I am finally able to cross off a collecting goal of mine for 2013.
An on card short print autographed card of the Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III has been obtained by me…and it’s quite beautiful.
I have been looking online at Ebay, COMC and Collector’s Revolution for a good deal on a RGIII on card auto and wasn’t too happy with paying what most of the cards were selling for. Some of them were way out of this guys price range and some were ridiculously priced for a chunk of cardboard. There were quite a few decent priced cards, but they were sticker autos which i was trying to avoid.
How did i get this card you ask? Well, as i’ve mentioned in the past, i’ve been selling off some old personal items like books and CD’s, using that money to purchase cards this year. With each transaction i made, i would put aside a little extra so when i found a nice card i liked i could jump on it. So i did last week. It’s not a perfect card by any means as most of these thicker and darker cards tend to be, but i absolutely LOVE the photo and design of the Inception cards. Not to mention the on card ink! This is always a huge plus for my collector’s eye. The card is also a short print Green variation numbered to 50.
I am happy to have this in my collection, now i’ve been debating whether or not to get it graded. I have never been someone to get a card graded and honestly feel like that’s one of the many things destroying this hobby…but if it preserves my card and can turn it in to a future investment, it might be worth it.
