    2011 Topps American Pie Joe Louis retires spotlight refractor, numbered to /76. I have only come across two of these cards in my years of collecting Joe Louis cards, and I managed to get both of them. I love the design.

  • More slabs scanned. Another of the 2004 Prestige Achievements and like before scanners hate shiney surfaces so I had to use teh phone pic again but of course its a cheap phone. Love the Mantle UD Heroes subset always a favorite of mine. Can't seem to bring that Mantle into focus will have to do




  • I remember buying $5 complete boxes of Pro Set when no one wanted them- glad I did. Still a classic underappreciated early 90's set.

    More for my 1997 Finest subsets and a Bonds I just love as it reminds me how great Pacific inserts were mid 90s thru 2001
    I'll take Mint 9 and above all year long and twice on Sundays on Pacific items

    picked these up tonight

    Just picked this up. I have a feeling his early auto cards are a strong investment. This kid is going to be a hall of famer and will break many records if he stays healthy. Maybe even the next "Tom Brady". We'll see. I just simply like the card too.

    There is no chance he’s the next Tom Brady. None. He’s a nice athlete and he’s got a great arm but he’s already hurt, the Chiefs are not catching people by surprise anymore and they are coached by a talented guy who could never win the big one.

    And the ‘stats’? As the rules become even more about creating more scoring, they’ll water down what Pat has done already - just like what has already happened to Dan Marino.

    Edited to add: I think the card is awesome and he’s certainly got huge upside as both card and player. He is a stud - for sure - and I think Russell Wilson, another future Hall of Famer, is the better comparison.

    Curious about the rare, mysterious and beautiful 1951 Wheaties Premium Photos?

    Nice pickup. I've been loading up on Mahomes as well while his cards have 'dipped' since the injury. Guy is an absolute stud. XR is a really overlooked product IMO.

    First Luka RPA I've gotten. He should be all-NBA if he keeps up his current pace. Really astounding what he's doing for his age.

  • Nice pickups folks ! And Toys R Us cards always get me going :D

    If you care for a challenge try gemming 1997 Topps Chrome Football cards. There are a total of 6302 cards that have been sent in . Of these a whopping 4596 cards ( 72.9%) got the Min 9 grade and just 945 cards (15%) gem. The rest of the roughly 12% were 8 or even lower . Just a bear of a series. As was 1997 Topps Chrome baseball. Off center, poor corners, surface issues, and some of the industry's worst packaging and sealing seen- everything you don't want to see if your a bulk slabber.
    But the series is beautiful and if you get a refractor some of these cards like the Magicians pop :o

    But I figure what the hey let's see what I can do. I luck on 2 boxes cheaply, pop a pack open and realize God's blessed me with a rare centered box. Break it publicly and set aside the cards. Come across them when they ran those $7.50 price specials so I sent 10 or so in.

    First group of 5 is back. To say I'm estatic is an understatment. I may have sworn a little ( colorful expletives insert on your own) in happiness o:)

    Seau - Pop 2 with none higher
    Sanders - Pop 2
    McNair - Pop 1
    Mitchell - Pop 1
    Hardy - Pop 1

    Fisk was PC item didn't look it up

    Thanks Dan! Have been trying to upgrade my PSA5 for several years and finally did. There are three 8's out there and nothing higher, so my search for the "best" in this issue is over.

    Nice Venezuelans!!!!

    Unidentified card panel with Joe Louis. I don't know where it came from or who made it, but I love the image of Joe Louis on the panel, so I nabbed it at a good price.

    While a big part of my collection is Mickey Mantle heavy, I collect vintage Yankees cards (and some modern, too). Point being, there’s a large amount of items and eras to sift through. The combination of price, great players and material means that there is downside in that, quite frankly, I will never have it all. It’s like starting a T206 set (I guess) and realizing from the outset that barring a miracle you are not going to have Plank and Wagner. I can’t see ever getting the Baltimore News Ruth or the 1952 Topps Mantle into the stable. However, the upside is there in that It creates opportunities too. Which brings me to my latest pickup. One of the first mythic Bronx baseball teams that get a mention for greatest baseball team ever assembled is the 1927 Murderer’s Row Yankees. As such, I always wanted a card associated with that special season and this card scratches that itch. While often found on sheets (even now) and definitely hand cut, these aren’t really ‘strip’ cards; they’re a set of playing cards. The 64 card set is mostly baseball and features big stars like Babe Ruth, Walter Johnson, Al Simmons, Lefty Grove, Jimmie Foxx and Goose Goslin. And a young superstar first baseman who four years prior was still playing in NYC, albeit at Columbia University.

    1927 W560 3 of Clubs - Lou Gehrig

    That Lou Gehrig card is bad to the bone!

    I know zero about this set, a million of them out there? I don’t do basketball but these were given to me. The whole set is here and I don’t really know what I have.

    I don't understand. Did you purchase a BCCG 10 or did the seller send you the wrong card?

    It's one of my favorites, I love how so many of his low dollar 90's cards just look awesome, makes it so much more fun to collect them again 20-25+ years later.

    Main collecting focus is Patrick Roy inserts/game-used/autograph cards.
    Also collecting Cal Ripken Jr., Ken Griffey Jr. and Frank Thomas; Donovan McNabb rookie cards.

    Didn’t have time to scan it but bought this with my bucks for last quarter. ‘68 is one of the three HOF sets I am working on. The purple thing above his head is on Every Morgan. Not sure what it is but it seems to be part of the picture.

  • Some serious eye candy being shown nice pickups folks !!

    More goodies back from the special. Happy with some positive results on my first foray into non-sports
    A while back bought some boxes to help a friend doing a BGS set as he needed some holograms
    Set these aside and figured I'd send in to PSA some good first subs back

    The Bonds International is a Pop 3
    The Helton a Pop 1 and part of a project
    The Jeter Lineage a Pop 5 and his Finest Bronze with coating one of dozens
    The Wolverine Berserk is a Pop 1 just 1 higher
    The Wolverine First Defeat is a Pop 1
