Wow. I'm kinda at a loss for words. Well, sort of. Why in the world are cards of that magnitude selling for so cheap? Don't get me wrong bud, I am happy you got it that cheap, but just wonder if the values are gonna take a nosedive even though you are like me and will never part with it regardless of value.

Thanks. the guy had 3 of these for sale all with a .99 starting bid and a $8.18 BIN price and they were 1 color, 2 color and this 5 color so when i went to buy 1 naturally im gonna pick the 5 color :):

i've seen with all the releases this year the value of cards go down and i think its b/c press pass listened to the people who buy nascar boxes/cases to resell the cards. i think thats y this year all but 2 of the releases are under $120 and have more than 1-2 hits per box. it doesnt help that press pass is getting cheap with the size of their memorabilia cards. i've never been a fan of buying nascar boxes when they are released b/c i think they are way way way way way way way waaaaaaaay to overpriced.

Nice pickup for the price.

IMO, PP is flooding the market with RU/Autographs cards that is driving down the value. With a Box of the base press pass release you get 1 auto and 1 RU. In the Redline release you're getting 2 RU + 2 Autos per box, a box of TM was 5 RU/Autos.

Regardless, for a collector of an individual driver, this is the best time to buy.
