    I didn't buy much at the season's start, but now, slowly but surely, I'm picking up a few odds and ends...

    Vince Young 06 Bowman Sterling Jersey
    [​IMG]
    (what was once a little pricey is now a 99 cent bargain purchase)

    Damian Williams 10 Elite NFL Rookie Auto
    [​IMG]
    (another 99 cent pick up... not bad for a hard sig)

    Derrick Morgan 10 Classics Significant Signatures 130/244
    [​IMG]

    Derrick Morgan 10 Topps Black 01/55
    [​IMG]

    I'm probably going to end up with a huge collection of Morgan stuff, his stuff was already ridiculously cheap even before the injury.

    I"ve broken some packs without much luck other than base rookies, but I did pull these two Golden Tates....

    10 Threads jersey 275/299
    [​IMG]

    10 Rookies and Stars auto 070/201
    [​IMG]

    and last up on these initial posts...

    After watching it on eBay for a month I finally bit the bullet and bought a signed, first edition copy of Warren Moon's bio "Never Give Up On Your Dream" for $30.

    Like all the cards. Love the Sterling Vince jersey.

    I loved opening packs all my life, but don't do it anymore because I cannot afford to buy a box for $200. The fun factor is still there, but I lose all control if I open packs when I can just go on e-bay, keep control, and buy the card I would have been hoping to get for less than the box of cards. Helped my collection out enormously to just buy the card.

    The industry needs to make it more afforable, with the same success, if they want me to buy packs again. I want to buy packs, it just doesn't make sense for me to do it.

    I use to really enjoy collecting cards, but it became kind of pricey at one point. Maybe I'll get back into it someday. This thread makes me wanna get back in to it.

    As Phi said, just do eBay. One of the perks of being a fan of a small market team is that the cards are dirt cheap on eBay. The Cook letters above cost me less than $5 each. Derrick Morgan and Damian Williams' rookie autos can be had for a buck. Chris Johnson cards still go for a fraction of what Adrian Peterson's sell for.

    Some recent "pricey" auction wins

    Some new additions...


    Jason Babin 04 Playoff Contenders
    [​IMG]
    NEW GUY! Even though he's wearing that fugly uniform from that aborted fetus of a franchise... given his play, I couldn't resist snagging one of Babin's better cards.

    Kenny Britt 09 Bowman Gold Auto 73/99
    [​IMG]
    Nice on card auto... if Kenny keeps visiting the endzone there will be no more cheap Britt sigs. A trade off I think I'm willing to accept.

    Daniel Morgan 10 Topps Platinum Black 10/25
    [​IMG]
    Shiny, short printed, black Morgan parallel... get well soon big guy.

    Damian Williams 10 Topps Finest Jersey/Auto 244/250
    [​IMG]
    99 cents! Seriously. Not a big sticker sig collector, but damn, that's a nice price for a jersey/auto

    I'm not a big fan of sticker autos, but the two Morgan cards above do a good job of incorporating the sticker sig into the design of the card

    Chris Johnson 09 Topps Philadelphia Signatures Auto
    [​IMG]
    (sweet on card sig)
