Mailbag - COMC / ebay Bravos

Been posting a bunch of football lately I know, here's some baseball for your eyeballs as the season winds down. Got a COMC order in the mail today so here you go.

Love the Inception cards and was able to pick this one up for cheap off COMC, Hursh looks likes he'll be moving to the bullpen but we need arms there too so that's helpful. He was actually pitching for Oklahoma State when I was taking a class there a few years ago.

Bubbles! Picked up this die cut, bubble version of current closer (who never gets to close games since we never win anymore) Arodys Vizcaino. Kid throws heat and has looked pretty good so far since coming back from his bone head PED suspension earlier in the year.

Finest Refractor action here.

This Andruw shot was too awesome for my scanner so here's a crappy cell phone pic. This may be the set I ultimately chase, one of my favorites ever since I was 10 years old still to this day.

Here's where the ebay scores take over, picked up this Lucas Sims auto for $3 shipped. He was in a bus wreck early on in the minor league season and had his season and thus his development shortened but should be in Spring games with the big club come March.

Purple cards never get old. This guy showed alot of promise out of the rotation until he was scratched on the 9th with sore elbow and will visit Dr. James Andrews.....

Can you tell I focused on prospects in my last few orders, I believe this one was 26 cents shipped.

As I've stated before I absolutely love shots of guys in their High School/College uniforms and this one of Tyrell Jenkins is another hit on that mini collection. He just had his first card as a Brave come out in '15 Bowman Chrome. I'll be on the lookout for those at the card show I'm going to on Saturday, if you need them let me know and i'll keep an eye out for your team(s).

Closing it out with the 19 year old we bought from Arizona earlier in the year when baseball was still fun to watch, anyways Shelby Miller and David Price are about to go at it so see ya and as always thanks for reading!


  1. Inception is one of my favorite sets to cherry pick some autos of big name prospects. Usually a lot cheaper than Chrome.

    1. Hopefully you don't have them all, you pick up much Chrome yet?
