More David PriceJuly 6, 2008 at 1:59 am | Posted in Minor Leagues, My Cards, Rays | 2 Comments
I recently wrote about David Price and showcased my collection of his cards. Today I happily added a fifth autographed Price card to my collection when I received a 2007 Donruss Elite Extra Edition “School Colors” card numbered to only 50 that I recently won on eBay:
As you can see, it is a sweet looking card, and I am thrilled to own it. It actually has a very shiny, refractor-like surface that you can’t really see in the scan. I really like the cards from Donruss Elite Extra Edition that I have, although they are all David Price cards. The quality of the cards is making me think that Donruss-Playoff should be awarded a license to start producing baseball cards again (the Elite Extra Edition set is ostensibly a college sports set).
The thing that amazes me about the card is the bargain price that I paid for it. There are only 50 of these cards in existence and I was able to buy it for about one-third of the price that some less rare 2008 Bowman Chrome refractor autographs of Price are selling for, and only slightly more than I paid for the “Turn of the Century” Elite Extra Edition card that is numbered to 500. I’m not sure why this card isn’t in higher demand, but I’m glad that I was able to get it for less than I expected!
