Topps isn’t going to be doing baseball cards anymore, it’s going to be some new company and that sucks. City-data.com is a nice place for everything you could think of if you are interested in getting into the minds of random people on the internet. I have found it nice reading from people smarter than me and getting their opinions on topics. I wonder if since Topps isn’t releasing new cards anymore, all the older ones value should increase. Haven’t got many watchers or bids, that’s what I am after, and this week has been nothing with the 5 cards I have in auction. Three Derek Jeters and two are Topps Gem Mint 10s, so I was wanting like at least $50 for those but who knows what it’ll end it. Ended the auction early on them two Gem Mint 10 Derek Jeters because no one had put bids in yet and I got nervous. I started 3 auctions for this Saturday and tomorrow I’ll start 5 new 7 day auctions for next Friday.
Just got back from Another’s Man Treasure, my parents store here in small town Connecticut. I have my cards there, about half of my cards are at the store. All graded cards are just $50! It will be interesting to see how Robinhood’s stock does now, will they become a short term pump and dump or trend up? If they get new crypto coins, that would be interesting, if it’s existing coins then what is the damn wait? I would be interested in seeing XRP on Robinhood but soon, because crypto is trending up. They are going to come out with wallets feature but that news was from some random girl on TikTok and that’s not a good source at all. I didn’t hear about it anywhere else.
Went through all my old screenshots, wow did I have so much saved from over the years with different phones. I never thought about how moving north for crypto miners would also be a good idea since it’s colder and would keep the miners cool. Current update on burning of Ethereum, it’s at 100,000 ether since EIP 1559 has been started. The less Ethereum there is in total, the more valuable it becomes. Onlyfans, an app that is used mainly for sex work, but I think other things have come out to say no more porn on the app. That ruins so much for the content creators on there that were getting money from it and so my prediction is they will just use crypto. The app said it was because the banks didn’t want to be in the sex business, but I think crypto would probably be okay.
Litecoin is cool, I always thought of it like digital silver, with Bitcoin being digital gold. Ethereum is sort of in its own lane with on much is connected to it. Budweiser is in the NFT world now, they bought an NFT for their Twitter profile photo for $26,000 and then a Ethereum domain “beer.eth” for $100,000. I recently joined my 5th discord server, this one more active crypto and no hate against Boxden, but this crypto group is just better. It’s called the “Incubator”. Visa bought a cryptopunk NFT for $150,000, that’s so crazy but then again someone paid $1.3 million for rock NFT.
As of today Robinhood hasn’t released wallets for crypto coins like they said but could be all timed for their stock they have now. Probably once their stock starts to trend down and they need a boost, they will announce it once get and then after that take months for an update. It’s a huge deal because honestly that takes a lot of great crypto coders to turn your whole investment app to have wallets. They will probably charge fees themselves because they know crypto already comes with zero fees: so beware of that.
Two cards left this week, both BGS and to the same person, a Derek Jeter Mint 9 & a Albert Pujols Topps Now Gem Mint 9.5. Plus two today, an Aaron Judge PSA 10 and a 1968 Topps of some random dude, PSA 8. Bought a card that I would have loved to have as a kid but didn’t know existed, a 1999 Blueline Alfonso Soriano Rookie card but it’s in the Norwich Navigators uniform. That’s the local team around here in the minor leagues, It’s a nice add to my corner at the store. Another thing in crypto news is that people can pay for their mortgage for their homes in crypto now. Sold my 70th card this morning, I keep track in an Excel sheet, plus files on computer and then I have them all in my Alt Portfolio.
Be a nice human.
