March Contest Part 4: Best Card of 2012

I'm not talking about 2012 Topps necessarily. I want to know the best card you've added to your collection in 2012. It could be a jersey, an auto or something vintage.

Just leave a comment with your answer and you'll get another entry into the March Contest.

The last question is coming up tomorrow.

  1. Mine would have to be a 1959 Topps Bill Mazeroski I added to my HOF collection last month.

  2. Mine is a 2005 Donruss Impressions Andres Galarraga bat card. It is the only Rockies relic that the Big Cat ever had and now it is mine. The only one that could top it is the only Dante Bichette Rockies relic which I hope to track down soon.

  3. Another Tough one. I've got quite a few candidates but I think I'll go vintage with the "Killer" 1968 Topps Harmon Killebrew AS #361

  4. haven't really added that many cards in the pc collection in 2012, but I'd have to say the 2011-12 Limited PK Subban jersey card /299.

    It's the first relic card I have of him.

  5. Damn, another tough question. I have yet to post on this pickup, but I managed to land a dual Dominion auto of Ryan Getzlaf and J.S. Giguere /25 celebrating the Ducks '07 Stanley Cup victory.

    It is really, really, REALLY close though with another yet-to-be-posted MAJOR addition.

  6. Probably the 1999 Stadium Club Autographs Todd Helton, my first Helton auto and it's on card as a bonus.

  7. A 2011 Topps Update Alex Presley gold parallel RC. He's from my hometown, and he also signed TTM for me recently, so pulling in a parallel RC was pretty cool.

  8. Probably the 1963 Topps "Big Three" card of Koufax, Drysdale and Podres.

    The year is young so I can't wait to see what else I get.

  11. It's not a great addition, but a 1990 Score signed Lenny Webster card has been my favorite. He was my mom's favorite so there is that soft spot.

  25. I nabbed my first Tigers Diamond Stars card with Jo-Jo White for a great price. I haven't posted it yet, so, teaser! It's a beauty of a card. Second place goes to the uncensored 1989 Fleer Billy Ripken I found in a dollar box. I just posted about this one.
