    Fantastic pickups! Beyond the scarcity of the cards you do an awesome job of identifying sets that are interesting, different and look great!

    Thanks a ton Ravi and great to see you! Very nice redemption pickup with that Stadium Club Mariano yourself. I hope all has been well for you

    Thank you very much! Glove pieces are really nice if you don't already have one. You can find some pretty cheaply priced ones, and you can find some great old timers/HOF that don't have a lot of GU out there.

    Thanks! I agree, and haven't been picking up too much newer stuff unless it is Felix or Zunino needs. I'm glad that the 2005 and prior sets have a lot better appeal when it comes to the wording on the cards and the look of the materials used.

I have the Dawson and couldn't believe how much of the bat they used to produce these cards. I'd probably have gone after a lot of the same HOF cards you do, including the Sandberg, but have gotten a lot more into prospecting instead.
    Very nice! Between myself, you and [MENTION=2413]MojoDan[/MENTION] we take care of 3 of the 10 then I'm really happy about the Sandberg and feel like I got a great close to steal price. Do you have a scan of the Dawson? I bet that is a great card too. How has prospecting been treating you? I don't prospect much, but I'll bust Bowman product to sell quickly (hopefully more than the slot or box break) to fund my PC that way while taking care of the wax breaking itch.

    Thanks a ton Dave! Yeah, Felix pickups haven't been to frequent. I'm just not much a fan of all the newer stuff. He doesn't seem to have any more autographs out there after this year/last year as all of the new stuff doesn't have him on the checklist away from base/parallels. I'm fine with that though. The lesser the autos the better the value hopefully Fortunately and unfortunately he is not in Topps Tek this year. I'm happy Walker is in it but I wish Zunino was as well.

    Thanks so much! Very much appreciated on the interesting/different sets, that means a ton coming from a great collector as yourself I like your recent HOF jersey pickups from the RC years. There are a few of the mediocre guys I wouldn't mind going after but knowing Berra and Musial have cards in that set would make it fun to chase as well.

    Didn't know we have three of them. I bought mine from amazing mets collector [his id is something like that] who is on here. This had to be about 5 years ago. He doesn't remember who the player on the card is, haha.

    I just scanned my Dawson. Happy to get it for about the same price as your sandberg - i agree the sandberg went cheaper than i expected.

    Prospecting is crazy. Especially now during BDP season, i really have to get my time management straight. KNow your stuff and it's like gambling with the odds in your favor. The amount of work that goes into it really makes it another job but it's what I love to do.

    Nice and keep up the great work prospecting wise, especially if you have the time and success for it. Thanks for the scan on the Dawson! I love the GU look too with the marking under the autograph.

    Any googly eyes from you is quite the compliment Thanks Adam!

    Thanks so much man! The Zunino is a new favorite. Here is a link to my Felix PC: https://s84.photobucket.com/user/meta...?sort=6&page=1

    I have too many favorites to show, but I think the top 3 right now for me is the Gold Refractor Autograph, the UD Premier 1/1 Logoman (his very first) and the Museum Collection 10/10 logo patch autograph. Your ongoing Stanton PC is beyond amazing itself! Keep up the great work and I can't wait to see you land the barrel and logoman when they surface

    Thank you sir! Lovely card for sure, rare when scans don't do equal justice to the visual look of the card

    Haha thanks Joe! Yeah, I was surprised to come across the Certified one I posted. I have another one I got from [MENTION=1802]Pinbreaker[/MENTION] that I still have. Great patch but I love the 2001 set better:
