Yeah, Of Course I Still Collect

I've slacked big time since moving from Chicago in taking the time to show off recent PC acquisitions. So I thought I'd give you a look at some of the things I've picked up over the last couple months.

One of my all-time favorite box-toppers, comes from my favorite collecting year of the last twelve, 2005. You may remember when Upper Deck purchased the rights to the famed Wingfield Classic Collection. The collection of black and white photos consisted of some never before seen images. Packed out as a 5"x7" in Sweet Spot Classic, this one of two Chicago greats, was a pleasure to add to my collection.

Wizard World Ohio was a couple of weeks ago in Columbus and I made the track down there. Very small compared to other shows but I did manage to run into one of my favorite sports card artists, Brian Kong, and picked up these two sketch cards

Isn't that just A-W-E-S-O-M-E!! Makes for a killer Halloween costume too. I don't care what anybody says, the Dark Knight is one of my favorite all time movies and Heath Ledger's Joker was amazing.

If I ever see a single color jersey swatch in a trading card again it will be too soon. That is one of the reasons why I L-O-V-E the ring top cards in Topps 2012 Update, so I just had to get the ones for the two players I collect.

My guilty pleasure (at least one of them) is being a fan of female wrestling and as of late the IMPACT Wrestling Knockout's roster has been blowing away the WWE Divas and while none of these four ladies step into the square circle anymore (or rarely), these are two of my favorite redheads on the planet and two brunettes I always appreciated. I can't believe I paid just $9 total for both of them.

More to come later . . .
