For a three year stretch in the mid 2000's Jack Wilson was second to only Jason Bay in unique cards I added to my collection. Fast forward to today and it seems like I have to hunt for Wilson cards that I don't have. Months will pass without even adding one. The rarer ones that do hit eBay sale surprisingly well. A nice patch card just hit a few weeks back and sold for over $20.
Thankfully COMC recently provided some fun cards.
2006 Upper Deck Special F/X Purple Jack Wilson /150
UD Special F/X was sort of the Chrome version of regular UD. I've seen this card a few times on eBay but the shipping costs were always more than what the card costs. COMC to the rescue.
Jack Wilson 2004/2005 Donruss Elite Aspirations /98
Back when these sets first came out and I use to hoard as many of the diecut parallels as I could get my hands on. I love them. Guess I'm a sucker for diecut. The 2004 version is my favorite, but the numbering is much easier to read on the 2005.
It has been kind of funny as I had been bad mouthing COMC lately and sure enough I've found a handful of cards that were must buys. I just need to be more thankful that places besides eBay exist to buy cards online.
Thanks for reading.
