    I think I'm going to add another set to collect. I like the Shawn Kemp In Flight auto I got yesterday, may as well go for the set. Of course this means I have to buy another non-graded Kemp for the set. I noticed there isn't a complete checklist on-line, Cardboard Connections has a partial list, they don't even list the Kemp. I imagine this is likely due to some players not returning cards or being really late with shipping them back. Looks like the set was suppose to have 20 players in it, but only 2/3 sent their shit back. Also, it's midnight here on the west coast and there's live breaks happening on youtube over on the east coast. They're about to break some Diamond Icons, I feel like I want to get in on it but I don't know how. I've already asked some dumb questions in the chat and don't want to get banned by pestering more.

    Speaking of Ginters I got a bunch of mini-framed auto's in the mail today, what size top loaders do these take? 60's are way too tight, and much like my dick in dblplay1212 mom the 100's are like throwing a hot dog down the hallway. Do they make something in between that I'm not aware of?

    Disregard, I found a company called BCW that makes 79pt cases. These should be perfect.

    I just got done researching the top loaders Ultra Pro makes. Whoever labels their shit needs to be fired.

    "Super Thick 75pt Toploaders"
    "Thick 100pt Toploaders"
    "Super Thick 130pt Toploaders"

    So their labels show 75pt being "super thick", 130pt being "super thick", but those 100pt cases are just regular ol' thick.

    I think with the top loaders though that the thickness of the actual loader is different. The 1s always seemed slimmer if that makes sense.

    I'm a college dropout, you lost me. All of my Ultra Pros are bowed out of the package, none of them seem like they're made with much quality if that was the point.

    I notice when I buy them online from Amazon they often come a bit bowed. But the ones I bought at the shop were quite straight. May be a coincidence though

    All I meant that was if you were to hold them in your hand the ultra thick ones do seem like they have more plastic or are thicker than the thick

    I just found a sealed case of top loaders upstairs from the 90's. I need to spend more time upstairs, three bedrooms and 40 years of hoarding.

    Apparently PWCC Marketplace is being investigated by the FBI for selling altered cards and for the known shill bidding that they've been doing for years. It got to the point where I just ignored any listing they had because they always magically sell for 10-20% higher than the market.

    This is why you should always use justsnipe.com if you are planning on bidding on auctions on ebay. It's $5 a month and worth every single penny.

    Why not use Gixen? It's $6.00 a year or something like that, and there's a free option too but I don't like waiting 20 seconds to log in.

    I think the investigation is primarily focused around the trimming, I haven't read any articles that mention them being investigated for the shilling. Would be great to see some PWCC clowns get prison time.

    Thoughts on this...

    Gentleman who passed away was supposedly close with the Dodgers ball club. This is selling at auction tonight. No paperwork to go with it. Most of the signatures seem to match the authenticated signatures of the players that you see online. Usually when too good to be true, it is. But always like to pass this stuff along to this thread. 25 autographs in total, but here are some of the big names. He has a bunch of other memorabilia, but was just interested in this.

    Just sold a Shane Bieber 2019 Stadium Club base card for $12 in auction. Apparently Topps made a mistake and wrote "Justin" on the back of the card so now everyone is trying to buy them. Makes no sense to me as it'll be worth .50 soon img010.jpg

    For whatever reason late last night after taking my ambien I decided I need to collect a 2018 football auto set that is limited to 10 autos per player (25 cards in the set). I then proceeded to buy every damn one I could find on the internet. I now have 30% of the set, blew $600+, and likely have zero chance of completing the set due to how limited it is. I'm struggling to finish sets that have 99 copies of each auto. I turn full blown retarded after taking ambien, I really need to stay off the computer after I take it. Nonetheless, if any of you have 2018 Flawless Signatures /10 for football I'm gonna need you to hand them over.

    Completed the 2018-19 National Treasures 'Treasures Of The Hall' autograph set today. Once the Barkley redemption arrives I'll post a photo. If he doesn't come through on signing the redemption cards I'll hunt his fat ass down and make him sign it like I did 20 years ago in a hotel elevator in Seattle.

    I’ve seen him tons of time at Italia North at Kierland Commons in PHX. Several times on Christmas Eve there at the bar. Hopefully that helps you track him down.

    Redemption cards are kind of like a card you get without the athlete on it and then you send it in and they send you the signed card. Topps has redemptions of Vlad Jr and Tatis Jr this year I believe for baseball. I’m guessing since Chuck isn’t an active player they did it and then have him sign later when the redemption card gets sent in if that makes sense.

    To add on to Simons response, was reading on reddit this week that a lot of Cody Bellinger redemptions had finally been sent out because Topps had finally resolved an issue surrounding his compensation for signing cards so guess it really could be anything.

    For overhyping the fact that I could use the Griffey jr rookie card to retire on at the age of 15
