I picked up a Charlie Hough auto for the pc. As a kid he was one of my favorite Rangers. Love knuckleballers.

Two more, I wanted the Ryan, and I always liked the looks of the Thomas, so I got another.

This is my favorite baseball product of the year. I have always loved the buyback autos when companies like Topps and Upper Deck did it. But of course now Topps is only concerned with churning out junk full of prospects, rc's, and usa players. Dont get me wrong I do like my share of prospects, but when everything you put out is full of that stuff it gets to be pretty sad. (I know they produce a couple products with legends but they are extremely overpriced and there is still a real lack of creativity) Back in the early and mid 00s the companies had alot of creativity when it came to cards. That is why I really like this stuff. I think Leaf is doing the best that they can with the resources that they have. Yea the dutch auction 'Best of' products are kind of corny, but you still probably get more return out of that stuff than pretty much any other product you are going to buy from Topps or Panini. I think it would be great if at some point Leaf could get a pro license and start to compete with Topps and Panini. I think it would really make everyone step up their game.

Nah, I never even liked the look of the card in 1990, lol.

Will, this one was 260. Usually they end up around this range. I try to get the less streaky autos, although most are.

I just sold a regular base I've had for sometime for $8 on sportlots which is probably the going rate.

I didn't get a buyback Thomas in my case though, some of those buybacks /20 are getting some coin. I would think a Thomas /20 could fetch around 50-60 if not more based on what I have sold some other singles for.

I have a sandberg auto and a few other autos left if anyone is interested including OP.
