2014 eBay purchases: DeJake vu

It's Christmas Eve Eve and I've got a real quick post for you, but I also want to let people know to check out my trade package over on TMV as I show off, among other things, a cool pair of Wolverines sent to me by Scott over at Sports Cards Ate My Brain.

So why the strange reference to an eerie feeling you've already experienced something?  Have a look at my latest eBay pickup:
Jake Fox 2009 Upper Deck Signature Stars auto
Well, if it looks familiar to anyone, it is--I grabbed it on COMC and showed it off in October, explaining how I totally maimed the card in the process when it got caught in my scanner lid unbeknownst to me.  I promised to track down a more pristine copy, and to my surprise another one actually appeared on eBay.  These are literally--or
if you'd like, the only two copies I've ever seen for sale, and I was lucky enough to land both.  I had to spend closer to $9 to get this one, which is more than I paid for the original, and frankly that's probably more than most sane folks would spend on Jake Fox cards, but I felt compelled to make an honest spreadsheet out of my checklist, so here we are.  I still need just two of his 19 cards to close out his collection, which has been fun to chase.

Once again, unless anything else unexpected shows up, look for COMC-related posts soon.  As always, thanks for reading!

    1. I'm almost done with season 6, meaning I'm just about caught up, and of course I love the fact that he and Ann move to Ann Arbor and he says "Go Blue!" in one of the episodes.
