I am a week behind on this, which I apologize for, but here are the Birthday Presents that @gmccarthy sent along in our trade for the Lamar Jackson autograph.
Kicking off this post are two Project2020 cards. Last year I didn't have any interest in these cards whatsoever, but as I have added a few to my collection, I am beginning to be a fan. With the Jeter and McGwire adds, I now have 4 of the P2020 cards in my collection with no plans of moving any of them. If anything, I would like to add to them. Especially with 2 I really want off from my Top 20 list in the Project 2020 #199 Don C Mariano Rivera and the Project 2020 #383 Don C Derek Jeter.
Up next, a Donruss Junior rookie. I lost track of how many of these I have in my Griffey PC but I never get tired of seeing them.
LT! New card for my Giants collection.
Lamar Jackson pink Mosaic. This product brought the bling and I believe this is my first Jackson parallel from it.
And to end, a Darius Slayton autograph. This is also a Slayton autograph I didn't have.
Big thanks goes out to @gmccarthy for the birthday gifts. Even though this was our first time talking and our first trade, you nailed it all around with the gifts and trade. Thanks so much! I really hope to trade with you again.
Also if you haven 't traded with him, look at how well it went for me. I suggest you give him a trade!
There's not much I am going to say about today's post as the pictures of these cards speak for themselves.
I was reminded back at the end of 2020 how awesome and amazing the Fleer Metal sets were from 1996-1998 and that reminder led me to seek out any and all of the cards I could get my hands onto regardless of sport.
My buddy @CardpocalypseNC and I pulled off a trade where he included a good amount of Fleer Metal cards.
So, even though my writing in today's article is short, I think the images will say enough.
I could stare at these all day. I can't wait to add more.
Thanks again to Tim on the Metal cards and my apologies for taking so long to post about them!
Despite having well over 6,000 different NY Giants cards and plenty of autographs that takes up that number, there are still some players I don't have signatures of that were pretty easy to acquire.
Take Chris Calloway for example. Pretty affordable, talented but forgot about Giants Wide Receiver who led the team in receiving from 95-98.
Calloway began his career for the Pittsburgh Steelers and played two years there before going to the Giants via Free Agency. That's where he played his 7 best years of football before he ended his career on one year deals with the Falcons and Patriots. Will be honest I didn't know about him being with the Patriots.
I can finally knock Calloway off from my needs list after picking up this card from Burbank Sportcards Beckett Marketplace for $3. I also used 15Burbank and saved myself 10% off. I recommend you do the same.
