RE: johnXgodfree - braves/venters maildays!
My Medlen collection isn't much at this point, he mostly has base cards. There are no GU cards to my knowledge and only two different auto's; both from TRIStar. So really the only expensive cards are the '06 Bowman DP parallels. I'm still looking for the Orange, Red, and plates. Crossing my fingers that they issue some Medlen AU/GU inserts this year!

yeah the only Medlen cards worth chasing are those '06 cards-- sucks that they were hard to find because of no value before -- now they are pricey for the good ones! I still want a nice #/50 or less of his '06 for our collection but couldn't find one I was ok with the price on sadly once they started coming out of the woodwork.

I really look forward to seeing him pitch this year - as Maddux was/is my favorite all time and seeing him out there just reminded me so much of why I liked Maddux.

I imagine after the season he had last year he should find his way into at least a few nicer sets this year! on the downside for me I don't think venters will be in much.

Nice pick ups. Sweet collection. Thanks for sharing.

Currently collecting A-Rod, Jeter, Cano, Mauer and Trout. I tend to be a fast shipper, work across the street from our post office.

RE: johnXgodfree - braves/venters maildays!
a few new ones first off:
[Image: 2000-prism-proof-big.jpg]
2000 Pacific Prism Proof Greg Maddux #/10 not quite my "first #/50 or lower 90's" maddux card I was aiming for this month. but a #/10 from 2000 is a nice consolation prize I guess!

2013 topps wrapper redemption - silver slate #/10

[Image: 2013-topps-black-plate-big.jpg]
our first 2013 printing plate.

still eyeballing the right price for a SSP from heritage then we are back up to 100% on the venters PC and eclipsed the 33% of all 1/1s owned also! (hey gotta have SOME good news packed in, during a week where he is going to go pay a visit to Dr. Andrews...sigh)

RE: johnXgodfree - braves/venters maildays!
another fun mail day today for us, many months back had some help tracking down a japanese sega card gen Jonny Venters card ended up working out a trade on another site (they post here also!)

skip forward many months...had a surprise message letting me know they had found a 2011 of his! (which I didn't even know existed!) skip forward a lil later and we had a gift in our mailbox this afternoon!

cool seeing that he has a little more "Value" in the game from one year to the next, and able to add another neat card to the collection! out of all the cards we have, these in the top five for us for our favorite venters cards. not worth much of anything or exceedingly rare, just a pleasant experience getting ahold of them!

RE: johnXgodfree - braves/venters maildays!
picked up the '13 heritage SSP refused to pay more than we did for it....so was a waiting game to find one for the right price...not a really cool card, and a forced SSP "error" just really didn't interest me much.

but being a completest and all....

Dude, stick with Venters. I don't think that Maddux guy is ever gonna amount to anything. I mean, let's face it - the Cubs let him walk.

RE: johnXgodfree - braves/venters maildays!
