Thoughts on Diamond Debut Tix
Have you guys ever seen this kind of card before? I haven’t seen it mentioned in any of the blogs so I’ll take my crack at it. It’s basically a ticket stub that’s framed into a card. The ticket is from the debut of that player and is numbered to 20 I believe. I’m not sure the value of these as there hasn’t been many that sold, but I recently came upon a Lincecum one on eBay that’s selling. This comes as an insert from the Topps ’52 remakes. I feel like this is just another gimmick along with hair and the like. Basically, these are supposed to be artifacts in the future as they are a part of baseball history if the guy actually turns out to be any good. what’s next? Framed, chewed sunflower seeds? Maybe some gum pressed between two plates and framed, or perhaps some fingernail clippings of your favorite player. What the hell Topps?! They took a ticket that basically 39,980 other people had and framed it. Look at the size of the picture of the player. He’s the freaking size of a tic tac. Stop doing dumb things.
Regardless, if it sells for $5, I will buy it haha (because I’m dumb). Anymore and it is not worth my money. By the way, the only one I found to sell was an Alex Gordon one for $27 + $3 shipping = $30 total. I would not pay $30 for a stupid framed ticket of their debut. Maybe if they autographed the ticket, then they would be on to something…autographed and also the ticket was made in silk print…and framed with an Allen & Ginter frame…and made of 24k gold…then maybe.
