Gold at the card show.

I'll be honest the "card shows" here in Anchorage kinda suck.  So much so, that they usually get put on with the Stamp and Coin shows at one of the local malls.  It's the same guys, who I usually see at trade nights, and the same stuff.  I got an email about a show last weekend and decided heck why not.  I had a twenty in my pocket that begged to be traded for cards.  There were only two sellers there and I looked through all the boxes and pulled out cheap Packers parallels and then I found gold. Literally, well parallely anyways.
I've been trying to pick up one of these 2011 Yount Gold Parallels for a while now and they always seem to go for way too much on ebay.  I ended up picking this guy up for a couple of bucks.  Way cheaper than online and no shipping.  Welcome to the collection!

A New Yount I Can't believe I didn't have!

Just a quicky.  I was searching ebay one day and decided to peruse the Yount listings.  When I saw this card I took pause. I know I don't know every Yount I have by sight, but for some reason this one stuck out at me.  So I went to my master collection list and lo and behold a card not on the list.  And this one had a buy it now price that was very reasonable.  So welcome 2004 Elite Robin Yount, welcome.
