The gift for this past Father's Day (from my wife) is a perfect example of what I'm talking about.
As you can see, my beloved even let me pick the store and without any mentioning of price limit- just to "please spend responsibly." Alrighty, then!
My shopping spree on COMC.com began with some new Chippers:
Boxtopper- with not one, not two, but THREE of my favorite players!!! How could I pass this one up?
Is that blood on that swatch? I don't think so- but it doesn't hurt to pretend.
Another Turkey Red. Looks like Chip's about to adjust his cup right here. Heh.
Been wanting this one for quite some time- love these A&G box toppers. Only wish I had a sheet protector that these fit in nicely.
My second UD Masterpieces of Larry Legend- this one from 2007. One of the greatest brands of all-time!!!
Let's move on...
I decided to include a few from older O-Pee-Chee sets. You know the ones. They include "Now with (insert team name)", feature the logo and/or team name but include a photo with the player in his previous team's uniform. Must have for any team set collectors.
Finally, what would a spending spree be without some Murph's?!!!
Though she doesn't read the blog, I want to thank my bride for the opportunity to pick up some newbies for an affordable price. I'd like to think that I held to my end of the bargain (responsible spending).
