Default My Five Star "case"

If you read my previous Five Star thread, you knew that I chickened out with busting my two cases and decided to build my own case by purchasing singles.

My goal was to purchase the cards I wanted for about the price of a box. I cheated a bit by not getting any relic cards, and only two rookie cards. I did get the 3 base cards as well (2 are #/10). I ended up going a little over $600 for the entire haul as I couldn't resist getting a few REALLY nice cards, but that's still half what I'd spend on a case. And here I'm guaranteed to get what I want. I even got a Mike Schmidt rainbow of sorts.

Here are the results of my dream case of Five Star.

Enjoy

Wow great pickups and also great choice! Well spent $600 (surprised how many really nice cards you got for $600!) and I'm guessing you did better then if you busted at least 2 cases probably more like 3. Glad to see the Will Clark in there too I have the same card on the way.

Funny thing about getting the Will Clark card is that I don't even consider myself a big fan of his. It's just after looking at all the Silver autos, I determined that his auto looked the best of any of them... by far. Therefore, I had to get it.

Yea it is a great looking silver ink auto. I also love how most if not all of your cards are mint or pretty close it looks like. I have been turned away from
Bidding on probably 75% of all Five Star card due to damage straight from the box.
