Ogle That Vogel: Sponsored by '90-'91 Hoops

Remember that craze back in December for Mark Jackson's 1990-1991 Hoops basketball card? At one point sales of the card were being banned on Ebay, but somehow my listing snuck through and I was able to flip two copies of the card for a laughable sale price.
Laughable? I would say so considering the junk wax status of the card. I looked up recent completed sales and the market and novelty of this card seems to waning fast. Strike while the iron is hot!

So, you may have heard that collecting Dan Vogelbach cards is kind of my thing. Recently a nice one popped up and I submitted a "Best Offer." The seller accepted.

It was glorious!
Behold, I now have half of the printing plates from the set. This plate/auto/relic of The VOGELMONSTER is from 2018 Panini's National Treasures set.

I flipped two junk wax cards for a white whale. I still can't believe my good fortune!


  1. That's a beautiful Vogelbach printing plate for sure. It's made even better by the color, though an on-card autograph would be the icing on the cake.

  2. Congrats on the half goal...and maybe more importantly cashing in when the money was good!


  3. Sweet Vogelmonster plate! And it only cost you two massively overproducd (and overhyped) commons. Congrats on a successful sale and spearing of a whale.

  4. That is a sweet Vogelbach!!

  5. Glad you took advantage too! Great pickup.

  6. Awesome! I actually want one of those Menedez cards, but I'd never pay more than a quarter for it. I'm hoping I stumble across a copy one day in a dime box.

  7. You like Vogelbach? News to me...

    That's really awesome. What a great pickup for you!
