Nice pick ups...lots of color!

I am guessing your white whale is a Puckett auto!

Yeah, I've been chasing some rainbows this winter. Almost got some finished up.

The Puckett is an excellent guess and I definitely want to track one down eventually, but that isn't what's on its way to me.

At least not this time.

Killebrew rookie?

I plead the 5th. LOL

I've been checking the shipping info like a madman. It arrived in Minneapolis tonight, which means by the time I get home from work tomorrow at 5(ish) it'll be hereeee.
My whale arrived today and given its age and what I paid for it, I couldn't be happier with the results. The only part that sucks is I don't have enough proper vintage holders, so my second year isn't protected as much as I'd like. BUt that's only temporary.

Corners a little soft, a little nick on the bottom and an ever so slight crease near his (but I knew about all of that in advance).

And yes, Doc Mitch, you were correct ...

What do you need for vintage holders? I have a bunch of brand new stuff lying around. Sick card, btw. So underrated it's a travesty.
Basically all I need are a couple of the taller top loaders and larger penny sleeves. I never remember to pick them up because I don't have that many of the larger vintage cards.

I figure eventually I'll send a couple of these off for slabbing/grading - more for preservation than grading. But I was really happy with the condition of this one.

I've had an eye out for one of these for a while, but never pulled the trigger. I got this one for what I think is a steal - $49 shipped

As a Twins fan I wish Killer would get more love/respect in the hobby, but as a collector I'm cool with it because I can usually find some good deals.
If you send me your address I'll see what I have lying around and send you some.

Thank you so much, that'd be awesome!
