Todays picture isn't a card, but a screenshot of which Rendon autos are owed to me by Topps

Quick question since you collect Rendon. Why do you think his prices are so flat? I followed him alot up through the draft was hoping the M's would select him as I was certain that he was gonna be a stud. I have held onto every auto from Bowman that I have ever pulled thinking prices would explode but they never have. I recently just bought a gold ref auto for 129 and thought it was crazy nobody else even bid on the item. Anyway just was curious what your thoughts were thanks

I think it's because collectors these days expect too much too soon. The need for instant gratification means that when a guy doesn't get to the majors and IMMEDIATELY start bashing then they move on to the next guy that might. I had a ton of extra Rendon stuff that I planned on flipping when his prices rose, but as you mentioned, they never did so I've sold most of it off at a loss to pay for his new stuff.

I do, however, think that he's a great post-hype candidate to play well next season and see a decent price jump. I've also enjoyed the prices of his new stuff, as I've been able to add cards that I never thought I'd be able to add because his prices are so low. Plus almost all of his new autos are redemptions and that hurts prices too.

It's my scanner at work. It's as big as a small car and probably costs more than one.

Thanks man. I actually just got off of the phone with Topps and they said that Rendon has signed some of his overdue redemptions including the 2013 Platinum ones, so hopefully you get it somewhat soon. I am waiting on the gold refractor patch version myself, but do not have a red yet.

I'm going to be on vacation next week and probably won't be posting many updates, but i just got word from Topps that some of Rendon redemptions were signed, including my 2013 Topps Chrome Superfractor, 2 Atomic refractors, red refractor, and 3 gold refractors, so I hope I get them somewhat soon and can show them off.

Figured that it's about time I resurrect this. Got a nice one in the mail yesterday. I'll still be posting only sporadically throughout the holidays. Thanks for looking!

Thanks man. It'll get a lot more entertaining when Topps starts sending my redemptions. 3 of them are marked as Shipped, so hopefully they show up soon and that they ship the rest soon thereafter

Did you get the triple threads 1/1 patch that ended yesterday? I noticed it right before it ended.

Yes and I almost bid on it. There's just so many new Rendon stuff coming out that I've had to start being particular with what I acquire. I would have gone after it had I not won the Bowman Black RC above.

Well I don't feel so bad now that I have been waiting almost 2 years for one of my AR autos. I currently am waiting on three Rendon cards from Topps.

I started collecting Rendon once my Harper collection got pretty good. Guess it's pointless now that you have all the good cards! I do have a plate and red wave /25. I had a gold auto like yours but sold it for a measly $280. I think I did okay on that deal. If I decide to part with my Rendons thouh you will be the first I think of. Nice collection!

The card you're waiting on must undoubtedly be from 2012 Platinum? I was waiting on a base and a red refractor, but replaced the red a long time ago. Topps just had a signing with Rendon and had him sign some 2013 products but NOT the 2012 Platinum. Geniuses.

Thanks for the kind words, and there are a lot of nice Rendons out there that I don't have the money to get. There's more than enough to go around!

This arrived yesterday, thank you Amazon and USPS for Sunday deliveries and my neighbor for telling me that USPS dropped a package in my mailbox while I was out.

SICK MAN! I love those atomics. I started my very first pc this year and it is of Adrian Beltre. (a lot of people don't know) My favorite pick up so far is his 1998 bowmans best atomic refractor. When I think I have enough to be deemed "worthy" I will start a little show off thread. Thanks again for sharing

Yeah I like the Atomics, too. I have another one coming, but Topps, in their infinite wisdom, can't send them all in one package. I rec'd one (of 2) Atomics, one (of 3) golds, and one (of 3) base. They still can't be bothered with shipping my Superfractor.

That Atomic Beltre is SWEET. I was in college around that time and collected basketball cards, and LOVED the Bowmans Best sets from 1998, 1999, and 2000.

Todays card arrived with my Atomic auto shown above. I'm still waiting on 2 more of these to show up. This one is going to PSA.

Once again, another great looking card! Good luck with the grading. I actually pulled the Beltre out just to look at it after talking about it. It was shipped, and is still in the old school screw down... Well, I noticed a huge scratch going down the middle and panicked. I took it out the case AND... perfect! lol I can not believe I did not notice the huge scratch on the case when I received the card as I am crazy OCD about the cards I choose to PC. (sent back my first ever card last week on the bay. Bgs case had a huge scratch going down the middle right over his face I could not deal with, and a huge white spec right on his lip that was trapped inside the case also. Card graded a 9 but inside that case it made it look like a 7) Good luck, waiting to see what you post next.

Card of the day just arrived from Topps. FedEx tried to deliver this on Friday but I missed them. They didn't show Saturday so I thought I'd be waiting until today or tomorrow to get it in hand, but FedEx showed up last night around 7:30. Topps originally incorrectly sent me the Blue #/25 version of this and basically said that I was lying about it when I called and told them that they didn't send me the 1/1, well once they decided to actually look, of course they found it.
