Firsts for Tony Gwynn & Gary Sheffield Collections

I always have admired Tony Gwynn's plate discipline when he played the game, but it hasn't been long that I've been collecting his cardboard.  A few days ago I was researching something on eBay and I stumbled across a Fleer card of Gwynn that stood out.  There were a few days left and the bidding was rather low.  I had a few bucks left over in my PayPal account so I put in a bid.  I really thought I would be instantly outbid, but I wasn't.  Another day or so passes and I get the confirmation e-mail that I won the card!  Needless to say I was surprised...not only that I won but the ending price was less than 4 bucks.  Have no idea what the card books for...could care less.



I also ran across this 1/1 Black Printing Plate of Gary Sheffield from 2007 Upper Deck Elements for around $10.00.  I don't normally spend much on single cards, but I don't any 1/1 cards in my sports collections so it made it really hard to pass this up.  Plus I really like steel cards.
