National Was Awesome - Part 2, The Beginning...
Here I am again in part 2 of my National recap. This blog will focus on my favorite pick ups from National. I was able to fill several sets, and pick up some sweet singles also, but these are the cream of the g/u and auto crop. Enjoy
Every now and then I like to dip and dab into some NBA greats. I love the Murad Bill Walton Jersey. The Ainge card has a part of the Boston Garden Parquet floor, and the Hakeem is /50. Oh yeah, how could I possibly pass up on a dual Miggy for only $2??? the four cards above cost me only $17.
This is some local flavor. I love on card autos, but stickers do not really bother me. The Roberts is a sticker and so is the Zimmerman (duh). The Markakis is an on card auto that I bought from a dealer I see all the time doing the local shows. Markakis is my favorite (active) player, so there is no way I was passing up on this one. The Frank Robinson is such a sweet card, instantly one of my favorites in my collection.
Antonio Gates, 3 color patch, I just liked it, so I bought it. Love me some Cowboy/Raven Cunningham (there is also an Anthony Wright patch on the other side...wonder what ever happened to him). As an alum of ASU and a Ravens fan (they are my #2) I was diggin on the Suggs card. And Deion is one of my all time favorite players. The greatest cover corner EVER, there is no argument! The card is a 3 color cut from the sleeve, and the best part is, it is a card of him as a Redskin (wearing a Cowboys uniform and a Cowboys swatch)!
The Largent card just reminded me of what i looked like catching footballs back in my High school days. I did not have a black g/u of Ochocinco...now I do.
So here's my deal. I am a baseball and football Card collector. I have a hockey card here and there and I look for great deals on the 50 greats NBA players of all time.
I am a fan of The Orioles, Phillies, Cowboys, Ravens, Flyers, and Capitals.
My heroes are Nick Markakis, Bill Bates, Derrick Mason, Emmitt Smith, Ray Rice, Brooks and Frank Robinson, Jason Witten, Adam Jones...etc....
