Thanks! My mom's family is from Norway and Ireland and Germany on my dad's side so no surprise with the red beard. I actually read somewhere once that red facial hair with brown head hair is a genetic deformity that only occurs in less than 5% of people, so technically I'm a mutant.

I bet that is why, the ones I see pop up on eBay are all damaged too. It just sucks cause these are tough pulls from Series 1 and they come out damaged.

I wanted to post this up in case you didn't have it. I pulled it from a Jumbo box of 2011 Topps Update I found a few months back in Longview on my way down to the Oregon Coast.

2011 Topps Next 60 Duston Ackley Auto RC


Apparently a few of the autos from the set were SSP and Ackley happens to be one of them.
I used to go to the Oregon Coast with my Grandparents almost every summer so that place will always hold a spot in my heart. We would always stay at Depoe Bay and go to Mo's. Just thinking about it is making me plan a trip this summer. That card is a tough pull! I've only seen a few of them for sale online and they are always at or around $200+

Hey Bill! Did you buy the 2011 Finest mosaic auto that was listed on ebay a few days ago? I was thinking about pulling the trigger on it as $139 seemed like a pretty good deal. I think I have only seen one other pulled and listed. Just wondering. Go M's!

I wanted that so bad but sadly I didn't snag it. I'm letting my bank account recoup itself after the Canary, a new lawn mower, and a drunken night to Safeco last night. The price was good and I noticed the same guy was selling an auto'd plate, which means I would have only needed the purple and Super for the auto rainbow, but I just couldn't do it.

I hear ya! I need a new pressure washer! LOL. The one good thing about Ackley's very slow adjustment to the bigs is cheaper card prices. I paid $150 for a 2010 BC blue ref auto a year ago. I would have taken that mosaic over that.Nice to see the M's playing better as a team too.

I remember at release, his Finest autos /499 were selling for 20-25 a piece and now you can get them for 5-10 all day. As much as I would love for him to explode on scene, the saving grace is the cheaper prices. I'm not into PC'ing him for the money (obviously) but more for the fact that I just enjoy watching him play.
