    I’ll probably try snagging a spot if they do any baseball breaks soon. I saw they did one with Rhynes a while back. Other than that I’ll probably wait a while until I can blow way too much money trying to score a Cade Cunningham rookie

    Haven’t found a single pack of mosaic, prizm, optic, donruss or select in store yet and I hit every Target in North MS/Memphis at least once a week sometimes multiple.

    Only option I’ve found is the LCS selling Cello’s for $60+ or blasters for 150+

    Which really sucks for Select because I think this years cards look really good.

    I got the Select blaster off eBay for $115. They were Over $250 resell at release. An LCS selling them for that much is fucking slimy.

    Have a 2006 sealed World Cup sticker box and can’t decide to rip and grade what I get or just sit on it. Anyone got any insight? I paid about $300 for it and boxes go for about $450 now

    And as their legend grows even post playing careers. I just don’t think it can go down, so no sense to rip if you’re willing to wait.

    It sucks but I kinda understand. He’s not getting any hobby packs in stock. Seems like the breakers are snapping up all the product.

    I’m just buying singles at this point.

    well that's what happens when retail practically floods the market, no? that sweet spot between when hobby drops and the retail flood begins is when to sell these kinds of things?

    I'd say selling immediately is the the best time to sell. Now is likely the best time to buy as stuff won't likely go up?

    Was able to get four blasters of Select from a few Wal-Marts. Opened one so far and got a Herbert concourse, Michael Pittman green die-cut field level, Jefferson base, Chase Young base. Seeing prices drop to $110 or so on ebay makes me just want to open them.

    March 24th PSA was completed through collector vouchers of 8/31/20 and express through 1/31/21.

    Today, over a full month later being shut down from new submissions to catch up, vouchers date is 9/8/20 and express 2/16/21.

    Not accepting new submissions they've gained 8 days of vouchers and 16 days of express in almost 35 days...

    Plus no minor league season, no hype outside the drafted guys that were in the Draft set.

    Im trying to snag some now but I believe prices will go down just a little more here this week. Hoping to start seeing them for under $100.

    Yup. Dropped $300 on a Herbert field level tri color die cut thinking I could flip it for more if it wasn’t grade worthy.

    Seeing them go for 200-250 now and assuming it’ll continue to drop.

    For those that have sent off a lot of cards for grading or have experience judging, how do you gauge centering on a card like this without traditional borders?

    I stopped by my LCS today inquiring about football cards and he was like we don't have shit. But I have a shipment of Bowman baseball that'll be here in about an hour.

    I was like nahhh. Then he proceeded to talk about hockey cards which I have zero interest in.
