A day of One on Ones !

This morning I received a package in the mail. Only one place this package could come from, as my trading has been very, very slow, and that's CheckOutMyCards ! COMC has been my standard mailbox in the US to receive my eBay loot and although it has been slow in recent months I was still able to collect a bunch of cool cards for my collection.

Here's what was in the package and let's focus on a huge collection of One-on-Ones ! First up, a cool Panini Pantheon card. A card with a button ! My 2nd button card after the 2014 Panini National Treasurers card of Glavine. Always a welcome variety versus all the jersey and bat cards.


Next up, two 2008 Moments & Milestones. The sporadically pop-up on eBay and if the price is decent I try to get them. I still have some 275 or so to go :-)


I was also able to get my hands on a cool 2017 Topps Tribute 1/1, pictured below. A really beautiful card. The Topps High Tek printing proof from 2014 is my second one of this series.


Lastly, two more 1-1s, a printing plate from the 2014 Panini Hall of Fame Baseball set (Magenta priting plate). Furthermore, a 2004 SP Authentic card, a set in which apperently there are a few 1-1s for several "events", this one for 15th April 2003.



That's it. Never opened a package with 7x 1-1s so really happy about it. I updated and checked my file and I now just passed the 2,250 different Glavine cards mark, representing some 31% of all different Glavine cards. As I own 47% of all Auto cards and 38% of all relic cards I should be able to lift the average to 40% or so by simply expanding Glavine's non auto/relic cards. Looking at the 1-1s, I now have some 15% of all Glavine 1-1s. A lot of statistics but love to track the numbers !!

Hope you all are doing well !

  1. 15% of all 1/1s? That's pretty sweet!
    The button relics are still my favorite and eventually I'll have to land myself one.

  2. Well, 15% of the 1-1s that are listed in Beckett. I do come across some 1/1s now and then that are not in Beckett, in particular printing plates from older sets.
