This is the first of what will be (at least) a four part series. I'm hedging my wager because I still have some change left on my last eBay gift card and I may be able to track down at least one more auto for my collection with it.
The first of many purchases I recently made on eBay with gift cards from my birthday arrived today. It's a 2007 Donruss Elite Extra Edition Aspirations autograph, numbered 20/25.
I dare you to find anything wrong with this die-cut, college-uniformed, low-numbered beauty. (Ok, yes, the autograph is a sticker, but still.)
This one is the eighth Hochevar Donruss EEE card that I have in my collection, and is the first autographed version I've tracked down. I really like the cut of these cards' jib.
On a related note, I also used a Barnes&Noble gift card from my brother to buy a copy of the movie Bridesmaids and a copy of Drew Magary's new novel, The Postmortal, both of which arrived today. I've heard only good things about Bridesmaids, so I figured why not add it to our comedy dvd collection.
Similarly, I've been enjoying Drew Magary's weekly writings on Deadspin for years and figured I'd see how he does as a post-apocalyptic novelist. I'll probably give it a quick review after I've finished reading it (which, if past experience is any indicator, will hopefully be sometime before the apocalypse).
