I bought a lot off eBay a couple weeks ago, and I finally got the package. I am really excited about this lot because for $30, I got 31 Kevin Youkilis cards. Thats cool, and 10 of the cards were cards I didn't have yet. When I bought it, there were a couple cards listed that I had never heard of before. They turned out to be Red Sox gift set photo variations. I only scanned one of those, but it is pretty cool.
These cards weren't even the coolest part of the lot. The lot had 2 SPs and an SSP. This first one, a sparkle variation is worth $30 by itself.
And if the sparkle wasn't enough, there was a 2013 out of bounds variation.
And oh yeah, there was this $65 card.
Pretty sick for $30. If you haven't figured out the lot theme yet, it is every Topps base brand card of Kevin Youkilis including short prints. I had been meaning to get the 2012 Topps Update SSP for a while, but it was just too pricy for a card that didn't have some kind of auto or relic. When I found this auction, I knew it was my best chance at getting this card for a decent price and boy was I right.
This is one of my favorite maildays in a while. My Kevin Youkilis PC is getting close to 600 unique cards. I am also getting close to 30% of all Kevin Youkilis cards. I got another in the mail today that I will post tommorow. Happy Maundy Thursday!
