Some New Auto's for the Rollie Collection

Got a couple more Autos of the Rollster in the mail today off of ebay. 

I love collecting Rollie cards simply there are some cool cards and it seems like I get them super cheap.

The first one is this.

It's a 1990 Swell by Impel cards hand signed.  The seller didn't have a story to go with the card but a nice sig non the less.  And I got it for a buck plus shipping.  I didn't even have this card unsigned so a nice cheap addition.

And second is this.

It's a 2005 Ultimate Signatures Edition on card auto. 
I paid 5 bucks for this one.  I guess it's not numbered but a nice card and sig all together.

until next time

I'm shameless yep and the rest of you are too. But I'll take 3 extra entries into any contest when they're this easy. JD's dad over at JD's Wildcardz is having an olymipic contest. There are still a ton of spots left so go over there follow the link and you may want to check the current list of available numbers. Sounds like there will be lots of kewl swag.

I suppose for every player collector there are certain cards that are holy grails.  It might be that super limited rare Refractor auto numbered 1/1, but more often then not it's just the player's  basic rookie card or cards.  Lucky for me Rollie only has one rookie card.  Not like some of my other collected players. 
I've been biding my time waiting to get a Rollie Rookie.  I didn't want a graded one, at least not yet, and I didn't want just some junk card to say I had it and i didn't want to pay through the nose for it.   Well finally I got my prize. 

Nice corners, clean both front and back, descent centering.  And I paid 11 bucks for it so not to shabby. 

I have to say for rookie cards this one is terrible, but not as bad as Paul Molitor's/Alan Trammell rookie.


Now I still just need that one other rookie from 1969 that I like.  Mr. Jackson I'm coming for you!!!

New Additions and another bar in the Rollie Rainbow.

Well I've been silent on the ole Rollie blog for a while.  Waiting for stuff to arrive and just being lazy I guess.  But I'm back and I've got 3 great "new" cards to add the ole collection to boot!

First we have my newest addition to the 2009 Topps Tribute Rainbow.  After I got one of the printing plates I decided to try and get all the refractors too.  And I snagged the red 1/1 last week!! I'll be putting it up as soon as I get it.  Now all I need are the gold and regular to complete the rainbow.  There is still one printing plate that hasn't been posted on ebay so that might turn up.  I ended up missing the last printing plate because I had to be somewhere and didn't bid high enough. 

Next I got this beauty.

2009 UD Goudey 4 in 1 black parallel numbered 9/21.  Also featuring Jack Morris, Gaylord Perry, and Jim Palmer.  Would you believe I snagged this for a penny?  Yep it's true.  Well plus shipping of course but damn a penny.
And finally I just got this in the mail today.

Yep it's a 1999 UD Retro On card auto of the Rollster hiimself.  This is a level 1 unnumbered auto but still pretty sweet.  This is a love/hate card.  The love part is the auto is terrific, slanted the card is in mint shape.  the hate.  Look at the teeny tiny photo they use, is that an upper deck hat he's wearing? yep.  And the photo's in black and white. 

Well that's all for now.
