I'm deleting my eBay app.

LOL, yeah right.  Well, I should probably make someone at least change the password so I can't buy anything for a year after the month long bender I went on.  I have to update my want list with taking off all these cards and some inserts I picked up and also adding newly released cards from sets like 2014-15 Flair.  So y'all tell me how I did on these...

2010-11 Panini Dominion Showcase RC /50

2010-11 Panini Pinnacle Threads RC /25

2013-14 Panini Contenders Six Signatures

2014-15 Artifacts Tundra Trios (I accidentally bought the One with Kesler twice however the first one had damage to the top so this worked out well.  I'll sell the other one.)

2014-15 Artifacts Tundra Sixes Rangers/Devils

2014-15 Artifacts Tundra Sixes Straps Rangers/Flyers /3

2013-14 Panini Contenders Quad Auto Richards, St. Louis, McIlrath, McDonagh

2013-14 Panini National Treasures Quad auto /50 Brassard, McDonagh, Moore, Diaz

 2013-14 Panini Titanium Patch /15 McDonagh and Boyle (boooooo)

2014-15 Fleer Ultra Road to the Championship cards
2015 National Hockey Card Day auto

Still waiting on a couple of cards to arrive which is the downside to having to purchase most cards from Canada.  I am pretty happy with what I was able to knock off the old want list here.  I may be even more happy that knocking off some of those artifacts cards will make my want list appear slightly less crowded and neater.

Bubble mailer week...

Well, it was also PWE day because some sellers on eBay are just lazy.  I love getting a bargain so sometimes I will stray from solely buying autographs or only buying my guys.  That's where this nice Kreider auto came from.  I like it alot and it was way cheaper than it should be.  Then again hockey autographed cards are no where near as expensive to collect as baseball autographs.  Maybe it's just me.

Here are the new McDonagh cards I can cross off my want list today:

2014-15 UD MVP Super Scripts /25

2010-11 ITG Heroes and Prospects auto

 2014-15 Upper Deck Tundra Trios (USA)

These were $1.69 for both, and I didn't have one so I figured why not.  The price is right.

2014-15 SP Six Authentic (I won't lie I don't like the card as much as I would if the Flyers were the "back of the card".)

I did also add some Cano cards to my collection as well.  Both are from 2105 Topps Series 1.

Blogging about my eBay pick ups makes me remember why I should stay away from packs.  I do occasionally grab boxes of hockey and baseball but focusing on my collection has helped it to grow and has stopped the amount of cardboard in my house from increasing 100 fold a year.
