Over the weekend sales of the McCutchen SP went from $60 to almost $400 in less than 24 hours. It was absolutely insane to see the hype and frenzy that surrounded that card all due to ESPN, Cutch, and Dick Allen's tweets.
I never put much into social media influencers and thought it was all a scam, but damn if I didn't see something like it first hand.
The average price of the cards at their highest selling point was almost $275.
Similar pricing spikes occurred around Memorial Day for the Project 2020 cards.
I refused to pay over $200 and certainly not $275 for a Short Print photo variant
Rather than use that money to be caught up in the here and now, I used it to only buy Cutch cards I needed from COMC, eBay, sportlots, and artist sites.
Over the course of the next week (I'm guessing) I will show off the cards and items I bought during that 24 hour frenzy.
Some of them I have been after for a LOOOOOONG TIME. I will provide screenshots of the receipts too.
One of the cards is a unicorn I've been chasing for 7 years!
Now let me preface and say that I overpaid for some of these cards. This isn't how I normally collect, but I wanted the challenge to be genuine and only purchase cards over the weekend of the frenzy.
The first batch came today and it's a pair of 2020 Topps Series 2 parallels.
Speaking of powder blue uniforms, I also got the vintage stock and logo parallel.
This parallel is numbered to only 99 copies.
First 2 cards
