We have a winner.

The exact amount was NOT guessed, but we did have one pretty darn close. The guesses were all over the place ranging from $.00 to $350.00.  Several people placed some really low amounts because of some of the deals in the past. I do miss those deals. I'd like to think that I got a deal on this box, but I know it wasn't a SUPER DEAL. 2000 parallel cards mixed with autographs and relic cards. I paid $250.00 which makes shoeboxlegends the winner at $222 (his lucky number is 2). Email me your address.  Thank you for playing.

An IMPERFECT world

In an imperfect world we can have imperfect cards. I recently bought two such cards otherwise I would of never been able to own.



 

Definitely TRIMMED. I still have no idea why ANYONE actually believes they could pass off a trimmed card.






Go figure the Braves card is the most obvious trim job, but that is A OK with me, because besides the team set need, I need the set build need, and the PC. Works for me, but bot so much as the ...........



$7.25 I paid for these two together and delivered.

The "game" ends tonight, and I will announce over the weekend the winner.


Have a great weekend!

All over the place

The guesses have been all over the place ($15-300). I'll let the guessing go on through Friday night at midnight. Remember this is for all 2,000 cards of parallels and inserts. The highlights were scattered over 5 posts. Reminder of rules:

US follower, only 1 guess, don't go over.

The Game continues

This edition has the non PC autographs and relics from the box.





a bunch of sticker autos.



These 3 aren't bad although the bottom two are stickers. I really don't like the sticker autos. That would be one hell of an improvement (to lose them) along with all the parallels. Just way too many. I'm good with 2 or 3, but anymore than that, just nuts.





These on card look SO MUCH better!





I need a base card of Elih Merrero for my NAMES binder.







The Jersey Kings are bland even though 3 different colors. Logos here were make a world of difference. Now that Russell card is not and works without the logos too.





For commemorative patches the All Star one isn't that bad looking.








Going to close the game out with these whatever you call them. I did include PC guys with these medallions things.  I remember when they first came out, my dealer buddy back home (Bob) had a bunch of these traded to him, and on the very day he got them someone paid $25.00 for the Kershaw. 

Anyways folks  remember that there were 2K cards in the box. Time to make your guesses.

First US follower to correctly guess wins, and if no one hits it spot on, the first closest without going over wins.


Have a great night and good luck.

Game PC last day

Tonight is the last night of the PC cards, there still more after these.





Those Frank Thomas cards are great!






More purple.









Nothing like a bunch of Ripkens. And I just won a 1982 Fleer Ripken RC tonight, yeah me. I still need the Topps Traded RC.















Very colorful. I need both of those Wright/Strawberry as both players are PC guys.











The next batch of cards will be autos and relics.

part two of the game

Player Collections. It's going to take a few posts to get through these.



I'd never seen the Platinum Series "game" cards before. Apparently, this was the only year as the game was pretty much the same as another one out there (they were sued).





Nice gold TSC.  Ya know, I like the yellow bordered cards.







The non card is a rainbow foil.  they just don't scan well.





See you can't tell on these either.








Lots of pink.



That green Jr, really looks good next to its base in this scan.








See I told you there was hundreds of the purple cards.




other PC guys.




All RC cards.


Have a great day!
