CC: Still Unearthing in 2019

One of the documents that was lost in the digital fire was my CC Sabathia checklist. I'm probably not going to catalog the entire collection again, but I'd still like to add new cards to it. There aren't many places to look for something different and new depicting CC as a Brewer. Basically, there are 1/1's that are probably sealed in packs somewhere, and there are the 2009 Topps Unique jumbo patches. One of them appeared on eBay a few weeks ago, and yesterday it arrived all the way from Taiwan.

I believe this makes me the owner of 7 of the 40 cards made. I was able to find serial copies 01, 03, 04, 06, 10, 37, and 40. It's a fun way to carry on the memory of that exciting 2008 season.

$10 Scumbucket Grab Bag 4.5

2001 Pacific Peter Warrick Impact Zone

 Kind of a tough insert. I fell in love with the product in while I was student teaching, and have since opened a few boxes, getting only one of these. Recently I found the entire insert set for a very reasonable price. Get this one and the Warrick Dunn and make your own Wheel of Fortune Before & After puzzle.
