I made sure that the last Snell of the year was something good though. I ended up picking up one of the cards that I skipped earlier in the summer due to cost. There are expensive Snell autographs, but it seems that at some point they always come down a bit. At worst, if you are patient a copy of the card will fly under the radar on an Ebay auction. I have never set a ceiling on how much I will spend on a Snell autograph, but there are non-starters.
Most of the Buy It Nows and auctions when this card fist came out were over $30. That's a non-starter for this card. I did not pay it, and I ended up saving some money.
This is from Definitive, which is one of those Topps brands that all blends together in my world with things like Tribute an Museum Collection. I am sure there are others that I am not thinking about as a truck through a post at 5:30 on a Sunday morning. The cards are on thicker stock, have some sort of jersey or patch swatch, an have a low print run.
The backs of the cards are look the same too.
It's like a generic form letter that Topps attaches to all of the aforementioned card brands.
It has been a fun year of collecting Snell autographs, but I am definitely ready to move onto something else. I have started drafting my end of the year post, and I am definitely going to pass over repeating this sort of project again.
