Yadi and Waino 300th start.jpg

Still not a big fan of Topps Now but this one I had to have. I hope they make another one next year when they break the All Time Record.

Some pickups over the last week:

Some nice horizontal cards. I think the Chapman may be my first GU helmet card.

The Austin Beck is a 1/5 Red Refractor. Andrus I think is my first "Platinum Anniversary" parallel, 15/70. The Cahills are both tough parallels from crappy minor league sets, 35/50 and 24/25.

The 2020 Dilfer is one of those "buyback" autographs that isn't actually a buy-back, since the original version of this card was numbered /25 on the top right and this one isn't numbered. Either it was a replacement card or they purposefully held it back for a future buyback set.

Here's the regular version from 2018:

Got some color in yesterday:

The Olson was the last non-auto Blue Refractor I needed from 2012. It went cheaper than I was expecting ($11 plus shipping) which I assume is because the centering means it wouldn't grade super high. I remember centering being a pretty common issue with that set so it doesn't bug me too much. It's super clean otherwise. Still need to find an Addison Russell auto cheap to completely finish the Blues from that year.

Snagged this one fairly cheap to get a look at a CSG slab in hand. Yes the label really is bigger than Peyton Manning's forehead. I won't be buying many CSG slabs going forward and this will be flipped as soon as he wins MVP.

Some Waino parallels

Some Matt Holliday parallels - Matt is one of my non-focused player collections. He's a great guy and he's an Oklahoman so it never hurts my feelings to pick up nice parallels in Cardinals lots.

A couple of Dylan Carlsons that are just the start of a flood that's coming this week

Are the slabs the same size as BGS or PSA? I have never used CSG before but I was considering grading some low end that doesn't make sense to do with either of them because of current service level cost.

They're just slightly shorter than a PSA slab but about the same width. I put it in a PSA Superior Fit sleeve and it is a decent fit. The plastic of the slab itself is probably the best I've seen. They're super clear. I just can't get over the label being roughly the size of a billboard on an interstate highway.

Some cool stuff i grabbed in Sept. Tek Gold refractor was SUPER cheap becuase it has a small speck of gold missing. Good enough for me!

REALLY love the American Flag Bowman Chrome International. Finest Die Cut Embossed is cool too.

Thanks for the information. No rush at the moment, so I'll see how things play out at these grading companies the next few months.
