Is there anything worse than an Andruw Jones baseball card? He went from hero to zero over night and has never looked back. I hate when I pull his cards, he is so irrelevant now. Anyway….broke another box of 07 Fleer Ultra SE. I think this will be my last box of this brand; I think I’ve tapped the well. The hits have lost their luster and the base set is pretty much complete. I enjoyed Ultra a lot and would recommend this set to anyone, but it does get old. I can’t argue with a Mornaeu jersey with a stripe though! “momorneau,” this card is coming your way for a jersey Mauer you may have lying around!
I’m not sure what I’d like to buy next for our box break. I know I want to get my hands on ’09 Topps Heritage! I’m sure we all do. In the meantime I’ll probably look around for a good deal and run with it. I’ve never been one to purchase boxes that are over $100. I’m not even sure I would if I found a $100 bill on the ground. I’m all about collecting base cards of Joe Mauer and collecting his high value cards via trades or ebay. I’d rather buy a blaster of ’08 Stadium Club than a hobby box. Chances of me pulling a Mauer auto from the hobby are slim, but I’ll probably get his base card from a blaster. I have finally put together Mauer’s checklist 2002-2008 so I’ll start chipping away at it.
Enjoy the big game this weekend!
