    This isn't new. It's one of the reason why junk wax is junk wax. Anyone with a couple hundred dollars was putting away cases of 87-91 stuff in their closets back in the day. It's maybe reached new...

    Very nice. I've started tending towards just picking up nice Heritage cards. They seem to be evergreen in popularity and at least some of the inserts/subsets are growing in appreciation. Picked up...

    I just want to say it's amazing that piece of scrap survived 23 years and ended up in Gracecollector's collection.

    Topps had their own stream going on their site, but the parts I saw were talking heads going on and on about the set. Individual breakers were linked off that page so you had 25 individual streams. ...

    Wow that's great. I covet the Mathewson jersey, too. UD made a couple of them in various brands, but I think the design from this set is the best. Can't remember the last time I saw one, though. ...

    My dad sold his car to a guy and it was later used in some sort of crime. The buyer never updated the title so my dad got a visit from the cops, but they accepted his explanation.

    FWIW, I think...

    The Many Spellings of Marc Maguire.

    I sold a Bowman Chrome Red Ref of Perdro Martinez once. I honored the sale, but it kind of stung. Pretty sure I missed out on some dollars.

    The thing I hate about new Topps day is salivating over all the cards I'd love to collect but just knowing that whatever I buy I'm going to pull when I finally get my boxes. And I don't have the...

    No, the tax doesn't come out of your proceeds, but the fee for it does. For the $135.64 my buyer paid, Paypal charged a $4.23 fee. That is 30 cents plus 2.9% of $135.64. Without the tax, Paypal...

    I would assume this will carry into S2, so there could be a Puckett later on.

    I had been looking for similar cards from 2019 like this one. But I don't know where they come from, I think certain factory sets. This is much better, though, and easier to chase.

    Yes, and the seller is paying Paypal fees on the tax. Here's a card I sold recently, with all the details from Paypal:

    Sales Tax $11.42 USD
    Shipping Amount $4.00 USD...

    Wow you really are a Met.

    FWIW I am 99% sure the Steve Sparks thing is true. And 90% on the Zumaya thing. I kind of doubt the false teeth thing. Players are dumb enough to carry fragile things...

    There's one on Amazon, the 2000 edition that is listed at 9x11, 480 pages. As baseball card books go, I'm counting that as "giant" even if it's not as big as the Major League Standard Catalog. I...

    I think he may have been selected for availability rather than his being the manager of the future. And he has that OG reputation that I would imagine is intended to signal that there will be no...

    I had no idea there was a SC for minor league cards. Another giant book to seek out for the shelf.

    Wow! Prices

    Didn't we used to have a thread for stunningly high (or low) prices? I have one to add. I got back into collecting Heritage a couple years ago and have been gravitating towards the true rarities...

    Not to derail the thread, but that Bill Davis thing is awesome. I knew about Piniella having a range of rookie star subset cards, actually across a wider range of years, but Davis takes it to a new...

    Maybe not changing the standard so there are no 2.5x3.5 cards anymore, but I just think it would be a cool option. Suppose they put out 2020 Topps, and then they came out with a "Topps Max" that was...

    And even then, Cox didn't go in as a player. So you could be more technically correct to say Jeter is the only one. Even more technically correct if you say it's zero because his Topps, Bowman, and...
