It was funny to see all the stories about how Chris Paul got traded twice last week to a Los Angeles team ... he ended up in the Clippers. Speaking of the Clippers, they had a total team makeover from last season when they relied heavily on Eric Gordon (when healthy) and Blake Griffin to do much of the scoring. The addition of Chris Paul, Chauncey Billups and some other pieces should make the 'other' team in LA pretty exciting.
I put up a year end piece that shows the prices of Topps & Bowman baseball case prices and how they are selling on eBay at the current time. It kind of got me thinking about the rip & flip idea (instead of selling the boxes un-opened) so we'll talk about that strategy a bit.
We talk about some sets that have come out recently too. I like 2011 Gold Standard Football for the same reasons I like the basketball product - it has a nice theme and every card sticks to the 'gold' theme. We actually pulled another real gold card (2/2) in our football break courtesy of Panini. Another set came out recently - 2011 Bowman Sterling Football is an interesting set because it really only contains rookies.
