That's right Sasha Fierce, you tell em. It's time to show off a few new upgrades for my collection, and all four of these look super nice and are thanks to one awesome EBay seller who goes by the tag Maize.
This Maize character put a couple rarer Seneca Wallace cards up on Ebay, and I didn't need any of them but it looked like the kind of stuff that meant he had more good things hidden behind the curtain. So I messaged him and asked what else he had to see if I could score a wantlist need or two. He had nothing I needed, but he did throw around the word patch several times, and that piqued my interest for sure. With Seneca cards it's hard to find game worn patches, and here the guy was promising four different cards with game worn collegiate patches, all three colors or more. Needless to say I asked for scans right away!
He did me one better and threw all the cards up on EBay in three separate auctions. They all looked great and the prices were even better so I threw in my bids and hoped it'd be enough. Somehow no one else bid against me even on the nicest of the patches, and after a little combined shipping I paid about $14 for four cards. Not bad at all considering how they look!
The first two are both Fleer Platinum Alma Materials patches. My one patch was a barely two color where the red was kind of falling off the card. So these are both big upgrades:
The next card was a BIG upgrade. As some know I love me some Sage jerseys, and before this deal my Sage Silver /50 was a one color yellow (numbering) patch, which is awesome but could be more colorful. Well now I have this awesome three color patch:
Finally we come to the creme de la creme of this purchase. I'll let the card speak for itself to begin:
That's right...this is my first LOGO PATCH of Seneca, definitely a sweet find and my jaw dropped when I saw the guy had it available! Technically it's 6 colors, and here's a closer look at it right side up:
Here's the back:
