    First Chavez Pick Up In Over 2 Years. A Card I Had Previously Never Seen

    Although I haven't purchased anything in over two years I still scour ebay regularly for Topps Tek Gold Patterns I need. I also keep an eye out for cards I never owned which surprisingly there haven't been too many minus 1/1s. I never saw this card in the 13 years I actively collected or the 5 years since. I honestly didn't think this card existed and was surprised when it sold for a whopping $2.58. I would have paid well over $100 for this item in heyday. Card is in great shape, all damage is on the case.

    Nice! One of the most underrated players of the last 20 years IMO.

    Great looking grab at a great price too. I might have to hunt one down in that price range and congratulations on the PC addition.

    Certainly brings up questions of what could have been without the injury issues.

    Congrats, always nice finding a surprise and even sweeter when you pay less than you expected too.

    I had to grab one as well, though mine is a blue stamp. Your gold stamp apparently was a much harder pull.

    Congrats. I haven't been able to find the Tony Womack Gold version to go with blue and silver.

    I don't think most people have any idea just how tough a card that is. Congrats on the pick-up. I know you've largely moved on, but still really nice to see you posting a Chavez pickup.
