Installment 3 of COMC Black Friday purchase showcases my Giants Base, Inserts and Parallels.
One of my goals in 2014 was to keep on top of all the base cards that are released featuring the Giants. I am doing a good job this year and after this purchase I am just a few Classics and Update cards away from having them all.
One of my other goals was filling in the Giants base gaps from 2011-2013. With this 10 card purchase I am still 23 cards away with most of them being pretty scarce.
Until I recently picked up one in a lot of cards, I had forgotten to include these mini Bowman Chrome cards on my Giants checklist. Fortunately I was able to finish of the team set quickly with these 6 for under 50 cents each. Finally a Pablo Sandoval from 2012 Panini Signature Series. I don't remember this being release and have found very few of these base cards on the secondary market. This is the first of 3 Giants I have been able to track down. Not a great looking card but I will still be on the lookout for the final 2.
I also added a few inserts to the bucket and brought them home.
The final pick ups are all parallels. There were tons available and I tried to focus on team sets I could complete or make progress on those within striking distance.
I knocked of a decent chunk of my Giants want lists on this purchase, one of my favorite Black Friday activities.
