PSA’s “Flow Lines” Issue: Your Thoughts

Plus Bernie the bat-flipper

I’ve spent most of my free time lately going through the Vermont Collection. My guess is I’ve spent 20 hours on it already, and I’ll end up somewhere between 60 and 80 hours when all is said and done.

So while I didn’t leave myself much time for an essay for today, I did want to share some comments from my video about PSA’s “flow lines” video. In case you missed it, this was the video:

in quick summary: PSA introduced new slabs in May, and they are frequently found to have what appear to be very visible cracks in the plastic.

So, you tell me:

Card From the Vermont Collection

For all the old heads who claim no one did bat-flipping until recently, and no respectable player would ever do a bat-flip:

I’m pro-bat flipping, for what it’s worth. I wouldn’t do it myself, but it’s fun and baseball needs more fun. What about you?

Do you like bat-flipping?

YouTube Comment Of The Week

I’ve received a lot of weird comments over my 3 years doing YouTube, so I’m not sure where this ranks but it’s pretty high. At least it’s (I think) a compliment!

Upcoming Videos

My 9,000 subscriber livestream celebration is Monday at 7pm eastern time! I hope you’ll be there.

I think the fake Michael Jordan PMG saga comes to an end this week, and I’ll do a recap when that happens.

I think I’ll have an Attic Find Friday this week!

Channel Highlights From the Past Week

Another week with only 3 videos. Very unusual for me.

I opened a 1987 Fleer Glossy set to see if I had any potential PSA 10s:

I ended up finding the Glossy Update set on Saturday, and opened that as well. All of the cards looked minty except the Maddux:

Yuck

My Pickup Of The Week

I have some doubts about the authenticity of this autograph, but I couldn’t resist. It’ll be off to PSA this summer.

How AI is changing the rapidly-growing world of sports cards: you can always tell when a non-collector is writing an article about the hobby. I think this is a pretty good article, but there are telltale signs.

The original color-match variations: it’s way earlier than you think.
