My eBay wins have been dwindling lately. Not that they're really ever terribly voluminous. I search for autos under two bucks and parallels under fifty cents. No big money transactions. No bidding wars. Just cheap stuff no one else wants. This is the zen of Red Cardboard. I've got two autos and one parallel for your eyeballs this day.
2008 Upper Deck Goudey Autographs Aaron Harang. Nice lookin' card. Eight years with Cincy, including a league-leading strikeout year in 2006. And look out for a sneaky Ken Griffey Jr. appearance. I'm terrified that someday I'm going to decide to collect every Goudey card with Griffey's face on it since he's wearing a Reds cap. That will be a scary day.
2008 Bowman Draft Picks and Prospects Blue Chris Valaika #'d/399. Valaika got into 33 games for the Reds from 2010-2011. Then spent some time with the Marlins and spent last year with the Cubs. Currently a free agent.
2013 Bowman Autographs Orange Kurtis Muller #'d/250. Drafted in 2010 by the Reds and spent three years in our farm system before apparently retiring from organized ball in 2012. Clearly he'll make a comeback, take the majors by storm, and this card will be worth $1,000 someday. Can't wait.
