Still playing catchup on some TT posts, we’ll go with this one real quick. A month or so ago I was digging through the book section at one of the local thrift stores and found a paperback book documenting Cal Ripken Jr.’s career. The book was authored by Ripken and a writer.
I’ve documented here before that I do look through the book section at stores because every now and then you’ll find a signed book. A a general rule of thumb though, I typically don’t bother with paperbacks.
Well, something made me pick this up and thumb through a few pages. And sure enough, some four pages, there’s some ink — a live Cal Ripken Jr. Autograph for less than a buck.
If my name was Matt, I’d be in heaven …
Total cost for this Thrift Treasure: 99 cents
Hit one of the local shops yesterday and was lucky enough to be there right when they opened a fresh box of 2014 Donruss Baseball. I actually intended to buy a box last week, but changed my mind this week after I essentially spent my Donruss box money on a pack of 2012 Panini Signature Series that wound up yielding a Mike Trout auto /25.
I digress. The employee agreed to sell me the box topper, and so I picked five packs to go along with it. With each box containing two autographs and a game-used relic card, I’d say I did fairly well in my packs. Here’s the loot:
I don’t do this very often. I don’t buy a lot of “high-end” products to begin with, and my history of recording box/pack breaks hasn’t exactly been all that successful. BUT this time was different. This one comes from Stevens Creek Sports Cards, in San Jose, California. Good times. Enjoy.
