So close...yet so far away...

As some of you might know, I am a big fan of the 2012 Allen & Ginter framed silk cards. I was recently able to score a few and I showed you earlier a great looking Rivera as well as a Kershaw silk card while the other week I was also lucky enough to get my hands on a Verlander. A few weeks back I also won one of the Sabathia Silk cards (#8/10) and I waited....and waited......and the card didn´t show up....

So yesterday I received an e-mail from the seller apologizing that the card was returned to him with the story from the post office that the postal truck was part of an accident which destroyed some mail including the envelop that was on its way to me AND it destroyed the Sabathia card as well !!! Assuming one cannot make up these stories and believing in the honesty of people I guess this is a case of simply bad luck. The issue now is, with 1 destroyed there are only 9 left globally....and I still feel the urge to chase one of them down for my Sabathia collection......so i guess it´s now a case of "wish me luck !!!"



  1. Very elegant cards; I pulled a Jackie Robinson silk that I let go for 80.00 on Ebay. I havn't seen the CL lately, is there a Reds silk?

    1. As far as i am aware there are 10 silk cards of every base card in the set

  2. I just had to go check you CC page. Glad you got one!

  3. Hope you left negative feedback for the seller considering what happened.
