Default Do You Vintage Guys Like The Pretty Colors and Shiny Cards At All???

Hello, hope all is well...

Look, modern is a joke, no question...Gimmicks, manufactured scarcity, the list goes on...I do vintage mostly, but have a couple modern collections as well...

I have a 2016 Cubs collection and just completed the Topps Chrome Carl Edwards Jr. Refractor Rainbow with 1 Printing Plate...

What do you guys think, do you appreciate modern cards at all, or is it vintage all the way...

I also listed this bad boy on EBay at a ridiculously high rate if anyone wants to get a chuckle. haha

Also, if anyone happens to know who has any of the 3 remaining plates, I am interested in snagging those for the full run. Shoot me a message with any info, thanks...

Although I only collect sets and just do the base Topps and Heritage sets now to keep my run going, I enjoy looking at the new stuff including the many innovative issues or oddities that come out each year, and certainly don't think those who do collect such stuff think of it as a joke. Different tastes and different budgets make the hobby interesting to me.

Some folks corner the market on 52 Bartiromes, some 63 Floods and some 2016 Topps Carl Edwards Refractor Rainbow Chrome plates :-)

personally...I have very little appreciation for the new shiny stuff. the copied styles of cards from cards past...so unoriginal! the manufactured scarcities...such a bad investment in m opinion. The crazy high pack prices...you can't just buy a few packs for fun without spending nice dinner money. The fact that most of these cards will be mint forever.

I do like the topps "moment" idea...if thats what they are called...but so expensive!!!!

I do like the signed rookie cards. But not the refractichrome 1 of 0 die cut gold parallel invisible ones.

Basically, I just try to get a basic signed rookie of my favorite players. Oh yeah, and once in a while, if the Wal-Mart line is too long, I might buy a random pack.

Not a big fan of the NEW shiny cards. I do like making shiny versions of old cards. Here are a few I have made, sorry for the horrible phone pictures.

I mainly do it for fun, I sometime sell to friends but not very often. Here is a link to some stuff I posted on here. I like making the custom boxes/packaging the most.

Short and simple, you the man...

Chasing fancy colors and completing rainbows seems like something my 11 year old sister would have been doing when we were younger. hahahhaha
