View Full Version : Please rate my Chris Paul collection

05-22-2006, 08:09 AM
I just made a Photobucket site last night and I wanted to see what everyone thought of my Chris Paul collection so far. I've been collecting him for like a month and a half now. I've only got $230 cash into it and the rest I got in trades. Well, check out the link to my Photobucket site in my sig and let me know what you think. Thanks.

nice paul collection....but what is REALLY impressive is you auto focus collection...is that complete?

05-22-2006, 08:25 AM
Not yet. I'm only missing Amare Stoudemire, Shaun Livingston, and Delonte West to complete it. I should be picking up an Amare off someone, so I'd be down to only those other 2 here shortly. I just made the Photobucket site last night, but it's only half done. I still have my Shaq personal collection and early-mid 90's complete insert sets to add. I'm hoping to have it finished by the end of the week.

please make another post when u finish ur photobucket...i like looking thru nice collections...
i completed the 2005 football sp authentic rc patch auto set. costed a load, but its was fun....i just hope that at least a few of the rookies pan out. how long u been collecting? did u pull any of those, or did u have to buy each one individually?

05-22-2006, 08:51 AM
Shaqfan-LOL, just let me know when you come up with some cash.

Lik55-I just looked at your football collection and it's very nice. I've been back into collecting for about 2 years. I used to collect when I was younger for like 4-5 years, but then I stopped when I got in high school. I'm glad to be collecting again because it's a very fun hobby.

I bought most of the Auto Focus off Ebay except I bought like 8-9 off of a Beckett member (I got the Lebron, Kobe, Garnett, & some lower ones from him) and traded for a couple of them off of here. I only bought 2 packs of Trilogy last year and got 2 crappy glass rc's, so I was pretty disappointed. Last summer I decided I wanted to put together a nice auto set that had MJ, Lebron, Kobe, Garnett, & some rookies, and I just loved the way the plexi-glass cards looked, so I decided on the Auto Focus. It cost me a decent amount though, lol. I'll definitely make another post when I complete my Photobucket.

make me an offer on my Chris Paul BGS 8.5 Hardcourt rookie

05-23-2006, 02:36 AM
I don't have any cash to spend right now. I'm saving up for a Paul SPX auto/jersey rc. I need about $55 more. I remember you saying a couple days ago you didn't like anything off of my site because I wanted your Paul SPXcitement rc and one of your other Paul's also, so I take it you don't want to trade. I really like Paul SPXcitement rc because I don't have it. If you'd sell that for a decent price, I'd buy it with a money order.

I'm glad to see 64 people check this out and only 3 reply. Thanks alot. :icon_roll

Wow, 107 views now and only 2 comments about my Chris Paul collection. :confused:

05-25-2006, 01:45 PM
only 2 autos????Not that great if you ask me,...if you need a shaq auto 16x20 by mounted memories,lmk through a pm....BTW,nice auto focus collection

05-25-2006, 02:15 PM
not bad for just staring it. Keep it up I am a big Wake fan and wish I would have picked up some of his nicer stuff cheap when I had the chance

05-26-2006, 02:38 AM
Thanks for the comments. I wish I had more than 2 autos, but that's all I can afford for the time being. As I said, I only have $230 moneywise invested in this collection (for both the autos and one of the Bowman Chrome rc's).

I wish I would've started collecting him a little sooner than I did, so I could have all of his base rookie cards by now, but oh well.

05-29-2006, 12:30 PM
Very nice! He's the Rookie of the Year so I'd be collecting his cards like crazy.

05-29-2006, 12:42 PM
i like your pau gasol printing plate

05-30-2006, 04:30 AM
BASEketball-Thanks. Yeah, he's the rookie of the year and one of the best true point guards to come out in a long while.

yolowhi-I'm looking to get rid of it. PM me and we can discuss this further.

05-30-2006, 05:13 PM
Very, very nice. What some people dont realize is that a lot of those base rcs are $5-$15 per card on ebay.

05-30-2006, 05:17 PM
Nice for just starting out, I am about to buy his chrome xfractor /90 hopefully on ebay for my set.

05-30-2006, 06:52 PM
WooHoo, just picked it up!!! I paid the equivalent of my first born for it, but if I can make the set it will be worth it for sure, and if not I can get about what I paid for it in the long run.

06-01-2006, 04:51 AM
cardboardmoney-Thanks. Yeah, like you said, most sell pretty decent on Ebay. Luckily, I traded for all of them except 3 (the 2 autos and 1 of the Bowman Chrome's)

swill300-What did you pay for the Topps Chrome x-fractor? I would love to have that also, but I'd like to regular refractor and black refractor even more.

06-02-2006, 09:17 PM
how many press pass gu versions are there? i just got a #/250 on ebay but then i saw your #/100

is there one lower than that?

06-03-2006, 01:11 AM
I just checked my Beckett and the regular is /600, gold /250, and blue /100. I just got the gold /250 this past week and thought it was just the base jersey, but I found out it's the gold version now. I have a few more CP3's to add to my list, but all are doubles of ones I already have except the Press Pass jersey /250.
