Holy Grail Acquisition #3

On the right hand side of my blog, I have a few cards that fall under my Holy Grail of Collecting. From time to time, I check in on these cards in hopes of getting a good deal on one. Some are more reasonable than others. I crossed a third card off of the Grail by picking up a 1993 Topps Finest Don Mattingly. I have wanted this card since I first laid eyes on it in a Tuff Stuff magazine way back in the day. Initially I thought it was an insert in 1993 Topps and was always disappointed when I didn't get one (hey, I was only 9). Years passed and for whatever reason I never got my hands on this card. Well, 18 years later, I finally own it and it instantly becomes one of my favorite cards.


  1. Always good to see someone get a Holy Grail type card. Congrats and I hope you got a good deal.

  2. Congrats on the pickup! Always nice to see that kinda thing leave peoples' want lists.

    I really need to start trackin' down some '93 Finest. They're growin' on me.
