They just feel better than anything I have seen yet. I am slowly going to get my HOFer PC collection graded. Thinking 10-20 cards every three months or so I am just trying to get better knowledge on this part of the hobby.

Not really looking to sell, just since they are PC and my HOFer PC goal of 1 RC and 1 Auto, I want to constantly improve my collection if I can. For example, I have a BGS 9.5 Brett Favre RC. I just sent 5 more in for grading that I think are clean. If 1 comes back 10, that's going in the PC the rest will be sold. I have a Walter Payton BGS 6.5, so in my collection notes, I would be ecstatic t otrade for a 7 or better and then the 6.5 will go out for trade/sale. First goal, have every HOFer RC, second goal, slowly work my way up on them so they are all 8.5 or better. At the end of the day (actually probably the end of a couple decades) I should have a pretty impressive HOFer collection.
