My personal trading card collection improvements, March 2016

Rate this Entry
For more than a month I'm really into the SeReal created 2015-16 Dinamo Riga trading card collecting, I just love to to hunt the autograph cards. For now I have collected 7 of 37 and I love this set simplicity and design while autograph stickers quality isn't so good. If we are used to receive autograph cards where autographs are signed with sharpie then I have seen really thick and terrible autograph cards.
I also have collected the entire base card set which consists of two subsets Home and Away. I'm not a set collector but this is nice to have them. All of the base set cards and autographs are for trade available if you are interested, I have a checklist too.

Upper Deck e-Pack
In March 21st, 2016 Upper Deck e-Pack launched trading function and since then it has been really great. Well, trading is interesting if you have something to trade so I bought a box of 2015-16 Upper Deck Series 1 two weeks earlier to challenge my luck and I wasn't disappointed, my big hit was 2015-16 Upper Deck Day With The Cup #DC3 Jonathan Toews with Beckett value $60. And at the moment when card trading was launched my first thought was what could I get from this card. I created a wish list and while I was perusing it I saw that there was 2015-16 Upper Deck Young Guns Exclusives Spectrum #225 Ronalds Kenins /10 available I created trade without hesitation. After few hours and long thinking from trade partner the trade was accepted. I think that this trade was a steal for me, because cheapest 2015-16 Upper Deck Young Guns Exclusives Spectrum #225 Ronalds Kenins /10 cards in internet card stores was $90 so I'm very happy with this deal. I would like to call this story an Upper Deck e-Pack success story.

Upper Deck sure is fun but I would like to throw a huge stone into the e-Pack's garden. The biggest issue with e-Pack is that the user can't choose whether to add or don't add the toploader for cards you would like to ship for yourself. On twitter I asked if this still is an issue, they answered - that toploaders are added for higher end cards. Well sure series one have many "higher end" cards and I asked which are these "higher end" cards and answer from Upper Deck was - some Young Guns, Exclusives all High Gloss and certain jersey cards. Well good job Upper Deck, good job.

P.S. I also have some improvements in my homepage.
