The three cards being shown here all came from my post COMC back Friday stash that accumulated very quickly between the end of the sale to about the middle of January. This was due in large part to a few sellers having what could basically be called "going out of business" sales during that time, and me being fortunate enough to see them before they were cannibalized by the other sellers. And since I had a free shipping credit thanks to a black Friday scratch off, there wasn't any reason to wait until the free shipping that is available during the spring cleaning sale.
Until now I haven't shown any of the cards that were acquired during the above mentioned time frame, mostly just because it seems like there is always something more recent to get to. I will mention too, like I always do with anything that comes from COMC, that these were bought with credit earned from doing challenges on the site. Which over the last couple of years, has afforded me quite a few cards that I normally wouldn't have been able to get.
Alright, enough of the buildup. Let's get to these bulletproof beauties:
1972-73 Topps Julius Erving #255:
1957 Topps Ernie Banks #55:
1958 Topps Pee Wee Reese #375:
Since these were all bought to fill set needs, I had originally intended to free them once they arrived. Especially since I'm a binder person and these obviously aren't going to be fitting into pages. But now after having them for a couple of months, I have decided to leave them in their cases for the time being. The reason behind this change of plans is that I can't help thinking I might come across one (or all) of them cheap and in a similar or better condition, and I could then sell the graded versions for a profit (hopefully).
Thanks for taking a moment to look at my page.
