Re: Edge of the World, Signed Alphas, Beta APs, and more coming

Hey Jeff,

Looking for the last couple cards below to complete a signed Alpha set. NM/M preferred but anything to fill a hole would be helpful. Give me a shout if you have any.

Re: FIVE MORE CARDS!

I had shot him a FB message but had not gotten a reply as of yet. I'll try him directly now as I did not have an email address until you posted his link.

Thanks,

Sigs look legit to my eye. Guessing just variation from a different signing period that is seen from many artists.

Boxes on Ebay have been selling in the $5000+ range so I would not hesitate long before grabbing them all!

While the link to report the auction (and there are THOUSANDS like it) is there for the using, you are just wasting your time. Since Ebay now gives users free listings every month, you can bet that the auction will be back up with the same title almost as fast as they take it down, if they even both...

I do not have any pictures of the cards yet so I'll let the image below express my current state of mind for having recently purchased Tim Winkler's PSA Alpha set! He took the time to fly the set to Seattle and hand deliver and I was so ungracious in that I was not able to get him a fresh caught sal...

I feel for you Gary! This is exactly why I limited myself to just collecting the Alpha set as trying to do others would take all my time (and $$$$).

A few cards back from the graders this week!

Some nice results, especially the signed cards that I had been siting on since '95 when I bought them in a big collection. PSA would never grade them and I just got around to sending them to BGS/JSA. Very stoked about the Gauntlet of Might :D https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5582/14973904822_08ee251ab...

For Alpha you'll get a small premium over most raw cards for PSA/BGS 8 or 8.5 but the real bump in price starts with 9's and goes up substantially for BGS 9.5 / PSA 10's.

Margins seem to be much tighter on Beta and other sets where you need to get 9.5/10 to see the decent jump in price.
