Case Break - Sportkings Series E - 16 Box
 
Case from blowout. Very fun time - excellent patches and unique autos. Only complaint would be the collation on the base. I shouldn't end up with 14% of the base as doubles and therefore missing 25% of the base set.

Its gorgeous, but I'd rather have gotten someone else just from a keeping it in my PC standpoint. Now I'll probably sell to take a shot at another one.

nice stuff....

cowie 05-28-2012 08:00 AM

how much are the paintings roughly sellling for?

Straw44 05-28-2012 12:14 PM

When I checked, most are going $300-$600 with a few spiking higher.

teebs 05-30-2012 06:26 AM

I may be wrong and there may be more than one Tony Oliva, but I don't think Tony O. played for the Reds.

twins/reds tomato/topumpkin

I see no problem :)

But yeah..pretty sure he was a twins guy for life..

That maybe be Tony Oliva Stallone...

Would the Carew and Molitor be available?

I came into this post expecting to give a short "no, the Twins (where Oliva played) have hats with a "T & C" (for Twin Citites) logo where the C is very prominent, so that's Oliva" argument, but when I did a short Google search I think that guru is right. Search "Tony Perez pictures" and one comes up poseted by Bob Netherton on April 22, 2011. It is EXACTLY the pose that this painting depicts (the shaodowing on the face, the slight sneer, etc). So you are in fact the owner of a Tony Oliva card with a picture of Tony Perez. Still a beautiful card, just a little weird (esp since there's likely no way to replace it).

mwheeler27 05-31-2012 02:32 PM

Maybe the Tony Perez painted card has Tony Oliva's likeness on it.

I bet it was an honest mistake of switching player photos when making the cards. After all, making 256 individual 1/1 paintings in a short period of time had to be anything but easy. Probably why no other company has attempted something like this, and likely never will.

WhacksPacks 05-31-2012 02:39 PM

I have no doubt that the Good Dr. will make up for the situation if you want...I think it's kind of a cool 1/1 of a 1/1 error 1/1..or some such :p

WhacksPacks 05-31-2012 02:42 PM

[B]Regardless of the error...that boy sho' can paint! His stuff is near spot on![/B]

And on a tiny canvass to boot.

Zoop 05-31-2012 05:25 PM

Haha, that's funny. Pretty cool, too.

bprice 05-31-2012 05:51 PM

I will deal with this immediately.

If the owner of the card will PM me, I will insure that they are well looked after.

I should have caught this in the initial stage of the painting.

Is that a logo on the Reds hat of an unlicensed product?

[QUOTE=SacGWYNN19;2755843]Is that a logo on the Reds hat of an unlicensed product?[/QUOTE]

I don't see a logo. I see a white line.

[QUOTE=marino5084;2755858]I don't see a logo. I see a white line.[/QUOTE]

You can't trademark half logos.. The network I work for sued for another television entity showing half our logo.. My employer lost big time. Half things are not trademarked unless they are trademarked as 'half' if that makes sense. Not sure I'm making sense as I've been up since 0300... But yea, there is zero harm zero foul on that helmet
