The Champ Is Here!

Did everyone have a nice Christmas this year? 
Mine was fantastic. 
Right off the bat I got this sweet Bo Jackson Royal Blue Jersey relic from my wife's family Secret Santa gift exchange.  We used this website to draw names and it allowed us to put stuff up that we would like with links to amazon so I did a little relic searching and threw up some links to ones that caught my eye.
This was one of the first that I found to put on my wish list and am happy I got it!

2009 Upper Deck Icons Legendary Icons Relic LI-BJ
I don't have to tell anyone how amazing Bo Jackson was.  Its great to add a relic of his to my collection!
I also got a Blaster of 2013 Topps Allen & Ginter and a 2012 Topps Update Rack Pack from my sister in my own family's Secret Santa Gift Exchange with some neat inserts.
However the best news I got over the holidays was Peyton Manning throwing 400 yards and 4 TDs and leading me to a Fantasy Football Championship!  I had a co owner for my team this year and split the kitty with him and then split that again with my wife because I likes to share my spoils of victory with her.
So all said and done I have $120 towards some new cards or card!
The smart thing to do would be to get some cards that I need to complete some sets, but the other part of me wants to find the nicest most valuable card at a bargain price.  I'm currently bidding on one now.  I doubt very much I'll win it, but I'm winning right now anyway.  If it falls to me well, lets just say AWWWEEESSSSOOOMMMEEE.
Check it out...
Fingers crossed I land it... if not I'll keep looking.  I'm going to play the patience game and get a steal.
In other news I'm not sure the Harper for Machado trade is going to go down.  We never had the chance to meet up before Christmas and low and behold my man got a Bowman Chrome Machado rookie auto.  He has yet to get back to me in regards to a deal still going down, but at this point I doubt it. 
Not a big deal... the Machado is still a great card and am happy to hang on to it.
I hope everyone else did well!  Look forward to reading all about it.  I'll update what I end up getting with my winnings.  Hopefully it's a real gem!
Thanks for reading
