    Let's keep this thread going folks. Im digging thru my collection daily to add more cards to my website and Im always looking for ideas of what people in the hobby are looking for. www.krazy4kardboard.com is the link if you want to take a look and throw me some feedback. Always looking to improve the site. A new layout is in the works here in the next month or so when I have the spare $150 for the new layout I want. Anyone that has a want list they want to forward to me just hit my profile up and shoot me a message here or on the site, either way will work. Im in my card stash 8 to 10 hours a day most days and I always have my want lists sheet laying around to refresh my memory of what to set aside. Hope everyone has a good turkey day this coming week.

As someone else mentioned, wondering if they stopped production when he died (?). But that would be a bizarre move. Maybe someoneís hoarding SP 2002 Kile cards.

    At any rate, Iíll be reposting on eBayóonly real reason I bought it was on a whim that it was rare and wanted to add more items to my COMC shipment. Iíll list it for a whopping $10 starting bid. Go nuts.
    Posted that Kile card, if anyone needs it.... Itís also an error I guess. Missing the Topps logo foil. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?m...2F292831791734

    A cautionary tale about responding to threads like this one.

    When I saw the title of this thread, I thought it would be cool to point out a relatively unknown rarity of a player that basically nobody else collects. So on October 21, I tell everyone here about the Darryl Kile 2002 Topps Gold card. Just under a month later, one of them pops up. Had I not mentioned it, I would have been the first to see it and I would have added it for $3. Instead, I mentioned it here and Spmjm, a member that has six freaking posts here, purchases it. He relists it for $10.

    Mind you, I basically am the Darryl Kile market and most 2002 Topps Gold set collectors abandoned it long ago. So while the card is RARE, that does not necessarily make it VALUABLE.

    I pass on the card for $10, because this guy basically used my knowledge to try and make money off of me and it didn't sit right. I would love to add the card to my collection, yes, but I it sat wrong with me that he bought the card to try and sell it directly to me. Should be the end of the story, right? Of course not. Two days ago I get a message that if I want it, I'll have to pay what it is worth, with a link to this eBay auction.

    Now they want me to pay $150 if I want to add this card to my collection.

    Do not misunderstand. I am an adult and I just closed the tab and said, "Good luck." But it is a sobering reminder that sharing information with the community can be used against you. I am not angry at this dude for trying to make money. He is going to sit on that card for a very long time at that price point. Just a warning that before you point out that something is rare, there are people like this out there.

    That's pretty low. I've had it happen to me, so I know what it's like.

    We should start a "Get Therion his card" GoFundMe. I'd throw in a dollar! After all, it should be HIS card (Therion's).

    Lol. The collective searching power of FCB will dig another one of these up for you, rest assured! I traffic in bulk topps gold foil anniversary lots sometimes and have this placed on my free bounty list for you in case I ever come across one.

    I did use this thread to make money before but I had the decency to send a thank you dividend/tip to the information provider and the buyers were not FCB people as Topps Heritage has a more robust sales market than the one collector Darryl Kile market.

    Well Therion, you may be an adult, and gahblessyooforit. But I on the other hand, especially after a couple barley pops, don't give a damn. So I'll say it - to hell with that ebay seller. Sneaky arbitrage like that is one of the lower forms of activity on the internet, and I just don't have any patience for it. Scum I say, scum!

    Also, there's 2003 other copies floating around out there. So I'm sure your patience will pay off.

    Definitely a very thin line between advertising your wants and getting help and doing the same and being held hostage. I have had a decent number of people help me out with something because it was mentioned or requested, but equally have had hostage holders reach out, trying to exploit my want lists. I guess in the end, it's nice to have extra eyes looking out for you, but prepare to have the wrong eyes looking as well.

    Well put. Both have happened to me too. I try to give credit when the good guys reach out, but in cases like this....scum!

    Pretty sure I seen this looking through my boxes. I will look again and if I did see it I will sell you it for the price of shipping. Though it could have been in one of the boxes I left in Virginia Beach as well and no clue when I will be going back there.
