    0 feedback seller...terrible picture....and I couldn't hit "Buy" fast enough. Been prowling for one of these for a while now. Have been working on my run of PSA 10 Trout base Golds for about 15 months now and Ive found this to be the co-toughest along with the 2012. Obviously 2011 update is by far the most expensive, but certainly not terribly difficult to come across.

    Always looking for tougher PSA 10's of Nolan Arenado, Alex Bregman, Mookie Betts, Francisco Lindor, and Mike Trout.

    There were 3 Trout cards in the Topps release in 2013...and I love all of them! The "Sliding" card is my favorite! I have several of the parallels that extend from Opening Day, Chrome and Mini. Awesome that you have the gold in Gem Mint 10! :)

    I took a shot at this pup raw for half the price a seller on Ebay sought in a PSA 10 holder..... its a good feeling buying raw to avoid the premium and then indeed avoiding the premium! It just came today, 2/1/19, after being received 12/12/18 by PSA for grading.

    A Jordan card.

    Griffey hopping over a ground ball. I suppose it is an action shot.. Not may most favorite one from UD, but I will take it.

    The front of the case has some markings on it which detracts from the eye appeal, but pretty sharp otherwise.

    We had this janitor named Mr. Larry. He was held back so many times, they just made him a janitor. His trick was to come in while you're at the urinal and pee over you.

    Thank you. The AS card is a tough one to find that is centered.

    Went to Walmart today to grab a few things for the family and made a rare basketball wax purchase simce they had 3 Panini Prizm mega boxes. I live in a very densely populated and busy suburban area and this Walmart rarely has anything good available and if they do it gets snapped up very quickly.

    So I was seriously pumped up when I ripped this one this evening!!

    Been waiting to take this pic of these two 1/1 Superfractors! Was so pumped that Topps used a specific, memorable moment for the card on the left, as opposed to a more "normal" baseball card picture.

  • stwainfanstwainfan ✭✭✭✭ Posts: 426 ✭✭✭✭

    a couple more cards.

    The hardcore folks around here may remember I was able to nab a few of these last month but missed out on the one I really wanted. These are a relatively scarce Cuban issue from the 1940s that happened to be chock full of both retired AND active stars: Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Christy Mathewson, Jimmy Foxx, Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams, to name a few. Lucky for me, the guy who won the one I was after had missed the one he really wanted (Ruth) and was great to work with so hopefully by early next week, I’ll have this one in hand. Believe it or not, this is actually a pretty nice looking example for the issue...

    Have purchased 1 hanger box of 2019 Topps....and Im thinking thats going to be about it as far as unopened for this particular series. Just going to enjoy focusing on picking off singles that I like/want.

    Was also fired up to reach a deal for this card as well. Really excited to add this one to the collection.

    Maybe a coincidence and maybe not but I jumped all over this one when I saw it fairly priced. It’s quite funny that this popped up when it did, timing wise, for me.

    I really like the whole story and the subjects with this set; seemed to capture the entire sporting world as a snapshot in time from the turn of the century to just after the Second World War...
