    Interesting that PSA labeled some as 1980s. I'm assuming they know production all occurred between specific years all within the 1980s?

    Those are SGC. They graded them because I showed them in person the album the stickers came from. We just weren't sure of the exact year. However, based on the player selection and other factors, they dated them in the 1980s, although I believe that the late 1970s is also quite possible.

    In general I’d need to think about it, but this one is an easy answer:

    My kids gave me a BVG 2.5 for Christmas 2013 that I eventually cracked out, had signed, and sent to PSA. Final result above.

    Thanks Abe, I feel the same way about your Staubach collection, especially the 79’s. This card has a great story too, one I’m too lazy to repeat at the moment. But definitely would never get rid of this one:

    Yaz Master Set
    #1 Gino Cappelletti master set
    #1 John Hannah master set

    Also collecting Andre Tippett, Patriots Greats' RCs, 1964 Venezuelan Topps, 1974 Topps Red Sox

    That Munson in particular is tremendous!

    Probably the last card I would part with in my collection. Not because of anything specific or sentimental- just don’t think I would want to pay $15-30k to find one that looks like this one. Plus I already sold a PSA 8 back in 1999-2000 at the National in Anaheim for a then record price, but this was pre .5 point grades at PSA and it is about a 99% chance the 8 would have bumped - it was that nice.

    I can see why you would hold onto this one. My favorite MM.

    Nearly every time I've sold ANYTHING (cards or otherwise) I've regretted it later. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, maybe not even a year or two, but it inevitably happens. I'm just too sentimental like that I suppose. So if I buy anything collectible (cards, games, books, etc) I expect it to be for keeps.

    One thing is for sure though, if someone came to my apartment and did like on TV and open a briefcase in front of me with a million dollars in 100 fresh $10,000 packs of $100 bills, and said I could have this in exchange for my kitty, you know what I'd do without a moment's hesitation?

    I'd gently close the case shut and politely say thanks...but no thanks. The special loving bond between a man and his kitty cat is something you just can't put a price tag on!!

    Does not need to be expensive cards just as long as they are dear to you and you would never sell them. I know if offered insane amounts of money some would sell that is normal.

  • BLUEJAYWAYBLUEJAYWAY Posts: 8,014 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Can honestly say I would sell any of them at the right price. But mainly to help fund that one purchase, that once obtained, I'd never sell. There are some non-card possessions I would never sell for sentimental reasons.

    I dont have any photos, but for me it would be a couple of my favorite Brady rookies.

    While I know everything has a price, my Contenders Rookie Ticket and Bowman Chrome Refractor rookie would be the last 2 I would sell.

    George Brett, Roger Clemens and Tommy Brady.
