I loved 2004- but the 2005 version of "faux art" just visually doesn't hit my eye. Personal preference =its like some folks appreciate blonds ,the others brunettes or redheads.I always liked prime cuts. I have a bunch of Puckett’s. Hopefully I can add more but they don't show up much these days.
Moving onward to the scans of 2005 Playoff Prestige. These will not be all I own. I do know a box is in Utah that has more including some raw and slabbed of the Prestige Playoff Champs. Was asked why so few base cards are being shown - well that's because when I sub I usually send serial numbered, game used, and autos or very rare unnumbered base items. Very rarely will I pop a base item on a sub, unless I feel like just completing a sub-series. Too many base items for me to handle I need to protect the "meat" of the cards collected first. Also I might skip a series if it has less than 5 slabs in it slabbed. An example is 2003 Playoff Portraits as I have most of those raw and wont slab until last as that series is horrible on a personal eye appeal level ( I'm sure our board member artists would disagree).
These 9 are just a few of whats owned . The Playoff Champs I have slabbed are elsewhere have not located yet. I think I just need the AL Wild Card, AL Champs, and NL Champs. Also have the Purple & Green Xtra Bases somewhere as well. Anyways see below. Only reason I think I slabbed the Blue Prestigious Pros is that it was #01/900 thought it was a cool base item. I can say the Red Foil was a surprise. Seller listed it just as a Prestige /25 which could mean anything I've seen scans cut off the 250 or 2500 labels. No back scan no nothing. Purchased it after I ran the pic they had thru my Adobe CS2 and noticed the Red Foil label.Once in house realized it was the insert I needed as the serial number on back was easily visible. Nice cheap low # pickup.
Info on the set can be found here 2005 PRESTIGE
I loved this set lots of cool inserts and some nice game used variations. Believe I have a few unopened boxes in storage will check next year when I can get back home for a bit. That's lint on that first holofoil. In order in my registry/inventory lists.
