After the success of the first lot, I figured that I would try and win the second one. Better for the seller, but not as good for me, the second lot ran up to $4.50 (plus $8.00 shipping) - a bit of an increase over the $0.25 that I won the previous lot for. Once again, I set expectations fairly low figuring that I might see a lot of doubles from the previous lot in this lot but thinking that even if I didn't get very many cards that I needed, that the orders would average out nicely. I set my hopes low, hoping to get at least 25 cards that I needed, which would be $0.50 per needed card - a ratio that I could live with, especially after the last lot.
Well, once again, the lot proved more than worthy of the bid, it had just over 80 cards that I needed. I'll pick out some through the years, cutting my new acquisitions almost in half.

With this lot, I added around a dozen Tim Couch cards that I needed. He is the player that I own the most different cards of, and I keep getting more. The sad thing is that I still need so many more of his cards.

More Tim Couch inserts. I like the Skybox Superlatives insert and how it models itself after a comic book cover.

|Gerard Warren from 2001, others from 2002|
|I like the retro style cards that Fleer put out|

I don't know if there are many Tim Couch cards that reflect him signing with the Packers. It was nice to get this card.
The Upper Deck Power Up is a little freaky.

And I'm never upset to add new Jim Brown cards to my collection.
|A Brady bunch!|
The bottom two cards are both numbered, with the Edwards being #/250 and the Anderson #/75.
As you might have guessed, I was pretty pleased with this lot, filling in some holes from 1999-2008. It was enough that I was willing to push my luck again on the next Browns lot that the seller listed. That auction also ended at $4.50. Did my luck run out? We'll find out next post.
