Random Vintage Card

I picked up an old vintage card on Listia recently.  I don’t really collect older stuff, but it was kind of an impulse purchase.  The card is a 1968 Topps base card of Jackie Hernandez.  Hernandez was mostly a utility player.  He played for several teams over 9 seasons.  The card is in decent shape.  It has no creases, some soft corners, and is slightly off-center.  It only cost me a little over 500 credits though which is not too bad.

Pack Break: 2012 Topps Update

I opened up a pack of 2012 Topps Update that was laying around from a repack.  I did pretty good.  I received three inserts and parallels.  I was also happy to see the Dozier and Hefner cards.  Here are the proceeds.

A New Autograph Added to the Collection

I purchased a 2013 Topps Tier One Autograph Card of Kirk Nieuwenhuis of the Mets on Listia.  I paid about 1,200 credits, but it was well worth it.  The card is numbered 283/399.  The autograph is in blue Sharpie with the number 9 at the end.  Nieuwenhuis started the season at AAA Las Vegas.  He will likely be in New York at some point this year.
