Yesterday I discussed passing up a grail item due to the large sum of money it went for.
For every 1,000 listings of 2020 and 2021 Topps Heritage cards (and all the parallels that coincide with it) there is maybe 5 listings for a 2009 Upper Deck SP Authentic card of Cutch.
As of today there are ZERO base cards of the SP Authentic card available for sale via an eBay auction.
The fairly recent release of 2021 Topps Heritage yields nearly 100 card listings for McCutchen.
I don't have to spend my money and time searching for those right now, they'll be readily available for bulk purchase on COMC in the months to come.
I would rather focus my efforts on the cards that don't pop up too often.
Back in February one of the rarest Cutch rookies appeared for sale from a company no longer attached to baseball cards.
I pulled the trigger.
2009 Upper Deck SP Authentic offered a simple design with a limited number of parallels to chase for each card in the 200 card set.
I already owned the base, gold, and copper versions of this card. The next rarest was the silver limited to 59 copies.
I can cross that silver off the need list.
How do the images look with the camera phone scanner?
