We ripped our Yoenis Cespedes /25 and pulled a Prince Fielder EXT mini. After we ripped it we saw another /25 Cespedes rip sell for $250.

Just pulled another one!!! THis one I think I might need to sell instead of rip:



Attachment 163683

FELIX HERNANDEZ #9/10!!!

I saw one sell on Friday for @300.00 so not thinking the chance to hit something better is worth the risk...What do you think???

I guess the risk/reward is just too great, especially for a new product.
Catch 22 if no one rips then the EXT cards are rare and pull big money.

Good call. Also, the "better players" single versions seem to be serial numbered lower to begin with..several /10..

Pulled another RIP but this one is a DUAL RIP:



Attachment 163916Attachment 163917
CHASE UTLEY/RYAN HOWARD #5/5

I know these dual RIPs are not selling as high as most of us want them too but I am not sure if I should rip this.

Is it possible to CT scan a baseball card to see what is inside?

I know this isn't about what I got from a rip but I pulled a Bundy rip/10 and put it on ebay and it ended at $119ish. I should have just opened it.
