Happy Birthday to Me - A COMC "Card Show" - Part 1

My birthday was just about a month ago now. Since I don't typically get anything sports card-related as a gift (though I did receive an eBay gift card from my mother-in-law), I decided to treat myself this year. I loaded $75 of credit into my COMC account on a Saturday with a couple of hours to kill and treated it like my own virtual card show.$75 is much more than I'd typically spend on COMC, but I justified this because A) I haven't busted a single wax box of cards all year and have generally been doing a good job sticking to my hobby budget in 2016, and B) I haven't made the regularly scheduled card show in my area in over 6 months now.
