While everyone was talking about Bowman baseball, I feel like collectors in the know was busy buying all of Threads. I went out of my way, albeit not too much out of my way, to find a box and couldn’t. Thankfully Target.com had it, and said that it was sold out in every store.
At $19.99 you get an oversized jersey card, and a pack of cards.
I got excited when I saw Jazz but it was Tony Bradley and not Donovan Mitchell. Still a fun rip regardless.
When I went to pick up this haul, a nostalgic tear came to my eyes. I have been attacking the bid board at Northridge Sports Collectibles for the past 2 years because it was so close to my University. This semester was my last as I have officially earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Communication Studies from California State University Northridge. Unless I get a job or move close by, I probably won’t be going there as much.
Knowing this was potentially my last visit, I loaded up – probably not my last, I will just be infrequent.
The haul for $14:
Wade Boggs 1986 slabbed by Fanatics
Markel Brown Panini Threads auto
Stephon Marbury & Allan Houston dual warm ups
Kevin Garnett & Sam Cassell dual warm ups
Kendall Marshall Prestige autograph
Paul Lo Duca Prizm autograph
Isiah Thomas autograph from NFL Pro Line 1992
Laken Tomlinson Contenders autograph
Cobi Hamilton Magic autograph
Jeff Fuller Contenders autograph
Tony Boselli autograph
Probably a bit more than I should’ve paid but I wanted to go out with a lot. My favorite and possibly favorite card that I got all year is the Isiah Thomas autograph. I love how it’s an NBA Hall of Famer in an early NFL set. I come away with another Boselli autograph from the bid board.
In all this is the perfect way to go out as I came away with a little of everything. A prospect autograph in Markel Brown, a few autographs who are nobodies in Fuller and Hamilton, a Dodgers autograph in Lo Duca, and some great dual cards. If you have read past Bid Board Finds segments, this has almost everything that I have encountered; very fitting.
