Exquisite set completion #2!

Not as exciting as the 05/06 Exquisite Rookies completion, but still a happy achievement nonetheless! Here is the completed set:


08.03.2009

Another delayed update! Cards aren't coming in quick and fast like usual, so hence the lack of frequency in updating my site.

Not too much to add, there are only a few cards that have come in.


22.01.2009

Happy New Year! First update for 2 months.

Things getting busy at work, so yet another quick update:

Another one on the way as well!


22.11.2008

Exams finally over thank goodness.

A little bit has been happening in the past couple of weeks. Received the following Boguts:

Quite a few more things coming in the next few weeks, so keep tuning in! (So much for drying up due to poor AUD...)


07.11.2008

Another week gone and only one package arrived, not a bad one though:

Bogut and the Bucks are off to a pretty decent 3-2 start, lets hope they keep it up and make the playoffs this year!


29.10.2008

Long time, no update:

This is the first update for one month. This is partly due to me starting a new job, which has been taking up most of my time... I have updated the site sporadically in between homepage updates though.

A new set collection was started in the past month. The set began with two huge lots of 15 (base and rookies):

Introducing the 07/08 Exquisite set (well the start of it...)

Due to the falling AUD, the incoming cards in the next few months will dry up :( But I hope to bring some more goodies shortly (just in smaller supply)!


25.09.2008

Big Updates:

Well, it has been a long time since I updated the front page of the website. A lot of changes had been happening behind the scenes, but not much in the way of news items.

Since my last update, I have received a few more Bogut Exquisites, received some key cards to my sets and moved my site to a new home :)

In the way of new cards, we have the following highlights:

The second one is in fact graded BGS 9 (hence the blurry scan). The final one is by far my favourite patch!

Some Ultimate Autos!! Only 2 more to complete the 03/04 set.

Some Exquisites!!

And finally some Boguts to round out the news item :)


10.06.2008

New Signature:

New Boguts:

That's all for now! Although also added a Bogut/Shaq Dual Auto 1/1 and some more autographics to my collection.


25.05.2008

Selling some Boguts! Please check the pdf for a list of Boguts I have for sale with prices!!


15.05.2008

Another minor update!

That makes 9 Bogut Exquisite RCs (1 more incoming!)

Here are some Exquisites and Ultimates to finish off with:

Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol and Yao Ming!


24.04.2008

Long time no update! After taking a break from collecting (only getting a few cards in), I'm back :)

Here are some Boguts:

Also received 5 other Bogut Exquisites and one Premium Patch over the break:

That takes the total to 8 Exquisites and 11 Premium Patches (with 1 more incoming)!

Here are some Rookie Cards to finish off with:

Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol and Yao Ming!


05.12.2007

Set completion!! The 05/06 Upper Deck Exquisite Rookie Collection is now 100% complete.

David Lee is the final part of the puzzle. Here is the completed set:

Ultimate Signatures: 03/04 Amare and TMac, 05/06 Dwighty.


27.11.2007

Exams over so its time to do some scanning! Plenty of new arrivals in the past month.

New arrivals:

Part 1: The big stuff - No words required :)

Part 2: Michael Jordan and Luol Deng Exquisites, Mario Lemieux, Noah Welch, Marc-Andre Fleury and Michel Ouellet The Cup.

Part 3: Upper Deck Game Jerseys - Garnett, Duncan, Shaq and Iverson + Ewing 03/04 Ultimate Signatures. All hail the Aussie Dollar ;)

Things which arrived but can't put here for space reasons include:

  • Chronology Lettermen Autos of Barry, Baylor, Greer, Lucas, Sharman and Thurmond
  • Plenty of Exquisite base from 04/05, 05/06 and 06/07
  • Thabo Sefolosha, Randy Foye and Mardy Collins 06/07 Exquisite RCs

  • Bogut/Frye 05/06 Trilogy Dual Patch Auto 2/5
  • Bogut/Shaq 05/06 Luxury Box Dual Auto

Needless to say, the mailman has been rather busy!

Site update: Tradelist is now completely up-to-date!


30.10.2007

OK, so much for no more posting, here we go! A bit of an Ozcards flavour with 4 big cards coming from members!

New arrivals today:

Larry Bird and Scottie Pippen Ultimate Signatures (thanks Stupidclerk!)

Devin Harris (thanks Mavsman!) and Shelden Williams Exquisite Rookies. Mavs also sent a JRich Exquisite base (not shown).

4 for the Greatest 50 Autos collection (the above Bird and Pippen) and Malone and Wilkens (thanks Ruckers!)


27.10.2007

Probably my last update for a month as I have uni exams coming up :( But then again, some big stuff coming in soon!

Fixed up a couple of things with the site:

  • Changed the Aussie Collections - added Andrew Gaze.
  • Modified the Andrew Bogut section removing the ugly statistics page at the beginning.
  • Changed the Set Collection - adding a "no scans" link for those who don't want all images loading!

Now for the cool stuff! New arrivals:

Major Exquisite additions:

Steve Nash, Dirk Nowitzki, Mickael Pietrus, Adam Morrison RC, Michael Jordan, Andrea Bargnani and Rajon Rondo

Major Ultimate Signatures additions:

03/04 Set: Jason Kidd, Magic Johnson - 05/06 Set: Julius Erving, Tracy McGrady and Vince Carter

One for the Greatest 50 Collection (in addition to the Magic and Erving above) and one for my Pittsburgh Penguins collection:

Nate Archibald Chronology Letterman and MVP Sidney Crosby The Cup! Also included a Bogut I forgot to post in the last message!


02.10.2007

37 Exquisites arrived today...

Here are the highlights:

Exquisite additions: Sasha Pavlovic, Shaun Livingston, JR Smith, Andre Iguodala, Andrew Bynum and Gerald Green!

That means only 2 more for the 05/06 Exquisite Rookies set (Chris Paul and David Lee).


25.09.2007

A bit of a busy two weeks. More set fillers coming in left, right and centre. A new set chase has started too (03/04 Ultimate Signatures).

Here are the highlights from the past couple of weeks:

Andrew Bogut Topps Black Printing Plate 1/1. That means I have all 4! and some more Bogut Ultimate Patches.

Exquisite additions: T.J. Ford RC, Vince Carter, Sebastian Telfair, Salim Stoudamire and LeBron James.

The first few Ultimate Signatures from 03/04: Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade, John Stockton and Dennis Rodman.

Also some Ultimate Signatures from 05/06: Gerald Green, Dennis Rodman, Kevin Garnett and Danny Granger.

Received more cards in the past couple of weeks, but I can't fit all of them in the homepage.

On a sader note, the Bogut Logoman pictured below is now gone. I decided to sell it with a heavy heart and focus more on my set collections!


13.09.2007

Started collecting again and many things will be arriving over the next few weeks, many big things...

In the meantime, here are a couple of Exquisite additions, including my second Bogut Exquisite RC and a Josh Smith Exquisite RC with a fantastic patch:

I also received 2 legend autos, a David Robinson Ultimate Signatures and a Walt Frazier Trilogy Autofocus:


30.08.2007

1st update in over 6 months. Took a bit of a break from collection, but am back now!!

Quite a few things arrived while I was away, mainly Exquisite base:


27.02.2007

2 Bogut 1/1s arrived today, I think its worth a couple of scans.

Pretty busy day, won another 1/1 plate off the bay. This time the Yellow Pristine plate (to go with my Black plate). You may actually notice that despite having the plates, I am yet to get a common. Wierd =/

Decided to start collecting 94/95, 95/96 and 96/97 Topps Finest Refractors to go with my complete 93/94 set. Would also like the 93/94 Upper Deck Triple Double Hologram Set. Please let me know if you have any and will trade/sell.

I love holidays! Website ready to go! After a pretty quiet week on the winning auctions front (only won a Portraits parallel card), I won quite a bit today.

The best of which is a 1/1 Topps First Row Black Printing Plate! Others include 2 Sage Premium Gold Autos /50 and a Topps First Row Dual Jersey/Shirt 47/140.

Today's mail - 1 package. And not for me.

Playoff matchups have been decided! The Bucks finish 8th and get too take on the Pistons. Going to be tough :(


19.04.2006

Today's mail - 8 packages. And all for me! What a great week!

2 Autos, 7 Game-Useds and 3 Graded cards makes Lippo a very happy man :) A big thanks to Matt (twentysomething) for providing me with most of my GUs including 4 new ones! Also received 2 large Global Priority mailers from Colin @ ncwsupplies. Thanks mate!

Received a winning UD performance clause redemption card from Matt! Unfortunately, my other performance clause redemption for an auto jersey card was a failure - the last Regular Season game for the Bucks was played today and Bogut's season high # rebounds was only 17 :( Well short of the 20 required. Oh well, can't win them all! Another highlight of the day is an Upper Deck Sweet Shot Sweet Sigs wood auto. It looks very nice!
