Oh no Miyamoto, his is destroyed-o

Big card lot buys can be great for the variety in cards, but can also have some damaged cards depending on how they were stored. As a general rule, I only buy bulk lots of cards where I can tell they have been treated fairly from a storage standpoint.

The worst infraction that I see on a regular basis is people who wrap cards with elastic bands. I hurt a little seeing this, with the cards screaming not to be damaged on the sides. I prefer normal storage boxes of course, and will almost never go for bins with cards just thrown in. It's finding that middle ground of someone with a bunch of cards they don't care for anymore, are letting go of for a fair price, and have at least cared enough to try to ensure they are not damaged.


Since we are talking condition, a slight ding on one corner, but a keeper still - nothing you wouldn't expect for general keeping. I'd still obviously prefer pristine, but I can accept these smallest of knicks.


Yeah - just a bit of damage multiple hard folds right across the centre of the card. A shame given it is "oddball" to me as I don't collect soccer, but I think I'll get over it.

The rest

Another add for this slowly building set.


Yeah, so out of all the 200-08 Upper Deck hockey cards, only the Saku was new for me, a whole lot more dupes though.
