Another sweet surprise waiting for me when I opened my mailbox yesterday. Inside was the Magic Johnson Autographed card that I won in an Ebay auction. My final total came to $46, which included the shipping. Just an unbelievable deal for this card. Not only does it feature an autograph of Magic, but it was graded 9.5 GEM MINT by Beckett Grading Service (BGS).
I placed a bid just for the hell of it. Never in my craziest dreams did I imagine that I would get this card. Growing up, I was a big fan of the Showtime Lakers – Magic, Kareem, Worthy, Cooper, Byron Scott, Kurt Rambis, Pat Riley, and all the rest. My basketball card collection isn’t as huge as baseball and football. So this is a great card to add to my collection!
In addition to the Magic Johnson card, I also got the following cards. All were won on Ebay.
- 2007 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects Chrome Autographed card featuring Padres 2007#1 draft pick Nick Schmidt.
- 2006 Bowman Autographed card of Kyle Blanks. A first baseman, Blanks is one of the Padres top prospects and is currently performing very well in San Antonio.
- 2007 Upper Deck Spectrum Autographed card of Padres 3B Kevin Kouzmanoff.
- A 2005 Fleer Showcase Autographed card of Khalil Greene. I already have this card in my collection so let me know if you’re interested.
- 2007 Donruss Elite Extra Editions ‘Aspirations’ parallel card of Brad Chalk. Chalk, a 2007 2nd round pick, is currently playing for the Fort Wayne Wizards.
- 2008 Upper Deck Spectrum Jersey card of Jake Peavy.

- A pair of Padres team sets. The 2008 Upper Deck (series 1 & 2) and the 2008 Bowman sets.
