Anticipation

I haven’t posted much in the past few days, partly because I haven’t had much to write about and partly because I’ve been eagerly anticipating the arrival of one the most sought-after boxes on my personal wantlist, 1997 SP (image from chippercards.com). 1997 SP is an extremely difficult box to find and is chock full of inserts but the main attraction is, without question, the autographs.

There are SPx Force autographs which are single-player autographs on multi-player cards designed like 1997 SPx. To show how much of a demand there is for these cards, a Todd Hollandsworth sold for $35!

The other autographed attraction is the buyback “Vintage” autographed set. Select cards from the first four years of SP (1993-96) were signed, hand-numbered, and inserted into packs with a separate certificate of authenticity. The numbering on these cards ranges from 4-367 copies! There are 32 cards in this set including Alex Rodriguez, Tony Gwynn, Jeff Bagwell, Chipper Jones, and Ken Griffey, Jr.

Now do you see why I want this box to get here already?
