As already mentioned, the auto on this being bold bright solid blue is beyond awesome. I honestly think less than 5 of the print run would have a comparable auto.

That could be nice find if it were the MVP Promotion parallel, but I don't think it is. The stamp doesn't look the same.

It was a tough choice between Feer and Upper Deck; I went with the latter. Both companies were innovative and risk takers. Both are also very nostalgic for me growing up in the 90s and early 200s. As...

I think that range is possible in 5 to 10 years if he continually renews his deal with Panini and Panini remains the sole licensed manufacturer. Even Kobe hit that range, and Barkley is no Kobe.

Sorry to burst your bubble man, but that seal is not for Skybox, but it's for Scoreboard. Scoreboard marketed cards with this seal as buybacks, but they have a less than stellar reputation for autos.
