The Marty Lounge>I want to show you my newest sports card...

The sports card market is absolutely booming right now. I sold off enough of my other stuff to buy this. There are only 10 of them. It is indescribably beautiful.

Here's a few of the pics--it's a royal pain to get my phone to actually email every picture to myself, so I'll upload the rest if anybody desparately has to see lmao

I had a Topps Ken Griffey Jr. card 2nd year card. Book was like $2 or something like that. It was put in a set of cards they gave the troops in Desert storm.With a desert storm stamp in gold leaf. Since most of the cards never made it back to the states, they were valuable. I think it was worth $450 or so at the time.

I remember those cards.

Iím sure hardly any of them survived that & if they did, they werenít in great condition.

From that submission, here are 4 cards I submitted for example.

I sent in an old Chiefs card, a 64 topps Smokey Stover. Needed it for a registry set and didn't want to pay $200 for a common. So I had one I thought would get psa7, but it came back 8.

I submitted (2) 2000 Topps Chrome john Abraham rookies. Again, another registry set need. I think I gave maybe 5 bucks per card. I subbed them both, thinking both would be 9. Got a 9 and a 10. sold the 9 for way too little apparently. It went within 45 minutes of listing on ebay.

I needed to add one other card to finish the submission so I added an 89 score Barry Sanders. it came back 10. I had subbed other 89 scores in the past and never got a 10. this time I did, go figure.

In any bulk submission or 6 card voucher, I never had the ceiling I did with the platinum submission. Maybe I just wised up and finally submitted cards that were solid? Who knows. I've got a bunch of mid-80s rookies that I would like to grade and would justify the signup costs. Thinking about doing it again to see if lightning strikes again.

You can even submit wax packs to have graded? What are they grading? How the pack is wrapped? Weird

All this talk has got me back into that collector feeling again. It feels good too. I loved this hobby when I was younger.

If Iím doing this right that cardís trajectory is off the charts.

4/4: $810
4/7: $1075
5/4: $1300
5/19: $850
6/4: $1750

You got a helluva deal. You should have paid $1500 for it. Congratulations!

You should see what the Chipper Jones will bring in high grade.

Yep, graded packs and even tickets are a big deal.

I browsed through a few cards in the first box I opened in the closet. Ebay prices are all over the place. An old Jordan Skylights card with the same grades are priced from $100 to $1,000. Topps refractor same grades priced from $1,500 to $25k.

Are people just throwing shit at the wall and hoping someone buys on the spike?

I havenít submitted one not have I really been interested in them. Grading is same as a card. They put a numerical grade on it for condition, which also includes (what I assume is) a guarantee of integrity against having been searched and resealed.

Some graded packs go for serious cheddar.

Iím not interested in them either but itís interesting they judge a pack by its appearance. I could careless about a packís look. I can see verifying it though.

Found another crazy card.
