May 2023 pickups

I’ll start things off:


1997 Upper Deck Legends Otto Graham autographed. I have 3 of his on-card official autos, and I believe there are only one or two more to track down.

    This is a terrible choice of photo for one of the all time great QBs...looks like he just threw a pick and is running after the DB. You mean they couldn't find a better action picture of him?...SMH. Congrats on the Otto auto...what a great player he was. 10 years in the pros and 10 Championship appearances (with 7 wins!)

    I think he's blocking for his teammate on the right side of the card.

    I stand corrected...good catch!

    Not sure this counts, but I'm always happy to find BBCE flashes...

    Now just have to figure out how to see through top of wrappers. Bottoms are easy. lol

    Counts as long as you bought it, under almost any definition, this month. I'm a firm believer in "collect what you like".

    ETA: If you're worried about showing it on a thread like this because it's not "special" (cool, unique, valuable) enough, a) that's not a criterion, and b) if it was, this would be far above the threshold.

    Oh, and if you open them, or even open the brick and can see the individual packs with cards showing, we'd like to see that, too.

    We like pictures. :)

    I did open the brick already to see what showed. Probably far as I go right now. Here they are along with the bonus tray included in deal:

    Awesome Packs... :)
    Oh Yeah on the 'Wrap"...Pretty Cool... B)

    Loving that Puckett 7-11 rookie. Never seen that one before. Thanks for sharing!

  • brad31brad31 Posts: 2,479 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I was also not aware of the 7-11 Puckett - is it standard sized? Is the back blank or printed? Thanks for sharing.

    I’ve been looking for a centered PSA 7 in this card for a pretty long time. Finally landed this one, and I’m satisfied.

    that should be an eight.

  • ReggieClevelandReggieCleveland Posts: 3,853 ✭✭✭✭✭

    You folks have sick taste in cards. Those 7s are beauties. I'm selling off about 90% of my collection but I'm still collecting UFC as my methadone. Two RCs of fighters I'm a fan of.

    It's not commonly seen, I have a couple raw ones, wasn't confident either would grade mint.

    Card is standard sized, here's a picture of the back. Sorry about the glare.

    Thanks for sharing the back and the knowledge. That card is really nice.

    Today I received the Topps Project 100 #87 Mike Trout Deluxe package which includes a base card plus a parallel out of #100. I do not intend on opening it so maybe the other 99 people will and I will know what number my parallel is :smile:

    Very underrated player. Stunning card!

    Did you know that pistol isn't a "real" gun, but a pellet gun?
    That's what I read somewhere.

    Well, it’s definitely not a Walther PPK…

    REALLY wanted the 10, but it was 4 times as much and didn't look any better to me.

    Holy hell, that card is AWESOME! I just PM’d you, but that was before I saw this. Which Puckett registry are you working on? The master?
