I've been absolutely roasted in some Facebook Groups but owning non-rookie base cards that are PSA 10s.
The haters say things like...
"How dare someone ever get a non-rookie card graded?"
"That's the reason why the backlog is so long"
"I hope your entire card collection goes up in flames because you are the reason why the hobby sucks now!"
You think I'm exaggerating? Go join a Facebook Group or Subreddit as ask a question. See how "friendly," people are. 🙂
Anyway, I re-entered the hobby this year with the strong belief that as an adult... (enter Mike Gundy "I'm a man... I'm 40!" yelling here) ... we can all do what we want to make us happy.
It is after all, a hobby.
So, get whatever cards you want graded. Be positive, spread joy, etc.
Now, with that disclaimer out of the way, I can talk about two cards that I acquired over the last year, and am now selling at https://nooffseason.com.
Both of these cards are available for WAY LESS than current eBay Buy Now listings and even WAY LESS than recent sales comps.
Well, it's not because Giannis ISN'T on the way to his first ever NBA Championship.
It's because I want sports card collectors and investors to have profit margin.
I'm creating a community at https://nooffseason.com/join that is made of of collectors and investors who want the lowest prices, free shipping, and a free graded card at the end of the year.
Despite the naysayers, these two cards have generated a ton of interest and offers over the last few days, and are sure to go soon.
Pick them up now while you can.
Thanks for watching and happy collecting!
