COMC Red Friday - Part 2/2

First off, of course, go vote in the current leg of the finals brackets in the Mega Stupid Tournament.

Second off, here's Part 1 of COMC Red Friday.

Alright alright alright. Saw some good stuff a couple days ago from COMC's Black Friday shenanigans. Today is the remainder of the $30 purchase. Let's start with the autos.

2002 Fleer Showcase Sweet Sigs Lumber Jackson Melian #'d/815. Melian spent 13 years in the Minors without making it to The Show. But his was an autograph I didn't have and this is a style of card I also didn't have. Pretty sweet lookin' card.

2012 Bowman Sterling Autographs Nicholas Travieso. Travieso spent 2012 in the Reds' Rookie League and 2013 at Single-A Dayton. Here's hoping a fast climb up the ranks.

2012 Elite Extra Edition Prospects Autographs Tanner Rahier #'d/612. Same as Travieso, Rahier spent 2012 in the Rookie League and 2013 on the Single-A Dayton Dragons. I'd like to see both of 'em on the big boy roster by 2017.

2006 Topps '52 Signatures Bill Bray. Bray spent 6 years in middle relief for the Reds. I was always a fan of his for no reason in particular. We released him after 2012 and he spent 2013 in Washington's minor league. RC Autos are nice.

Since vintage commons prices were being slashed by tons of dealers, I took the opportunity to replace a bunch of cards that had been sent out for autographs. My autos are in their own binder, so the holes in the Topps team set binders needed filled. All 12 of these were technically ruined by the players on the cards. So I had to bring in a second copy. About $8.50 for the dozen. Not bad.

Finished off the purchase with three modern serial numbered cards just because I like them. 2013 Topps Museum Collection Copper Joe Morgan #'d/424, 2008 Upper Deck Spectrum Orange Adam Dunn #'d/399, and 2011 Gypsy Queen Framed Paper Scott Rolen #'d/999. Good lookin'.

Well there ya go. Not bad for a blaster and a half. Go Reds.
