2004 Fleer Authentic Randy Johnson Auto /200
Sometimes the eBay beast can get the best of me, but I have no regrets. The Big Unit never signed much during his playing days so his auto carries a significant premium. I ran into a good deal and pulled the trigger (around $45). I must have been inspired watching all the highlights the MLB network has been showing lately leading up to his Hall of Fame induction.
My non Pirate/WVU collections are pretty small these days, but I do still keep an eye out on certain players. Most are guys that I had autos of, but were sold off in the great consolidation of the mid 2000's. The Big Unit was an auto I didn't have, but always wanted. He had been featured in a few newer products, but those prices usually run well over $100. My best chance was this Fleer auto that runs much cheaper.
By the way I'll probably close out my contest Monday morning. Join here....
