Wednesdays with Willingham courtesy of a Super Trader

I'm really excited to see all the buzz surrounding the Super Traders group!  Can't wait to see the maildays start coming in for everyone.

But today is Wednesday and it's time to showcase some new Willinghammer pickups.  These came courtesy of fellow supertrader Mr Great Scott aka Bob Walk the Plank.  Matthew is simply one of the best no matter what your criteria.  He wowed me with this one!

Great Scott started out innocently enough with just a Bowman cracked ice and then the insanity begins!
 My Willingham auto binder is going to be swelling!
 Love both of those dual autos and that leather has held its auto very nicely. Beautiful patch on that SPX
 This one is a very crisp and clean design
Simply a stunning amazing patch!!  Gorgeous! 

You've done it again my friend.  Now it's on me to even our score.  Luckily...I've been preparing.

A Pretty Big Redus Event

Cheers to everyone for jumping on board with the Super Traders.  Today, though, I want to share something special that has arrived here at the jaybarkerfan headquarters.

I've talked many times before about my Gary Redus collection and why I collect him.  Let's take a look at something I was lucky enough to pull together.

This is Redus Base Card from Tristar Obak
 This is the Redus Autograph from Obak.  I can't tell you how blown away when I found out that he had been included as an auto subject.
 These are the four printing plates for the base cards
And these are the four printing plates for the autograph cards
 At first I was skeptical that these might not be legitamite
But after doing some research I discovered that the printing plates were most likely not inserted into packs and these seemed like a go.  The only hold up was they were kind of pricey but the seller worked with me and finally these magical Redus'es have splashed down here!  Very glad to have them!

Thanks for reading! Have a Redusriffic Day!

Willingham Wednesday on a Friday

Hope everyone is having a great week!  Missed my weekly Willingham post on Wednesday so I'm here to share another COMC Willinghammer Mailday. Enjoy!

 A pair of Polar Bear Autos
 4 More for my most plentiful Willingham set
 Nice Heroes Charcoal #'d to 50
 Double Vision
 JWill by the Letter
 A Very Nice Ultimate Dual Swatch with Pinstripes #'d to 35

Actually I also received my best Willingham mailday ever this week. It came courtesy of fellow SUPERTRADER Bob Walk(Shocker).  Matt always swings a heavy hammer.  Can't wait to share the kindness that he sent my way!

Be sure and get those SUPERTRADER addresses in to myself or PATP.  Until next time take it easy!
