Dad's Yard Sale Spectacular!

Hey guys, Drew back here, and I guess we have a new series. I'm sure you all know my awesome dad loves to shop for me and buy me all sorts of cool cards, and not only does he love card shopping, he loves yard sales. His famous quote is "One Man's Junk is Another Man's treasure!", and we always mess with him about his obsession with sales. Well, the first installment in the series is from a few days before the card show, where dad got me a bunch of cool cards! Check them out!

This was A-Rod day as he picked up a ton of nice inserts and stuff of his early years and during his short stint as a Ranger. The Sportflics ones are awesome, and the Metal Universe of course is different and cool looking. The one in the bottom left feels like a felt behind A-Rod, which is really sweet actually. Out of these first 8 I think I may have had the Power Up card (which are kinda ugly), and the Metal one I might have.

More A-Rods here, some really awesome ones, didn't have any previously. The Ripken and A-Rod card is hilarious, reading Superman comics together haha. The one on top is by far my favorite one in this group though, but wait, there's more!

2 A-Rod rookies! I must have like 4 or 5 of the Upper Deck Alumni one on the right by now, but I didn't have the left one, which is an awesome card! My best A-Rod rookie yet, which is great to have.

No more A-Rod's in this lot now, moving on, to some REALLY nice Jeters and a nice Pujols as well. The Musial is ok looking, don't get why they took a picture of his plaque for a card. The Griffey is my favorite here though, it looks amazing!!!!! It scanned beautifully and may be one of my top 5 favorite cards in this bunch!

Lastly, a bunch of nice rookies to add to the PC! Carlos Lee, Adam Dunn, and Carlos Zambrano are the 3 lowest BV out of these, but the Maddux is awesome (don't know if I already had one or not), and the Johan is amazing too! This is Johan's big rookie, which is nice to have, considering the great career he's endured so far in his career!

Thanks so much dad!!!! See Ya!
