My Favorite Pull of the Year

Back around the time of the National show in Cleveland I ordered a bunch of Donruss from Dave & Adams.  This was around the same time I was recovering from my surgery so it was the perfect storm of boredom, wanting to open cards and pain killers.  I actually did pretty well in the boxes.  I'll show off the full load sometime soon.  This is just a quick post to showcase one particular card.
2014 Donruss Series 1 Recollection Auto /50

I was pretty excited to pull this card out of the box.  Biggio is one of the those players that everybody likes so even though I'm not an Astros fan I was happy to pull it.  It also helps that the Recollection autos are hard to come by.  Extra bonus for showing Biggio during his catching days!  

Hope everyone has a good weekend.  I'll be heading out to watch my Mountaineers take on #4 Baylor. Hopefully we'll have some good luck and pull the upset.

Thanks for reading!

  2. Wow, what a great card, and congrats on pulling it! I've always liked the way Donruss did their Recollection set. And Biggio is one of those guys I think any collector would be thrilled to pull.

    1. Sure did! Bet that was a great one to watch. Definitely a convincing win, too, not a cheap one.

    2. It was the best game in the Dana Holgorson era at Mountaineer Field. I'm happy he got his big win.
