1889 Allen & Ginter: A New Card for Me!

It's been quite some time since I've been able to add to my 1889 Allen & Ginter Fish from American Waters set.  Basically, I keep a search open on eBay that alerts me whenever new cards are posted - and then I try to pick off any relatively cheap cards that I can (assuming I still need them).

Amazingly enough (to me at least), my 1889 set now stands at 18 out of the 50 possible fish!  My newest addition is this wonderful looking Sturgeon.

I love it!

I may not be buying much in the way of 2013 products (exactly $0 spent so far) but that doesn't mean that I'm not collecting something.  I think the fish set has provided one of the biggest collecting "thrills" for me so far - certainly much more in the way of thrills than yet another David DeJesus autograph or Neil Walker relic card ever would.
Fairly nice back of the card!

If you are interested, you can view my entire collection (including the Sturgeon) by visiting my page devoted to the set.
