I may have not been able to pick up as many key cards as I had wanted to, but I was thrilled to make this nice 2012 Topps Gold Rush auto Tim Hudson my first auto of the year. To this day I still haven't seen many of this card made available online so I'm especially happy to have grabbed it when I had the opportunity.
As the year progressed I was able to add a few other autos of Huddy to my PC. Still haven't grabbed any of his 2012 Triple Threads autos yet...perhaps that will be a goal going into 2013.
One segment of my collection that doesn't always get as much attention as other segments is my NC State collection. Back in the spring I was thrilled to see the Pack headed to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Men's basketball tournament. It's been awhile since there has been an NC State player to make a big impact in the majors, but that doesn't stop me from rooting on my favorite collegiate team.
Of course I can't do a year in review post without mentioning another great year of hosting my monthly Affordable Group Breaks. 2012 saw a lot of great product ripped spanning nearly 20 years. The breaks may have slowed down in the last few months (it's a lot a work you know!) I do have a great break on taps to kick of 2013. Sign-ups have already been posted so check out the top right corner of the blog for all the info. A big thank you to all the participants and vendors that supplied the boxes. It was a lot of fun and I hope to carry on the tradition of Affordable Group Breaks again in 2013.
The last thank you I want to make is to all of you - the readers. There are no shortages of great blogs and bloggers out there now so I appreciate all the support I've received throughout the year. Here's to a great 2013 here at Cardboard Collections. Don't forget to like us on Facebook as well as I do post exclusive content there from time to time.
