As you may have noticed the eBay purchases around here have been scarce. There really hasn't been much out recently that I have had any interest in, and nothing I know I won't be able to find later or trade for.
It's sad that my collection has been at a stand still for a while, but at the same time there hasn't been anything to make me interested in looking for new cards. Anyone else feeling kind of blah about buying new baseball cards this winter?
Sometime last weekend I went on eBay, did my usual "Robinson Cano auto" search and saw a few things ending within minutes. Since I hadn't bought anything in a while I decided to pick up a new auto.
So... I bought this:
2010 Bowman Platinum Robinson Cano auto
Now here is where I need you guys to humor me. Double click the picture of the card and look at the upper right corner/right side of the game used area. Tell me you see that I am not crazy, and that the jersey SHOULD COVER THE WHOLE AREA designated for the swatch of material. Now I am not mad at the seller at all. This isn't something that you can really see on the eBay scans and a casual collector or someone who doesn't collect Cano probably wouldn't have examined the card this closely.
Maybe I am just being cranky. Either way, I still like my new card even if it's a little shoddy.
