Still alive and kickin'!

Despite the total absence of posting in the last months, I am still deeply into collecting.

All I've done in the last months was pick up cards from either ebay or comc to beef-up my collection, and when I say "collection" I obviously refer to the set that's been draining all my time (and money) recently... obviously 2013 Topps Tribute WBC!

You can keep track of the progress made in this set in the two dedicated pages...
But obviously the more you have, the more you want, and at the same time the more they cost you, so it's getting tougher everyday to find new cards to add...

So I sometimes picked up new and cool (in my opinion) cards, in some cases depicting old-timers, and in other cases simply eye appealing cards...

Here below are some examples of the cards that arrived recently

Sticking to the theme of WBC, this year Italy started the tournament very well (surprisingly) defeating Mexico... unofrtunately the tournament had not many more satisfactions for the Italian team, but Topps celebrated the epic won match with a dedicated card in the 2017 Topps Now set

That's the only card I have from the Topps Now product, and I have to admit that looks pretty cool

The next card is an old-timer themed card, it depicts one of the Pittsburg Pirates all-time legends, and is the first non-base card I have of him.
Here's a 2003 Donruss Signature Series autographed card of Ralph Kiner

I am not a huge fan of these silver stickers, but since this one comes with an inscription, I am not going to complain! Also the card is numbered to 200!

Unofrtunately I am no longer able to update this blog from work, since blogspot has been added to the banned websites, and the last months have also been very busy and stressful at work, so here's explained the lack of posts.

After several months of serching everywhere in Italy, I picked up (from a US seller on ebay) a bundle of 25 monster boxes to slowly re-organize my collection, that has been slowly coming back from the garage to the "man cave".
I also bought from the same seller a case of 100 magnetics (130 pt thick) to properly store all my patch cards from 2013 Tribute WBC.
The next step would be finding a case of mags also for the autographed cards, but I think they look well also in the current toploaders...

I'll try to post more often in the coming months, promise!

Also, in August I'll spend a couple weeks in NYC and I plan to visit at least twice the White Plains card show, as well as the city LCS, so my collection will hopefully grow in size and quality, so stay tuned!

Keep collecting!
