CC: Fuck That

Finally, a couple years later, one of these purple CC parallels shows up on eBay. I take no chances and go with the BIN option. This is Valentine's Day, mind you. I FINALLY get it on the first day of March. When something this scarce pops up, you take what you can get. For a while there, I talked myself into thinking this card didn't exist. As you can see...

This card's brethren are calling out for him to join them. "We even saved you a seat, dog."

So, we head for the basement. This is man's work, unfit for the first floor. I really ought to take better care of my tools.

Claw to the corner. Success. This went a lot easier than I thought.

And here it is, naked and free.

I have a craving for grape jelly for some reason.

Hanging' with the boys.

It feels really good to get another step closer to completion. A couple of golds left, that's all.

Congrats. I know how it is to get a much needed card for the PC. Last week I grabbed one of those Heritage BuyBack Virdon cards. In 3 years one has never popped up on ebay. But someone listed it on COMC and I snagged it. I have a line on one from a different year but the guy that has it for trade on the Beckett site won't answer my emails.

Enough about me, congrats on your card.

I'm just trying to wrap my mind around the fact that CC is on a card called "Cut from the Same Cloth" with Carlos Zambrano.
