ALWAYS LOOKING FOR ODDBALL, REGIONAL, TEAM ISSUED, VARIATIONS, AND TOUGH CARDS OF WILL CLARK AND MIKE BROWN
Griffey Jr, Molitor and Jeter. Going to be hard to replace those for a respectable price. But in no rush. I wondered how long that one was sitting there. Hopefully it is clean with no refractor lines.
A few observations, the holo-foil held up terribly. Some obvious splitting on the surface and they don't appear to be your typical scratches, more like stretch marks. All were stored in appropriately fitted screw downs.
Also, the Frias appears to have missed the holo-foil coating - though it's hard to tell in hand.
Now for an actual PC pickup! I vowed to pickup the next one - any player - that popped up after regretting moving my Vlad. Who knew it would take so long! 100 copies, suuure.
Nice pickups. You are right. Someone has been paying crazy amounts for these.
I'm DelBacon on Sportlots, tons of great cards!
