    I'll sell when I get the offers I'm looking for. There isn't a whole lot on the market right now and I don't want to be a pig...

    Ronald Acuna sales have been so hot they could start a forest fire. He's become the crown jewel of the loaded 2017 Bowman class of prospect autos. Right out the gate his base autos were in the $50 range. Among his promotion to AA they began to exceed $100 and less than a month ago they hit $200. As of right now they are exceeding $200 (a raw base auto went for $240 a couple days ago). Judge & Bellinger are the only other "current" prospect/rookie autos selling for more.
    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> https://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    Sounds like with a stash like that u could part with a Kyle Lewis, maybe a refractor or something

    Bring me your Bickford, Ryan McMahon, Senzatela and Peter Lambert cards
    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    I've been picking up Topps Update RCs I don't have, as they just seem to keep going up. I think Trout, Kershaw and Harper have gone up so much that others seem to be following suit. I've picked up a few in the last couple of weeks I wish I would have grabbed a couple months ago....

    I had like 15 of them and I gave them all away to John Ryno a couple years back.

    I was preparing for the move to SC and needed to toss tens of thousands of cards I no longer had room for so I separated certain players into lots and gave em away to members of Blowout. I opened so many cases of 2011 Topps Update when it came out. So many cards tossed. Although I held onto certain rookies like Goldschmidt. Sold my Trouts a few years back. Sold lots of the top rookies. Still have a bunch of rookies from Update but none of the big guns.

    Probably right, along with the RC logo.

    Another good point. Topps printed a ton of cases of BC during Strasburg mania.

    Also, do die hard collectors consider the BC prospects as inserts?
