Default The results of my latest prostate exam courtesy of Upper Deck Fleer Retro

So I give the doctor....er uh....card shop owner $250 and I get basically the equivalent of a finger in the ole hoo-ha.

Here are my 6 autos....yes, believe it or not, these are supposedly all basketball players.



Check out these retro inserts. They are the retroiest retro inserts ever retroed. Only top notch players in these Upper Deck products.



and the payoff.......









IMO the cards above are worth about $10 total......








and the $240 pay off is??????????????








MY TWO BIGGEST HITS OF THE BOX!





A Larry Bird #/100 and MR. baby JORDAN HIMSELF!!!!!

The Cowens is a cool card. One of the nicest College Uni cards I have seen. Too bad it's a sticker auto.

ouch. Wasn't sure if totally serious, but you should be able to get more than $10 for the cards. I mean, some of those guys are HOFers and can least get a few $ each!

Little miffed by your comment about them even being basketball players - 2 of them are HOF'ers, but I can see why you're unhappy with that box. The Bird looks nice though.

This stuff should plummet like the football did. Upper deck trying to make 10x as much product with the crappy players hoping it would get a huge presell like last years. What a joke

This looks like all of my 2011 and most of 2012 breaks bud, I feel for you! I think on 2011, I was about $2000 in before I hit a card that was selling for more than $50. Wallet is still smoking 1.5 years later. Pulling the 2 HOF isn't the worst you could have done, but still rough.

That was more like a Rib Spreader in the Hoo Hah. What in the heck is wrong with putting stars in the Retro Inserts?
