Christmas Wrap Up-Day 3- Willinghammer Edition

Looking at more of my Christmas treats. Next up is the Willinghammer!  Josh had a very good first half but not as good in the second. Didn't stop me from picking up a passel of #'d cards which are going in my ever-growing Willingham binder. Picked those up at COMC on Black Friday. The beautiful jersey in the scan didn't come via purchase. It was a gift from my buddy Spiegel!  Frickin' Awesome Bro.

Christmas 2012 Wrap UP-Day 2-1969 Topps Explosion

I am chasing the 1969 Topps set sort of... I originally set out to work on this set only via trades but I have found that to be very difficult sledding. I have recently decided that I will put some green into completing this set. So I hit up COMC on the black friday promotion and picked up a slew that I needed!  I need to get together a have or need list. In the meantime, if you have any 1969's that you don't need hit me up!

Christmas Wrap Up-Day 1-Cardinals GU and Autos

I'm an Arizona Cardinal fan! Don't repeat that aloud.  I wouldn't want anyone to look at you like you've lost your marbles!  I always love to receive Cards GU and Auto's even if my team makes me want to slam my head into the wall sometimes. I picked up these beauts over Christmas. I believe these came courtesy of my buddies Spiegel and Fuji!  Happy Holidays and Thanks Gentleman!
All are great but woo hoo that Boston Auto is on card and it is awesome!

Wishing you a Redus-riffic Christmas!

Here's hoping the best for you and all your families this Christmas DAY!

I want to send out many thanks to my friends in the blogging and trading communities who helped me celebrate Christmas this year with great cards. I will try to showcase them as the days and weeks go by.  Until then, a special Merry Christmas to Spiegel, Zakwin, Brett, Negron, Whitney, Fuji, Uncle Moe, Average Joe Collector, Bo, and to anyone else whom I may have missed! MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Tune in later if you wish as I will be announcing an upcoming trade bait draft for all that are interested. Cost will be low at $8 a slot and there are gonna be some sweet goodies in the pot.
