Low numbered Palmer combo

Picked up this sweet card a while back. But had to share it with you all!

Nice orange relic (O’s relics that are orange equals pure awesomeness) with a well placed sticker autograph. To top things off, it’s pretty rare numbered to only 10 copies!

Hope you are enjoying seeing how my collection is growing.

As I worked my way back into the blogging world, I have found a bunch of cards that I had forgotten about. Also a bunch that never got posted.

So to start, I have come across my 10th Jim Palmer printing plate. Which is my 11th Palmer 1/1!

Card Value

One of the things I never really understood while collecting is, what gives a card monetary value. I mean its just a piece of cardboard with a picture on it. There does not really seem to be much background information on how the price is calculated. For example, while looking through comc.com, I saw a Brooks Robinson card I own and was shocked at the “value” and the sale price.

It is a 2011 Topps Heritage 62 Mint Coins #BR.

Now the card I have is very similar to the one listed, yet it is an error card. Here is the original post.

I mean I always find the pricing/ value of cards very interesting. My buddy over at Joe Average Card Collecting Blog wrote a great post on the subject of the 1990s card values, check it out!

However, the main reason I collect is not to turn a profit, but to have an incredible collection to share with my sons and pass along to them. Hopefully when they get the collection, they will want to continue collecting.

A nice dual relic

I have been adding to the Palmer collection pretty regularly, so why stop!

The new card is really nice! Not only does it contain a Palmer relic, it also contains a Joe Morgan relic as well, not to mention that is numbered to just 25.

Also the guy I got it from was nice enough to leave the price tag on. Granted I paid A LOT less than the $60 tag claims.

So what do you guys think of my recent addition?

I believe I picked these 5 cards up quite a while ago on COMC. I do enjoy numbered cards, but other than the numbering these cards are boring. I guess most parallels are similar to the base card. These just don’t grab your attention.

One of my favorite Palmers

I have been adding to my collection pretty regularly, and this next card is one of my favorites. As you have seen in my past posts, I was up to 7 Jim Palmer printing plates. Well this is number 8…

This card is awesome! The overall look of the card is sweet. I would definitely prefer adding more plates like this to my collection. And the design is so much better then some of the current printing plates out there. It seems that the manufacturers now just stick a sticker on the back of the plates and throw them in packs. It appears that they (Upper Deck) spent more time on this card. Well done UD!
