Has to be. At least as far as a "regular" signers are concerned. I imagine Jeter for baseball may be close.

Always a fun break. Value is pretty limited though. Even for some of the better auto's that they usually have in quantity (e.g. Matt Damon, Tom Hanks, etc.), you'll see they re-sell for under $40. ...

There were 5 Reds and I believe 1 black for 2015 tek. There were no actual base auto's except for ones that were backdoored (e.g. to Official Pix in exchange for the signing).

They had a Quest game that allowed users to compete for some pretty cool cards like Gretzky and McDavid auto's, rookie shields, etc. But that game is over so not worth the price.

$500 seems high. Based on the Greens, I'd throw that on eBay as an auction and let any rainbow makers bid it up. I bet you'll end up in the $250 range or better like Rey.

This. Talking smack down 20. Can't wait when they show this clip in a few years when OkC has a 1-15 record against the Warriors post-KD. But at least RW will have lots of stats.

While Jones isn't scarce, I think most would say any case she's in is above average. Congrats!
