No TTM responses the last couple of days which is fine – many of the outstanding requests are some of the tougher signers out there so I will keep my fingers crossed and hope to be fortunate moving forward.
Was able to make a trade with a new contact on SCN recently. Sent him over a handful of 1987 Topps traders and picked up this lot for my 1989 Topps side project.
Mark Lemke, Zane Smith Sandy Alomar Jr and Gregg Olson – nice additions.
Another member on SCN hosted a big signing of Brewers alum. I am trying to be judicial when spending money on acquisitions as the original intent was not to spend any money however as I get further along it is becoming necessary. I was able to pick up a fairly large chunk of cards here for less that $10 per all in. Lets walk through them shall we.
Charlie Moore – knocked two off the 1987 project (unfortunately, I put the package together quickly and failed to notice there is a 1987 Topps Traded I need as well…bummer). Oh well, two from the 1987 set, one from 1984 and one from 1985 added.
Pile of scans to go through here – doubled up on the 1987 for Jim Slaton as I picked him up in the SCN draft. Good trader to have as well as a couple additional cards. Gorman Thomas (nice to get one Mariner card in the mix) and Moose Haas lots as well.
The big two pickups from the signing are as follows:
For the price I couldn’t say know to Rollie Fingers. He dotted the I right on his mouth which kind of looks odd when you look at a quick glance but sharp looking card.
And end on this beauty from Robin Yount – price was higher than the others but still reasonable for a Hall of Famer. Very nice addition to the set.
That puts me at 507 total autos for the 1987 Topps TTM set and we keep moving forward. Until next time.
