    Ever think that those involved in 3 AM snipe wars and adding a card they want to the collection is their definition of collecting fun??? It seems like they are paying market value, and you are the one who is not. You follow this post by saying you feel there could be less than 10 copies of each out there, but you want them for pennies???

    The constant internet creeper references to "FCB members" and "that RR guy" are a bit much. Please stop.

    Another passive-agressive comment, "Hey, RR guy, I have a bunch of cards that you need, haha."

    Creepy.

    They still do a monthly Beckett for about $ 10. I guit buying it for the most part as very little changed other than the addition of a plethora of new releases and subsets

    Thanks for the kind words! Though I think I have a much, much easier time finding McGwires than you do Belles since people are more likely to try and cash in on him. And man, 89.7%, coooooome oooooooon almost there!!

    So just got back from a few hours in afternoon at Tri-Star show in Houston and then to See Deadpool. None of the dealers had any 1998 TEKs nor was there any Eddie from Alvin to be found.

    What value or reliability is PSA if they slap the Diffraction or Diffractor on the label where seller then list card as Diffractors or Diffractions which are clearly NOT diffractors or ebay? Seems like a big Scam to me
