COMC December 2018 Video mailday

Something I have wanted to do for a while and finally got around to doing, a video post. The sound sucks and the focus goes in and out, but I already started putting stuff away so it's too late to go back. Presented as is.

10 From Sportlots

2015 Gypsy Queen for some reason has been a huge pain to finish. I finished 2016 a long time ago and other than maybe 2011 no other set has given me as much grief. A quick sportlots search took me a little closer. For some reason these short prints have a high asking price most places, but these we all 50 cents a piece, a total no-brainer at that price. This plus another order leave me just 4 shy.

Night of the Living Set

My first dip into the another of Topps On-Demand sets, these have been getting a lot of hype around the hobby and when the chance to get both of these for a reasonable price I couldn't resist. First impressions are that these are nice, better in-hand than scans to justice, which is weird for neo-vintage, usually it's the shiny stuff that I am saying that about. I may not be a full convert, but I will definitely try to pick up any Rockies or other players that catch my interest.

A Great Cardboard Trade

This is why trading is so great, I bought some 2018 Update, didn't get anything I really wanted, but was able to start a trade with Cardboard Greats and turn some Red Sox into some keepers, including the above, about 75 Gypsy Queen needs from a set that I total myself I wasn't collecting, but probably lied.
