L - 1972 Wilt Chamberlain Topps that was purchased from Graybo’s. $54 to get it graded. The real was L that it took forever to come back from PSA. Action item: don’t submit cards like this to PSA, choose SGC because you can submit a vintage card with other cards.

L - Shohei Ohtani - I bought a PSA10 Topps 2028 RC (Pitching) in February for $70 plus shipping and should have sold it in June when it hit $250+. Gotta take profits when you can, and that was nearly 4X with no real jump-up in sight beyond that, even before his injury. Now, the card is back to $100-ish and who knows how/what he will play next year.
W - Fanatics Sportsbook - I created accounts for me and my wife and we each got $100 to spend on swag at The Tyrese Maxey City Edition shirt-jersey can’t get here fast enough!
B - Other than remaining very high on Tyrese Maxey, SGA, and Anthony Edwards…
Wemby will be the new attraction this season, but Devin Vassell could lead Spurs in scoring.
S - Selling football QBs as they pop - Tua 10 RC sold on Sunday during his game. Listed and selling my Herberts, Mahomes, Hurts, Burrow, and Herbert - but keep some for playoffs…

Strategy of the week: Avoiding new releases and “FOMO” pricing on Basketball cards this season.
