Last week, I showed off a Roberto Clemente bat relic numbered 6/25. It was my 15th bat relic of the Hall of Famer. I stated that I would do a reverse box of 2014 National Treasures this year and will likely have a lot of fun tracking down these high end cards. The
One such player that has some great looking Cut Auto Booklets /10 is Hall of Famer Willie Stargell. Known to the fanbase as Pops for his leadership role on the 1979 World Series Championship team, Stargell has a great signature and for the most part it's also very affordable.
I've seen a handful of Stargell's booklets from National Treasures end up in the $125+ range, but I was fortunate to win this auction for only $81 delivered. Now you're probably thinking $81 is a lot to spend on one card when you're trying to do a reverse box....and you're right.
I'm currently way over budget at $145 on two cards that my budget for said cards was $106. I have a lot of ground to make up as I accumulate the remaining 6 cards of my reverse box. Honestly though, I can't complain about having a HOF cut auto and jumbo bat relic numbered /10 along with a Clemente bat relic numbered /25 for the prices paid though. I know it sounds crazy to think two cards for $145, but for these two beloved Pittsburgh icons, that's a great deal.
With 3 more guaranteed autographs, and a combination of gem, relic, auto left I know that I will be able to complete the remaining 6 cards for less than $280. I am allowed to spend $46 per card to finish under the allowed amount.
