Earlier this week, my comissions came through from work and I found myself with a few extra dollars. Thanks to good work performances, I got an extra $500 amex gift card due to my winning a contest, which has provided me with an opportunity to get some cards I was eyeing. I wanted to get a Peterson SPA, but due to eBay gift card policies, I was only able to get a $200 card with the amex, leaving $300 to use at my disposal other places online.

First, I wanted to use part of the money to get some wax that I knew I would never spend actual money on. So, I bought 2 boxes of 2008 SPA, a product I was not able to buy at release because of lack of disposable income. Blowout will be shipping them to me, and I will be breaking them here next week. Then, I went to the local shop and spent the other 100 on a box of Philadelphia and a few cards I had won on the auction board. Per my usual luck I pulled a Mario Williams auto and two crap jerseys that I gave to a fan at the store.
With the other 200 I had to spend on eBay, I bought a 2009 Philadelphia Adrian Peterson National Chilcle Mini auto that should be numbered to five and a few Percy Harvin cards I liked. The card I bought is a redemption, but after seeing that he had signed all of his Black cards, I thought there may be a chance that the card would be in stock. Luckily, I was right, and the card should be shipped soon.
So, for my 500 bucks, I ended up with 2 Harvin autos, 3 boxes, and a ridiculously great looking and low numbered Peterson auto. Too bad I couldnt get the SPA, but she will be mine. Oh yes... She will be mine.
