This is the last, but not least, post showing the cards I got in my Comc shipment. I'm kind of glad I'm finishing them up today, because it's almost a month since I got them. I'm really working this month on taking care of my backlog, because it's better to blog about cards when the excitement of acquisition is still fresh. I hope to have it all worked off by some time in February.
Anyway, the cards.
A solid back, though not as nice as the Polar Bears or Piedmonts from T206.
So that's it from my COMC shipment. I got a lot of cards which I really liked, and I hope y'all enjoyed seeing them. Thanks for reading!

My Comc shipment came December 28th, so that was a pleasant surprise. I had anticipated waiting for months, which was not a pleasant thought. But a mini-miracle happened, so yay!
I had been buying cards from March onward, finally shipping them after Black Friday, so I ended up with a decent pile of cards. They were all vintage, as I love vintage cards. Which you can probably tell from reading my blog.
Since I got 80 cards, and want to show them all, I've decided that I'll break them up over 3 posts in total. This one will feature all the odd-balls, of which I got plenty.

I believe that in my last post I mentioned that three of my '56 Topps cards were still in the mail. Well, the last card came on Saturday, so now all 9 are accounted for. I love 1956 Topps, so I'm very happy to have gotten Yankees for Christmas. Anyway, here they are:

Trading is the best way to acquire cards, in my opinion. And trading in-person is the best way to trade. It's a lot more personal, and it's just funner. No shipping fees, either. The problem with trading in-person is that there has to be someone who lives fairly near you who collects baseball cards. Which is the hard part. So hard, that until fairly recently (OK, a month ago, this post is overdue) I hadn't been able to trade in person since Winter 2018.
But, thankfully, I was finally able to find someone to trade with. We were able to meet in late November, and it was very fun talking baseball (he's as obsessed about baseball as me, which is saying a lot) and trading cards. He has 3 or 4 younger brothers, I can't remember the exact number, and they all collect baseball cards too. So I actually had a lot of people to trade with. I recommended baseballcardstore.ca to him, and I believe that he's made an order with his younger brothers.
He's a Giants fan, so I was able to get plenty of unwanted Giants off my hands in exchange for cards I like. I got a lot of cards with fun photography.
