But... that doesn't mean I don't get excited about a bargain every now and then.
Here's a 2008-09 Topps T51 Murad printing plate I picked up off of eBay two summers ago for $12.50 (+ $2.75 shipping):
They say sometimes an image can jog your memory... which is exactly what happened when I saw this highlight from last night's Clippers-Timberwolves game:
I totally forgot that I purchased that card, after watching that highlight, I started to wonder if I owned any nice cards of Kevin Love. Then I remembered I purchased this graded printing plate.
Later, I looked up his stats and was shocked to see the year he's put together so far:
Points Per Game: 24.7 (5th in NBA)
Rebounds Per Game: 14.5 (2nd in NBA)
Minutes Per Game: 39.6 (1st in NBA)
Double-Doubles: 15 (1st in NBA)
Total Efficiency Points: 416 (3rd in NBA)
Efficiency Ranking: 27.73 (2nd in NBA)
Hopefully, he'll continue to produce and have a solid career. Then I'll be able to turnaround, sell this card, and possibly retire a few years earlier. Just kidding!
Now it's time for your feedback. Obviously, I haven't been keeping up with the NBA this season, so I'm interested in hearing your take on Mr. Love.
As a player, is he a minor star, semi star, star, or super star?
Legit or one year wonder?
Overrated or underrated?
Okay... I'm starving. Time to grab some dinner. Happy Saturday everyone. Sayonara!
