While not as spectacular as what some others have posted, I did get a lot of 8th series stickers in and got these two cards in the bunch:

Loren, that is one of my favorite titles from series 8 (if not from the whole series).  Something about that classic bucket screams the 70's and childhood to me.

Brad, why dont you just eliminate the color option all together,it makes no difference to me 1 way or the other.It;s very clear to me the crybabies that hangout here are never going to go away.

It's there to use it use it to benefit the post. Don't use yellow or pink since it's tough to see. Why would I get rid of it? That makes no sense at all. I think sometimes people make irrational posts. It could be the heat of the moment but sometimes take a step back and look what you are actually posting. Is it beneficial or just trying to make yourself heard. Nobody has to use the colors bt it might help someone to express their feelings better. It's all about options and not being restricted to express your opinion. No need to do away with it. Just use it casually.

I picked up a lot of 1st & 16th PSA's and this one is sweet.
I usually bust them outta the cases but I'm not sure i have the heart to open this one,it may be 4 sale and I'll hunt for another one i think.

I thought of collecting PSA's just to be sure of the quality. Then bust 'em open because I hate those big ugly chunks of plastic. Is that what you do?

I have broken out anything below 7, and figure I'll get a low grade space filler for my album pages of my 7's & up.

Did anyone order the uncut BC Cola promo uncut sheet? I did and I received the package moments ago but the contents don't equate with the invoice. They sent me another old school uncut sheet instead. I don't know if I'll have to but I should not have to pay for shipping to send it back due to their error. Am I right?

I won this auction. The cards look really sharp in the pics. The dull looks like a restick but overall they all look pretty decent.

Those are fun batches to win........especially if you don't know all of the titles because you may get lucky.  Let me know if you find any series 4-6 glossys!

you sure are a gambling man, I like your style!  These do look nice, my main interest was the box but then I realized it was torn in half but it is a nice throw in to the lot eh?

I love these lots. Overall the cards lookg pretty good from the pics. I have gambled before and have gotten lucky and burned so it could go either way. I once got a lot similar to this and it had all the tough ones mixed in like bum,choke,spit, & a couple grime heavies. You just never know. If it's a full run of 2-11 I got a good deal. Soon find out.

I remember there was an item a couple years ago I really wanted so I planned to snipe it.  I had double windows open so I could watch the clock tick down and had my bid typed in ready to go, so I just needed to hit the "bid button".  I waited until just under 10 seconds, hit the bid button, and I was then prompted to the sign in link!!  That really sucked!

I picked up some series 1 OPCs, I now have stack of whiteback and tanback series 1 OPCs.  Mostly VG/EX, anyone have any idea of market value on these?

I figure $10 each for tans and $15 each for whites, but those are solid NM prices so they should be adjusted down for condition.
