Football Frankenset - July 2019 Pickups

029 - 1998 Skybox Premium - Dwayne Rudd

There have been some tough choices so far, this was not one of them, I really doubt anything will displace Dwayne Rudd with an actual Vikings helmet.

Check Out My Redskins (July 2019)

By far, my most exciting packages are from COMC. Months of collecting all wrapped into one big parcel to open, scan and sort. I have been going for quality over quantity, so not a lot in terms of volume but some really nice stuff, including the 2 above Super Bowl Signatures. These two of Gary Clark and Darrell Green put me up to 5 out of 8 Redskins, with the search continuing for Charles Mann (a cheap one at at least), Joe Theismann and John Riggins.

Hide Your Cat For This Trade

I'm going to bury the lead a little here and start with a couple Rockies, a super shiny Saberhagen and a Zero-Year Rudy Seanez who would pitch in 544 MLB games, but none with Colorado.

Johnny Boychuk: Bruins Stanley Cup Auto

Two things here, yes this project is still not done, and yes, I am still very upset I didn't get to add to checklist this year. Who wanted to buy a bunch of 2019 Stanley Cup Champion Bruins cards anyway?

Johnny Boychuk never did get a certified auto in a Bruins uniform, so this one with a giant Bruins logo and an Avs jersey will have to do. Not an expensive card, but one that really hasn't shown up very often, and finally something I can remove from my saved searches.

Good things comes in 3's

Unfortunately due to high International shipping costs I have to turn down a trade every so often, sometimes it is just not worth even a PWE for a couple junk wax cards both ways, but this 3 card trade was totally for it. One of my favorite parallels, the 2014 Topps Red Hot Foil, or Raining Blood parallel of a pre-beard Charlie Blackmon.

Football Frankenset - June Pickups

Only 4 adds this month (next month will be better) so I will add some that I already had before the project began. 

025 - 1996 Pinnacle - Jerry Rice:
The second Jerry Rice card so far, reminding us all how great Pinnacle was in the 90's. You hardly so inserts this cool anymore, let alone base cards
