A bit of light reading that isn't "Famous Jewish Athletes"

Here's another recent eBay pickup about which I'm very excited because, besides being a major PC card, it's my very first booklet:
Rich Hill 2008 Topps Triple Threads Relics Pairs Rookie-Stars dual auto jersey(with Sam Fuld) (#49/50)
I had worried I'd have to throw down some major coin for this as at least one eBayer has it up for something like $50 (good luck with THAT, idiot), but I managed to grab this one for just $9.99 from the same guy that sold me the Abbott I posted yesterday, which meant I even managed to save on shipping!

I won't exactly call myself a Sam Fuld fan, but it's still pretty cool that he makes up half of the card and allows it to be made into a booklet.  There are still two more harder-to-get versions of this I'll have to pick up if I ever want to be considered a Supercollector, but that's not high on my list of priorities, so having just one of these is great.  And the best part:  it's another Rich Hill I needed!  This one puts him at 51 total hits, so he still leads baseball by a mile but trails all-sport leader Jake Long by three.  In terms of the Hill PC, this now puts me at 87 in-hand with a bunch more on the way, including some rainbow-style fun!


  1. Love Super Sam. He's one of those guys you just pull for.

    1. Haha, that's fine, I've got nothing against him, and hey--the better he does, the more valuable the card gets, right? Either way, it's a fun Hill for me to have.
