I think this may be the last week I run this tracker post. I haven’t bought a card at IPO in a month, and the spreadsheet is getting cumbersome. Of course I may still be irritated at the recent shipping charges news and don’t have much affection foreTopps right now. I ordered a bunch of cards to be shipped in hand and should get those in next week, so that may provide a spark. Rationally, I understand eTopps decision to change their shipping policies. I just wish I could have got the cards that were supposed to be released back on Dec 8 with my points. Oh well, no use beating a dead horse.
I did take the plunge and move my Aaron Rodgers this week. I got this beauty for it:
The Rodgers card was very cool, but it’s hard to argue with a T206 Mantle. The Rodgers will go down (and has been) in value, but the Mantle should stay pretty steady. In fact, this Mantle is one that I am receiving in hand next week, so I’m anxious to show it off in it’s real life glory.
Other than that, it was another bland week on the tracker. I may do it again next week, who knows. It kind of depends what, if anything, is offered on Monday. If team cards start, I think I will wrap it up. Last week the only card offered was Carson Palmer. Yikes. I hope there is one more week with at least one interesting player card. I’d hate to think the 2011 season was ended with Carson Palmer.
