    They look vaguely familiar but I had no idea they were so valuable. Those prices are crazy.

    This is what I found out about them:

    I am, however I don’t know how he made his fortune or if he actually bet on Holm. He does come off as a super douche though.

    I honestly would just get them slabbed by PSA or BGS as the autograph being authentic and that’s only if you ever plan on selling them. In person autographs go for hardly anything without any type of authentication. As for the cost it depends on the fighter. Someone who’s been dead forever like a Rocky Marciano is going to cost a lot more than a living fighter who signs a lot like say a Shane Mosley. In this instance probably $30 for Mosley and $200 for Marciano to get them authenticated.

    Wow. It costs that much for authentication? In that case, I may just a few done. Thanks for the info.

    I collected a lot as a teenager and am now getting into ufc cards. Ken Griffey jr was the guy I collected a lot but doubt my cards are worth anything in the condition they’re in now.

    That story always cracks me up but Olerud revealed it was not true at all that they both knew each other well while on the mets lol

    I remember those Diamond Kings cards at the time they were popular I had a few of those I had Dave Winfield but thats like 4 bucks now probably its crazy how those older cards dropped in value from so many duplicates, these new cards cost more cause of the rarity like some of them are only 1 of 50, or 1 of 10 made.

    Oh yeah a lot of the stuff from the late 80s to mid 90s is pretty much fire kindling lol but I think some stuff is solid from that era. I think the Griffey jr rookies are still somewhat valuable depending on condition just from nostalgia alone. The thing that made things like vintage cards and comics valuable in the first place is that they were seen as valueless and expendable at one point thus people tossing them out making them scarce. In the junk wax era everyone had multiples of every great players card and held them in mint condition. The modern cards are interesting I think it’s built in safeguards from the “junk wax era” by making artificially rare cards like a 1/50, 1/10, 1/1 etc (bought a 5/10 Cain Velasquez auto recently).

    yup the Junk wax era it was easy as hell to get multiples of top rookie cards, I remember I got like 2 Dieon Sanders rookies in one pack of topps, And then I would buy them and eat the bubble gum, we used to toss them like they were nothing, so many duplicates. I had like 7 of the same Daryl Strawberry too.

    The modern Cards got it right, making the card rare pulls the value up super high.

    But to counter tht they charge hundreds for a box, sometimes thousands.

    If I ever became a millionaire Id probably buy up those modern boxes and break them on Youtube, id be like a kid in a candy store and Id put them in protective cases and break them only with clean gloves on and probably do some giveaways for fun of some cards.

    @StewDogg11 @TeTe

    Jaspys in Hermosa Beach, California had an awesome pull from 2,500 box break.


    Another sports card collector just hit the JACKPOT -- pulling a rare 1-of-1 LeBron James jersey card ... and he's already getting some huge offers to sell!

    It all went down Thursday night at Jaspy's Case Breaks card shop in Hermosa Beach, CA -- which was hosting a "live break" of a box of 2019-20 Panini Immaculate Premium Edition cards.
