Default Detroit Tigers mailday - 2 new additions to my collection (One is a Biggie!)

Okay, so here are the newest additions to my Detroit Tigers autograph collection. The first card is pretty cool because I never even knew he had a card in a Detroit uniform and that is a requirement for my collection (I realize I am picky).

My collection for those who maybe haven't seen it:

The second card I will let speak for itself, but I do want to thank Jeff (weedyalan) and Robert (iluvfish2) for finding the card for me at Nationals.


2010 Topps Opening Day Daniel Schlereth



Here is the other addition....

2004 SP Legendary Cuts Ty Cobb #16/18!!!!




The card is actually a PSA 8 and I'm not an expert at graded cards, but I really don't see anything wrong with the card. I am happy regardless!!!

Quick story: I was at the Nationals this year with my dad for 2 days looking for Detroit autographs I didn't have. Well, of course we were looking for a Ty Cobb. We had to leave on Friday and not even 45 minutes after we left I got a text from Jeff showing me this Ty Cobb card. I couldn't believe I had missed it! I learned it was up for auction and about a week later I bid and won (it was the weirdest auction I have ever been a part of). I have been waiting patiently for 2 weeks for my payment to arrive, my check to clear, and for the card to be shipped. It was worth the wait!

HOLY F'EN CRAP! I usually hate cut autos, but that Tyrus looks GREAT! Congrats. You're collection is my aspiration.

Wow, I am typically not a fan of cut autos at all and UD usually does a major hack job (or has been lately). That being said, that Cobb is simply awesome. Great full signature, a nice picture of the player in the Detroit uni. All around great card. Awesome pick up.

Wow, that would be the pinnacle of most collections. Beautiful card. If you do not mind me asking where was the auction and how much did it cost you to pick it up?

I don't mind...most people probably realize it is a crazy expensive card. I actually got it from collectauctions.com. It was a crazy way to do an auction. They had something called extended bidding time. I had to bid at least once before the final 24 hours of the auction to be eligible for extended bidding. Basically it is set up so that if someone bids there is a 15 minute reset on the clock. That way, no one can snipe it in the last seconds. Well that part is fine, but the crazy part was that the 15 minute timer reset if someone bid on ANY of the 200+ auctions on the site. I actually was winning the Cobb for about 2 hours and then someone outbid me briefly. I went to bed at 1:30 that night and the timer was still resetting. I figured either I wake up the winner or it went over my max bid. Obviously, I won it. I paid $1994 after fees, tax, and shipping costs. I have seen a few Cobbs on ebay over the last 2 years and they have been over $2250, so I think I did okay.

I would say you did more than okay. The ones I looked at on ebay were not nearly as nice as the one you have. I think you got a steal at that price, congratulations. On ebay, I could see your card going in the $3,500 range. Your's is a beautiful example of Cobb's auto, IMO.

Very nice auto....very nice. Didn't realize Ty was short for Tyrus. Nice accomplishment there.

I don't plan on ever getting rid of it, but I guess if I ever need the $ that would be a nice price to get!
