I now have a Strata

...and I got it without using tricky Strata-gems...
This joke is so lame that I'm already ashamed and I'm seriously considering to delete it...

But the important thing is that a few hours ago I won an auction that I considered almost impossible to win, especially for the price I set as maximum offer.

Since I would be the first to doubt about someone bragging about how good he's been at snagging a cool card for a ridicolously low price, this time I'm going to show all the proofs of the great new pickup..

As the title clearly suggests, this time I got a nice Topps Strata from 2015, the first I own from this high end set, and I can't wait to discover what's the game in which the player wore the jersey featured in the card.
As far as I understood, the relics in this set are not just the regular "event worn" jerseys, but come with an MLB authentic hologram sticker, that should also help track down the afore mentioned game.

The card has a pretty big jersey piece, with two pinstripes, so no sick patches here, but still I consider it a solid hit. The player is also been pretty popular during the end of the last MLB season.

So without further adue, here's the card, no not only the card, but the eBay window showing the card and the final price as well. I only covered the seller's name for obvious reasons.

At first I tought that the auction's title had some spelling errors in it, being the name of the player not the easiest around. But no, apparently there weren't many collectors willing to add this card to their collection. And as usual, I'm more than happy to help the seller avoiding the re-listing of a beautiful card!

What do you think about this hit? Do you like the product?

I know I've been posting a lot today, but today I feel incredibly inspired!
So sorry for the spam!

Best regards to all and keep collecting!

  1. Don't know much about Strata but nice card for $0.99. What do you do about postage?

    1. Hi Matthew, I followed Jeroen's wise advise and opened a mailbox at They offer a mailbox service, that costs 2 dollars for every card or small lots of cards they receive on your behalf. They can keep them as long as you require an international shipment to your adress. I think it's very useful
