Just three cards

 I decided not to bore you with a ton of cards from the card show.  Here are my favorite three.  All three from 50 cent boxes.

This is an unnecessary Prizm type that I had missed.  But for 50 cents of this HOFer "Black and White Checker Prizm" came home with me!!  It's less blue in person.  My scanner really isn't great.

Speaking of scanner issues, this Verlander isn't so pink as the scan. It's a deeper red.  But it's beautiful!  I really like the effect and would be interested in others (Prizms only!) from this set. The set is 2013 Panini Select En Fuego Prizms

And now for the find of the show, and just in time, since the man just hit #700!!
Yep, that's right, a Pujols rookie year card for fiddy cents!!  And what's up with me not reading any "Congrats to Albert" posts on the blogs out there?!?!  Just kidding, write whatever you wanna write.  But I do love the Cardinals 1B/DH!  I hope to do a tribute post at some point and show off the cards I have of him.


  1. Nice looking Pujols card! And for such a great deal too. I have been a Pujols fan and collector since early in his career.

  2. Considering that Topps did some En Fuego Season's Best cards back in the 90's, I'm kind of surprised that they didn't trademark the name at the time.

  3. The Pujols was definitely an awesome find especially at "fiddy" cents.

  4. Congrats to Albert indeed! Always been a fan, even when he was destroying the Cubs in the early years.

  5. Wish I had more time to write, because Pujols deserves more congratulations posts.
