eTopps Football Tracker 12/30

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.

Just trying to catch up on some posts while my attention was with The Lost Collector Jr. I missed this one, but that Mantle is sweet!
