Broken home

My parents are divorced. They have been that way for over a decade. I was fortunate enough to live through my teen years in a true family setting. My youngest brother was not as fortunate. After suffering a major leg injury playing basketball on the varsity team (as a Freshman mind you) my family began to seperate. It makes the holidays very hard now.

I began this new blog to share more about myself and what makes my super collecting habits tick.

Right around the holiday season, I started to make arrangements with someone looking to sell off their Cutch PC. One particular card I was interested in was a 2005 Bowman Sterling (his draft year) Black Refractor Autograph Jersey card.  The card is already slabbed as a 9.5 with nice Sub Grades and a 10 autograph.

Only 25 of these exist.

The ones that have been slabbed 9.5/10s typically sell for $600.

I was able to get this for a small fraction of the price.

The reason?

It has a broken home.

The slab has been absolutely crushed
I am not sure if I resubmit the card it will receive the same grades.
I hope you all have a blessed day.


  1. I'm not 100% sure but I believe Beckett will just re-slab it for you for whatever fee they charge (5, 6, 8 bucks, something like that).

    1. That's great news, but I have never submitted to them before. Lmk if you get any more information for me. Thanks amigo.
