    Interesting! I wasn't even aware such a set existed. Didn't know they made a Stadium Club set in '08.
    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 - >>>>> http://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

I'd rank any players Topps Black RC as their 2nd best card next to their 1st Bowman Chrome color autographs. If you're unfamiliar with them - Kershaw Topps Black RCs sell well north of $1k, and a Jose Altuve BGS 9 just sold 2 days ago for $2,146.21!:

    I'd argue certain players have a more desirable non-auto. RC parallel. I'd much rather own a 2002 Bowman Chrome Draft Gold Refractor of Votto than the 2004 auto.

    You need to get yourself one, they are climbing. Iíve had mine for probably six years or so and it was dirt cheap at the time.

    How kind of you but I'm not strictly a Braves guy. I don't discriminate, I'll collect rookie/prospect autos of any potential HOF'er, despite the teams they play for and I actually really do want a nice Scherzer rookie auto. You'd be hard pressed to find many pitchers who have been as dominant as him since 2013. Trading him was one of the D-Backs worst mistakes ever.

    Then I hope you have a ton of Gleyber.

    The Dbacks also traded Didi and Dansby and probably Duplantier soon enough

    Yeah, losing Didi sucked but at least we got Robbie Ray out of it. Dansby was another ridiculous trade...at least it was the Braves who got him. Otherwise I'd be pissed.

    Moral of the story: If the D-Backs have a good young prospect or player then expect 'em to be with another team within the next couple years. Duplantier applies. Maybe pinstripes too?

    Considering where his Topps Chromes are selling, you should be pleased.

    I would love to pick up a Scherzer rookie soon, but is the 2018 Topps Stadium Club Auto Scherzer's best/key rookie?

    He has three other rookie autos:
    2008 SPx #150 Autograph
    2008 Upper Deck Ballpark Collection #142 Autograph
    2008 Upper Deck Sweet Spot #139 Autograph #/299
    2008 Upper Deck Ultimate Collection #102 Autographed Jersey #/99
    Looking for the following Larkin cards:
    - '97 Finest Gold Embossed Refractor
    - '98 Donruss Crusade Red (even a photo)
    - '96 Select Certified Mirror Gold (even a photo)
    - '98 Leaf Fractal Materials Z2 Axis
    - '99 Fleer Tradition Starting Nine
    - '98 and 99 Metal Universe Precious Metals

    For Altuve it should be his Update. That is his key rookie and it outsells his BC easily.

    I'd imagine it's 2008 Upper Deck Ultimate Collection #102 Autographed Jersey #/99. Lowest print run, plus Upper Deck used to be respected as a card producer (until they lost their license in 2010).

    I posted this at the beginning of the season. Crazy how much prices have changed for some guys. Trout is more than 2x the price here. Betts is as well (though starting at a fraction of the price of Trout).

    A 2010 BC Nolan Arenado Red Refractor Autograph /5 BGS 9.5 Auto 10 sold for $20,000 a little over a week ago.
