I forgot to write down who won it... I used to keep track of certain cards & serial numbers & what user id from what site had the card... but lost interest doing all that extra work..
I like Bynum, but have grown tired of collecting & do not have the excess cash to spend on cardboard anymore.. right now, I am living paycheck to paycheck.. well, actually not a paycheck but a severance check I got from the Navy.. the side job I have don't make nothing..
I like the "letter" chase, but it is very tuff, since there is a low print run.. some of the other product "letters" have crazy prices... everybody thinks they can make a quick buck on low number cards or jersey # cards, because there are only 10 or less... even if the player is not very popular, they thing they can get big bucks... but it's all up to the collector & what the buyer wants to pay..
NBA50... I think $200 is a little steep for this card. If I had the money, I'd try to wheel & deal more with the seller, but I know he's not going to want to go lower.. I have to wait him out... just like the Farmar Ultimate auto/patch/10, I been waiting for the seller to go down on... seller has that card for $195.. then another seller has an Ultimate triple patch /10, that I been wanting.. (actually can care less, because it looks like a jersey, not a patch).. seller wants $75, they did want more, but have dropped it... I think I am the only Farmar Collectors still around... I do not see many of his cards selling anymore, unless for cheap!! I got 4 maybe 5 of the triple patch Farmar card.. but I been putting off my Farmar PC for now... nothing that shows up online interests me & the quad patches with Farmar are over my limit.. for a non-auto card... even if it has kobe on them... I can careless...
here is a link for my Greatest Letter Patch Chase Thread....
I do need to update some of the pictures.. as I picked an UD BLACK Farmar letter "F" last month..
