AFL consignment return

Didn't do a whole lot of consignments for the AFL but am glad to get these two back signed.

Engel had a breakout season in Arizona.  Looking forward to seeing what he can do in 2016.  Wendelken was just traded for Lawrie and looks to be potential in the majors this year.


Trade returns.

These are from 2 different trades.  Definitely glad to add these to my collection and am always looking to trade my non-White Sox cards for White Sox cards.

Greg Pryor private signing


I had some cards I sent to Mr. Pryor in 2013 and they never came back.  I decided a private signing would be my best way to get these done.  They came out great.

 

Ttm return...875 days later.

I began doing TTM in July of 2013 as I had a bunch of cards and thought it would be cool to get some signed.  I sent a bunch of stuff that first month and was hoping to get 50 percent return.  I sent this card to Mr. Contreras when he was playing in Pawtucket on July 29th, 2013.  It came back today...shocked and thrilled to see this come back.

I saw him pitch a couple of times when he was on the South Side.  In 2006 when he was on his hot streak of consecutive starts without a loss, I saw him pitch against the Twins Liriano and although the Sox lost, it was a great game.   

As of last year, he was still pitching.  I talked to him a bit at SoxFest and was preparing to pitch in Tijuana that year.

Jeff Samardzija trade


The end of the school year is always hectic.  I forgot that a member of SCF was looking to finish his 2015 Topps Update set.  Although he didn't have any cards that I needed, he did have a Photo Variation and a Rainbow Foil Jeff Samardzija card for 15 Topps Update cards.

Thanks!

D.J. Carrasco return


Was happy to get this cards back as it was out on consignment for almost a year.  I was a big fan of his as he was playing on the South Side.

Joey Cora signing.

Extremely happy to get these back.  Joey Cora is a hard person to get so this was a big add to these photos.

This probably marks the end of sending these two items through the mail.  Hoping to get Carl Everett at SoxFest this year.

Another trade.

Been getting some new things due to trades.  If you currently don't use www.zistle.com to catalog your cards, I  highly recommend it.  I have received some good cards through the users of the site.

I was about to reject the trade as it involved a 2014 Topps Variation of Jose Abreu but since I have two, I went for it.  The item I was most excited about was this Tommy John coin.  This is the first coin I have in my collection but I really like it.


Also got some other cards that I didn't have in my collection, including a couple of varion cards (DeWayne Wise, Gavin Floyd, Alexei Ramirez, Adrian Nieto, Simon Castro, Josh Phegley)

2015 Micah Johnson Topps Chrome auto

Micah was one of my first TTM returns I got when I started collecting again in 2013.  I also was able to meet him at SoxFest 2014 and he signed a ball for my daughter when the Knights played the Indians.  As a fellow Hoosier from central Indiana, I will also root for him to do well.
