AWESOME cards! Thats a GREAT PC! And congrats on hitting the 500 mark! I just hit 150+ on my Campy PC and thought I was doing good. LOL
And yes, the new Photobucket is terrible! I switched back to the old view and haven't had any trouble with it at all. Pretty typical for a company to take a useful product and make it useless. It must be run by Microsoft (Windows 8 anyone?).Looking for all Roy Campanella cards: base, inserts, GU, anything I don't have is fair game.

Thanks, you guys. I appreciate the kind words.
Today I want to show off those game used gloves I framed in a shadow box.
I did what I'd read to do and cut out cardboard fingers, wrapped them in gauze to stuff the gloves and used clean magnets to hold the gloves in place. With the matting and Marquee card I'm pretty happy with the display. I also bought a 2012 All Star Votto Jersey that I'd wanted to put behind the gloves in the frame (and I may still do that 'cause I bet the blue background would look good), but at the moment I'm debating whether or not to just put the jersey in a seperate frame.
Anyways, here's the display. Everybody's welcome to let me konw what you think. If you think it's bland I can take criticism. lol
and here's a few pickups:
2012 Triple Threads Sapphire Unity Patch, 1/3
012 Bowman Chrome Orange Refractor, 13/25.
2010 Finest Gold Refractor, /50
2012 Five Star, /80
2012 Five Star Jumbo Relic, /92
2012 Topps Update Gold Parallel Relic, /50

Joey Votto, 2009 Topps Unique Jumbo Patch Auto 2/15
Joey Votto, 2012 Triple Threads All Star Triple Patch Relic 1/1
2011 Prime Cuts /5
That's about it on the cards. Been kinda slow, plus outta nowhere his auctions are ending too high so I'm going in another direction for the moment.
Here's two items from 2012 that I intend to add behind my 2012 GU batting gloves in the shadow box above:
And here's my new team signed bat from 2007 that I absolutely love:
Has about 20 signatures from 2007 Reds Spring Training including Griffey Jr., Hamilton, and Votto.
I'll swap the pictures for better ones when I can.
*Also* all that sunlight is not the norm. The room is kept blacked out for the most part and I only opened the window for the pictures. So no worries there.

Thanks, you guys. I appreciate that.
About a week ago I made a list of cards I hoped to find in 2013. So far I've only listed maybe 10 cards on it, but like two days after writing it I found a card from the list and was able to pick it up.
It's a 2010 Topps Sterling Booklet dual auto & patch /relic of Votto and Larry Walker /10.
Tough to get a good picture of, but it's beautiful in person.
