I'm still just starting to dip my toes back into the eBay game. I decided a couple years ago to stop set collecting and just focus on my team and player sets. And to be honest I really have just been mainly focusing on Robin. I've been pretty selective with my purchases over the last 8 months or so and have just now started to finally find some the cards I missed last year.
I ended up picking up Robin's 2017 Topps Update Commemorative MVP Medallion card for a great price. The last one I bid on went for about 10 bucks so I was pleased to win this card for about a buck and a half plus shipping.
The first thing I noticed when I opened the package is just how impressively heavy this card is. I have a feeling you would have no problem picking this card out of a box. This card commemorates Robin's 1982 MVP award and it might as well commemorate his 1989 one as well, because he didn't get two cards in the set. I'm not a huge fan of manufactured relics, but they do have a place in my collection, and this card is very well done. There are also numbered variations of the set.
