David, the update gold tatis are selling way above the 30.00 bv. Might want to sell yours while irons hot.

Basic Topps flagship set building is getting way out of my league. I couldn't even find a Series 2 Blaster box in my area. I'm betting same for the update set and the complete Topps set in a few months.

I’ve pre ordered some team sets of update on eBay. Just in case I can’t find any.

What about Soto? I have two of this 2018 Topps Update gold RC Juan Soto US300? Best regards, David

Didn’t check before I left the house for the weekend. Was at 300.00 If you decide to move 1 of the 2 keep me in mind.

I actually had a Bench member PM me this week saying "It was refreshing to trade with someone not after Trout, Tatis etc". Yeah, that would pretty much dexcribe my trading habits to a T.

I too am staying happy in my vintage bubble. When it comes to sports cards I follow 2 rules: 1 ) Don't buy retail and 2)always take the path of least resistance. When everyone was chasing Mantle, i was chasing Mays. When the hobby was all about baseball, I was all about football and basketball . When collectors were going for Vlad Jr. I was going for Vlad Sr. (you know the ACTUAL HOF member!). You get a lot more for your money that way and all this "hot" stuff always cools down. Don't ever chase the market since you'll get bitten 99% of the time in the end.

I’ve got his rookie debut gold. David, if you decide to trade rather than sell, I’d be interested. Would love to add it to my Acuna gold that I won in your Saturday contest two years ago.

Took me a bit to figure it out, but think I am on the right path now!! If wax prices stay high, will just stick with buying sets off of ebay - did it for series II and while I missed actually breaking wax, less clutter to deal with and saved about $400.
