I stopped in at Don's Sportcards here in Anchorage last week. My wife was picking up my son so I was kid free and decided to just pop in to Don's to see if there was anything interesting and to pick up a couple boxes for a couple sets I was putting together. Don has a great feature in his shop called the drop board. It's a huge section of wall with peg board and hooks and he hangs a bunch of cards and packs up. Each card is listed with a price. Usually a good 20 to 25% off from the Beckett price and ever week that card doesn't sell it gets marked down a little till it reaches a dollar and that's the lowest it'll go. But I've picked all sorts of good relics, autographs, and vintage from that drop board for crazy low prices, a lot of them for the bottom dollar price. Well to my surprise Don had a ton of this year's Panini Cooperstown hanging on the wall. All sorts of inserts and autographs from the set. And then I saw the Ignitor just sitting there marked down to I think it was six whole dollars. I couldn't pass it up. I'm not a huge collector of Paul Molitor, but he was a Brewers for most of his career, is still beloved in Milwaukee, and I do have a nice stack of his cards in my collection, but I didn't have an autographed card till now. I have a sweet relic I picked up years ago, rookie cards and everything in between, and now I have my first, but hopefully not last auto of the #2 all time top Brewer. On top of that I haven't added a card to my Top 100 in while. I had to look and see what number I stopped on. So this is card #72 in my Top 100 cards in my collection (the number is not the card's rank in the Top 100, the Top 100 has no rankings).
Welcome to the collection.
