Constant vigilance

Yeah yeah yeah, you have all heard it by now.  I go hard after my masterpieces sets.  I've screwed up and missed out on a few cards, but not many.  While at the Portland airport to pick up the wife I thought I would check out Check out my Cards.  I can't tell you how many times I check COMC per day, let's just say it's a lot.  I come up empty most of the time, but not today.  Today I found this:
Walter Metallic /50.  In fact, there were two of them for $10 each.  There are a lot of Walter fans out there.  He is much like Griffey, Ripken, Mattingly, Montana, Manning etc, his cards are always popular and always sell well.  His /34 silver Parallel went for $60 last time it was on ebay.  I picked one up as part of a lot for much less.  Anyway I jumped all over them just as the wife was getting her bags and I was in line in the car to get her.  I was able to put both in my shopping cart, hit the pay by Paypal, enter my password and click pay.  It was quite an achievement.

At least the annoying Port of Portland police weren't yelling at you to move along while trying to buy your much needed card!
