Finally my 2008 Sterling set is complete!!! Plus a low numbered Prime Cuts

I've been looking for this card for a while.  Over 3 years to be exact.  It's the last of the 2008 Topps Sterling Yount Base cards.  #225 has eluded me for a long time. I kept losing auctions because I'm cheap.  I saw this one on eBay with a buy it now price of 6 bucks, but with free shipping. Hmmm.  A thought about it and saw another 225 up for auction starting at .99 cents so I put this one in my watch list and went after the one up for auction.  I put a max big that would make the card just about 6 bucks with shipping figuring if someone over bids me I'll just go grab that other card for 6 bucks and free shipping and be done with it. In the end that's what I ended up doing.  Another funny coincidence is that the card shop in Las Vegas, Legacy Sportscards, that I bought this card from is the same card shop I went to when I was in Vegas a few years back and living in Haines.  Just kinda funny.

I also picked up a nice 2008 Playoff Prime Cuts bat card numbered to 49 for super cheap with free shipping while I was shopping on ebay to.

Two more to add to the super collection.
