I ended up staying up late Thanksgiving night and waiting for COMC's sale to go into effect which it did 11pm my time. I also went back the next morning for round two. In all I shipped over 70 cards to me. About a third of those cards were pick ups since the last Black Friday. I still check the site regularly to see if any of the challenges open and pick up a little free store credit that way, I also bought a bunch of cards during the Spring Cleaning sale. Ahem, enough yapping lets see what I got this year.
Over the past year I've been pretty focused on what I pick off of COMC, it's been mostly Robin Yount cards. This Black Friday I had a bunch of cards I was watching to see if I could get them at a discount. I was still pretty focused, but also branched out into some cheap Brewers autos, relics, and parallels.
Speaking of early parallels, I was not a fan of Pacific when it was putting out baseball in the late 90s and early 2000, but they did bring about a ton of innovation to the hobby and for good or bad numbered parallel cards were one of those. This Geoff Jenkins is part of the 2000 Pacific Revolution - Shadow Series parallel and it's another card I can't wait to see in person. Number to 99 this one also cost me just about a dollar.
Also from the same set I picked up this Ron Belliard Red parallel
Another great cheap parallel from 97 Donruss Studio of John Jaha
I also picked up some great cheap autos and relics from some unsuccessful and maginally successful Brewers prospects and players of days gone by.
I also ended up picking up this Taylor Jungmann auto for only a buck. Taylor bounced up and down in the Brewers system till 2016. He plays over in Japan right now.
Here's the collection of relics I picked up cheap, most of these where under $2.
I also picked up a couple oddball cards from my newest favorite Brewer Keston Huira.
Added one Topps Living to almost complete my team set. I ended up picking up Sogard's 2018 card for $1.25, way cheaper than even if I had bought in bulk.
I'm not sure if this Yelich was part of the pack promotion Panini had at the National, but this is part of the National set. For 55 cents it was a no brainer pick-up.
Now onto the Younts!! Over the year's my collecting habits and priorities have changed. Now I'd say my first and foremost collecting focus is on Hall of Famer, Mr. Brewer Robin Yount. As a matter of fact while I've been neglecting this blog I've been keeping up with new releases and posting pretty regularly over at the Yount Collector. And all of these cards will be featured over there eventually once I get them in-hand.
Robin has had a bunch of new cards this year in flagship Topps and finding and adding all those and their parallels is something that will keep me busy for years to come, but it was nice to pick up the Black parallel of the Faces of the Franchise insert with Yelich and Fingers and for under $2, yes please!
And finally I also picked up his 2019 Topps Update legends variation for $2 and change. His Series 2 legends variation is also in this shipment, but I picked that up well before Black Friday.
Anyone else pick up some time stuff this Black Friday?
