I found it pretty easy to justify these four pickups, though, since they're all essentially on my wantlist and not just stray cards that I didn't have the willpower to ignore:
Cazzie Russell 2011-12 SP Authentic By the Letter C patch auto (#23/50):
As with most of the others, I got a pretty nice price on this one. I now have six of the eight letters that spell "MICHIGAN" and only need "A" and "N", which a good eBay lead on the latter. If you see an "A" anywhere, please let me know and I'll make sure to reward you with some sort of finder's fee; I did see one on eBay earlier this week combined with an "H" (which I already have) but it was coming out of Hong Kong and I didn't feel like waiting that long. That's ok--I'm patient, and I'll have this fun project completed soon enough!
I decided to have fun and scan all three of those together, but I left out the Cazzie in this case for obvious reasons--I do try to be safe for work/kids most of the time! On a just-as-fun-but-not-as-R-rated note, I finally got over the hump and passed the century mark in my baseball PC! Hooray for more milestones already this year.
Stay tuned for more recent pickups pretty soon, and hopefully the completion of one or more of these nameplates!
