My Top Acquisitions of 2014

With the end of a year, there are always two things, a chance to look back at the year that was, and lists. Here is a combination of these two things with my top acquisitions of 2014. These are in a sort of order ending with my most favorite, but I decided not to number them as my order would change if I tried to to this again.

2013 Topps Museum Collection Framed Museum Collection Autographs Gold Wilin Rosario - My feels toward Rosario as a baseball player have soured, and he will most likely not be with Colorado when 2015 opens, but there Topps does that is as nice as the Museum Collection metal framed autographs. Scans in now way do these cards justice, they are just amazing.

Zistle Trade #35

A smaller zistle trade of that cards that came from Los Angeles to the frozen Canadian winter. As someone who appreciates a nice set of sideburns, this Eddie Murray card goes into the sideburn Hall of Fame, first ballot. The same photo was re-used for his stadium club card this year, one I still have to track down. Rob Brantly for the catcher collection, and another chef card.

My Black Friday COMC Rundown

2008 Upper Deck Masterpieces [???] #CC9 - Chris Cooley - Courtesy of
While I definitely did not go overboard this year, I picked up a few cool things worthy of showing off. Starting with a card bought a few days before, a 2008 Upper Deck Masterpieces Chris Cooley, while not a fan of relics, I was sold on this card mostly because of the "21" Sean Taylor patch on the photo and Cooley being one of the last Redskins I actually liked from when the team was just not very good, and not the hot stinking dumpster fire it is now.
