Also, I actually had Simon Gagne buying his own autographed cards, he liked them because they were "certified". He was actually really cool about it when I sent him a pair of POE rookie cards as a bonus he sent one back signed. The note said it wasn't certified LOL.

I wish I still had that, it went into the ocean during Katrina.
That's sweet Simon Gagne was always my favorite Flyer and still my favorite player, I would've freeked if Gagne bought something from me. He signed a card for me once when I mailed it into him too.

My brain isn't working too well on who, but I have sold to about 15-20 family members the last couple years. The only one I can remember is Chris Okey from chrome USA.

She can't corner the whole print run. I have another raw piece plus a graded BGS 9.5/10 that is part of the set I am making. I have 30 of the 41 cards in the set graded BGS 9.5. Sending out the other 11 to get graded soon.

I sold a 2011 Bowman Chrome Matt Lollis blue refractor 150 to a woman with Lollis as last name. So I figured it was family member of some sort.

Large base lot's full of dupes attract players and parents it seems (probably to autograph and give out to kids etc...), sold a 20 card Mike Bacsic to himself as well as Dustin Mcgowan, then sold a bowman chrome base card of dan straily and a Ryan Wheeler auto to their moms.

I just sold a Nathan Enderle (football rookie this year) and the winner had the same last name. So I asked if he was related and he said yes a long distant relative....

I talked to Brooks Pounders of the Pittsburgh Pirates, while he was on State College in 2009 and he said his dad had nearly every card of his, and had dropped close to 500 on a 1/1.

Back in 2007-2008 I sold many Freddie Freeman lots and refractors to his brother. He messaged me and told me to contact him whenever I pulled any of his cards. He paid TOP dollar. I knew nothing about Freeman back then.

Whattttt...NO! Gagne has always been my favorite Flyer, since he was drafted. I've met him several times and he is just the nicest guy in the world. You lucky bastard. Did you send them to PA/NJ or back to Quebec?


Also, RE: Tyler Thornburg. I pulled some color ref of him...wonder if I should ebay it?
