  1. I like Edwards too. Still waiting for prices to settle a bit for most of the guys.

    I saw a $300 red ref auto of Blackburn get snapped up quick today.

    Should have a write up on Renato Nunez soon!

    1. I know what you mean with fickle pricing on new releases. But for a guy like Edwards that's under $10, I don't want to wait for pricing to settle as he has all the makings of a $15+ auto (like carmart was). His last outing was the icing on the cake. I'm a huge believer. I'd stick to low end autos though because the high end might have to settle and seems to be at a very high multiple of the base auto pricing.

      Thanks for the comment. Looking for to your Nunez post. I see a lot of collectors looking for him.
