Refractors go without saying. I pretty much consume every Mitch Richmond refractor I can get my hands on and pray I hit the MJs in packs cause I can't afford them haha (have 4 MJ refractors, all were pulled). Great stuff man!

I have picked up a lot of singles of my other PC guy though, Mitch Richmond, because they can be had so much cheaper. Got a $25 Mitch for 99 cents. NEVER gonna happen with an MJ lol.

Now that he isnt, I said no more busting wax because for 1 I couldnt get MJ and 2 I couldnt get even close back to what I was paying..not even in trade value. I just felt I was spending so much money on stuff I didnt want. The cards I needed/wanted were higher end MJ cards and people dont usually trade those. So instead of spending 100 on a box and taking the risk of getting nothing, I just put that 100 towards a MJ card.

That leaves $35 left over, but to me that's money spent on entertainment, like going to the movies or something, because I enjoy it so much.
Terrible justification? Absolutely, but I do it anyway haha.

Plus if you save and save, sure you might only be able to get one expensive card every 6 months... But over time you'll eventually have a SUPER high end collection that'll make it all worth it!!

Nice card man! I think you did good on this because if you would have sent the card in to grade yourself it would of cost at least $7 dollars to get graded, if not more depending on your service.
