    Red face My First Razor Metal Buy... Opinons?

    I just came across this today and thought I would buy one. I have a lot of Razor Hosmer stuff including the /5 so I thought I would add. His average or homers hasn't been great yet. However, he has been a RBI machine. Anyone else buy one?
    They were $20.00

    Re: My First Razor Metal Buy... Opinons?

    I picked up my first Razor Metal Auto's a couple weeks ago... (5) Jemile Weeks Blue Auto's for $10/pop. Seemed like a pretty solid price given his upside and production so far this season, and the print run was 53 I believe. Don't know too much about Hosmer but nice card!

    Yeah I just hope Razor sends me a gradeable one... I saw Chris's Crow blue that graded a 9.5 and it looked sharp

    I like them, but they need more detail, including information on the backs and serial numbers.
    My only Razor Metals on my dusty arse scanner.


    I wanted to get more gold because I noticed they didn't all go via auction.
    Was told only listed ones were available. That sucked.

    Hosmer I think is a great pickup. I got one of the blues and one of the golds. I agree with the above poster that I do wish there was serial numbering and some information on the back.

    add about 25 to that from me and only one gem, which was a base card (not an auto)

    these metals seem like a tough grade, and any 9.5 should carry a nice premium

    I think the gold's (w/only 27 made) were a far better deal as they are ending for $23-$24ish range. I was thinking about picking up a blue at $20+s/h but I saw the gold's ending at only a few dollars more, which leads me to worry a bit about the hobbies outlook on these...I mean I understand Hosmer isn't performing up to expectation's, and this in itself could have been a key point in explaining the cause of these seemingly very low completed sv's on these "IF" it were only Hosmer who was selling at such a seemingly low SV. But I'm not just speaking of Hosmer here, as these are seemingly low across the board, which I believe is why so many think they're landing such great deals & they very well could be (let me be very clear that I am not trying to take anything away from those of you who are buying these, as I cannot fore-tell the future & cannot forecast the future SV's/worth of these card's! I am only stating what I have recently seen through completed auction listing's & then coming to a conclusion by comparing thier worth, or what they "should" be selling for, in comparison to thier UD USA counterpart's!)....
    Either way, I guess for $20ish you really can't complain getting a SP'd Hosmer auto!

    My local card shop owner would pay nicely for the Crow, because everyone in KC is wanting them now...

    For a few bucks more getting the gold which is half the supply seemed like a better buy but as a future Royal, the blue fits well with teams colors
    Topps Pro Debut red 1/1 Mike Foltynewicz --- good stuff
    "for the betterment of the hobby"
    I will not forget the broken promises or the threat!!!
    Bea Arthur WAS hot! -- I am proud that I never did anything selfish and hurt my family by being weak and doing drugs
    Looking for Razor B Wallace 2/5, B Lawrie 4/5, B Wallace 5/5, B Posey 5/5 Sig Series. These specific cards have not popped up yet . Neither has that Buster Posey USA jersey from Letterman
    The power of Baseball America --- log on and be an expert.
    Shouldn't one actually see a player play before they become an "expert?" Otherwise, isn't it just shuffling another's list?
