They had a Quest game that allowed users to compete for some pretty cool cards like Gretzky and McDavid auto's, rookie shields, etc. But that game is over so not worth the price.

$500 seems high. Based on the Greens, I'd throw that on eBay as an auction and let any rainbow makers bid it up. I bet you'll end up in the $250 range or better like Rey.

This. Talking smack down 20. Can't wait when they show this clip in a few years when OkC has a 1-15 record against the Warriors post-KD. But at least RW will have lots of stats.

1) redemption vs. live card
2) not currently scarce

10 green
