    That Jeter is awful and a card of this value, I would have high res images and show the stamped lettering..

    Man. Appreciate the info you shared. Unfortunate for the bidders on eBay who either are unaware of this message board or who think they're bidding on a pack-pulled Masterpiece.

    Or when you do, he's got a modern jersey photo. Well done on that one.

    Holy crap. I thought the final value was a little low for this card.

    Hey guys and gals,

    It's been a long time, hope all are well. After much deliberation (and with great heartache), I announce I am selling off my Griffey collection. It's been a hell of a ride and one of the greatest passions of my life. Rather than list the big guns on eBay, I thought I would first reach out to the best group of Griffey collectors I know. Sorry the pics aren't great - I can send more if needed (also scans in my bucket).

    These have been well cared for and are in great condition - added a few notes below.

    Shoot me a PM if interested!

    Do you have any non-numbered Griffey Mariners autos or is that your entire collection? I cannot fathom the amount those are worth all together! Would love a shot at my first Griffey auto though, especially from a board member!

    Dan - best of luck with the sale(s)!

    In similar fashion, I'm looking to sell the card below; making it available here before eBay. PM me if interested.

    Condition notes: There is chipping along the back bottom edge of card (see picture). Additionally, the front top right corner is slightly raised; not dinged or rounded, just not sharp.

    Just an introduction. I just wanted to take a quick moment to introduce myself to the fellow Griffey collector's on this forum. Like many I had always collected Junior as a kid growing up. Once college rolled around I fell out of the collecting sport. Over the past few years though, I've been able to re-enter and enjoy collecting now more than ever. I've recently started frequenting FCB because of the wealth of knowledge here. However, I've not posted because I'm not sure I bring any value to the conversation yet. Hopefully, that will change & I can possibly help some fellow collector's out along the way. As a way to end the intro, this is as close as I got to Junior at Cooperstown. I thought the auto was going to happen, but it didn't. Oh well, it was an awesome experience, & I hope some of you guys got a chance to go as well. Best always, Jake

    What's the scoop with these? COA from The Score Board, apparently sold on QVC?
