A Random Smattering of New Stuff

Yeah, that's right. A smattering. We're going vintage. We're going modern. We're going autograph. We're going relic. Touching all the bases (HEY! That's a baseball metaphor!). Let's roll.

1953 Topps Harry Perkowski. This was my last non-high number need. Pretty stoked.

2014 Bowman Chrome Prospects Autographs Taylor Sparks. Just finished his second year in our farm system at age 22. There exists some promise.

2014 Topps Tier 1 Relics Tony Cingrani. There was a time when a card like this of Cingrani would've been completely unaffordable. Now it's under a buck. Que sera sera.

Cracked ice sparklies. Oooooooh.

2003 Fleer Authentix Balcony Josh Hall. So this is recessed like it's a real relic, but it's just a printed, tiny, fake ticket. I don't know why. But I bought it anyway.

20whatever Stuff. Most are colors that aren't the regular colors, thus making them rarer than the regular colors. Okay!

1980 Topps Super White Backs Johnny Bench, It's 5x7, which, apparently, is super.

2001 Donruss Class of 2001 Rookie Phenom Autographs Jose Acevedo. 54 starts and 15 relief appearances for the Reds from 2001 to 2004 followed by a year in Colorado. Shibby.

1975 Topps Mini Johnny Bench. Yesssss. I'm now only missing the Pete Rose, the Reds team card, and the Rose/Jackson MVP card. I'm positive I'll overpay for all three.

Go Reds.


  1. Whoa - haven't heard "shibby" in a hot minute.

  2. I don't know why but I bought it anyway... story of my life. Nice 75 mini!
