Merry Christmas to Me!

In early December I joined Crackin' Wax's Holiday Gift Exchange.  You put your name into the Elfster website and indicated a few want list items.  Each person was assigned a secret Santa and got to go shopping with a limit of $50.  I pulled the name of a Brewer fan and picked up a sweet Triple Threads auto/relic of Cecil Cooper and added a few autos/relics/parallels from my card stash.  I got a note and I think he liked the cards.

You never know what you are going to get and I was surprised when I opened up my package last week and pulled out this amazing card:
This card is great.  Many times Triple Threads has odd or stupid saying spelled out in the relic portion of these auto/relics but I can think of nothing more perfect than a Reggie Jackson card spelling out Mister October.  The auto looks nice and this card is limited to 18 copies.  I only have a couple Reggie autos in my collection and this card now is one of my centerpieces to the Reggie collection along with his rookie card and a 2003 Donruss Signature Series Auto /20.

I was lucky enough to score Sooz of A Cardboard Problem as my secret Santa and she dropped me a nice note as well.

Sooz, you did help my Christmas be quite Merry, thanks for the awesome card!


  1. That's an awesome card! Secret Santa was good to you!

  2. That card rocks! Sooz did you right.
