Love the set up, especially the Project 2020 display. You've got a Magic-esque vibe going with the curio.
Now that's a shrine to a favorite player- wow
I've decided Rickey collectors are right up there on the insanity level with Griffey, Jeter, Ripken, and McGwire guys.
I collect a certain mid 2000's set numbered to 25. The MOST any card has sold in the last 10 years- Rickey.
Not even close either. An Albert Pujols from the set sold for $70 and that's only equaled by 2-3 other cards
I've got sales going back 15 years on the set.
I just watched an auction on eBay where a Rickey version # 01/25 sold for $300
Repeat- three hundred dollars !!
Hat's off to that player collector-- you are definitely a "super" collector who loves Rickey to pay that much
Have to be happy with a pull like that. The set has some big hitters, but a lot of average Joe stuff too. I bought them for my collection, but guys like Sutton, Baker and Oliver for example would not make most people happy to pull, aside from being an autographed card instead of a base!
