Another Framed Kershaw? Yes Please...


This was a redemption that kept alluding me, but I finally found one on e-bay last month and quickly made my offer.  After some back and forth countering, I got the deal done.  It took about a month to get this from Topps, and after inspecting the card, I quickly realized the mistake I had made.  In my haste to get one of these, I didn't realize that the gold framed isn't numbered out of /25.  I assumed that because the black frame was /10, the gold frame was numbered too.  Unfortunately I totally overpaid for this unnumbered card.  I definitely prefer the gold frame over a black frame, but I'm mad at myself for not taking the time to see that the gold frames were the standard release for this product.  Even with the overpay, I love this card, and I'm glad I was able to add it to my collection:

It's Kkkkkkershaw Time

I am super excited for the season to start, but unlike the "experts," I think the Dodgers are going to have their hands full with the West this year.  D-Backs and Rockies will definitely be better this year, and those pesky Giants always seem to make life difficult for the Dodgers.  I still predict the playoffs this year, but I'm just not so sure the Dodgers will be as dominant as people are saying.  One guy I KNOW will be his usual dominant self, is Mr. Kershaw.  I haven't posted much lately, but I wanted to show off a few of my most recent e-bay purchases as well as some redemptions.  I hope you enjoy, and GO DODGERS!

A New Year and a Living Legend

I took a little vacation from posting on my blog, and I couldn't think of a better card to kick start 2017.  I decided to majorly slow down on the amount of $ I spend on cards, but I just couldn't resist adding an auto of a living legend.  I won an auction for this redemption a few months ago, and knowing that the card was live, I was hoping the wait wouldn't be too long.  I can't wait for baseball season, as I feel that the Dodgers will once again have a shot at winning it all.  But there will be a giant void left by the absence of the man in the booth.  Here he is:
