Saturday Sizemore...a white whale harpooned

My Scott Sizemore collection has really taken off lately, and the card I added most recently certainly helped. 

For quite some time, the top card on my Sizemore want list was his 2010 Bowman Gold Refractor Autograph.  None had popped up on eBay in over a year, so when one finally did, I pounced.  I may have overpaid a little, since another one popped up a week later and sold for less, but I don't care.  I had to have this card.



#48/50
This card completed my "all-but-the-1/1s" rainbow for 2010 Bowman:

Base
Gold
Blue #/520
Orange #/250
Chrome Autograph
Chrome Autograph Refractor #/500
Chrome Autograph Blue Refractor #/250
Chrome Autograph Gold Refractor #/50
Topps 100 Prospects
Futures Game Triple Relic

I need to get around to scanning my Scott Sizemore collection.

As for my current Top 10 most wanted, the 206 Old Mill Auto has moved up into the #1 spot:

1. 2010 Topps 206 Mini Framed Autographs Old Mill
2. 2010 Topps Allen & Ginter #320 Mini No Card Number
3. 2010 Topps #513 Red Border (Factory Set) #/299
4. 2010 Topps #513 Black #/59
5. 2010 Bowman Chrome #189 Red Refractor #/5
6. 2010 Topps Allen & Ginter #320 Mini Silk #/10
7. 2010 Topps Triple Threads Gold #/25
8. 2010 Topps Triple Threads Sapphire #/10
9. 2010 Topps Pro Debut Futures Game Jersey Gold #/25
10. 2010 Topps Pro Debut Futures Game Patch #/5

They will be mine.  Oh yes. They will be mine.


I also bid $0.99 on another card from the same seller to take advantage of combined shipping:


It's borderline criminal for that card to go for a buck.  I love that it specifies Game-Worn and BP-Worn.  The colors of the swatches and the card itself work great, as well.  This card has already been passed along to Dawgbones.
