2008 Razor Gordon Beckham
This was the steal of the day. I've been wanting a card of Gordon in a Dawgs uni for months, but most of them were short printed autographed nonsense that were too expensive. Now I got one for two dines. Brilliant!
2009 Topps George Sisler Turkey Red
I love the Turkey Red cards of subjects that could have plausibly been in the original set. George middes it by a few years since he debuted in 1915, but it's close enough. Sisler finished his career with the Braves (hitting over .300 all three years) so I've claimed him as a Braves even though he did his best work with the St. Louis Browns.
2009 Topps Duke Snider Ring of Honor
This card of Duke honors the Dodgers' first World Series victory in Los Angeles. Duke hit his last World Series home run against the White Sox that year. Is it just me or does his jersey look a bit green? It looks like Ted Turner colorized this card.
2009 Topps Carl Yastrzemski Legends
I can never pass up a Yaz cards when sideburns are involved.
2009 Topps Garret Anderson Turkey Red
Now that I'm home I somewhat regret not getting a few more Turkey Red cards. I can't remember which ones I had already so I probably would have ended up with a bunch of doubles. I'm happy with Garret though. He's finally back in the Braves' lineup and none too soon. Chipper can't carry the team by himself.
2009 Topps Francisco Cervelli Bleck Border #19/58
I know the card market is somewhat depressed right now, and parallel cards aren't what they used to be but twenty cents for a black border numbered to 58?? Heck, I'll take it. Thanks to injuries, Francisco is up with the big club and got his first major league hit yesterday.
2008 Topps Ichiro WBC
Any Ichiro card is good, but a WBC Ichiro in the Japan uni is better.
2008 Timelines Alexei Ramirez 2004 subset
I wasn't sure if I needed this card or not, but it turned out that I didn't have it yet. I don't mind cards from certain teams (Both Sox, Indians, Royals, Reds, Mets among others) because I know that I can get rid of them very easily.
2009 Topps American Heritage Benjamin Latrobe & Treaty of Versailles
These two cards complete my American Heritage short set. I don't have all the SPs, but I don't really need a few more variations on Obama and McCain anyway. If they come to me they'll have a home in my binder, otherwise I won't miss 'em.
Not bad for two bucks, eh? I got at least one other bargain to show off later this week.
