Been busy doing personal stuff the last few days and more doc visits with wife. Scanning was back burner to my PSA subs
Got some time so some new scans. Some Clemens and a few new others once I get that far.
The Diamond Dominators was my first 10 back in the day and that and the Metal Universe made me happy when they came back. Anyone who has subbed either series knows the Gem difficulties. Refractor Gems are relatively common although I seem to be the only one subbing Clemens. The team book I have a bunch of PSA 10 I may cross over 1 day.
This got the Auth label as my hand slipped cutting it manually so the line is wavy hence the no grade auth slab.

What is the "Team Book" designation? I have never heard of this somehow.
Look at eBay auction 303497793936 Billy. Any Donruss card from these books is going to display certain characteristics having been hand cut from the books. Cool little 80's innovation. Mine my hand slipped and I was slightly off producing a wavy line. I'll try again, I have some books here, and a few PSA 10 I'll try with.

No posts in my own thread in 8 weeks tells you how busy its been in my life
Some recent stuff back. I have more to follow as I catch up on lots of projects I am behind on
First BGS sub in 18 months back. And a few PSA re-slabs with new slab covers
Scanning more will show of more as I catch scanning and my registries up

Love the 93FinestThrowbacks :love: Robert -- and the Tigers not so bad either !! Think I have an Ichiro rookie somewhere. Should be in everyone's collection.

Thanks. The Robert was an exciting pull. It was the first pack of my one box break. Stashed the other box in the closet for another day.

@Joey_peapod First love :love: the Griffey's nice collection of them !! This is why people who work the 1990s Finest sets are on a never ending quest to complete their sets. Although Phillip Gold died there are still lots of collectors of that 1993 set ( he was just the most aggressive) including our very own @George_Calfas . Good time to pop that 1993 one up is Turkey Day weekend when feebay offers a ton of promotions enticing high end buyers. I completed my 1993-1995 sets years ago and have been working on 1996-1999 the last 8 years. Stuck in the Killer B's right now but making headway so its all good. Only way some of the players will get here for the sets is relationships with player collectors. Wish my fingers were not always in so many pies otherwise I'd have probably completed dozens of projects years ago. But that's also why the hobby never gets boring for me ( the dozens of projects) so I'm cool with slow slogs.

Another slab scan caught up. With #7 back leaves me I believed with 7 or 8 still at PSA and will be done with ALL the Mark McGwires from that 1998 Pacific HR History set with most in PSA 9 or better condition. Think maybe 1 or 2 PSA 8 which I can upgrade.

Some supersized slabs back from PSA ( large slabs 4 inch wide by 7 inch tall)
Not the largest I have but big enough !! If folks remember my Red Sox PC posts I own tons of disc sets.
Slabbing a lot of PC items and selling others.








Goes well with the Papa Ginos I've had for a while now

The slab these Gold 5x7 come in is massive ( 6.5 inches by 10 inches).
Grade was as expected tough to keep these large cards in perfect shape and Topps products are not knowing for great production. Part of a Gold Update series # to 10 set Topps Produced. Purchased a couple as I wanted 1 ultra modern players items specifically. Will post more supersized items as they come back. Have about 35 to get scanned.
Pop 1 and good luck if someone tries getting one of the other 9 sets done :)

Bunch more Clemens newly scanned for insurance purposes
Taking me forever just like last time I had to do it
Not sure where my Class 3 or Row 3 are I do know I had some gems so maybe in another box

Also got some jumbos back from PSA recently . Quite a few "surprises" I will deal with and learn from
Some I expected and others -- well lets say I'll overprotect my next shipments of supersized stuff
Also scan the crap with high res images and look them over well before sending in a really well protected double box system
That said the Ruth has a dent (unexpected), same with Garciaparra ( my fault as it was only soft sleeve item- lesson learned)
The Munson certainly did not leave the way it came back is all I'll say on that one- see comments above

These cards are fairly large- slabs are 6.5 by 10 inches so pretty big slabs ( expensive to slab- $20.25 cost to slab)
Hence why people try and be careful about what they send in
