    From what I hear Luzardo is at the top of his wish list...he wants the Jesus juice.
    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

    Smart to have PSA grade it. By the time BGS would get around to grading it in 2 years, collectors would have forgotten that it was pulled at the 2018 National.

    PSA Pimp Daddy now tweeting links to national stories about the card (including the images of the card in his company's PSA holder).

    There's a major problem here and I really hope the breakers don't get heat from this.

    The pack was obviously opened live and because of that, every collector now knows the sequence to get a Mantle and Banks which will undoubtedly lead to stampedes of collectors rushing out to their local candy stores and looking through all the 1954 Cello packs on the counter.

    How many 55 Bowman packs could still be around and available that aren't in collections? Or are you being sarcastic, I can't tell.

    There is some deep, deep sarcasm going on there.

    Truly "pack fresh"! Imagine if they had stuck together...

    $500 for a spot in only ONE pack? No thanks...not even for a pack of '52 Topps!

    PSA 9/10 singles, even commons, can bring thousands. Frankly $500 is not that unreasonable given the near certainty for high grade. Biggest risk is centering.

    Dug this out from the way back machine. I mean, this guy was a utility infielder. I have to imagine 55 Bowman PSA 10s could be in line.

    It's an incredible risk to "bet" that 1 card, the single one you paid $500 for, will grade a PSA 9/10. I'm curious to know what the other cards out of that pack were, and what they grade out to be (if they get graded).
