I lived there for 7 years and they grow them on trees out there. I also "knew" one of the Warrior girls and yes, they get paid nothing!

Couldn't agree more. My girl was next to me in bed last night and saw the thread. Before even commenting on the guys she noticed how hurt the laker girls were.

The 51 was 4 figures but the centering sold me. Figured that card is as liquid as cash with all Mantle collectors. It would have to be real bad times to let that one to though. The 52T is next......

54T Mays is such a nice looking card. I always loved the 54 design, shame Mantle isn't in that set.

I would say over $500 is high end. That's what gives me an actual thought about, "do I really want to drop the money for this card?"

Great idea. I hate stickers but hell, they must get tons of those things signed. Would be very cost effective to get buy backs and put a sticker on them. Insert 1 per pack or 3 per box or something.

I would hate to play pick up ball with anyone complaining that that was a foul.

Really sad to see a 4x MVP complain like that after the game too. It's things like that that turn people off to LBJ.
