Default I think there's something wrong with me...

No matter how bad he (and the overall passing game) continues to play, I can't stop buying Ponder autos. Somebody help me!

The cards keep getting cheaper and cheaper by the day. I'm so far upside down with this collection, I'm to a point of no return. I don't get the "high" I used to buying mid-level products anymore...I need NT, Five Star, Supreme!

all that tells me is that you're a collector and not an investor. nothing wrong with that at all. I mean look at me...I've got a collection right now of over 100 different autos of DeVier Posey who's a rookie WR for the Texans that hasn't had a pass thrown to him yet this year, lol.

atleast your guy is playing!!

Playing for now at least. I love collecting, but the logical side of my brain is getting upset know it's likely a poor investment.

I did the EXACT same thing with Francisco Liriano 4-5 years ago. I never learn.

Haha I understand.

If you want it, I could let it go for $32 dlvd.

I like Ponder, so hopefully he turns it around for you

Thanks for the offer, but I have my remaining PP balanced reserved for a couple auctions ending in a few days. I might check back if I get sniped. Danke!

see that's why I do different parts to my PC. I have parts of my PC that are strictly a collection. I buy em because I want to have the best PC I can of that particular player and give little to no thought of potential future value.

i.e. DeVier Posey

then I have parts of my PC that are investment. these are cards that I buy because they have solid value now, and I can be reasonably certain they will continue to have solid value (and will hopefully increase in value) over time. for me that's my Nolan Ryan auto PC, and my vintage stuff.

so who cares if Christian Ponder ends up being a bad "investment" just collect his stuff because you're a Vikings fan and you want it as part of your collection!

Haha. See my reply to Cromartie above. Definitely not in my budget wheelhouse ATM. If you had a nice NT 2 or 3 color, then we'd be talking .

Saw that, but whatever auctions you are watching they don't trump that bad boy

Personally I think he gets a bad rep. He gets called the worst quarterback in the league yet he's still learning, has a better TD/INT ratio and is in the upper half of the league in completion percentage. All of this when all he has is Percy Harvin (sometimes) and Kyle Rudolph and all of their receivers are possession receivers. They have no one on the roster to help spread the field like a Julio Jones. Keep buying, he is going to be fine, probably better than now once the Vikings realize to give him some more weapons

Agree 100%. I wish the TV cameras would show the whole field more often. That said, some of the bad decisions drive me nuts, but the same can be said of most young QBs.

I still want a Ponder NT Vikings head patch /25, but will wait until when it's under $200.

Plenty did and his stuff sold for A LOT more early on. I busted some older Contenders hoping to pull an AP and ended up pulling a dual Auto with JaMarcus on it .

3 Colors /99 are still holding around $100, but if the trend continues (or he gets benched), you might be able to snag one by year's end.

1/1s are always tricky, which is why I avoid them unless the price is right. There's nothing to compare to. Plus so many people think their 1/1s are "priceless". I've pulled piles of different 1/1s in my life, most of which have sold for well under $100. I think I've sold only one for over $100 and it wasn't even a rookie or huge name/set.

I can relate. No matter how absolutely terrible Curtis Painter was, I still kept interest in his cards, especially the harder to find ones. You aren't alone, my friend.
