My Collecting Accomplishment: Prestigious Premieres Autograph

I probably finished this set off six weeks ago when I grabbed the CJ MCollum card on Ebay but because the COMC cards were not in my possession, I didn’t get custody of all of the cards until Thursday.

Hardest cards to find: Victor Oladipo & Ben McLemore. Ponied up $11 for the McLemore without blinking because I didn’t see it for sale anywhere (Beckett, Ebay, SportLots, COMC). I grabbed that card probably an hour after it was posted on COMC and I would’ve paid more but am thankful that I didn’t. Cody Zeller gets an honorable mention here.
Card that I didn’t appreciate when I pulled it: Giannis. Granted it was with a case I bought myself for graduating college but I would have never bought it and thus never completed the set if I didn’t pull it.
Card that I thought I had because it was everywhere for cheap, but I didn’t realize it until the end: Tony Snell
Most I paid for a single card: $32 for C.J. McCollum. I hope that his career trajectory continues and validates the price.

I probably spent more money than I should have on a horrendous rookies class but I don’t regret it. 90% of it was funded from Swagbucks anyway. I don’t regret it because completing the set feels amazing, especially because I pictures myself doing something like this again. This was the only autograph set from the set that I had a realistic chance of completing so I focused on it. I might have 2 more tricks up my sleeve for my Prestige set so hopefully I have more to come; at least one definite.
