My Pineda collection was going strong when they traded him but I think I missed the boat as far as flipping it. Now the only thing I can hope for is that the sales go strong once he's back.

I was in the same boat. I was able to sell a few autos (four or five) when they were at peak value but held on to quite a bit of his stuff. I might try to move it when he comes back, but we will see.

Does your Golden Futures auto relic have a defect on the back? My Pineda does and I've noticed a lot online that have it also.

The way I justify it is I recently bought a box of 2011 Finest for around $130 and hit 2 Jordan Walden autos, basically just pissed the money away since those are $4 autos all day. Thats how I justify dropping $100+ on a single card.

Lol I'm the same way. I'll get pissed...don't
Bust wax for a while..and then I get that itch. To me it just seems hard spending 150$ on ONE (although worthy) card...but
I still haven't gotten the message beamed into me enough that its better than getting a Scott Rolen GU lol.

I haven't actually bought a box in about 6 months but I have a feeling that is going to change when Archives is released. I love that product!

I haven't noticed one, but I can look. What does your defect look like?

One of back top corners has the paper peeled back a little bit and makes it look like a white dot. Centering is horrible on it too but I have no control over that.

He's starting to get his batting average up. If the Mariners can keep up this run support, the pitching staff will be very happy. Plus, the Rainier's have won 10 in a row, so we might see Franklin or Zunino pop their heads up in the M's dugout very soon!

They are also transitioning Stefan Romero to the outfield, which means we'll see him faster now. I have really good feelings about the future!

Saunders and Seager are both playing great. Ackley is coming around. Our problem is the 3-4-5 starters. They blow!

Sweet collection too

Hey bud I checked the card and the corners do have what you mention on the back. Probably because the card is so thick.

Love the video, thanks for posting it up. Also love that Ackley hit that grand slam yesterday. Hopefully these bats we've seen lately can keep it up. We're starting to look like a real team!

I wanted to post this up in case you didn't have it. I pulled it from a Jumbo box of 2011 Topps Update I found a few months back in Longview on my way down to the Oregon Coast.

2011 Topps Next 60 Duston Ackley Auto RC


Apparently a few of the autos from the set were SSP and Ackley happens to be one of them.

That is fairly impressive. I have never been able to grow chops but I have a buddy who used to resemble Wolverine. Now he is clean shaven....boo!

Nice pickup! Bowman Chromes are the ones I am going after next but those low number ones can get pretty pricey, especially if he keeps it up this season!

Thanks man! If the girlfriend had anything to do with it she would like me to downsize both, my collection and the beard. She's a good sport though.

Sweet collection too
M. Saunders is looking great and I think he is only going to improve. Seager has proven that he can hit in the three hole so in all reality we should be batting Saunders, Ackley, Seager, Morales, and Morse but I am ok with shifting everyone up one and Ackley batting around 7th or so, he has been getting some really good pitches there. J. Saunders is on lockdown at Safeco, so he has really picked up that aspect from Vargas. I can't wait to get Beavan back into the rotation, he showed really good stuff last year towards the tail end of the season and he can prove to be a good 5 starter for us in the future.
