This is a card I haven't seen in a long time. Snagged it up a few weeks back.
2002 Donruss Longball Leaders Brian Giles /37
This is one of those cards where I paid 3 times more in shipping than the actual card cost. I really despise doing that, but the card is rare enough, and the overall price cheap enough ($4.50) that I decided to pull the trigger.
I'm such a sucker for these funky insert parallels.
Thanks for reading.
That's a beauty! I really miss Donruss inserts like that--they made some very cool numbered cards for sure.ReplyDelete
Yeah, I like the unique numbering. Donruss was the king of odd numbering.Delete
Low-numbered, long-forgotten inserts like these are hobby gold. $4.50 is a good deal, even if most of that was the shipping charge.ReplyDelete
Yeah, most of the time eBay is still cheaper than COMC on these type of cards. More times than not I'm able to take advantage of combined shippingDelete
Is that a die cut? Then it was definitely worth the extra shippingReplyDelete
Yeah it is a diecut!Delete
This card is a beauty. I left the hobby in 2001, so I missed out on seeing these.ReplyDelete
I collected then, but pretty much only cheap sets so I'm just now getting back to finding inserts.Delete
