Recent Pickups!

It's been a long while since I've done a Pickups post, since I spent most the last couple of months busting tons of baseball. Now that the dust has settled, I got back on the EBay train and picked a few cards to add to the collection. Here they are!

2017 Topps Chrome Aaron Judge Sepia Refractor RC

I knowwww the Aaron Judge train has derailed in record setting pace, but I still think he'll be a good player, maybe not Babe Ruth, but still solid. I just really like the look of the Sepia refractors and it's a  card I was hoping to pull myself. I overpaid, but regardless, I still love the look of this card.

2017 Topps Chrome Alex Bregman Purple Refractor Autograph RC (#62/250)

I'm a horrible talent evaluator  when it comes to baseball (Chip Canon anyone) so there's a good chance this will be one of those "can't believe I paid this much" purchases but I really like the Astros young nucleus of hitters and this Bregman Auto Chrome Refractor (which I LOVE) costs me less than $50. I'm a sucker for Topps Chrome so I was happy to win it!

2017 Topps Heritage Autographs Bret Hart (#7/99)

Yep a little wrestling to add to my collection. I've been wanting to add a Bret Hart auto to my collection for YEARS and they aren't expensive, but just never got around to it until now. I targeted this one because I LOVE the 87 Topps Design, it's on card, and he signed it with his "Hitman" nickname. A great looking card of "The Best There Is, The Best There Was and The Best That Ever Will Be"

2017 Topps Undisputed Autographs Brock Lesnar (#34/99)

Another solid auto to add to my wrestling collection. I was surprisingly pleased that Brock Lesnar's autographs don't go tooo high (well I know that this is a sticker auto but still). This is a cool looking auto card from the highest end WWE product, Undisputed. It's rare that I add two wrestling cards, but Brock and Bret are definitely no brainers.

1996-97 Topps Chrome Michael Jordan PSA 9

Another card I've wanted to own for a long time. Finally won one at what I think is a great price. The 96-97 Chrome set is the most iconic sets of the 90's and definitely all time. Definitely excited to add the Chrome base of MJ to my collection.


  1. That Hit Man auto is awesome! I sure wish I hadn't locked down my budget this month.

    1. Thanks Fuji, saw it and had to have it!!
