    I think the $ and luck pieces factor in hugely into having some killer cards, however, the luck portion can manifest itself in many ways. IE "The harder I work, the luckier I get" I'm not talking harder work to get money; I'm talking harder work to find gems. If there is one thing I've learned about being a supercollector of a coveted player (by some, not all, lol!) it is that while it does take moola to get there, landing special cards can also be done by hard work of digging for them, patience and creativity.

    This thread is no doubt an eye candy piece that is likely asking for us to show off pieces that have mass appeal, so while my 1992 Ultra boardroom prototypes unquestionably blow the doors off of a Trout auto or Ruth relic, I have a sneaking suspicion the majority of the collecting community may not share my sentiments

    For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23 - Questions about this? PM ME!

    While I may have many cards more scarce or more valuable, almost nothing in my collection tops the following card.

    Frank's first "high-end", serial numbered insert card from the 2nd series of the first high-end insert set ever produced. Jersey numbered...I collect for this kind of reason.

    That Big Hurt Elite is SICKNASTY!

    And @mouschi, the horizontal boardroom prototype is nice.

    One of my favorite cards...

    These are the best of my best. Many are gone but it sure was fun to hit them at one time.

    Just picked up a beautiful Gwynn gamer bat. Ill post some pics soon

    For what it's worth, @jcmint does his "pick up threads" and I am serious, every card is pretty drool worthy, in pretty much every sport. Example:

    I'll nominate the Jeter Nameplate. Think it's a cool card that you rarely see

    This has nothing to do with putting in work or effort. My response was a direct answer to the original thread's question of who has the best modern card. Any card that is good enough to win best modern card will either be obtained by luck or will have been paid for with a sizable sum of money. I suppose there is a small fraction of a chance that someone wheeled and sealed for a card of that magnitude (also luck in my opinion if that is the case), but then we'd all chant that the new owner is a d-bag who ripped off the previous owner. That is just the reality of the lottery pack mentality/market we now find ourselves collecting within. It's no longer who will pull the first Mickey Mantle of the neighborhood (and eventually we'll all have one or more if we keep buying packs), it is now who will be lucky enough to pull the Babe Ruth cut auto, button, cleat, jersey patch, hat, hair, tooth mega relic 1/1 that we can immediately turn around and sell for $10K.

    I didn't say there weren't good cards that could be found with work and some wheeling and dealing, but to 'WIN" this thread, you pretty much need luck or big money.

    I can't see the photo. What card is it? Frank was "The man" when I was collecting 90s inserts heavily.

    It's a 1992 Donruss Elite, serial number 00035/10000. This was my ultimate dream card as a kid, I mean, this very copy, with this very serial number. It wasn't pulled from a pack until 2011, but I was lucky enough to get it from the man who did it.

    I don't know why your so upset by the fact you don't have the best card of the decade or whatever. He wanted to see good cards and that's it. So every time you see an under priced cards on eBay you message the seller and say hey sorry let me add another $100 in you didn't price it right?! I highly doubt that. It's 2017 everyone has literally every means of research at their fingertips. If I ask a guy for a price and he gives me one after he uses beckett, ebay, google, has friends, and has a business doing this presumably then I'm going to pay the man.
    So you collect and buy like yourself which is I'm guessing wait until someone lists the high end card you want at top dollar and just pay for it or like most on this site search Comc and EBay daily to find the best deals.
