Default Thank you, Prizm! - Collection upgrade mailday 1/2

As I have posted/blatantly gloated about, I was extremely lucky when it came to breaking Prizm retail packs. All of my purchases consisted of 10-15 loose packs from boxes at different stores, and I somehow hit Green Prizms of Lillard, Davis, Lebron, MKG, Rubio, and others. I have a few left and am kind of just sitting on them for now. All in all, I probably busted roughly 130 retail packs.

This is part 1 of 2 of me sharing my overall collection upgrade that I have tried to accomplish in the past few weeks. The luck helped - I did a lot of selling of the Greens and a cash/card deal, and after all of the selling and trading, I was able to get the following for about $70 total (on top of what I originally paid for the Prizm packs of course, ha).

Anyway, I do like the Prizm Greens and ended up keeping these 3 for my PC. Was very happy to see these guys make an appearance:







I used the funds from the big ones (and a few smaller deals with more common Greens) to get the following:

/79 - awesome in person and a cool part of my Faried PC:



Now onto the main business at hand...

My first auto of his - hopefully this gets turned around relatively quickly. Got this for what I considered an absolute STEAL on eBay:



And then there is this card, which has always been one of my ultimate "there is no way I will ever own that card" list. Thrilled to pick up a halfway decent copy:



And then the biggest of the big. My first auto of his, and really I had no confidence in getting my hands on one ANYTIME SOON AT ALL until I saw Damian Lillard staring back at me during lunch break one day - Lillard looks great in green. Cannot believe this card is in my collection, and it will not be leaving it anytime soon:



thanks for looking! Will get proper scans and also a Part 2/2 later this week once a few more things come in.

Jeff

I was able to pull 2 more big ones (Kyrie Green Base RC and Kyrie Green Downtown Bound), and turned them around as well.

Picked this up - I really felt like I was low on quality KD cards, and wanted to add this to the auto redemption:




Also grabbed this - got it for a great price and I love this set:



Put the rest of the leftover PayPal into my bank account and I am DONE with Prizm until next year!

thanks for looking,
Jeff
