I’ll do my best to see if I can clarify a few things and start by saying I spent about two decades in sheetfed commercial offset printing.
From what I gather, the issue comes from cards that were produced before UV curing became the norm for chrome cards; the early 2000’s was the shift.
I disagree. I don’t see this being anything like the Marlins with Stanton. Tatis will not be demanding a trade in a few seasons and the Padres are also not going anywhere. They are positioned to contend for a long time. This team is deep, young and stacked with talent waiting in the wings.
I was lucky to get my /5, all in under $300 surprisingly. I’m really pleased with the look of the card too, red with the dark blue Mariners uniform. Sold off an Ichiro patch auto but it was a Marlins uniform and I just couldn’t get over that.
Not a Dodgers fan per say but I don't dislike them either. This move really has me scratching my head. IMO, they were already deep enough with starters and I don't see this signing really addressing much of a current need. From what I have read and my understanding, this places them well...
I can't get over how nice this looks. I bought a Cole autograph for a friend but didn't remove it from the sealed case and was unable to really appreciate the look of these cards. Your photo makes me want to go back and find some cards from this release to add to my personal collection...
I am trying to hunt down a Lou Gehrig cut autograph from any Topps products to purchase.
If you have one or know of anybody that has one that they are willing to move, please contact me or post here.
Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
................. and this one.
It's my very first submission with PSA and it was just this one card for now. I was hoping for a 10 but am satisfied with the result overall, it's now protected and any potential buyer knows what they are getting over a raw.
Great additions to the PC and I love that Matsui Transcendent. The images of setting up at the plate and the follow through are quintessential Godzilla. I was looking to grab that one but after yours sold I missed the next on auction and the other BIN's were more than I wanted to spend.
