You should build a time machine, go back to 2001 and sell that for big money.

Seriously though, nice card and it's always nice too see cards like this.

Awesome card! Always liked Stevie Franchise myself. Have his an autographed shooting shirt and 8 x 10 of his amongst a few other cards. Would love to check your pc sometime!

Very nice Stevey!

Do you need a Gold Label Red /100 RC, if you PC Francis?

SportsItUpCards 01-26-2013 08:32 PM

[B]Kosmo Kards[/B], haha tell me about it... his prices were going crazy back then. Such a great time to collect back then, great memories. Thank you my friend.

[B]Krayzie83[/B], yeah me too, always liked him, even from the begining... and still do! :) Great pieces you have there! Feel free to share pics if you have any. If you don't, don't go through the trouble... I actually never scanned any of my Francis cards. One day I will do it, or at least a video of the collection. It should be up there in cards, I gotta round them all up and really see everything I have. Thank you my friend.

[B]brandonlec[/B], thank you Sir.

[B]the34truth[/B], thanks a lot for posting, I really appreciate it, pm sent!

Did you start PCing him after you won that SPX Radiance Jersey #'d from eBay?

I don't know if you remember but we had a little convo about that card since I was also bidding on that card.

Good luck with your collection !

Nice! I'm still trying to pick up the Elton Brand from this set.

Wings 01-27-2013 01:21 AM

as u guys know, those were a big deal back in the day...
after seeing those had to check his spx rc (what a great looking rc)..
glad to see it still commands "some" respect, and isn't a 5 dollar bin buster...

[B]leeex1[/B], hey man how's it going! No not at all... been collecting him for a very long time. Can't really remember when I started collecting him more seriously. Back in 2000 I pulled his Spx RC/500 and ever since then i've liked Francis as a player. Just didn't pick up any high end as they were going real high. Years later when the prices dropped did I start picking up the higher end stuff. I enjoy collecting him for many reasons... Thanks man, the collection is coming along very slowly. Something to keep me busy. Are you still collecting him?

[B]whalechaser[/B]. Thanks! Good luck with the Brand, these are very rare. They didn't have any odds of pulling them, they were very random, as they are numbered low. Or at least very low for back then, and I still think today. They don't make very much hat cards, so I can see people stashing these away.

[B]Wings[/B], thanks! Tell me about it... Many great memories. :)

[B]thewild3[/B], beauty! Looks like they all signed their hats.

[B]bettydaw1970[/B], yes, these were a very big deal back then, and I think they're still today with the older collectors. Just don't have much competition in bidding as many people just simply forgot about them, thus no searching. I don't think the Francis Spx RC/500 will ever be one of those $5 BIN's haha. That is as classic as a card can come! What started the autographed RC :cool: Part of history right there.

That hat's off set brings back so many memories. My cousin pulled a James Posey and he made Beckett Magazine in their hot pulls section. Those were the good ol days:)

SK40 01-30-2013 11:49 PM

Is it possible to pull autographed swatches of the hat as they are photographed with autographed hats? Or is it the one they're wearing?

Great pick-up regardless. These were big news when released.

SportsItUpCards 01-31-2013 01:36 AM

[B]Chris P[/B], cool stuff man, thanks for sharing! Those were the good ol days when you pulled something amazing like this and wrote to beckett... Man I love this hobby :) Bring back the old beckett mag, when they had the top 10 or 15 card list for each player :cool: and many other cool stuff.

[B]SK40[/B], thanks! Good question... but I have no idea. Maybe they cut up both, and the autographed piece is possible? I have no clue. I don't think I remember any with the autographed piece showing. But very possible though. Will definitely keep my eyes opened if I ever see one i'll post about it.

When Steve Francis was at his playing that was when I took a break for collecting. I'm starting to pick up some of his cards since the price is right. Check out my pickups. Nothing too fancy.

Since he is a Maryland guy and I grew up in Maryland am going to casually PC him. I'm not going to overbid for him or go out of the way for his stuff but I will check the bay and tradboards from time to time and if I get a good deal I will take it.

bigcwd2000 01-31-2013 12:33 PM

Nice card. Game-used hat cards. I like them. It would cool to see Panini do a set with game used hats, or shoelaces, or net like they did with the early 2000's sets.
