Check out my Cards…no seriously…

Hey, check out my cards!

I’m just getting around to posting my recent purchases from COMC and am pretty happy about all the new shiny-ness and extra thick card stock i received from the state up north.

One of the many things I love about COMC is that i can add items to my cart and sit on it for a couple of days or weeks and come back to add or subtract anything, then place the order when i am damn good and ready.  This process keeps my compulsiveness with cards under control.  It also allows me a chance to double check on whether or not i already have the card…i’ve actually bought the same card a couple of times from these guys…IKNOWRIGHT!  Card collector problems…

As you would expect, my entire purchase was Redskin players.  When i start loading up the cart i tend to focus on 2 or 3 guys, this time it was 4.  Clinton Portis, Chris Cooley, Brian Orakpo and RGIII.  I was looking for cards that spoke to me in a visual way, and they had to have a serial number on it somewhere.  Any jersey or autos were targets of my visual affection, but only the ones i could afford…still couldn’t pull the trigger on an RGIII auto.  The Mall 205 show is this weekend and assuming my wifey lets me go, i may get lucky and find something in my range that meets my on card auto goal.  I’ve been selling a lot of old CD’s and records, so i have some extra $20’s burning holes in my denim.

Now on to the loot

Initially i was going to do separate posts for each player, but then realized that i didn’t want to do 5 posts this evening…plus we have a screaming baby that doesn’t understand how to go to sleep without screaming.

So here goes.

Clinton Portis or C-Po

11 NT Clinton Portis Colossal 23:25 03 SP Clinton Portis Supreme Signatures Auto

This is a beast of a card, if i ever get to a point where i hate Portis, this can easily act as a coaster or be cut in to one of those cool ninja stars.

    • thanks Fuji, it’s always fun getting a comc package in the mail.

      i love the Portis patch too, my favorite part is the stitching coming out of the side which i forgot to mention in the post. plus you can never go wrong with a tri color patch. On Wed, Mar 6, 2013 at 5:01 PM, Cardboard Hogs
