I will use this thread to share my collecting and prospecting interest; Pulls and deals I consider noteworthy be it huge or small. I thought I would start off with two Beckett Hot List RCs I acquired Saturday at our local show here @ Embassy Suites.


First up, a trade...I gave up Kawhi Leonard BGS 9.5 Select Gold Prizm Hot RC #/10 for this.....

I agree. I like the clock.

Picked this one up from shop owner of my LCS. It is a crisp clean card with a simple enough design that has its own flair.

Huge fan of Maddux. Too bad the picture cuts off the top of everyone's head. Still not a bad looking card, but I prefer the 90's/early 00's auto designs, and all were on-card!

I'm glad the hat is cut off as Panini does not have an MLB logo license.

Chasing Kris Bryant was sometimes futile but the residual pulls from busting chrome still was not bad from my jumbo and regular boxes I busted of 2014, 2015 bowman and bowman chrome products.

Here is just one prime example of a keeper sweet pull that Bluejay fans can appreciate.

Orange Refractor Auto RC #/25 ( ready for BGS grading)!!!

Devon Travis was my sleeper frontrunner for AL ROY until injury sidelined him a bit. When healthy this RC helped my daily fantasy lineup stats tremendously. this kid is the real deal and should be back to all systems go and then some after the break. Pretty sure most bluejay collectors can't wait to see him pictured in his current team uni.

Sweet looking card. Nice crisp signature. I bet refractor autos grade pretty tough. Hope you get the 9.5!

2009 WBC Prospect RC Blue Refractor #/150 !! (another BGS potential candidate)


Who is Hector Olivera?.....


The Los Angeles Dodgers have signed Cuban infielder Hector Olivera to a six-year contract worth $62.5 million ohmy.gif . He has the tools. A late bloomer IMO at age 30. I hope he can stay healthy enough to get the call. A hamstring tweak prevented possible call up before all-star break

Initially posted this card ungraded in the first post up top..the strange history of this card is as follows: Previous owner had this card raw graded..it was originally sleeved @ 8.5 card/10 Auto......I acquire it and resubmit for raw grading see below.

I typically use 10 day turnaround service (2 weeks). The longer wait you choose the cheaper the price.


However this one below took longer as I wanted the auto authenticated by JSA in New Jersey first. Then shipped back to Dallas for grading and slabbing. Lesson learned is I will only Authenticate and slab IPs in the future for speed of service like previously done.














user posted image
2010 Mike Trout RC auto obtained during Spring training by a local friend. I sent this card in to BGS/JSA for the works.. I got it back yesterday, too long turnaround IMO.




Now I will continue to use JSA authentication and slabbing only; the turnaround is acceptable and the cards I submit are NRMT or better in general anyway. See below..

what does that cost ken?

I am so peeved. They charged me $68 of which $10 for $1000 insurance for the Trout which I never freaking asked for $1000 worth of insurance. The card was graded 10. centering, 9.5 corners, 9.5 edges, 6.5 surface by BGS for a dust spot that I forgot to wipe off!! I considered busting it open wiping it down and sending it back for 10/10 grades. But I will get $450 or better as is anyway for the Trout.


The Baugh came back quicker and cost $ 30 I believe. I sent Trout in after the nice experience I had with JSA and the Baugh card.
