I've been a card collector on and off (more ON than off) for about 25 years now and it's always been a hobby that I've thoroughly enjoyed. I've been around long enough to see MANY of the ups and downs of collecting cardboard. In retrospect, I can definitely say that the evolution of the hobby has been a very exciting thing to witness. I currently collect autographs of some of the NBA's youngest top prospects. More information about my purchase/trade preferences, eBay feedback (buyer & seller), trade history, etc. can be seen by checking out the links below:
Tier I of my PC consists of Russell Westbrook RC's. I haven't acquired any of his cards recently, but I will be looking to add to this PC in the future. My goal is to pick up as many of his rookie auto's, jersey/auto's, patch/auto's and super short-printed parallels as I can. During my most recent searches (probably 6 months ago), I started buying his BGS Gem Mint 9.5's and/or PSA Pristine 10's. When I do continue my Westbrook search, I will most likely continue to look for his highly graded RC's and/or ungraded cards that appear to be flawless.
Tier II is a side collection that consists of some of the top-prospects from the 2011 Draft Class and the 2012 Draft Class. They are as follows:
All of these players have become highly sought after on eBay and in miscellaneous forums so their demand seems to be growing continuously. Their performances during the upcoming 2013-14 season will hopefully prove that these players deserve the early superstar status that's similar to that of players such as Kyrie Irving and Damian Lillard.
I'm currently looking for auto's, jersey/auto's, patch/auto's and super short-printed parallels of the players in this tier. I'm also interested in their BGS Gem Mint cards (9.5/10) and/or PSA 10's.
Tier III is also a side collection that is made up of other top-prospects from the '11 and '12 Draft Classes. They are as follows:
Andre Drummond (Interested)
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (Maybe Interested)
Some of these players have already become very popular in the hobby, while others may have just become a blip on the hobby's radar. Just like the players in the Tier II side collection, they could end up being extremely hot once the 2013-14 season starts.
I'm primarily looking for cards of the players in my Tier II section. Although, I will not turn down the opportunity to scoop some great cards of these four players. If you have anything FS that I may be interested in, feel free to contact me.
