Makes me wonder if the seller bought this for WAY more than it's worth and was shilling his "flip" auction so he wouldn't lose money...or...maybe he's affiliated with "samantha saints sportscards" and they were trying to generate new hype over these cards (hype we saw a few months ago when PWCC flooded ebay with 1996 MGs) to try to justify their grossly overpriced inventory.

    Thoughts?

    Saints is always playing games with stuff. He actually does sell a good amount though but this is 100% not real

    This is a long overdue post. Huge thanks and shout out to [MENTION=2418]George_Calfas[/MENTION] for hooking me up with this card. I player collect 90's inserts of both Pedro Martinez and Mike Piazza, and had each of their 1998 and 1999 Circa Thunder Super Rave #/25 cards EXCEPT the 1999 Pedro. In fact, I had never seen one. Then one day George asked me if I needed it and fast forward (a few years, lol, we both were busy) it finally showed up last year. and then, it sadly took me even more time to scan and post. But here it is!

    I collect Pedro Martinez, Mike Piazza, Clayton Kershaw, Dodgers prospects and Trevor Bauer (and anything nice that catches my eye)

    another card I wanted to share, as we all remember the great COMC / Donruss Crusade Executive Sample gold rush in early 2011

    at the time, I never saw any Mike Piazza cards, and it was widely speculated on who had executive samples made. I assumed Piazza was not included in that set.

    8 years later, this card popped up on ebay via PWCC. I really struggled with buying from them but at the same time always wondered whether any Piazza #XXX sample cards were ever made. glad to have picked it up, and now I'm on the lookout for the Red and Green parallels!

    I've been reading all those threads on BO about PWCC and "conservation", but to tell the truth if they put up an Alomar Crusade promo at auction, I'd bid on it. Hate to say it, but it's true. Would not pay a high premium for it, regardless of the bullsh*t grade, but I would put in a bid for what I thought it was worth and let it ride. So congrats for winning that thing and adding it to a collection where it belongs.

    Sweet! I found the green and purple canseco executive...i targeted the green due to its superior color matching with the A's uni and equal rarity...i was able to add it after I called it quits supercollecting, and it is one of my favorites!

    I love Executive Proofs, but I've never had a shot at any Frank Crusade proofs. Excellent snag!

    ^Thanks guys, yep, it's a sweet card, I guess the Purple is the closest I will come to "color matching" with the Dodger blue

    good luck to everyone who is hunting these down, I hope my experience gives you some hope!

    Thought I would bump this thread with a fun acquisition. This one had been teasing me for a while and the price seemed to keep getting a little better. Then with the 10% eBay bucks I took the plunge! I didnít start out trying to do it but I have a nearly complete set at this point too. Missing a couple of the keys in Will Clark and Frank Thomas but many of the ones I do have are BGS 9s and 9.5s.
