CB what the hell are you going to show us then? Well if your keeping count I still have 2 cards yet unaccounted for.
After I opened my 1996 Leaf Preferred pack I got from Collector Crate I looked to see who else was on the Steel card inserts checklist.
I couldn't resist picking up the two players on the checklist I collect.
I think I spent a whole dollar for both cards and while I prefer my Molitor cards with him in a Brewers uniform, I'll take it. I really like these cards. That's what I love about a lot of the stuff that came out of the late 90's so much innovation and imagination. These cards also come with a couple parallels, a gold version and a numbered Power version.
Anybody else have fun on Black Friday?
