Nice hit, congrats!  It sounds like those are harder to spot, you would think they would make a 1/1 stick out from the other cards.

To be honest, if I hadnít checked the odds I wouldnít have known there was a glossy variant. It may have been trashed.

After work last night I bought two blasters of 2019 Ginter. At first glance the break itself was pretty lackluster. One box yielded a Chris Taylor jersey card. The other, not so much....the only notable highlight was a damaged black border mini in one pack. I decided to go through the rest in the morning looking for any short prints.

I went through the minis first this morning - nothing significant apart from a black border Hank Aaron and a base Griffey mini. Going through the base cards I noticed one seemed different....kinda glossy. I first looked at the odds on the blaster and noticed glossies were 1 in 9,000+ packs. Then I turn the card over and see the 1/1 stamp.

Last night I overlooked a Roger Maris base glossy 1/1!! For anyone interested it likely will be for trade. Iíll post a pic later today.

TCC member 5toosweet (Abel) has passed away after battling cancer.

I donít know all the details, but just saw it on his Facebook page. I believe he had already beaten cancer once or twice before.

RIP Abel. sad.gif

ESo I recently found out that one of TCCís very own members, dolphin_dreamer, has sketch cards in some of Toppsí new Star Wars products. After seeing her post on Facebook about some of her Artist Proofs, I had to inquire about a couple.

Today these two came in (pics attached, posting from my phone). She also included a personalized Yoda sketch.

They look absolutely amazing in person. aceecards, you should be a very proud dad!! Thank you Madison.

I remember 2017 Bowman Platinum being hard to find, so I didnít hesitate to pick up a couple packs of 2018 last night. I was happy with the results!

Pack 2:

- Kacy Clemens green /99

Pack 1:

- Platinum Cuts Alex Verdugo autograph 17/25

Hello folks! As most of you know Iíve been a collector for a long time (25 years or so). However, Iíve never sent a card off for grading.

One of my prized baseball card possessions is my 2011 Topps Update #175 Mike Trout RC. As the card continues to rise in value Iíve made the decision to get it graded, especially since Topps is beginning to make ďreprintsĒ now. I want to go through PSA. For those with experience with the grading process, whatís the simplest (and safest) way to send it off?
