...and I'm not just talking about these size 19 shoes worn by Steven Adams...

...or the completion of the set of 95-96 Mystery Finest Borderless Refractors I've been working on since pulling the Ewing myself in 2016 -

...I'm talking about possibly the proudest achievement in my collecting life.


I obtained my first card from this set in November 2013. I was only going to pick up players I liked, with nice patches. I ended up grabbing more when available, and then figured I had to go for the lot.
The last one I needed was the worst one in the set. According to Worthpoint none had been sold since 2014! In my desperation I searched through really old breaks etc and got in contact with Blowout user irfuji, who said he'd have a look through his box and... voila! He had it! Of course as soon as I bought it one was listed on ebay and went for about $40 less than I paid, but that's life. This has been sitting at COMC since October and I finally had everything there brought over to me now.




So here it is...






The entire 70 card set of 2012-13 Flawless Patches (non-rookie):

In an ideal world these would all be in new one-touches, but I don't have enough...


A couple I have dupes of:

(as well as Aldridge and Hill)


So I am stoked. Long time coming!







Couple of other BIG things I haven't shown off before:

And finally, the biggest acquisition for me ever.




It's not basketball, but I did have to give up a pretty special basketball card to obtain it.



As a Kiwi, and a game worn enthusiast, there is no more desirable item than a game worn All Blacks jersey. This took me over a year to acquire, and was damn hard work. Eventually, I obtained the highlight of my collection:

(is currently away being framed)


Currently a hairyhappyfella in terms of my collection. Selling all those Jordan/Lebron autos years back has.... worked out I guess? Not financially, but I love what I own.

I bought the 1/1 version just to have because I didn't think I'd see the silver. Ludicrous.

Lucky for you mate there happens to be a Boston Celtics 1/1 collector on OZCT! @The Zodiac Collection

Let's just hope that big, big baby of a card was in Celtics green!

Nope, Orlando.

Great collection, Those Flawless patches are unreal at least 3 colors in every patch, the Chris Paul one is one of the best patches I’ve seen.
Initially I was just going for players I liked with nice patches, then later it was just anyone at any cost. The CP3 is my favourite, I also have one of his gamers that I can place it on perfectly :)
