Another Listia win becomes one of my lower numbered Wizard cards.
At this point, I'd probably make a better player collector than a team collector. It's much easier to rationalize a single card pickup here and there, but I've always had a hard time with buying singles because the thrill factor isn't really there for me. I like the sense of randomness. I like looking at groups of cards rather than one or two. I don't want to keep most of those cards, but it's fun to go through them and critique the photos and look at the words and numbers on the back.
Even though I hadn't bought any cards in bulk (until yesterday! spoilers!) all summer, I've been sticking by Listia (and to a lesser extent, COMC) as an outlet to pick up a few interesting things. I snagged this sepia mini, numbered 25 of 50, by using the "get it now" option. I wouldn't say that I scored a major deal exactly, but I had the credits and typically have some stiff competition for Cardinals cards on that site. This one is mine, though. You can't have it.
