Tony Sanchez made a very memorable catch a couple weeks ago and I went a little aggressive with my Tony Sanchez purchases off COMC since all the cards were very cheap.
|2009 Tristar Prospects AUTO 71/199|
The above 6 cards all ran me a total less than $7.
Looking at all these vintage style cards make me want to show off some actual vintage? Want to see it....
The only card I need now from the 1970 Topps Pirates team set is #551 Dock Ellis. The Matty Alou All-Star card in the center is really neat looking. I included the back above to show as well. All three cards above cost me $2.20
I also grabbed 3 Jameson Taillon cards totalling $2.28.
First up your standard Bowman Platinum. Nothing fancy here, just your average base card. The back of the card talks about how Jamo through 5 scoreless in his AA debut. I attended that game and sat next to a few other Pirates fans. It was a blast seeing Jamo deal and dominate in his AA debut at age 20.
Next up is a Team USA Panini card of the young right hander who participated in the 18 and under play against Team Cuba.
On the back of the card it talks about how Taillon struck out 16 Cubans in 7.2 innings.
showed off earlier in the year.
One of my main reasons for making the purchase was that I wanted to add to my Andrew McCutchen tobacco sized mini collection. I grabbed 4 minis for $3.08. The Allen & Ginter is the A&G back.
Speaking of Andrew McCutchen I also grabbed 2 more rookie cards from Upper Deck that have eluded me far too long.
First is the cheaper card, 2009 Signature Stars. This ran me $2.25
Finally is the 2012 Panini Prizm Team USA card which cost me $0.49.
