Im a little confused..You obviously don't like Beckett, because of their unrealistic pricing format, and corporate sponsored reviews, but yet you have several links to Tuff Stuff magazine on your fantastic award winning blog. I have a copy of each on my desk right now, and both are identical price guide wise. Can you explain this to me from a collectors standpoint. This is my take As far as R.C cards go ( I know It doesn't mean much right)...You have a large group of collectors that aren't prospectors ( Beardy for example) so therefore they aren't willing to gamble on a box of BDPP, because they don't want to end up with autographs of player's they have never heard of. Topps knows this so in order to please the masses they produce a R.C in both Topps flagship/ Chrome. I like this for one major reason alone, and that is by the time Chrome is released you have a better idea on how well that player is going to produce at the M.L.B level. Also If all else fails you can at least identify with the pro players in the pack, and possibly pull some nice refractors as well. I can go on, but Im sure an expert like yourself knows where Im going here. Also I find It strange nobody ever calls into the show? Even an ad free un-award winning blog like ours get 35-50 comments for a basic contest. I mean it is a good listen isn't it?ThanksMojo
Thanks for you kind comment on my post about the Mantle & Mays Autos at http://booboosue.blogspot.com/2010/10/mantle-mays-robinson-palmer-and-brock.htmlI know you said it was a great find, but I don't think it compares to finding Don West. I'm going to do a post about West and give you full kudos for finding him. You see, while you can leave it at "enough said", this guy kept me up at nights and I MUST write about him just to get it out of my head. Hopefully, it will be a good read. If you get a chance to see it, let me know what you think.
Mojo, Instead of going into a long diatribe here, I encourage you to simply search the blog for the tag "Beckett Sucks". While they have made some improvements to editorial, I still believe the their price guide model to be very antiquated as is Tuff Stuff's as well. I have also been highly critical of SCD for accepting ad money from a company know to sell forged autograph ites (Coaches Corner) and TS O'Connell's defens of the scandal plague MastroNet auctions. As to say their are several links, I don't agree with that unless it is as a reference. It certainly isn't promotional in purpose unless they did something to warrant it.
