    Great front page article - rare GU

    I love watching older, rarer GU sales and dreaming about owning that rare item, like a pre-war patch. Chris Levy posted an awesome article on the front page about rare GU - http://www.freedomcardboard.com/?p=1382. Of course one of the problems with rare GU, if you want to own it that is, is of course the fact, that it is rare.

    So that being said, post one of your own personal favorite rare GU cards, or, a link to an ebay auction of a rare GU card - I'll start, here are three I found last night, all from '08 Prime Cuts

    Satchel Paige Patch - [phil:ckmbj9v4]220768972471[/phil:ckmbj9v4]
    Jim Thorpe Jumbo - [phil:ckmbj9v4]370501664835[/phil:ckmbj9v4]
    Gehrig/Robinson/Thorpe/Jackson Quad - [phil:ckmbj9v4]220770033588[/phil:ckmbj9v4]

    Both gorgeous cards! The triple patch is drool worthy!

    Also, as it relates to Jackson Bats - it is interesting how much cheaper they've become - [phil:3rofifmp]180652860191[/phil:3rofifmp]

    I really like the jumbo Satchel Paige...it just doesn't seem possible for too many of those to exist.

    That being said - [phil:17v7bdfc]200539772182[/phil:17v7bdfc] - go buy yourself another

    It's funny, in the last couple of days I've been starting to look into getting one of those SP Joe Jackson bats.
    Some great cards in this thread.
    Done.
    The only card I want is a 2003-04 Bowman Chrome Patrice Bergeron Gold Refractor auto RC /5.

    It's probably overpriced but this is a cool card [phil:1ily02wj]290465650435[/phil:1ily02wj]

    Gorgeous, love the 3 color Clemente patch.

    There is a really nice 3 color Clemente '04 Ultimate Patch up now - [phil:379uavnl]220769464321[/phil:379uavnl] - will go for big bucks I'm sure.

    Not a lot of people know that this 2001 Topps Tribute Jackie Robinson is actually a hat, and as such I believe it is the rarest card in the set (less than 30 out there). They rarely come up for sale and are striking IMO.

    I used to own this card I pulled from my box I bought of Andrew (allincards) back in 2008
    Sold for around 250. I wish I had it still since it was numbered to 2
