    Looking for all Roy Campanella cards: base, inserts, GU, anything I don't have is fair game.

    LambeauSouth would you want to trade for the Jean Segura auto?

    Cwazzy, I love those cards! That's the direction I really want to take with my collection (and I will). I'll still buy the baseball Chromes (as well as the modern football cards for my PC), but I have such a passion for vintage. They represent the connection to the game's past. Those T206s are just beautiful, as are the Campys. I like, too, that you have nice diversity in your Campanellas-Topps, Bowman and locals. I tip my hat to you! Bravo!

    Mario, those Kemps are gorgeous. Isn't it amazing how nice those Triple Thread cards look? They're thick card stock just like the Five Star line, yet for some reason, the Five Star cards have just lousy edges and corners. If I could get more thick card stock issues that looked like yours, I'd dive in headfirst. But they are so condition sensitive. I'm curious, did you get those from packs, or did you buy them individually?

    BTW, I am going to add a 2005 Chrome Matt Kemp auto here very soon. I think now is the time to get it, as the price dipped a bit after a really good, but injury-shortened 2012. If he does what I think he's going to do in 2013, his Chrome auto is going to skyrocket again. In fact, I think I'll buy it a the end of this month. If I wait, he'll have another huge April like he did last season, hitting .455 with 12 HR, and my piggy bank will suffer as a result!

    Royals-R-US, thank you, but I really don't do any trading of my cards. Anything I get is for my personal collection. I bought that Segura about an hour after the Brewers got him in the Greinke trade, and I'm actually going to start collecting him as part of my Brewers PC.

    The triple threads were just good luck on ebay. I do take the pic off the ebay listing put it into photoshop, as using photoshop I can zoom in on corners and edges and around where the jersey is placed.

    That's funny, I do the same thing. I also use the measure tool now to see how centered a card is. In preferences, under units and rulers, I set rulers to pixels. I set the ruler to just outside the card's edge, and measure to the inside of the border edge. Then, I pick up the ruler, and drag it to the opposite edge. Or, if I'm feeling frisky, I'll just measure all 4 individually.

    I haven't had any of my cards graded yet, but it's nice to know that if I did, I would get a 9.5 on the majority of my Chrome collection, at least on the centering grade. The edges and corners are pretty close. The only subjective thing is the surface, and Chrome cards are notorious for scan lines, little nicks, etc. There are a few I want to replace, but for the most part, the buys I've made have come using that method.

    I'm not hating on Grienke but, the Angels traded three of their better prospects for half of a year with Grienke. Plus it wasn't even a good half.

    No it's ok, I agree with you. I hated losing Greinke, but long term, this could be a boon for the Brewers. Segura is going to be a stud, and I really like Hellweg's upside. I think Pena could be good out of the pen, too. Maybe a setup guy.
