thanks. yeah i got it for a steal on ebay. the seller had it listed horribly and it was ending like at 3 am on a saturday. i bought it strictly for a investment. how many do you have? from the research i've done these would seem to be the rarest gio rookies available, besides the bowman chrome red's, right? you never see them on ebay, and mine is the only one currently listed.

The Donruss Elite's are beautiful cards with the exception that Gio has such a tall autograph you will rarely see a BGS 10 grade on the auto. I have several of these and had several of them graded. Most came back with 8's and 9's auto grade from Becket. I love the Bowman Chrome version for this reason, his auto is directly on the card and they are not as condition sensitive.

The Fleer Hot Prospects are the worse! If you can find a BGS 10 auto grade on a Fleer Hot Prospects, I would be completely surprised. I do like the thickness of the card but his autograph on most of these cards are atrocious!

Great pick up on the Gold!

Gio47...I know we've had our differences, but that is a very nice PC. Does he sign a lot of items "Double G Unit"? That is pretty fly!

Thanks bro! No, he rarely signes Double G Unit. He really only did it in 2004, year he got drafted.

You know they have autograph sessions in the Lexus Presidential section before every game.

Haha. I love the double G-Unit, but does that actually count as an auto?

Yes of course. That's how he signed his name on the card and it's stamped "authentic signature" as well.

It's not the 2012 Topps Chrome Super that Swingman is looking for, is it? I see a major possible conflict of interest

No, I mainly collect Gio's 2004 rookies and auto's. I send all supers and plates Swingman's way.
