A bunch of these packages had some extra cards thrown in which I always appreciate. This is the first scan of some extras:
I have most of these except for the Jeffrey Wendelken and Nathan Minnich, so I am happiest about those two. The other three are tradebait.
As I mentioned those are throw-ins along with this card:
This is easily my best Clay Buchholz card. I had a few jersey cards and one autograph previously but this is an autograph with three patch pieces, including a three-colored patch. Excellent looking card.
The next card is another pitcher, Felix Doubront. I showed off my Jonny Gomes Hometown Currency relic earlier. Doubront is a player I targeted because I knew that he would have a foreign coin from Venezuela. Here it is:
Up next is a triple jersey and autograph of Daniel Bard, who was just recently recalled by Boston. This is from the Triple Threads set from 2011. Unfortunately Bard has hit a few bumps in the road lately.
Here are some more throw-ins. The Dustin Pedroia/Josh Beckett is new, everything else is tradebait.
Those throw-ins came with the following three cards:
Sorry for the scan, my computer did not want to save the cropped picture for reasons that make no sense to me whatsoever. Anyway, I did not have a Jason Bay autograph card from his Red Sox time or a Coco Crisp autograph. I love that Crisp card. I had never seen anything like it before. The Adrian Beltre manufactured bat barrel is pretty cool too. I had a Robinson Cano that I got in a pack but sold it of course.
Next is the #1 card on my Most Wanted list, the super-short-printed James Loney from last year's Topps Update. This is likely to be Loney's only Red Sox card ever.
Next we have some more throw-ins that came with Loney. These are all available for trade, I think. I need to check on the Williams Chasing History to be sure.
Finally, my biggest Adrian Gonzalez card so far, a Triple Threads red patch card numbered to just 18.
Quite the mailday today.
