More slabs back from BGS ( and it appears some re-slabs en route back from PSA this week). Happy camper not because of grades, but because I have a lot of re-sales to do for holidays-- which happen to have lots of medical doc appointments mixed in as well ( and bills such as yearly renewals)

The Mac and Mad Bums-already spoken for. Mailing Monday to their new owners. Mini Silver MadBum is numbered to 5. Epix cards driving me crazy- either popping BGS/PSA 5 and 6's due to surface flaws, or BGS/PSA 8/9 and above.
Will be posting more Clemens registry stuff soon also now that my 2005 Elite serial numbered stuff popped.

Gonna have to upgrade a bunch of these Elite recent returns as I prefer silver and gold ( white is fine with game used)
I do have spares about the place just gotta locate and prep to send those in down the road for upgrade shots
If you own any Elite Teams # 3 or #9 see me = I pay above eBay for great condition ones mailed / protected well

More to follow got a lot of 2005 Donruss Elite serial numbered insert stuff back
,
,
These are all newly slabbed Elite Teams # 3 Astros which had Bagwell, Biggio, Berkmann and Clemens
Quite a combo of players to be on one card. I always liked multi superstar cards even in the 60's

More scanned slabs for inventory girl- these are the current 2005 ELITE TEAMS #9 YANKEES variations that have Clemens/Mussina/Soriano and Bernie Williams on them
,
,
The three new ones and the Jersey copy I already had . I have a bunch of the #6 Astros and these #9 Yanks still in the grading backlog at BGS

More to follow- the usual "backed up excuse" with more important things to use my time & energy on

@jmc855 think someone linked a comment you had and sent it to my email recently i just have been too busy to offer an opinion. Believe that 2005 Fleer Final Edition card had a stamped 1/1, and a bunch of unnumbered versions ( believe approximately 10) come out of the bankruptcy. The bankruptcy paperwork is deeply buried back east. I do believe the online inventory though still is accessible if you have PACER access ( which most people do not).


More slab scans caught up. The Brady are already up and running. Updated my Clemens registry as well with more will post those
Been too busy mailing slabs back, doc visits, more doc visits, work etc etc etc
These two Gem Brady back. Wish my PSA backlog Brady would pop , a lot of resales and bunch of PC Brady on those

On my 2005 Elite set got the 2005 Elite Face2Face # 1 Clemens/Rolen back. And boy was I embarassed by one major boo boo. I have more Black no biggie will just send another off missed a surface flaw on back. Gotta see if I have another Gold lying around

I also added these three 2005 Elite Face 2 Face #7 Clemens / Pujols slabs
As you can see from the black version- from my view it's upside down ( I hate left side labels)
Will pay to have it re-slabbed so label shows on the right I hate left side labels

I already owned this Dual Bats version and have to locate my # to 200 jersey version and slab it

I also got a mislabeled Galactic Brady back that's going back as well
Good news is they are very good at quick fixes. Common error -PSA did it to me as well on a Galactic I sent them

Ty! Interesting situation w the 05 classic clippings. Learn something new every day. 10 copies. I have no idea what PACER even means, and I am a nobody just trying to make my way on the internet, so no I dont have access lol. Are you a former Fleer guy with inside scoop? Bankruptcy lawyer who handled it? NSA agent who has the dirt on everything haha? Dont mean to ask ignorant questions if it's common knowledge.

@jmc855 The PACER system is used by the courts for case tracing/documentation- can trace the Fleer Bankruptcy info if your aware of the case # and info. You can access it only if you have a basis for doing so. I was a credit manager who still does some occasional judgment recoveries. Hence I have access still. Since that was a public one they "might" have PDF on file for public access.

More scanned slabs for inventory girl from various sets. All recently back
The 2007 Turkey Red Chrome Refractor was a gift card years ago- maybe 2014- from Max G, one of my slab club guys
Held it aside while I caught up game used. Then moved and buried. Recently came across it and decided to send off
Kept it in good condition at least !!
The 2005 Timeless Treasures Jsy # /21 = average grade for the series. They were poorly packaged inside the tins and jostle around
The 2005 Sweet Spot Platinum- think its only the 2nd card I've slabbed from that year- the other is a Clemens/Randy glove dual auto

Happy with the grades- all as expected. More to scan folks gonna go enjoy my freebie Veterans Day meal with the wife

Continuing catch up scans some new items back from the 2006 TRISTAR PROSPECTS PLUS series
Never purchased any of the 06TPP boxes because it was a minor league series, and I had more expensive stuff to buy like Exquisite. Been plucking minor stuff up here and there. As you can see another left side upside down slab I'll get fixed so the slab label is where I like it
Always prefer right side labels so they match the thousands of other slabs labeled that way I own
,
,
Info about the series can be found here 2006 tristar boxes
,
,
These three were added- 3rd one is going back to be re-positioned, and I already owned and slabbed the Dual auto years ago

More slab catch up. You may remember a while ago I broke a 2019 TCU baseball box- another slabbed one is back
More are coming just slowly. Added another base Jsy from 2005 Timeless Treasures, and a resale Tom Brady item

More slabs- a couple of resales, and two more for the Clemens registry
Also catching up on PC inventory scans will post those in a bit
Can't do much about the Wilson it came straight out of a fresh pack break

When last I left the Clemens inventory believe I had to started 2004 LEAF LIMITED
First up after those cards are the #135 Astros items I have slabbed already. I'm sure I have more loose somewhere to slab including a whole bunch of Spotlight cards. I'll get to them when I come across them.

Gonna start with the Spotlight cards since that's where the registry starts it at
Then move on to the Monikers, Threads, and Timber items
Missing below is my Silver Spotlight

Think I just happened to pluck a 1/1 BIN back then. I generally only want 1 of the 1/1 from any series to consider that series complete
The DLP folks had too many to waste time/money on getting them all

OK next up scan wise is the 2004 LEAF LIMITED MONIKERS portion. Nothing is easy in a low serial numbered set which describes the majority of 2004 Leaf Limited . Gotta tell you of all the colors they used (blue/green/some strange magenta/orange) I like the Green best
Two autos numbered to 10 and two numbered to 5. Checked off and I'm done on this subset

Last , but not least- the hardest to locate of all of this series. The Astros Timber/25 was harder to locate than expected- and, well = the others speak for themselves in terms of difficulty. The Astros subset took me the longest to finish due to the difficulty of finding the below items

Years ago had help buying the buttons for this series ( eternal thanks to @roybirchler , @aprimo , @Pinbreaker )

OK gonna post the 2004 LEAF LIMITED #182 RED SOX Clemens versions. Seems I misplaced a few base items, and lord knows if I even own a Gold Spotlight
Of the 11 cards available have 8 slabbed, one not, and
two I need to locate. I do know I have multiple Silver spotlight dupes.Bronze gotta locate where I put one and slab it

Haven't done any inventory of this series in 10 yrs +. Even snagged a 1/1 offline years ago
Have the auto/10 and the /5 signature plus the button card. Missing also the Signature Jersey Number/10 and believe the only difficult one I have left is a Bat /5 version.

Last up is all the slabbed 2004 LEAF LIMITED #190 YANKEES Clemens versions I have slabbed. Somewhere I have another couple jersey pieces and some Bronze Spotlights I need to get encased. Strangely I forgot to enter the TNT slab into my registry- in there now

Two of the 3 spotlights are done, and most of the jerseys / autos. Added a button and lucked out on a 1/1 piece as well. Missing a Monikor Jsy/Auto # to 10 and a Moniker/Bat # to 5 piece to complete the series
Like usual not slabbing base cards until all my jersey/auto/serial # pieces are done
