Although the Upper Deck Masterpieces Press Plate that I picked up was the first actual purchase I made for my collection, it wasn’t the first card I took possession of. The combination of Canada Post and the USPS made sure of that, with their seemingly random distribution of mail. I’m used to it by now, so I don’t worry too much until a month has passed.
The first arrival for my collection was also my first autograph. Bowman Sterling is a very nice looking set, and while I am not a huge fan of the silver foil stickers some card companies use, with the right card design they can be really sharp. Sterling is one of those sets.
