Printing plate, topps now, chrome auto

These Topps now cards are going to make me broke :)

I was hoping for a bigger bubble in the photo but it is still pretty cool.

Also in the mail today were two ebay purchases.  The Tim Anderson Topps Chrome card and a Courtney Hawkins Printing plate.

Nick leyva TTM return

My minor league TTM kick in late July has brought in this card from the 2005 Knights set.  This is only my 3rd card from this set (Joining Ben Davis and Jeff Bajenaru).  I originally got a RTS as his forwarding mail expired but sent to the new address and it was a quick turnaround.

Tyler saladino TTM return

I'm a pretty big tyler saladino fan.  Glad he is staying in the majors and contributing on the south side.  

My 16 topps main set collection now has Adam LaRoche and saladino.

Mail day. New topps now card and 4 ttms


Got 4 returns today.

First one was from Ron Schueler as he signed 4 team photos from his playing/coaching days.  I sent this in February so I was getting worried about the return of these.

A while back, I got several Classic Black Gold cards from the minor league affiliate.  Kevin Coughlin is the first to return one back (8 day turnaround)

Ryan Hinchley was returned after 14 days c/o Great Falls.

I missed the Melky/Eaton Topps Now card.  This was an ebay purchase.
