    Overall condition is terrific. It's hard to see in the pic I posted but the protective peel is started to come up about a millimeter the whole way around.

    Thx. Interesting. Mine look beat up. Lots of surface scratches and peeling. Mouschi's source is diff than eBay guy so maybe that's the diff but I suspect both sellers know each other and the source of the cards is the same.

    Solid

    Funny that his comment to me was “these were cards that I picked up off of the floor on the way out of the door.”

    Anyone here pick up any of the 1995 Pinnacle Artist's Proof Wrong Foils that were up on eBay?
    Seller had a couple dozen with a bunch of the big names.
    I landed the Piazza, glad to finally cross this one off the list.

    I was just going to ask that. I put in mid tier bids for all when posted but got busy with life and forgot about them completely. Griffey went for $100, like 1/4 of what the last one went for. Came away with a handful but definitely should have gotten more aggressive. Ripken was cheap too at $120. Great deals to be had here.

    It sounds like we may be seeing more of these. I'd be interested in know what kind of condition issues are out there. Is the peel off the card and the card is scratched or is the peel just roughed up a bit?

    Haven't posted any pickups the last few months but I've slowly been picking up a few higher/mid ends that I wanted to share:


    Haven't seen many 2000 Topps Stars /99 parallel's out there. The Platinum press proof was especially exciting as I've seen people on this thread mention how hard they are to come by. This is the first I've seen available since I got back into collecting.


    Haven't seen much of these either! The lighting in my place stunk tonight so you'll have to forgive the thumb lol


    Big shout out to Mouschi for the hookup on this one! Thanks again for the most unique card in my collection so far!


    I overpaid like crazy for the Established but I had seen it come and go thanks to snipes 4 times...not again

    I'm still on the hunt for the Fortune 15 refractor, The Early Road to the Hall Refractor, and of course the Team Pinnacle Gold with Larkin. Please let me know if you come across any of these! I check this thread daily and really enjoy everything I'm learning about all these unreleased cards!

    They are different sources - Pinnacle was in the same area they were, so it is a hot bed of sorts for these kinds of cards to come out.

    Ahh, you spoke to him - that answers my question I had out to you then.

    He said the same thing to me - that kind of enhances the story imo, about the cards almost having been thrown away.

    The seller I dealt with was aware of the other guys stuff...or it seemed like he had seen the blues and golds, and some statement he made implied (to me) that both guys split something from Pinnacle

    It's very possible I misunderstood

    Am curious how much of this stuff is still around...pls don't let it be a ton otherwise I might regret what I've paid!!!!

    My understanding based upon talking to them is this: They did not get the stuff from the same seller; that the guy who originally put them on ebay only put them up online after having heard the guy I got mine from picked up a collection. It is also my understanding that for whatever they had in mirrors, there *may* be a single extra here or there, but the vast majority of the mirrors were the only ones they had each. Again though, that is what I took away from my conversations with them.

    Like Tanner, I was fortunate enough to deal directly with the aforementioned dealer AKA "Pinnacle Man" and snag some incredibly rare Select and Pinnacle Certified bankruptcy Griffeys. Never knew some of these existed and never imagined that I would own any of these!
