First of all, I would like to wish everyone a happy (early) Thanksgiving. Aside from the really important stuff like friends, family, health, etc., what are you thankful for in 2009 when it relates to this hobby of ours?
I am personally thankful for all the support Wax Heaven receives from collectors and the card companies. We may not always agree but I feel like this site is still one of the best when it comes to generating interest in collecting.
Over the year I have received many great cards from friends of the site but I’d have to say that I am most thankful for the trade between myself and Kory from eBay Card of the Day.
Kory went out and purchased three of the four most hard to find 2007 Finest Andrew Miller cards and sent them my way in exchange for some random autographs and game-used relics. Although he was pleased with the offering, I am forever in his debt.
So there you have it. This is what I am thankful for hobby-wise. What would be on your list? A once in a lifetime pull? A “hot box”? Maybe a super-rare retail autograph? If you got something to be thankful for, let it be known!
Contests & Giveaways
If you haven’t joined the Social Network, now may be the best time to do so. We are nearing 200 members and I have already given away tons of stuff. We may not have the clout to receive cases of Exquisite Basketball from Upper Deck, but the prizes have not been too shabby.
Check out what deceased WWE superstar’s autograph Jamoke pulled from the box of 2009 Topps WWE I gave away last month. In my opinion, that’s one o the best autographs in the entire product.
That’s not all, check out the huge lot of cards Lonestarr won. It includes a very coveted Tools of the Trade Prime Jersey #’d to 5 Deion Sanders I pulled from a Panini sample box a while back.
You can expect many more giveaways before 2009 winds down.
