    I'd like to pick up a few baseball cards but don't know enough right now. Gonna start watching more MLB this year and learn about different sets and all.

    Re: HGA, they are only accepting 2500 cards a week I think and they do a queue system like you're buying a PS5 lol. Was already hard to get in, now imagine it's near impossible after the PSA announcement unless they start accepting more.

    HGA slabs definitely look great, this is only hockey card I am seeing on ebay, looks awesome:

    Yeah, I’ve been reading up about HGA’s process. They have some sort of weekly lottery system and they limit submissions to 5 per customer, so they’re at least trying to combat what PSA is going through now.

    As for the look of the slabs, I like how you can also match the card, like this Metcalf. I’ll probably go with matching the card on all the parallel Bohms.

    Last week they were accepting 2500 cards. So 5 per person, that's only 500 people getting orders in. Was busy at the drop time but I hopped in line late just to see how many were waiting and was close to 4000 in the queue.

    Cannadips, CBD company, was doing a promotion where 16 winners each get 1 card from a pack of 2021 Topps Definitive Collection Baseball Cards. These cards are insane. One box sells for almost $2,000....

    Just pulled a signed, game used patch, Ripken Jr card

    Pulled a 1 of 1 Phil Rizzuto

    2021 Topps Definitive Collection Baseball remains a product for the high-end MLB collectors. Exclusively issued in a Hobby box format, the set promises a hit-only experience filled with on-card autographs and print runs of 50 or less.
    Each Hobby box contains six autograph or autograph relic cards, and two relics.

    I got to position 565 when the card limit was reached. This card market is insane.

    Another win with my bid being the only one. Wasn't even watching this one, I found it with about 10 minutes left in the auction.

    I only got to about position 700 today on HGA. Man, this grading is frustrating. I’m about ready to just sell off all my cards in one lump sum and be done with it. Anyone have a few grand burning a hole in their pocket? Haha

    Belfour Pro Set rookie for over $100? That's insane... I'll have to check, but I have at least 5 of those.

    For an era of oversaturation, my cards are worth way more than I ever would have believed. :amazed:

    Haha yeah, I was never following the card market until about a year or so ago but everyone has had that same reaction to the 90's cards being worth anything.

    A bunch of hockey cards in that guy's top Vintage ebay sales video from last week if you're interested:

    My mom and her brother had dozens of Yankees sets from the late 40s through early 60s that were destroyed in a house fire in the early 80s.

    I can never let her know how much some of these single cards are selling for today. :laugh:

    My parents were walking around their neighborhood yesterday and some guy was having a garage sale so they walked in. He was selling a HUGE collection of Flyers stuff. I went over after work and picked up a bunch of stuff (including an Eric Desjardins game used stick, some bobbleheads, a full size cutout of the Beezer signed by him, and some other stuff). He had a ton more including as stick signed by the last Cup team, tons of signed pucks and photos and hats, but the crown jewel which I would have bought if I had the room was this piece of the Spectrum signed by Ron Hextall. It was about 15 feet tall. If anyone is interested he is asking for $500.

    PXL_20210407_210804253.jpg

    For scale that Flyers logo in between his legs is the full size Beezer cardboard cutout. This thing is huge and heavy duty, not cardboard. It was part of the concourse in the old Spectrum. Trying to convince my brother (who is also my boss) to purchase it for our conference room.

    Something seems off about the scale here. That does not look 15 feet tall if you compare it to the table lol

    15 is an estimate. IDK if it is bigger or smaller. I am 6 foot and it was much taller than me and it was under a raised house up on stilts in the garage.
