Card of the Day - 2014 Topps Five Star : Paul O'Neill Base Autograph (332/399)

Watching MLB network does wonders for your collection if not your wallet as I was watching a special on the 1990's Nasty Boys aka Cincinnati Reds which had many famous names on team including one Paul O'Neill.

I knew of Paul from his days with the Yankees but I had forgotten that he played with the Reds and as I watched the show I realized I never did get around to acquiring his autograph when his name popped into my head months ago. Time to fix that little mistake. I did not expect a high demand or price tag for his autograph and didn't care if the card showed him in a Reds or Yankees uniform. Only thing that matter that it was an on card signature.

Back to my go to brand, Five Star, to see what was available and I found this copy on the bay on a BIN auction with best offer. Let's see how much I can squeeze the seller for. He was asking $15 for it so I sent him a nice little offer or $8 to test the waters. Surprise, surprise he took the offer with no counter. Well that was easy. Card arrived promptly and in great condition. Watching TV doesn't just "dumb" you down it also lightens your wallet. Ha Ha


Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.
