Scott Erickson, 1998 Donruss Silver Press Proof #242

There are many valuable pieces of advice that I can give fellow collectors for taking proper care of your card collection. You probably know most of the basics (store your cards in Ultra-Pro binder sheets, keep them out of the reach of children and pets, don't place them in damp areas, etc.). But perhaps the most important pointer that I can offer is this: if you own large quantities of cards from the late 1990s, do not take them outside. If you do, a flock of magpies will be attracted to their shiny, foil-coated, die-cut, holographic nuttiness and will descend upon you, pecking at your soft flesh and your juicy eyes until you relinquish your grip on the glittery goods.

Consider yourself forewarned.

Sage advice.

By the way, bought my first packs of 2010 toady (1 Topps, 1 UD). Luke Scott and O's Card w/ Reimold, Jone, & Markakis in the Topps; Jim Johnson in the UD. A good start to the 2010 card season.

Dave - Nice pulls! It sounds like that Luke Scott card is making the rounds.
