    The Great 1996 Select Certified Mirror Gold Auctions Of 2019 From PWCC

    Not what I expected to see on eBay tonight.

    I feel like this is going to need a thread all to itself.

    Itís mesmerizing just to scroll through them on the app and watch the gold go by.

    I will enjoy watching, and good luck to everyone who goes after their guy!

    (I guess there are 130+ mirror blues as well, but...)

    And go...

    I saw the Mark Grace's pop up. Will have to look at the others. The Grace, to my eyes, looks like the protective film was peeled. Are all of them peeled? I actually prefer them not peeled, although they don't show as well.

    Glad I already have the 3 Graces (Gold, Blue, Red). Will be interesting to see the hammer prices!

    I haven't seen one of these in 18 years.

    That's a whole lot, makes me wonder what other 90s treasures that consignee (consignor?? I'm not sure which is which) has. It would be hard to believe there wasn't more from other sets and years unless they've already sold them off.

    The Frank Thomas graded a 5? Must be some terrible surface scratches or something.

    Makes me wonder if vintagesnowmobiles finally came to his senses and realized that his asking prices are ludicrous.

    It's got an upper corner ding and wear on both bottom corners. Looks like it's been peeled, so may have some surface scratches, too.

    Really interesting auctions. I will be really curious to see end prices for all of them. There's an Alomar in the mix but it's a PSA 6. I think it's because it has two refractor lines. Normally I don't care about that stuff, but for a white whale it does make a difference to me. I don't think I would be happy if I paid top dollar for a cornerstone card and then had to stare at its imperfections unhappily ever after...

    That A-rod is VERY interesting...oversized/overcut with the sheet corner lines still present. PSA must have decided not to grade it.

    Good eye. On most other mid to high end cards I'd be OK with those corner marks, but on 96 mirror gold they would friggin' kill me.

    Very interested in the Frank here. I hope the grade deters everyone else from bidding.
    Looking for 2011 Topps Marquee Museum autographs, rare Frank Thomases, and any Grady Sizemores I don't have

    The Great 1996 Select Certified Mirror Gold Auctions Of 2019 From PWCC

    So how about an over/under for what all those mirrors are going to sell for? With 100+ in the lot and some key ones like Frank Thomas, Puckett, and others in the lot I have to think that all of these Mirror Golds are going to top $100,000. Maybe $150,000? Hell of a collection!
