First Comc Mailday of 2019 (Part 1)

There were some things sitting in my account that I really wanted in hand (the previously posted Sammy Baugh coming through the mailbox program being the main one) that led to requesting a shipment without a ton of items. Starting off with some shiny gold, inspired by this post on The Collector blog I picked up some gold 2002 Pristine and wow, they are nice. More modern, but just as nice is the Gold Trevor Story from 2017 Stadium Club.

More shiny with a Legacy Collection Terry Allen and 2018 Spectra Alex Smith putting me 4/12 in the hunt for the rainbow.

A couple weird ones, remember when Keyshawn Johnson was a Redskin? Classic used to do draft prediction style cards and while neither of these guy played in Washington, I am still counting them as Redskins cards.

The other card I really wanted in-hand, Super Bowl XXII MVP Doug Williams with an on-card auto from Panini's Super Bowl Signatures set. I have kind of fallen in love with this set so expect to see more of them show up here.

I still dislike sticker autos, but this is Josh Harvey-Clemons only Redskins card so it was a need, along with Brandon Banks who is still in the middle of a pretty good CFL career.

my second oldest football card, Al DeMao from 1951 Bowman, it's amazing how nice this card still looks after almost 70 years.


  1. Sweet Doug Williams autograph! I can still remember that insane 2nd quarter he put up against the Broncos in that SB.

  2. Those gold Pristenes are so nice. I have a few from the NBA releases.

  3. I'm sorry it took me so long to read this, but those are some killer pickups! I love the gold refractors of course, but the Williams auto and Demao are fantastic too!
