Some major flipping to start the New Year

Hey Kids,

It's been a minute since I've last posted. I'd like to tell you that this Blog is back and I'll be updating it regularly, but I'm a busy dude with 2 jobs, 2 young kids and a million other things going on. This busy lifestyle has affected my collecting life too. I've had to chill out a bit which turned out to be a blessing in disguise. As opposed to busting a ton of boxes like I normally do, I spent a good portion of last year being patient and picking off some major PC items. Here's what I got and how they came to be.

Over the Summer I popped on 2 boxes of Archives (I love that product). I hit a couple of Monsters in those boxes:

Awesome cards right?!?! Now although I love the movie Bull Durham I don't really care too much for these cards. It was a easy decision to sell.

Next, I decided to enter a single spot break of Topps Transcendent and I'm so happy I did. That single spot yielded my this:

Yet another card that's meaningless to me but I know others are paying big bucks for it. So again I sold.

Here's what I replaced these cards with:


Pretty sweet right? The Jeter is so beautiful and it's my first Certified auto. Here's what's weird about it... I think this is from an UD basketball set. I believe it's the last time he signed while still playing. Whatever it is, I love it.

The Bryant I bought because I have this same card unsigned and oversized from the 2015 National. I wanted an on card auto on an RC to mission accomplished. 

Finally, the Koufax. Not to be morbid but I just have a bad feeling about the "Left arm of God" this year. I wanted to grab an auto of his before (God forbid) he passes and they sky rocket. This was simply a gorgeous card for the right price.

Thanks for the read, I'm hoping to have some more major PC additions to show you throughout the year.


  1. Epic pick ups. The Jeter is the best and I think you made the right choice. I'm next.

    Great example of flipping something you don't want into cards you'll treasure more.
