Bubble Mailer #1

I went to the post office (finally) to check on a trade I was expecting, and some eBay auctions I had won over the weekend. Much to my delight, there it was- a stuffed P.O. Box full of bubble mailers (and junk mail). Hooray!!! I love bubble mailer days.

Here is what was behind envelope #1:

2008 Moments & Milestones Robinson Cano Autograph

2008 Moments & Milestones Melky Cabrera Autograph

2008 Moments & Milestones Russell Martin Autograph

Let's give them a warm Cardboard Problem welcome into the box I labeled "PC GU & AU", although they won't make it into their home for a few days until I get the proper cases for them.

I ended up with all 3 of these for less than $20. The Russ Martin card ended with no bidders from the same seller as the lot of Cano/Cabrera, so I e-mailed him and asked if he would take $6 for it and he said yes. Not bad for a Russ Martin /25 auto if you ask me. What was even better is that I ordered them on January 2nd, and had them today. It's nice to know that there are still eBay sellers out there who ship as quickly as we do.


  1. Congrats on Making the Heavenly Seven. That rocks.

  2. Nice Russell Martin (no bidders! I guess I should've gotten on there). And congrats on the Heavenly Seven.

  3. nice martin auto.
    notice that on m&m, topps calls him russell. on some other issues, he's russ. i don't get it.
    and congrats on the 7 as well.

  4. Thanks for the congrats everyone.

    I love eBay bargains by the way. What I don't understand is that some Cano cards were going for almost $30 last night, yet other nights I can steal them for like $8-$12 tops. Crazy.
