    Hahaha not that great, I wish. It more about what I paid for what all I got. But if anyone has experience with grading cards please let me know, anything helps.

    I have an absurd amount of experience with all aspects of trading cards across the board, I can even recommend which grading service would be better depending on what the card is....what were you able to pull??

    Not trying to be a Debbie downer, but isn't the trading card market sort of in a slump right now?

    The fucking thing crashed harder tehn the '08 Market. All of the companies started making a million different types of limited serial numbered cards and started putting autos and jersey patch cards in like every pack and totally dilluted the market. I once pulled a Kobe/Jordan Dual Jersey card serial numbered to 50, when I pulled it, beckett Value was $1,200...i'd be lucky to get a hundred for it today. However with that said, there will aways be certain cards that will be worth money, the card to get. Every star player has that one rookie card that is THE one to have. Low serial numbered rookie cards are the only reason to collect these days.

    Edit: And proceeding to have them graded and getting a grade higher than a 9

    Four stops and four pairs of shoes today.

    My size, but I don't know if they're me.

    Identical pairs of shoes with identical wear but a half size and two widths apart. Leather on these is bizarre. I've never worked with anything that gobbled up reno quite like these. maybe they were just super dry.

    Bought these for my fiancee and they fit her perfect but she thinks they're for hippies. She's wrong. Anyone here with size 7 women in your life?

    I koped 2 pairs from Khaki of Carmel 2 years ago, I think. They are pretty well made for Agave. They come with canvas pockets which is a great detail to have on jeans. But I ripped holes in the pockets after 6 months of wear. But still if you've gotten them for cheap, they are great for wear. They don't resell for shit though.

    Also, don't ever machine wash them. My wife accidently washed them in the washer but not tumble dried, they ended up with vertical folding streaks in them. I think the fabric was roped dyed for easy fading so they got caught in a folding position in the washer and ended up ruining them. Oh well, I wear these to work, now.

    I just rip them off. Works great.

    It's been kind of a so so thrifting day, but this made it all worthwhile...

    I almost bought that jacket yesterday. Fit me pretty nicely but I just wasn't digging the hard 3.


    And I'm a moron because I passed on this jacket yesterday too. Should have looked that shit up in store..
