Overall Thoughts: Well not much movement this week, as most of the countdown stays intact. I did have a new entry, as I won and got in a Wilt Chamberlain Flawless Patch Card that debuts at #6. That's how tough it is to crack the top 5 of the countdown. The Wilt didn't even made it. So the first card officially out is the Griffey Strata Sigs. Honestly the only real movement I can see outside of acquiring new cards, is if Lebron is able to defeat the Warriors in the Finals again. Defeating this particular Warriors team with Kevin Durant would elevate Lebron's legacy even more and might move his rookies to even more absurd prices, including the Topps Chrome. Also on the horizon, is the pending MVP award, which should go to Russell Westbrook. Other than that, baseball season is in full swing, but I don't have a lot of baseball cards, much less ones that have a chance of moving up into the countdown. Again, it'll be interesting to see how long that Brady/Kobe/Rodgers trio keeps those top 3 spots as the weeks pass by.
