Ten years, The Seventh


Last night, I found out a card I have - and one I'm not particularly attached to - is worth a small fortune.

I've been a fan of Max Scherzer since he broke into the bigs, and at some point I either pulled or traded for a gold parallel of his 2008 Topps Update rookie. It's sat in my binders ever since, and with card prices the way they are I decided to check and see what it's going for these days...and needless to say I almost ran to my binders to throw mine on there in hopes of scoring a major windfall to my card budget. (If/when I sell the gold parallel, I've still got the base version which is all that matters to me.)

Anywho, that Chicago Tribune card page I posted in my last giveaway is still up for grabs if anyone wants it, as well as this Rennie Stennett disc (with a small crease on the right side that didn't show up in the scan) and everything you'll find below.
