Seconded the Jeter is pretty. Also Jim2Cat5 t looks like you got the auto graded too. Are a lot of people doing that now they offer that service? Seems kinda pricey and not as important as when getting them graded by BGS for some weird reason. Maybe I'm just feeling that way since its a new service from them.

I haven't seen that many autos graded by PSA, but you're right, it is a new service offered by them. It's just personal preference for me. I like having that service available for my higher end cards.

Well I screwed up - it was a Flashback Auto Relic /25.


It came in a snap case with the relic obscured by protective foam. Can't fault Topps for being careful but this kind of forces me to bust it out of the case if I was going to sell it.

Just redeemed this and my Judge RC Auto last week and they showed up today with extras to boot - a 2015 Tribute Puig Relic /75 and a flagship Topps deGrom Scouting Report auto.

Gotta clean my scanner

Do you think Topps is aware of Jim and his Heritage collection? He should get his own card next year....

I really look forward to his posts!

Great job Jim!

But it frustrates me that Topps picked an image with so much dark space in it, certainly they could have found a posed shot with lighter surface area for a signature to really pop

Is that Jeter flaking at all in the red circle above right of "shortstop"? Almost looks damaged.

I know when I looked last week there were only 2 corey seagers on ebay! TWO!
as far as I can see now, there are only two again, both graded and well over $100

I will say, usually one seller does not impact the market, a lot can, but there was giant seller that had sp at $1.74 free ship and sp action for under $5 free ship, THEN if you buy 25 or more, 40% off!
I went thru buying all the sp I could, as it came out to $1.04 SHIPPED per SP, haha, you could build the whole sp set for a little over $100 with the discount (minus 6 cards that they had higher or sold out)
why they would do that is beyond me, unless they just don't know about heritage, or forgot they had the discount or something
I actually wanted to sign up to this forum after lurking for a long time to comment on this one particular post. I consider myself a collector. I'm not doing this for business purposes, and I'm not a hoarded. I build one set every year as frugally as possible. I do my homework, but I value money and take care to try to do it the right way.

So, I had a number of cards in my cart as I was trying to buy just one copy of each SP that the referenced seller had listed. At one point, the number of items in my cart started decreasing. I noticed that various cards had been wiped out. A few days later, coming here to BO, I see what happened.

It sucks that things like this happen. So, the pendulum swings both ways. You can say you're a "Collector", but raiding another seller and shutting out other collectors just so you can try to sell more master sets later has really nothing to do with collecting and more about trying to turn a profit.

But, the "haha" in the story above really stuck with me. Lost all respect for this poster after I read this.

You lost respect for the poster because he was getting in on an insanely good deal??

Ha Ha, if you don't like capitalism move to a communist country. Just Kidding
Vance welcome to the boards,

Actually this used to bother me to when I first got into the hobby especially cause I have to pay for my PC with out using credit and by the time I got up the cash some big buyer bought it and listed it for XX amount more. It still happens to me often but now I try tofocus on the good and not hate.

The poster you referenced is a great asset to this hobby and was buying those from that seller more likely to prevent him from crashing the market than rather spite other collectors (but I will let him speak for his self)
