...it's finally mine.
I have wanted this card ever since the curator of natscards (don't go to the site now, it's covered in casino crap) pulled it from a retail pack in the fall of 2010. Unfortunately, I was slightly late to the party as Joe from The Sandlot had already made a deal for it. Sure, David has tons of autos out there that I could have gone after. I wanted this one; a 2005 Topps Autograph. It's on-card, it's blue, and he's rocking the orange jersey. I bid on some, but never won.
That is, until recently. This card showed up on eBay and the bidding stayed low enough that I had a chance. As time ran out, I was still on top. After nearly 3 years of wanting this card, it's mine.
Dave was the last PC auto I needed. The framework of my collection is now complete.
