Good morning all, this has several different sports in it, so if I have it in the wrong spot, my apologies.

Some of you may have seen my thread about my cheap 0.10$ bin finds over the last 2yrs but I wanted to share with you the best finds that I've had since 2019 and see if anyone else has had similar "luck". I know that the general sports card industry has taken a large increase in prices over the last little bit but some of what I have found has shocked me a bit. I am not a die hard collector, nor a flipper, but I casually like to follow where Beckett keeps things trending, love them or hate them. I do a one month subscription every January, just for spits and giggles but this time around there was a LOT of movement that I didn't expect, especially on the Basketball side of things. IF I was a flipper, I likely would have had a good year of selling, but I'll settle on the mental scores. Below is the list of cards, what the BV was in January 2020, what the BV is currently and how much I bought the card for. Some of these are absolute steals. Heck, I think all of them are. Have any of you "real" collectors run across steals like this and made profits or felt like you collection is better off because of that score? Thanks for the look.
