Does anyone here invest in current veterans or 2nd/3rd/4th yr guys?
For the first time last off season, I pretty much threw myself into the above (while still buying true prospects) with some nice results.
1. Scherzer: only went for 2008 SPX
2. Brandon Morrow: didnt pick up anything grand but...
Included in a massive purchase at the East Coast National, I found the above.
None on ebay, cant find much info on line either. Seems to be many other proofs except 1976.
Also, does anyone have a beckett price for the set? thanks
Picked up a massive lot of stuff and was wondering if anything in this pic is "rare" or pricey? The 1988 Disc does have his team and league listed on the back.
Also, was that red disc ever corrected and is it from 1984?
Some of the craziest finds from the show first 2 days:
1998 Retro Alomar Quantum Leap 13/50.....THIRTY THREE CENTS
Afficianado McGwire First Pitch Preview......FIFTY CENTS
1993 Finest Cal, 1998 CC Juan Gone 4 star GOLD Superstar Domain (I think, help me out JG collectors please), 2000 Black...
So I just got home from spending four days at the National. Heres some of the most instering stuff I got.
SEVEN 1993 Stadium Club Team Chipper autos w/ Treat coa's....$5 each
Cobb, Gray, Asbrubal (first auto) were $5 each or less. The Tolliver (remember his sister posted on FCB?) and James...
from 9-2 off exit 30 on I95 at the Ramada
Always nice pick ups to be had, especially from that dealer who sets up with a THOUSAND $1 cards ranging from 90's inserts to autos to Refractors to Heritage SP's and rcs.
Anyone here going?
Topps sent the above two players out to Hobby stores (1 set per).
The card numbers are 151 and 152 and are exclusive to the stores.
They are thick and have a kind of holographic shine to them on the diamond.
Theres also a film on them, like Finest from the 90s.
Sometimes, you just cant figure it out.
Tribute is $400 a box
'10 Bowman Sterling is $340 a box
So Im wondering, WHY are these prices what they are? Whats the REAL reason?
1. Theres N-O-T-H-I-N-G out there to buy for all the crackalackers
2. Were these...
This Friday to Sunday at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center, 400 tables, anyone else going?
Free admission Friday and free $20 grading voucher each day to first 500.
Theres free autso and Vick is also signing
Again, the show was just about sold out of tables although you wouldnt know that.
Why? Because one of the dealers sold BOTH OF HIS TABLES (all his inventory) to a customer.
How often does that happen?
The scan below shows my DJ pickups but I also scored (4) '94 CC A Rod rc's and a bunch of...
While at the Vegas Summit, I forgot to take a pic of Leafs upcoming FB draft product.
The card I was hoping to get was Starlings "retro" card, one picturing him in Bo Jackson's famous Nike B&W photo (and in 1990 Score).
If Brian can post it here (if it hasnt been previewed already) I think...
Early last year, a company sent a sales package to dealers promoting their new product.
Basically, you sent them any Topps card and they will blow it up to a mega jumbo size.
In order to get these cards into dealers stores, they offered a free sample of your choice.
I sent in the below (reg...
In Vegas attending the 2011 Industry Summit.
For those who dont know, its a conference where card store owners get together with distributors, companies, leagues etc. over several days.
Attendance is almost DOUBLE from last year (about 150) not counting leagues, dist, card companies.
Before I list it, just making sure that I still remmeber correctly how this card came into the Hobby.
Can anyone back up this info, or add to it?
From what I remember, it was ONLY issued for a few hours by Topps randomly to people on the street who attended the parade in October 2000 after the...
For some reason, theres hasnt been a card show of any size near me for years.
For a while, Ive been thinking about running a small one (30 tables. maybe a little less), to start (no auto guests).
Has anyone here actually run or promoted a show, especially a small one?
Any points or tips...
First time I was ever at this show.
