I Wanted Them

You ever just see a card that you just want and get it just because of that purpose? I would hope so, that's what collecting to me is all about.

My latest additions were finds on eBay that popped up and caught my attention.
This Dark Horses insert from 2021 Certified looks great, even better in person. I like the black/rainbow foil offset.

Another Saquon. This time as a Franchise Favorite. I am not sure with the last two seasons if he fits in that wording anymore. I am still a fan and am hopeful he can turn things around once he gets back in to play.

My final card, Azeez Ojulari autograph. It was more of a need than a want. I needed his autograph for my Giants collection, but wanted one in a Giants uniform.

I have more new Giants card additions to show off soon once my Burbank Sportcards order arrives. Until then, have a great Friday.

Lots Of Blue

I have shown off most of the trade mail day I did with Shane from Cheap Wax Wednesday, now it's time to show off the rest in what the last post on here.

Why could this be the last post when football season is just around the corner? Well, the realization of running three blogs is starting to take it's toll. This one, the least favorite of readers, would be the first sacrifice I will make. Could there be another blog leaving after this decision? There may be. Am I shutting the door completely on this blog? No but for now any future NY Giants posts will take place on Matt's Wonderful Blog Of Hobbies.

So, I say let's go out with a bang if this is the way it completely ends by showing off some great Giants cards I got from Shane.

Here is the gallery,

Some great cards huh? I agree.

Thanks again to Shane for the trade.

And thanks to you guys for checking out today's post!

Landon Some Collins

I decided I wasn't really a fan of Unintentional Rainbow segment, so instead I will embed those cards in their own posts.

Such as today's cards that I got from Shane in my latest trade with the Cheap Wax Wednesday guru.

Landon Collins was drafted by the NY Giants in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft and was one heck of a player. Which is why it was so surprising they let him walk away in 2018 to the rival Washington Football Team (I will never get used to calling them that)

And even though he isn't on the team, I am still more than happy to add his cards such as these 2015 Topps Chrome parallels.

(blue with Giants blue=hobby happiness)

All four grouped together.

I considered looking at doing a rainbow chase, but looking at his prices and the fact not a lot of them are out there it seems near impossible to do. But, if I see a few laying around here and there I may just add them.

Here is the 2015 Topps Chrome chase and so far I have,
Base, Refractor,Purple Refractor, Green Refractor, Orange Refractor, Diamond Refractor, Blue Wave Refractor, Pulsar Refractor, STS Camo Refractor /499, BCA Pink Refractor /399, Black Refractor /299, Blue Refractor /199, Sepia Refractor /99, Gold Refractor /50, Red Refractor /25, SuperFractor 1/1, and Printing Plates 1/1

Thanks again to Shane for these.

More Eli's Arrived Part 2

As I posted the other day, there was even more Eli's to post about from my latest trade with Shane from Cheap Wax Wednesday fame. 

Today is the biggest chunk and most exciting of the group, not that all Eli adds aren't exciting.

Let's take a look at the second half of my Eli additions,
Dual Relic from Gridiron Kings

Beam me up Eli!

Eli was a Gamer, admit it.

He was a Field General on and off the field

And my most favorite of the group was a card I wanted for years.....
2004 Fleer Rookie Throwback Threads leather helmet relic


Thanks again to Shane for the sweet Eli's. More Giants to come from my trade with Shane soon.

More Eli's Arrived Part 1

It has been awhile since any Eli Manning cards made their way to my place, but in my recent trade with Cheap Wax Wednesday Guru Shane, some finally arrived.

Today, I am only showing off half of the Eli mail day as I will tackle the rest in the next post. 

2008 Upper Deck football heroes green parallel /350

2015 Topps Gold /2015

2008 Topps Chrome refractor. I can't honestly remember if I already had this one or not, but being a Super Bowl card, it's a keeper regardless. I have plenty of Super Bowl 42 and 46 duplicates but those two games are forever in my brain so the cards aren't going anywhere.

And a 2004 National Trading Card Day from Press Pass of Eli Manning, which also happens to be his rookie year. I do have one already but is a little rough. This one looks much better.

Part two is loaded with Eli relics, so hope you are sitting for that one.
