Final Maildays of 2016

So I waited until almost everything came in before I posted my last Mailday of 2016. So here's what I got!

96-97 Fleer Total O Michael Jordan BGS 9.5

Don't have many, but this a nice card to pickup before the end of 2016! MJ's are expensive as hell, but I really like the look of this one and it being graded 9.5 to boot is very nice!

15-16 Immaculate Kyrie Irving Patch/Auto #15/60

Actually won this during Kyrie's heroics in the 4th quarter of the Christmas Day game against the Warriors. Nice patch, on card auto, awesome card!

2016 Strata Signatures Ken Griffey Jr. #34/35

Sooooooo stoked I got this in Friday! It was the redemption I pulled from my horrible Strata break last month.  This card is AMAZING looking and is by far one of the best looking cards I own.

15-16 Gala Starring Role Signatures Anfernee Hardaway #30/50

A sweet on card auto of my favorite basketball, Penny Hardaway

96-97 Flair Showcase Row 0 Allen Iverson RC

Flair Showcase Parallels are some of my absolute favorite looking cards so when I saw this AI I had to get it

2008-09 Topps Chrome Russell Westbrook RC

Russell Westbrook is my favorite NBA Player in today's NBA. This guy is unbelievable and is putting eye popping numbers, triple doubles almost every game. As expected, it means his stuff is SUPER EXPENSIVE, but I couldn't resist. I had to get his Topps Chrome Rookie Card to add to my collection. Chrome is always a favorite of mine and even as high as it's gone to, I think it has even more room to grow as Russ continues to be a one man wrecking crew this season.

15-16 Immaculate Sneaker Swatches Karl Anthony Towns #37/39

I love Shoe cards and already have the Penny and Grant Hill in this set. Decided to add KAT as well.

15-16 Prizm Gold Prizm Russell Westbrook #4/10 BGS 9.5

I love Gold Prizms and Russ is my guy, there is no way I wasn't going to win this card. Being graded 9.5 is an added bonus as well.

16/17 Prizm First Step Gold Prizm #6/10 Russell Westbrook

Another Gold Prizm of Russ

2016 Prime Signatures Auto/Patch Ezekiel Elliott #10/15

Being a HUGE Cowboys fan, there was no way I was going to let the year go by without adding a nice Zeke to my collection. Numbered to 15, absolutely love the look of this card. It's a sticker auto..but it works on this card, plus I love the patch on it. Hoping the Cowboys do big things in the playoffs this year!

2015 Panini Prizm Rookie Autographs Green Prizm Jameis Winston RC #4/50 BGS 9.5

Another guy I had been wanting to add an autograph rookie card of Jameis Winston. He was on my fantasy team this year so I saw a lot of his games and he's really developing into a pretty solid QB in only his second year. Again, I love Prizm, and this Green Parallel numbered to 50 was a no brainer to me. Again, the grade is cool.

So all the base rookie cards in Prizm Football have a refractor finish which really make them stand out. Another one of those "have to have" cards for me.

And that'll finish off 2016! Happy New Year's to everyone and here's to a great 2017!


  1. Wowza! Awesome cards. Happy New Year!

    1. Holy crap. After reading about Russell Westbrook in your post, I decided to see what his 2008/2009 Topps Signature autographs were selling for. They sell for around 2 bills. That's crazy! I built that autograph set back in the day... and Westbrook was one of the lowest numbered cards in the set, so even though I'm surprised... I'm not that surprised.

    2. Yeah...Russ stuff is on FIRE right now
