That Frank is my white whale.
So if anyone has one laying around, feel free to send it to me.
nothing really significant. A few /25 relics.
I feel like a Vlad Jr is a pretty significant hit.
He has a terrible signature, just like Sr.
For sure. I collect mostly Topps dynasty and several guys just have shit autographs. Like Trout and Vladdy. On the other hand some are beautiful, I’m a fan of Chipper Jones auto myself.
Mariano Rivera has a great signature too
But that Acuna Jr
Griffey auto is so choice
His signature is as pretty as his swing was
Randomly found prizm shooty hoop blasters in the wild today.
Adding some GOAT finally. Now if I could just stop getting sniped on an auto or 2, I'd be set.
Todays eBay drama. Guy "totaled his car" 2 days ago so he can't pay for the auction that he won 4 days ago for a total of .... $1.05
audibly laughed in the office, at "$1.05".
you clearly didnt factor in the shipping for a total of $1.98 that will setback zash
Should submit this to the card porn IG page. They post these kind of things all the time and they’re all equally stupid excuses.
eBay needs a way to start striking buyers down when they pull this shit
Their lack of tools for sellers to report and respond to these folks is ridiculous. Literally can't even leave a bad review
of course their entire model is also ridiculous that you can just bid on stuff with no method of paying for it required. If they really cared, they'd follow the Stockx model or something else where you have to have payment ready and it's instant after winning a bid.
I want to pick up a few Herbert rookie cards. Is ebay the best way to get graded singles or do you guys recommend another site?
Mac downtown sold for 5900 and the guy said he couldn’t pay because it was for his friend who backed out
You can try myslabs.com
And by the time the seller relists the price will come down $500 I'm sure.
Goodness. Gunna hafta Holla at that.
Will update when he posts price.
Made a very me friendly trade for this guy today
Yearly bonus came in on Wednesday so I was planning on going a little overboard during Nationals.
Transmission blew in my Tahoe this morning.
We haven't discussed Becketts totally not new slabs that their booth at the National is centered around.
It's gonna be neat when the Backyard Breakers pull a 1/1 FDR cut signature and have no idea who that is.
Got my 3 prizm blasters of football, may be last 3 I buy. $90+ at face for 3 blasters, no numbered cards, no QB rookies other than a Lance insert. Box is priced at over a $1 per card in the box. Value just isn't there unless you get lucky. Basketball ones have not shipped yet may just flip those (although I still need a Cade prizm so may open)
Sell them and just buy a Cade
Lol yea that's probably a good idea. I bought 6 prizm blasters of basketball for $180 something from target. Was thinking of reselling some anyway. Looks like I can flip all 6 for around $270. Could get close to a Cade auto or shorter print Prizm with that which would surely be more valuable than anything I pulled
I was at meijer Thursday as the stocker was there. I bought nothing. Had tons of prizm football and basketball. Just couldn’t do it. The price point is ridiculous imo and I don’t really collect football or basketball, just buy singles.
With basically no SP or autos in blasters, it looks like realistic best case is you pull the disco orange blaster exclusive Mac Jones which you can buy as low as $56. And there are only 2 of those RC in every blaster with a rookie checklist over 100 players.
Bought the card I wanted. On card auto /75 and I really like the white auto with the blue.
Find it weird they can grade a card a 10 when after it was made he signed it. I guess if I have a card with a flaw I should just get it signed and make sure the signature covers the imperfection.
That's nice looking card though. Looks better than the auto stickers they do
Herbert must have an autograph booth at his local wal mart because i saw hundreds and hundreds of cards he signed individually at the show
Didn’t he have a few singings last year and charged like $50-$100 each? I remember some guy on Facebook was selling some and he said he had like 200 cards signed alone.
Yeah he's got a ton of in-person on-card autos for whatever reason
Yeah but does he have a silver Prizm Mac Jones? Or how about a Ben Baller Luis Robert.
I see there a few optic blasters for sale right now on Facebook and people are pre selling them on eBay. Drop this week probably?
Just saw someone on Twitter say they've been found at Barnes & Noble.
This going to lead towards high end cards never leaving Fanatics sphere.
No Optic drop today on Target has me sad
next week probably. some stuff from last week hasn't even shipped yet
Exactly, if you want the big hits you are going to have to break with their guys. So they will jack up their prices even more for their breaks this leading to even higher prices for everyone.
I’ll admit I got back in 3 years ago because of this thread and about 6-8 months later the boom took off like crazy. Now I’m debating on getting out again besides just a select few players I collect. Prices for retail are just stupid. I always liked to keep all parallels or inserts and just put them in a binder along with rookies that I got out of retail or breaks but it’s too expensive now.
When this bubble bursts it’s gonna be epic I believe. Prices can’t keep going up and expect people to keep buying in. There are a few smaller breakers that I usually break with and they are already having trouble filling breaks, almost every time they have to do cheap fillers to get it done.
Agreed. I've pulled back a lot of my purchasing due to the market just being out of whack. I don't think I'll ever stop doing it as a hobby, but my opening/buying has taken a huge step back.
I mentioned this a while back, Fanatics already authenticating and slabbing cards now will probably lead to some shenanigans, like a card that would normally be pack pulled miraculously ending up in a Fanatics slabbed on their site shortly after release.
they're totally going to fuck this up in the most predictable fashion ever
2022 Topps complete sets are up on Target. Look like you can get the Tork, Witt, and Julio rookies in them, I'm assuming as a part of the 5 card rookie image variations.
