I am ridiculously far behind on posting stuff, but I refuse to let this little thing I do die, so here is the rest of the COMC package I received like 2 weeks ago. One of my top 5 pick-ups of 2021, Sandy Alomar, Jr. has been in a ton of these Topps Archives Buyback releases, but I finally spotted one that featured one of his few Rockies cards. I paid $20 for this serial number 3/4 and was very happy to do so.

Check out the Rest (Jan-2022)
From "The Set I will Never Finish", one more 2011 Gypsy Queen photo variation, bringing me to 37/100.
From a set that is very much in range, but I have been dragging my ass on for 10 years now, these Luck rookies really dropped in price after his retirement, but now Russell Wilson has jumped.
A couple Bruins, the Neely is a die-cut parallel, the Marchand is an acetate featuring The Cup and Michael Hutchinson was a need for "One of Every Bruins".
Speaking of good catchers with short Rockies careers, Jonathan Lucroy from his 46 game Rockies career (and about the only way I will buy anything from Topps Gallery) , Kevin Nicholson from some Arizona Fall League set that TCDB calls a Rockies card, so I must have it, and the Vinny is just a super shiny, color-blasting Refractor that actually scanned as nice as it looks in hand.
Some Gypsy Queen short prints, including the last 3 I needed from 2017, completing that set, also a rare Expos sighting.
I love the original ENOR Hall of Fame set, but these are from the 1995 update that added cards 161-180 and are harder to find than the 1992 release, if I see them cheap enough, I will scoop them up.
A couple more from the 1995 update to finish off the post.
