Very nice stuff, Wheeler! Always impressive!

Quick question regarding the Lance Armstrong one. What are your thoughts on it; especially everything that is going on with him. Increase over time or decrease, since they stripped the wins from him?

Thanks!

I read an article that stated 20 of the 21 people being awarded during Armstrong's 7 year reign are tied to the same things he is being accused of. If this is true, how many of those/all competitors were doping, using PEDs, or steroids, etc.? I would imagine it would be safe to assume quite a few. Having said that, I guess Armstrong, (guilty or not), is still the best in my opinion.

To answer your question, I can't imagine being stripped of his titles doing anything but hurting his "collector value", however, he's still a hero of several sorts in my eyes, and will always be admired and collected. After all, nobody else will be awarded those titles during that 7-year run. Only Armstrong can say he was the one on top during that time, and I think that will be important.

Barry Bonds is the homerun king. Lance Armstrong was the best during that 7-year run, and he passed many tests proving it. Again, all in my opinion.

I updated the OP with a few more additions. I'm happy these are still trickling in.

Thanks!

I've seen a Texas Tech Sportkings patch, but never an A&M patch.

I don't know if they could make college stuff or not. I'm guessing they could if they had the authentic memorabilia.

Ive seen this thread, and a few others with your handle when it comes to sports kings. I was wondering if you did any other sets that price puts out. I think ive seen you talk about presidential cuts as well.

I put the base set of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue together. I did that to try to win this painted George Washington card:



I prefer artistic cards over photos, but mainly stick to Sportkings. I'm not "serious" about any other product.

even lance armstrong's "livestrong" 2012 nike air max shoes dropped to the super sale section of nike.com (not sure if they even sell them anymore)...went from like $170 to $75 and they were still basically brand new. an almost identical color was still selling for $170 (full price) concurrently.

that was my first taste of the "armstrong effect"...
