Slim pickins, so far

With there being so little product in 2010, I've noticed that for player collectors there aren't too many cards out there. It's good in a way because for someone like me, I am going to save more money. As noted back when the Topps, MLB and UD lawsuits and shenanigans were going on, the money I spent on Upper Deck isn't magically going to be spent on Topps. I am just going to spend more money.

But, I do love the chase. I like looking at new cars even I don't always buy them.

It's like when I went to the Ferrari dealership at the Wynn in Vegas. I wasn't buying a Ferrari. I will probably never be able to afford a Ferrari (although, I did play Power Ball last night), but I still wanted to look. I am able to appreciate the beauty of that car.

Just like I can appreciate the beauty of a Derek Jeter autograph numbered 2/2 because he wears the number 2. I can't afford that card and I will hate the person who buys it on eBay for eternity, but I still like to look.

This came up because I did a search for 2010 Kouzmanoff on eBay. The results were staggering.

I got back four auctions. FOUR. There were more cards in stores, but just four auctions and all for his Upper Deck jersey, which I paid all of .99 cents for earlier this year. This lends me time to focus on some of Kouzmanoff's earlier cards that I do not own and I bought a nice little beauty just the other day.

But, my eye candy is gone.

  1. Oh, man. I stayed at the Wynn for four nights a couple of years ago (before they started construction of Encore). That place was TIGHT, yo.
