My Pirates collection will always be the bulk of my collecting focus. Though there were some points where my more frequent readers definitely would have noticed that this blog would have been more aptly titled "A Bunch of Shiny Cards from the 90's." But there have been a few projects that have been on my collecting back burner for years that I'm finally starting to put some hobby dollars behind. And it's been really rewarding to see a range of sets and cards trickling in, rather than just feeling like I'm compulsively buying Pirates.
And it just so happens that I seem to buying in pairs. None of these cards came from the same seller, making it that much more unusual. But sometimes life just works out that way.
I've been slowly plugging away at the 1998 Donruss Signature autograph set for years now. Due to some low print run cards of some of the stars, I'll never officially complete the base version, let alone any of the parallel sets. But boy is it a nice set.
Mail keeps trickling in, and I have a few other pairs on the way. So who knows, this may become an unintentional ongoing theme.
