I decided to put the needs of others before my own desires, and have no regrets-other than some aching muscles. When I got home, there was a package in the mail from Check Out My Cards-which helped with missing out on the show. Plus, I still have some funds in my paypal account. I'll do some more 'shopping' tonight.
Here's a few of the cards that were in the mail today.
2003 Topps Heritage "Grandstand Glory" #GG-EM Eddie Mathews
2008 Topps Heritage "Then & Now" #TN1 Eddie Mathews & Alex Rodriguez
2008 Topps Heritage "Baseball Flashbacks" #BF10 Eddie Mathews
1994 Topps #316 Prospects: Ogea, Brumley, Michalak, Wade
1995 Topps #316 Prospects: Wade, Acevedo, Arrandale, Priest
1997 Topps #239 Jermaine Dye, #455 Andruw Jones
I've been looking for these four cards for some time now- they are four of only a handful of post-'77 Topps base cards that I'm needing for my team sets.
Terrell Wade was a guy that I thought was going to be the next great stud on that vaunted pitching staff. While he didn't have a horrible career, he certainly didn't meet expectations that many of us had for him (isn't that usually the case?). He appeared in 59 regular season games for Atlanta, 17 of which were starts. Tampa Bay chose him in the 1997 expansion draft, and he made 2 major league appearances for them in '98-the last two games of his major league career.
