Carolina Panther card/memorbilla/auto's collectors...

Thanks man, you don't know the half of it

I had heard from everyone that pictures don't do them justice, and while I believed them, never fully understood it until I got it. It's absurdly amazing in person, the way all the light reflects around the card is beautiful.

Easily the best card in my Panthers collection now, but the Stewart Silhouette might still be my favorite

I think if I were to rank my 5 favorite Panthers card cards right now it would go like this

1. Stewart Silhouette

2. Stewart Prizm Finite 1/1

3. Cam Silhouette (pulled myself)

4. Cam Gold Standard (pulled myself)

5. Stewart Gold Standard 1/1

If I didn't limit it to my Panthers though, the AP TP Red Ink would be either #3 or #4, tough call, it's also by far and away the best overall card that I own, that's not even a question.

and because I do love that card so much and it's the best card I've ever personally pulled, I think I'm going to show it off in here one more time, hahahaha

I'll give you $5 for that Peterson auto. Man just tore his ACL, no way he can come back from that, just look at kijana carter (sp).

Ps I love beer.

That card has quite a history/story behind it

First of all, it was sitting in a box of 2007 Jumbo in a card stores warehouse for 5 years and they had just cleaned out the warehouse of old inventory and they just wanted to clear it out quick so they had packs at $6.

The night before I pulled it I won $150 at the casino, the next day on my way to the golf course I stopped at the card store to spend that money on some boxes, don't remember what I bought, but I spent all 150 and didn't get anything good, scrub autos, wasn't happy. As I was walking out the store I remembered that I wanted to have some singles for tips at the course, I had a $10 bill so I decided to do a pack of the 2007 Jumbo for the hell of it since it was like 50 cards I'd get to flip through.

I grabbed the top pack, then decided I felt a different one would be lucky, as I was reaching in for a different one I said, "screw it, not like there's going to be anything worth pulling in this box anyways" and kept that first pack I grabbed and was off to the course.

I pulled into the parking lot and opened the pack while waiting for my friends to show up and was really happy with an AP auto. This was also like 2 months after getting back into the hobby, so I didn't know anything about red ink autos or Topps Premiere autos yet, I was just thrilled with an AP rookie auto. I obviously found out all about them that night from the card forums telling me about them.

Sold the card the next day, and after a few days I realized how stupid that was, that it was such a rare thing to have one of those cards and to know for a fact they are real since so many from that year were faked. The guy had it authenticated, graded it, and then was trying to sell it for an ungodly price (really if that set hadn't been tarnished by the fakes, it would be $1,000 card, easy).

For 8 months I watched this guy try to sell the card on the forums and was dying to get it back, and he knew it, but I was never willing to pull the trigger on it with the asking price.

Finally during the run for the record the guy messaged me and said that he was going to put it up for auction with it ending just after their last game of the year. But if I still wanted it, he'd sell it to me for what I sold it to him, plus the authentication and grading costs, with like $25 extra for him.

I knew if I passed on it then, I'd never be able to find it again, and if I did come across one, I'd never know if it was the one that I pulled, so I just bit the bullet and bought it back.

As soon as I bought it back it actually made me like AP that much more and I became a big fan of his down the stretch and rooting for him to break the record. Needless to say, unless I fall into serious problems, that card is never leaving my collection again now that I've got it back. The rarity and way that I pulled it makes it a one of a kind card to me

The only cool card I ever pulled was a Dan Marino used jersey. But then again, I would only buy those $10 boxes when I was a kid and actively collecting.

Some nice stewart stuff popped up on ebay tonight

I know, and at some good prices

I'm pissed

I know the seller a bit as I've bought like 10 Stewart cards from him a few months back when he started to sell off his collection. Those high end Chrome ones he had listed before at really high prices with no best offer's available.

Now just after I went WAY overboard on my recent purchases, even with the low prices he had them listed at having offers on them, I couldn't even consider putting in any offers when I saw them listed earlier.

I just went in and looked, the best ones all had the BIN's hit on them, almost assuredly by the main Stewart collector, we'll see in the feedback soon enough.

Oh well, I'm fine with the money I don't have going towards the ones I did pick up anyways, and the new one I have coming in was worth it too (gave up my P&P BGS 9/10 Cam Auto Patch for it). It's probably not what you'll be expecting to see either, I know you guys will be impressed and probably agree it was worth giving up that Cam auto for it, even though the Cam is worth a decent amount more than it.

I had offered to buy it, but then the two 1/1 autos popped up and I had to buy those, so I had to trade for it and the Cam was the highest end card I had that I was willing to move. I even had to throw in a few basketball cards in as well, but at that point it wasn't worth a few nice cheap basketball cards instead of this Stewart.

Don't you hate it when that happens, I've never understood why some sellers do that
