...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.

Loving the WIlt there mate, rare as Hen's teeth, which was the worst scrub in that Flawless patch set you had to chase after?

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.

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 :)
