    I don’t want to pay a boatload, but if anyone finds any blasters of Mosaic football for ~$30-35 shipped let me know.

    I pre-ordered a cello box of Mosaic off eBay. Gonna hold on to it and see what the price is towards the end of the year. If it's anything like last year's Prizm or this year's Mosaic basketball the price should atleast double.

    I got a Donruss Football 12 count value box in today. 1) I really like the look of Donruss this year. 2) I hit a Optic Red Prizm /99 Clyde Edwards-Helraire. Looked up comps on ebay and the holos have sold for over $200.

    Does Yoshi Tsutsugo have a market? Buying baby stuff at target and gave up even checking card department there. I was walking past toy section to get to baby section and saw one pack of topps fire sitting on a side display. Decided to grab it because haven't opened much lately.

    Pulled a 1 of 1 Tsutsugo from there. Not an auto

    That's why i've pretty much given up on opening new packs and just started buying the singles i want instead. I went to my LCS yesterday and for the second time in a row all he had was some Hoops for $18 a pack. I refuse to spend that to pull a Carsen Edwards RC or some shit like that.

    i have started buying some cheap boxes from the late 80's/early 90's lately to satisfy my need to open stuff. Opened some 87 Fleer last night and pulled 5 Bonds, 4 Bo Jacksons and a few Larkin's and Maddux's. The nostalgia alone was worth the $47 I spent on the box.

    I feel ya. That’s why I’ve transitioned to trying to find retail for any breaking cravings I encounter. Price is just tough to justify(I say this after spending way too much on Bowman and Topps Chrome)

    Haven't opened a pack in months and just wanted to rip something so I bought 8 blasters of '20 Topps Chrome Baseball off ebay and just pulled a Bo Bichette Freshman Flash Orange Autograph Redemption #/25 :feelsgoodman:

    At this point I give no shits about graded cards. If I have an auto set that has 40 cards in it, 37 are raw and 3 graded PSA 10's, I'm cracking those 10's and I don't care if it costs me a couple thousand in value.

    If I have a 10 card auto set and 5 of them are graded 10's, at this point I'll leave them, but tomorrow's another day and they are at constant risk of my OCD and bitterness towards the grading community.

    You could just have the other 37 cards slabbed for the amount of money you'd be giving up cracking the 10s :idk:

    Looks like PSA is hiking their prices again on bulk order items. $15/card for 2017-newer and $12/card on all 1972-2016 items. :feelsbadman:

    It really sucks that they have all the clout in the hobby because they treat their customers like shit. I send hundreds, probably in the thousands of cards a year. I had a Tatis Topps Chrome Gold Auto Rookie #/50 come back as a PSA 10, but a shard of plastic must have snuck in during encapsulation so I sent it back to have it reviewed for damage because it looked like the surface was damaged. Well, it's been exactly 3.5 months and I haven't heard a word. I've inquired twice and was basically told to fuck off and that there is no turnaround time for Damage Review cards, regardless of previous service level or value.

    I imagine once Prizm is released the price of Mosaic will come down on the secondary market.

    Opinions, found a factory sealed 2020 topps complete set in store at target. Bought it because I have a 1987 set because it's year I was born and my son was born this year so thought it would be cool to keep for him.

    Question is should I keep it sealed or should I open it and see if the Robert is worth grading and swap it out with one of my non gradable ones before doing my PSA shipment?

    Leaning towards opening, since complete sets usually don't hold much value and figure my son will probably want to look at them eventually anyway

    Sealed. The hype on Roberts will likely fade as the mob moves onto the next sure thing.

    To the group of you that send cards in for grading, is Mosaic going to be worth sending stuff in? I'm torn on if this is worth it, or if I should try and sell it soon

    I don't know about football but from the 10-15 Mosaic basketball cards I've bought it seems like they'll grade pretty well.

    Anything specific?

    I'm sure I have some 2020 bowman stuff. I'm in process of moving so most my stuff is in a storage unit 3 hours away, I can check next week. Don't think I have any autos.

    Base autos (chrome) selling about $200 now. It's still sitting in my storage unit so it makes my decision a little easier but ill have access to it in three days.

    Its in my common auto box because it was selling $2-5 when I pulled it. Crazy his rise.

    If anyone is desperate for cards and their Targets are empty, check Big Lots. The stores by me are selling fat packs of prestige football, score football, and a repackaging pack of 2019 topps series 1 with 2019 heritage. Some of them have a different pack than heritage. $5 each

    Not a ton of rookies in series 1 but if you just want to open something. They also have Pokemon but I know nothing about that stuff
