Good Wood

The most recent product release of 2012 Panini National Treasures Baseball has yielded 10 different cards with Hank Greenberg and his often used bat displayed on it. I have bought one card which should be arriving on Monday (3/11) so I will put that up when the time comes. I'm not into the different color variations of a card (although I am guilty with 2007 Premier baseball), so I will try to acquire as many as I can.

Except this went up for auction the other day.

That shit ain't fair.  A B/O (best offer) was hit for under $1,299. only numbered to 5. I have a realistic chance at 8 of the other cards that Greenberg is featured on, but this one, and the bat knob card that is said to exist are way too far out of my price range.


On Friday I received a card that has long been on my want-list.

It's numbered to only 25, from 2002 Fleer Platinum and it cost me far less than what I've seen them go for in the past at $59. I also didn't have much competition in terms of other people bidding on this one.

I guess patience really is a virtue. According to the 2011 Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards these cards are not priced due to scarcity. And I landed mine for a healthy $59. Needless to say I am incredibly pleased with this buy.

In fact, there is a similar card that is on eBay right now for a BIN (Buy It Now) of $180.

2002 Fleer Platinum Cornerstones Hank Greenberg Jimmie Foxx Dual Bat 25/25

This ranks as my second card that features both Jimmie Foxx and Hank Greenberg, the first being

Remember to check back on Monday/Tuesday when I reveal which bat card I got from 2012 National Treasure.

Until then.
