Since this is becoming more of a drag these days to keep up with, and hardly anyone posting, I'm now gearing up for making my final purchase(s) to end the flip quest. With all the items I have gathered as well as cash, if I were to stop today, I would conservatively have $3,500 plus the goodies in the keepers heading when all is said and done. Not bad, considering what I started out with :)

Here is a package I received that is going to be revealed at the end of this whole thing.

I wonder what it is?!?!?! ;)


  1. Considering the corner of the box, I wonder if it's damaged.

  2. I've been following this thing for awhile and I'm impressed. The cards pictured are for TRADE/SELL?

    1. Thanks! That is correct - everything is for sale / trade. The only things left are what were from the past few posts, or in the latest list on the flip quest tracker page.

    2. I'm primarily interested in Texas Rangers stuff and sometimes Will Clark or catchers.
