I'm still fighting with my home computer which is starting to piss me off. At some point I may just have to cut the cord and buy a new one. In the meantime I'm going to get a second opinion from an IT friend of mine. The issue doesn't really effect me keeping the blog active it just has put my scanning behind.
2008-09 UD Exquisite Joe Alexander Auto /10
While I collect all things WVU, Alexander is one of the four players I actively search on eBay for on a regular basis (Steve Slaton, Pat White and Devin Ebanks are the other 3). Alexander is kind of fun to collect because being a lottery pick gets you on a ton of cardboard. He also flamed out so quick that his rookie releases were the only cards produced. So a ton of cards out of the gate, but nothing new past the rookie year has given me ample time to accumulate most of his releases.
I'm to the point now that I'm only looking for lower numbered parallels and autos. One thing I've learned about NBA cards is that even though the player is out of the league, the set itself can still make the card expensive. UD Exquisite is one of those sets. Fortunately this auction ended much cheaper than I expected at $3.99. In the past I've had to pay $15-25 range.
I'm probably more excited about this card than I should be. I realize that showing off failed NBA prospects is not a great way to generate traffic on a blog devoted to baseball cards. That is kind of the reason I picked late Saturday night to write about it, but still wanted to get it on here to show a few of my WVU buddies.
Thanks for reading!
