    I haven't been buying much of late. Not much appeals honestly. But I did grab a couple of fairly cheap CJ's

    Another refractor

    08 Topps Chrome Bronze Refractor 329/425

    Upper Deck has a new release called Masterpieces. It's a little reminiscent of Topp Turkey Red. The player image is printed on stock that's textured to look like it's canvas. There are a bunch of different parallels... the black caught my eye (and a red is on the way)

    Some recent eBay additions...

    Kerry Collins 02 Score Originals Auto 050/100

    Finally picked up a KFC sig. These are really cool, Score bought back 100 original Score RC's of selected players had them signed and seeded them in the 2002 Score packs. The original Collins card was a 95 Score.


    William Hayes 08 Bowman Orange 025/250

    Hayes first cardboard. Congrats William! Now go kill Matt Schlob

    Chris Johnson 08 Masterpieces Red 123/199
    [​IMG]
    much redder than the black version. I'm a sucker for these oddball designs.

    Chris Johnson 08 SP Rookie Edition

    Honestly just another RC from Upper Deck, but Upper Deck did something really interesting with the 08 SP Rookie Edition set...

    In addition to the base RC (pictured above), Upper Deck issued throwback SP RC's for the rookies in the set. The design of the cards are based on the original SP Football sets from 93 through 96.

    Chris Johnson 08 SP Rookie Edition # 209

    Marshall Faulk 94 SP #3
    [​IMG]

    (The 94 Faulk and 93 Bettis are originals from my collection)

    I bought both of the 08 Johnsons based on the 1995 and 1996 SP's last night on eBay. They'll be cool because they share the same design as McNair and Eddie's RC's.... now I just have to wait on them arriving.

    Very nice stuff. Didn't know that Hayes had a card. And that KFC auto is cool, I just can't collect a guy who will be here for only this year.

    No sir. Jones has a card in the same Bowman set as the William Hayes but that's it. It's a longshot that he'll get a auto... non-first round DT's playing in Tennessee don't get much hobby love. :)

    Even the guy who leads the Titans to the Super Bowl? :) Get one now before the prices soar.

    :smile:

    Nicely done Ahab. Beautiful card. Get it out of that old top loader and into the "one touch" it deserves.

    The Collins? $9 (it's one of his pricier sigs)

    You'll have a better Finnigan collection than me :)
