I got 3 packages in the mail today and inside each was a cobra.  I had made about a dozen ebay purchases over the past week so I really wasn't sure what was going to be inside each package.  After opening the 3rd package and seeing another Dave Parker relic, I went all Cobra Commander and screamed Coooobbbrrrrraaaa!!!!!!  True story that really happened.

Let's take a look at some of the treasure I scored collectively for less than $10.

2 different versions of the 2005 Donruss Leather & Lumber Big Bang Relics.
2005 Donruss Leather ^& Lumber Big Bang BAT RELIC 208/250
The bat version which is kinda blah numbered 208/250...
2005 Donruss Leather & Lumber Big Bang JERSEY RELIC 240/250
and the yellow jersey version numbered 240/250.  Even though it's practically the same card, I like the jersey version much more mainly because the jersey swatch is in the shape of HR signifying 339 Career HRs for the Cobra.  Plus yellow fabric is always welcomed in the Treasure Room.

2010 Donruss Panini Century Collection JERSEY RELIC 69/250
The final card, which I managed to snag for less than a buck is this Panini Century Collection numbered 69/250.  I've seen different versions of this card, but again yellow fabric is always welcomed.  This particular card shows a young Dave Parker, possibly from high school.  I wish I had the autographed version of this card though.

To sum up my thoughts on these 3 cards, I leave you with this video

  1. Awesome GI Joe reference - I'm ashamed of how many quotes I remember from that movie...
