You might remember when I posted the Tom Seaver autograph and the Brandon Sutter manu-nameplate as the cards I picked up at COMC when I sold an inscribed SPA auto of Nick Suzuki there.
I didn't quite show everything off that date.
There was still one more big card I grabbed. It wasn't really a PC item, but it was a card that I'd wanted to add for quite a while. Not so much this specific card, but one of these:
Out of 18-19 Engrained, this is my first (probably only) Bobby Orr autograph in my collection. The set had a wood grain feel to it, but it is flat on the autograph portion to make for a nice clean signature. I love the extreme leftward slant of his southpaw signature. Somewhat surprisingly when I looked at the checklist, Orr, along with Mike Modano and Rod Brind'amour, were Group C autos, the most common in the legends portion of this subset, falling 1:22 packs/boxes, with the legends overall being 1:12. Despite being a higher-end set, that's far more common I'd expect for an Orr auto.
But there being more available than you'd expect is a good problem to have when it comes to adding a wanted auto to the collection.
Quite the start to the year!
