Recent Pulls

Some of my recent pulls from the past weekend, as well as a couple of redemptions...

2010 Topps Sterling George Sisler #9/10 5pc relic

2010 Topps Sterling Andre Dawson #19/25 4pc relic

2010 Bowman Platinum Alex Dickerson patch auto #53/199

2010 Bowman Chrome Scott McGough auto #13/99 (wrapper redemption)

2010 Topps Sterling Luman Harris Cut Auto #1/1. Problem here is the card says Charlie Harris. However, Charlie Harris appears to be a player from 1899 that played in something like 30 games, whereas Luman Harris (Chalmer Luman Harris) is more likely the signature in the card. ( Needless to say Topps screwed up on this 1/1 cut auto.

And finally, my huge pull. I finally got my 2010 Bowman Chrome Stephen Strasburg refractor auto #311/500.
