Wemby ROY Commemorative Coin /5000

Post image 1

I’m a sucker for these kinds of things - but I grabbed one of those Wemby Rookie of the Year commemorative coins. They made 5,000 of them, so it’s not necessarily rare, buuut, I do also have the LeBron rookie Hummer, the Kevin Durant rookie matchbox and Jordan rookie Starting Lineup…. So it’ll go nice next to those!

Kiki Rice cards about to go 📈📈📈??

Post image 1

I swear I’m not trying to pump my own bags, as they say (I’m not selling any!!) but its possible that Kiki Rice of UCLA could see her card market explode. Let me explain why I’m keeping an eye on it…

In her first two games of the tourney she’s led UCLA in scoring (a very good team, btw) and had 24 points in the round of 32 leading UCLA to a comeback win over Creighton.

IF (big if) UCLA, the number 2 seed and at one point the top team in the country, makes a run and wins the tournament they will need her to be the massive talent that she is in order to (theoretically) beat Angel Reese and LSU, then Caitlin Clark and Iowa, then JuJu Watkins and USC in the Final Four, THEN an undefeated South Carolina team in the finals.

Just an insane schedule ahead - again, theoretically since Iowa/USC/SC could technically lose along the way.

IF that happens for UCLA then she might become the biggest name in the sport (ok, biggest non-Caitlin Clark).

Observation: Are people trading more than buying?

I have no data to back this up but I have a thesis that since everyone went all-in on collecting over the last 3+ years that we’ve (myself included) amassed a ton of cards that we don’t PC that we’re trying to move…in bulk?…and the quickest way to do so is to trade: 5 cards out (that you don’t PC) for one card (that you do).

Thus: trades have gone up up up.

Has anyone noticed trades are going UP in the hobby? Don’t get me wrong, I love trading - a lot. But I feel like more and more I’m getting messages for stuff I have for sale asking if I’ll accept trades instead.

Is it happening more and more? Just an observation, curious if anyone else is seeing it as well…

GPK x Topps MLB coming Tuesday

This is always one of my favorite sets each year. Anyone else collect? Did anyone else buy way too many J-Rod GPK rookies and, oops, Wander Franco‘s…eeeek.

The first Charlie Woods card hits the market

Post image 1

SI Kids has a Charlie Woods card - Tiger Woods son - in this month‘s edition. Hard to know what he’ll become but I know there’s a bunch of SI Kids card collectors on here.

There’s some iconic ones from the past, including his dad’s card, LeBron’s high school card, Wemby’s first card, Simone Biles, Serena Williams, etc.

Tough to grade with the perforations and terrible centering, but love this collection nonetheless.
