UD Premier Ken Griffey Jr/Andruw Jones Dual Auto /25
Every so often I like to show off something in my collection that really doesn't have a place other than the fact it is cool card. Back in mid 2000's I had accumulated a good bit of high end cards because I was frequent opener of packs. I often reflect on this time as my carefree (read non married non kid) collecting time. Single. + real world job = card frenzy. It was fun while it lasted. Long story short I met a girl.
Finding myself in a very serious relationship I figured I needed to just focus on my Pirates and sold off most of my high $ cards to help pay for a nice ring and hook myself up with some high end Buccos and Mountaineers. Now I pretty much stick to my guns other than getting together with my buddies to bust a cheap box. Most of the cards I pull I spread among my blog friends.
With all that being said I'm not completely void of nice cards outside the realm of my collection. Sometimes I'll branch out and try to find autos of players that I once owned. Such is the case with the Griffey and Jones. If I recall this was a painkiller induced purchase when I was recovering from surgery. I'm sure if I went back and tabulated my total $'s spent during this time period it would probably make me throw up. Oh well....it made me feel better.
Thanks for reading!
