Here are the three non-Eltons I got. (I have a hard time picking singles to buy, and am usually all over the place, but then I had the idea to get Eltons. These were the three I picked before I had decided)
|2005-06 Topps Chrome Refractor. My first card of him. Love the D-League and this is the only set they got cards.|
|2007-08 Bowman, my first Thaddeus Young RC, and only card in my collection showing this jersey. You'll see it again when I get to the Sixers in Uniform History.|
|2008-08 Topps Chrome Refractor. It doesn't show well in the scan but this is card #80, Josh Smith.|
In addition to these cards, I did something I have not done in 13 years. I bought myself a wearable jersey! The last time I got one was Christmas 2003, when my brother gave me two of them.
Naturally, it's one of Elton's.
I'd get some more, but the jerseys are expensive. Also, I really have nowhere to wear them. I basically go only to the doctor's office and on average 6 to 8 of the possible 23 model club meetings each year. I'd love to get a set of the Warriors' "Big 3" but that would be more than $200 BEFORE tax and shipping; I just can't do it. The Mitchell & Ness throwback jerseys- some of which I remember from when they were current!- are even more expensive.
But, I'm thrilled that I was able to get this one of Elton, and I expect to wear it proudly, and often!
