Some good has come from all my down time though, in that I have spent quite a bit of time going through my old photo/scan folders of mostly COMC purchases, and am happy to say that I have finally finished sorting out what will and won't be seen in future posts. I have been trying to finish doing that for months now, so it's very nice to finally be done.
With everything sorted now, I figure that if I can keep to a somewhat regular blogging schedule, I should be completely caught up with everything (which includes my recent non card acquisition's) by Christmas -- which will work out well, since that's about when my post-Black Friday COMC shipment usually arrives.
After all the sorting was completed, I found a quite a few autographs that still need to be gotten to. And although most of them were able to be grouped together (Golden Age, Heritage Real One, Star Trek, Dr. Who, and so forth), I did end up with some odds and ends, so in an effort to make things a little easier, I'm just gonna group them together as well and call it good.

Even though I still need his auto from three other sets that I'm working on, at around $5, this one was just to cheap pass up.
|2012-13 Panini Contenders Bobby Wanzer Historic Contenders Autographs #'d 72/99|
A member of both the basketball hall of fame and the college basketball hall of fame, Bobby played all of his eleven seasons in the NBA with the Rochester Royals. He was a key component during the team's 1950-51 championship season, which even after many a change in city and name (currently the Sacramento Kings), is still the only title in franchise history. He was five time All-Star, who also spent his last two seasons as a player-coach, before retiring and going on to coach the team full time for the next two years. In 1963 he signed on to coach at St. John Fisher College, a position he would hold for the next 24 years.
|2006-07 Press Pass Legends Bernard King autograph|
|2005 Topps All-Time Fan Favorites Mike Norris autograph|
To my knowledge this Mr. Norris' only officially licensed autograph, which is part of the reason I found it so appealing, it's always fun to get signatures of players that aren't in every in single release year after year.
|1997 Donruss Signature Series Mike Cameron autograph|
I was a big fan of Mike Cameron during his time with the Mariners, so I was happy to check this one off the needs list, and the under $2 price tag made it that much better.
Thanks for taking a moment to look at my page.
