    Definitely looks nicer than a 5.5. Maybe I will send it for a bump some day, but I don't mind mid grade cards that look nicer. Especially when signed.

    Sometimes... depends who is also after the same card. Thanks

    Regarding the Speaker, I was the underbidder at $27k+ on the exact card in a 2017 memory lane auction. Several months ago this exact card is listed by pwcc on eBay for $100k. I know the owner (big master t206 set collector) and I texted him and offered him $40k for the Speaker. He told me he was offered double that and he passed, so he was passing on my offer; I responded he should take the $80k and run. Last night I win the Speaker for 80% my offer, and that’s with buyer’s premium. Pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered; and I own the Speaker Drum for $5k more than I missed out on it 4 years ago

    The proof really is impressive. I know someone’s gotta have an extra Red Hindu, Uzit, or Lenox ;)

    Frustrating as hell but you had a happy ending on it. Cards don’t always go up in price when there’s a thinner market due to the higher dollar figure. That’s a great card and I was one of the underbidders. I can’t imagine a much better Drum card to have.

    Very cool, very rare Jackson. I'm actually 2/3 of the way through completion of this set so feel free to sell me some and I'll overpay as I did for this one.

    I like this Wajo due to the historical context of the card.

    And then some rookie cards:

    Jeff-Love that Al Weiss rookie. He was one of my favorites when he was with the Mets. 😉

    Now that is one hell of an F-ing card! But hardly as nice (or valuable) as a magazine cut out of Ruth!
