Not diamond kings but diamond debuts...and Listia too

Congrats to the Astros on their World Series win. Kings of the diamond this year indeed.

First, a couple quick Listia pick ups to share.

You might be thinking I covered this already, but no, I picked up a second one because well, they are nice and a second copper parallel, is a nice second to have.

This one is a bit out of the regular though:

I don't care what anyone says, the opening lyric to his old theme was "It's a shameful thing, lobster head". I picked this up on a "the price was right" whim. I know it is a generic piece of mat, but still neat enough to have one for the collection.

Anyway...I have talked about my like for the Diamond King cards from Donruss. I think these are something a number of collectors generally enjoy.

Upper Deck played off the name with using Diamond Debuts to signify rookies or close to rookies in the early 90s. Also similar to Diamond Kings, these were a subset of sorts in the base set.


1992 Upper Deck baseball needs filled and all part of the high set too. A decent subset in the base cards| I especially like the rookie threat card.

The rest

Surprisingly, no hockey cards here at all, keep or otherwise, but some multi copy 2004-05 Ultra Basketball.

Always like to mention, but take it as a given - if you see anything you like in the traders, just let me know - easy to get something figured out for trade. Besides, I am happy making some room and getting rid of some cards
