J.K. Dobbins

I purchased a 3 card lot of Panini XR 2 numbered to /199 and the other an Auto/Jersey card of J.K. Dobbins off of EBay mainly because I needed an auto for the Ravens Autograph collection and the prices for his stuff have been insane but this was relatively a good deal.

Happy New Year's

Just want to wish everyone a better 2021 then 2020 was.  Also, I don't really do resolutions but will set a few hobby related goals one is a carry over from 2020 which is to complete a trade a week which is a total of 52 during 2021.  So if you want to trade let me know I'm always looking for unwanted autographs of anybody I don't have any sport or non-sport from any of the card companies. Also, will look at anything of Tom Seaver, Dan Marino, Carter Hart & The Baltimore Ravens.  

Happy New Year's to all!
