As everyone knows, when it rains, it pours! I recently posted a "want ad" on eBay that might have paid off. I was contacted by a couple of individuals regarding Justin Duchscherer cards on my list. Just a few days ago, I won the Justin Duchscherer 2005 Topps Magenta Printing Plate 1/1! I'm excited to add another printing plate to the collection. I'll post a scan when it arrives. Further, another card I need for my non-1/1 collection has been posted on eBay! I hope to win that card in the coming days, too. I just can't believe that I may be adding 14 new cards to my Justin Duchscherer collection over the next 7-10 days. Just when I thought my leads had dried up, my patience was rewarded!
I also had my first 1951 Bowman mailday courtesy of my friend Erik ("Keysey Soze" on FreedomCardboard)! He surprised me with a few pickups from the Houston Tri-Star show last weekend. You can see the lot I received from him here. I also purchased another lot of 1951 Bowman cards on eBay. I now have 24 of the 324 cards in the set. They are beautiful cards, and it is going to be a blast putting that set together over the coming years! Here are some pics of my 1951 Bowman collection ( #1 #2 #3 #4 ). I should be shipping some cards from CheckOutMyCards shortly, so I'll have some cards to inventory while I take it a little easier next month. What an amazing end to January!
