I was going to sit on the sapphire box and realized there were way to many on the market and some sellers will take a hit after ebay gets there cut. I asked my wife what to do and she said to flip a coin. She flipped it, she called it, and away I went.

I think I did okay and will upload pictures later. I'm curious about a few things.

I believe I understand the image variations and don't believe I hit any.

Most of these cards appear more blue than green. A couple I have appear much more green than blue and it's quite noticeable, does it matter any?

I just received my box today in the mail. I'm curious how ebay has 2 graded cards from GMG listed by the seller mnsportscard22.

Lastly, if you pulled an Ohanti SP number to 50 and it was clean, would you get it graded or not with the current climate?

I'm not sure which prospects are good so maybe some people can let me know their opinions on how I did and what they would do. It appears some are base cards that are listed for $3 shipped so those seem obvious to try and dump. I'd probably just do one lot of the cheap ones so I'm not waiting around with auctions relisting a dozen times if nobody wants a particular card.

When the pics are added then I will update the title for anyone who cares.

    Thanks for sharing. That Ohtani is a big time hit. If clean, I would grade and then list once his new contract is announced. George Kirby is a star in the making, but pitchers always have limited upside. Likely worth selling if the Mariners go on a playoff run this post-season.

    Depending on how you bought the box, some people could have had theirs in hand a couple weeks before you. Topps offers preorders on a lot of products and they’ll arrive at your door the same day they post the product for sale on their site - if you bought during the product release (not ore-order) and didn’t pay up for quick shipping, some pre-orders probably had plenty of time for quick grading companies to turn them around before you even opened.
