Ellis Burks 1998 Donruss Signature
The "things to post" folder is getting pretty empty waiting for a few packages that are expected to arrive until next week, so I will take the time to show off a recent purchase from COMC. This was the only Burks certified auto until 2013 Topps Archives and 2013 Hometown Heroes (Beckett lists a dual auto with Dante Bichette in Pastime, but I have been looking for one since it came out and am almost sure the card was never made). A nice on-card auto, and while Beckett lists the card limited to 900 copies, mine is number 922. I would assume this is actually limited to 1000 as this is the Millennium version, with there being a century version limited to 100.
