30 Day Baseball Card Challenge - Day 6

A card you spent more than $10 to get

I'm going to cheat a little with today's challenge. When it comes to acquiring new cards I'm cheap. While I love autographs and relics, I don't always open up the wallet. I opt instead of looking for base cards, parallels or odd ball cards versus the big purchase.

I acquired 2007 Upper Deck Sweet Spot auto of Greg Olsen at the last card show I attended...several years ago. He was just coming into his own as a Carolina Panther and I liked what I saw of him on and off the field. He was an easy selection to become one of my newest PCs and this was a beautiful card. I don't recall paying much more than $10 (because I'm cheap), but it was at least $10. The card looks much better in person than in the scan as the front is that mirror board, or whatever it's called. The signature is small and you have to hold it in the right light to see the blue ink against the blue Bears helmet.

  1. I've always liked UD Sweet Spot signatures and when it comes to their football products, the signed helmets are my personal fave.
