You bastards make me sick always pulling Cam autos or Zuck Fod pulling Luck autos..lol

I guarantee if I go buy a hobby box my best pull will be a Brian Quick auto.


Trust me, I've had more than enough of my share of dud boxes, getting something like this Cam every so often is just the card world paying me back for all the crappy boxes I've had.

The funny thing is that as great as the hits like that are, they still cost me a bit of money as that's a hit that I would normally sell if it wasn't Cam. So by keeping it, I'm out the $70 for the box, and kinda also out the $125-150 that I would be getting if I sold the card

But I'm good with it on this one seeing as the 2011 Silhouettes are my favorite set of all time, that just became my favorite self pulled card ever, and that might not ever be beaten. I'd need a Panthers 1/1 or a real nice Stewart auto to beat it

No kidding

Me pulling those Cam's was the card gods only slightly paying me back for all the bad boxes I've opened. Not counting my 2011 Crown breaks, because for whatever reason I can't seem to lose on those, I probably have 1 good box break for every 4 or 5 bad ones, and that might be a generous guess.

Hell, even when I pulled that Cam auto, I also busted a box of 2012 Magic and my best card was a Coby Fleener base auto, hahaha

WOW

Just checked the tracking, and it looks like the second one might have gotten here way faster than I expected and will be getting it tomorrow as well, fingers crossed that I get lucky and it shows up tomorrow as well.

It would make a mailday that I know for a fact I would NEVER be able to top no matter what. The combination of these two cards showing up on the same day would be absolutely epic

The sad part is that the first was paid for at like 2 in the afternoon on Tuesday, the second was paid for at like 11 PM on Friday and they might show up the same day. That first seller is just pathetic in his shipping times, can't stand it when people do that.

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.
