    Congrats. I was planning on bidding on the ARod that was scheduled to end tomorrow but the seller ended it and listed it at $1000. Not cool at all.

    Did I mention THAT WASN'T COOL AT ALL!?!?!?!?

    Agreed, awful form by the seller. There are quite a few mirror reds ending tomorrow, I've got my eye on one of them. But the ones listed as BIN make my heart hurt for those player collectors, lofty lofty price tags.

    Let the MLB know you’d like to see UD back. The license comes up in a couple years and they listen on social media.

    Looking forward to seeing the Andruw's get listed. Did you happen to ask if he had any of the certified Platinum sets?
    This is the one I have.

    Downsizing my AJ collection. If you are looking for a specific card (non-multi player), PM me, I may have it.

    I think gixen just screwed me. Put in a big bid on the bagwell only to have it not register. Can't get into gixen site either.

    That's a real bummer, not to put salt in the wound but that went for a lot less than I would have guessed too.

    Gixen was down when these went off.. When I looked I saw that it had an HTTP issue as the ending info..

    The Randy Johnson I was bidding on went well over the $250 I put on it..

    I lost some very minor auctions due to Gixen's failure too. Wonder if Mirror users were unaffected? I bought the membership once, but have mostly been using the free service. It seems every so often, something happens though and it doesn't work. It is somewhat regular, although infrequent, and almost feels like a "penalty" for not buying the service, but it is probably just technical difficulties with one of the server, like he says.

    The only totally certifieds he mentioned to me he had, were these:



    Since we have only ever seen the totally certified gold #s 1-10, perhaps all they made was 1-10 of these, but then again, you never know!

    I do subscribe to the mirror and apparently both failed. I've had times that the regular server failed and the mirror won the auction for me, but never a time when both failed.

    I'm really pissed it just so happened to fail on a card I was so excited about and likely will never see again. I had placed the snipe as soon as the auction was listed. I was out at a whiskey festival and knew I wouldn't be looking at my phone. I won an auction about 3 hours earlier with a snipe. Just really bummed out about this.

    Just venting now

    Great story! I must admit, I was planning on going big on the red that ended yesterday, until I saw this story. The fact that there’s more, and more colors, and this story feels like a “promotion”... I totally lost interest. I had $150 saved in PayPal ready to make a fair stab at it, but once I saw the story, the ending of auctions, selling offline, etc, It’s exactly what I don’t like about the hobby. Every collector is different, so I am not being negative on any buyer or seller, just not my cup of tea. This story saved me some money, that’s for sure! FWIW the Gwynn ended at $80.

    Thanks for reading! I can definitely see your point - it is always best to know/think something is a 1/1, however to me, I just think of these as potentially a significantly rarer type of the 96 mirror golds, 98 crusade reds, etc. and a cool story to boot. While it may take the wind out of some sails initially, down the road, I can easily see these being much bigger than they already are ... especially when all are cataloged and when more information is out about them.

    Unknown is a bit heavy handed and even fake new-ish. Might want to edit the web article and title as full sets have been known since about 1999 or 2000 when D&A sold multiple sets of Red and Blue.
