Mirror, mirror on the wall

There aren't too many Tino Martinez cards showing up at The Lost Collector Headquarters these days.

It's not that I'm not trying to add them. I'm just not coming across many I need. Plus, I'm still saving up for that Jeter auto, so I haven't been on the prowl like usual.

Still, I did pick up one recently - a 2004 Leaf Certified Materials Mirror White Bat Relic.

I prefer the Mirror parallels from the mid-90s, but this isn't the worst looking set. The bat relic is just sort of cut into the card, not really integrated. The just slapped it across Tino's legs. However, for a minimum bid, it was a good addition to the slooowly growing Tino collection.


  1. Can't wait to see which Jeter you eventually purchase. I would love to add another one to my collection, but at this point they're just way too pricey.

  2. I used Jason Bay as an excuse to add a Jeter auto a couple of years back. Still can believe Jason Bay shared a card with Jeter....

    Glad you were able to find a new Tino.

    1. You know, his autos with other players are so much cheaper! There is this one with Bobby Crosby that's always around 90 bucks.
