Some very rough and a Diamond in the rough

So I picked up 21 random Magic cards on Listia. The description was simply "wow". I figured it was a bit of a random chance, but for about 60 cents, I figured, why not. Well, I learned a buyer beware in that the condition of the cards was quite is the worst culprit...

Yeah - really this one will be going to my son.

Here are the rest of the cards...

Nothing too special there or for keeps, but the following are for the collection, though still not the greatest condition...

As for the Santa Lot 20...Highlights:

Not too much going on today in the Santa Lot 20, but did come up with a couple new to me 2008-09 Upper Deck Black Diamond cards which includes a two diamond Nathan Horton. This will be the first multi diamond card I have from the set...

The rest

Unfortunately these sets are probably big enough I won't get either completed from the Santa Lot cards, but may get fairly well along even from these odds and sods pick ups.


Hey, 2003-04 SP Authentic basketball...haven't seen much of it lately - which is fine by the way, but still interesting given how much was coming by earlier.  Other than that, at least the Gridiron insert is from the Pro and not College set.

All in, just a little disappointed, the Mini Jersey Upper Deck set Getzlaf is nice, but I like the set and a card I didn't have yet would have been nice!
