Well, school has officially started again. One of the reasons I decided to go back and get my PhD is so that I could teach at the collegiate level when I finish. One of the benefits of this is getting summers off if I choose, but that really isn't an option while you're a graduate student. So, I'm back on the grind.
I made a couple purchases last week on eBay to fill some holes in the Matt Harrison PC. Both of these are pretty rare cards, so I'm extremely happy to add them.
This is the black mini parallel from 2013 Topps, numbered 2 of 5. I have been watching this card for almost, if not more than, a year. When I first saw it, the seller had a BIN price of $30 with no best offer option. After what seemed like an eternity, I was finally able to negotiate a price of $6. I've been working on patience as a buyer, and it is really paying off.
I think I only need the platinum 1/1 and a printing plate to complete the 2013 mini rainbow.
The next card:
This is the yellow printing plate from 2013 Topps flagship. This is the first time I've seen a printing plate from 2013 flagship. The buyer was asking $9.99, so I jumped on it.
So there are my newest babies for the PC. I've got more Harries coming from COMC, but I'll post about those later.
Hope all is well!
