My Going Away Gift to Myself

Hey guys, Drew back here! I probably spoil myself a bit too often, but regardless, rather than spending extra at the past card show I attended, I decided to buy a piece for my collection that I've always wanted to own! I collected the funds I made from selling off COMC, and for a bunch of unwanted cards and $25 I got this beautiful 16x20 off of eBay:

I started watching baseball a little while after Nolan Ryan's near 3 decade career ended, but I'm enough of a baseball fan to thoroughly enjoy this moment that has now been regarded as one of the most classic fights during a baseball game in history! If you've never seen perhaps the most dominant hard throwing pitcher of all time beat the crap out of Robin Ventura, here's a link. Enjoy.

I've been eyeing this picture for a while, and with the funds I collected I knew it was a great opportunity to get myself a going away gift. It conveniently arrived in the mail the day before I left, so I got to see it off on my way to college! Ryan inscribed "Don't Mess with Texas" below his autograph, which makes this piece double as awesome. It's authenticated by PSA/DNA and Nolan Ryan's personal authenticity company, so for the price I paid; I made out like a bandit!

Before I let you all go, I just wanted to let you know that drewscards has officially joined Twitter! If you enjoy this blog or some of the things I talk about, be sure to give me a follow @drewscards and I'll be more than happy to follow you back. I've had a personal Twitter account for a few years now but am always looking to expand my audience here on drewscards.

Have a great day everyone, and let me know what you think of my new masterpiece!

See Ya!
