A Prime Cut of Bison.

Matt Kemp autographs are hard to come by, as prices are high and the market doesn't have a lot of new supply flowing in as Kemp's autographs the last 2-3 years have all been in redemption form. When a live signature hits the market and the price remains reasonable, I have to jump as a Bison Collector.

My latest addition is a sweet piece I landed for a steal. For the price of a blaster, my 11th Kemp cardboard John Hancock arrived after a tumultuous journey. It hails from 2011 Panini Playoff Prime Cuts, and is the Century Silver Signatures Gold parallel numbered out of just 5 (4/5 for my copy).

The card had yet to arrive and after inquiring with the seller I was informed that it had shown up at their place, sent back by the post office loose in a plastic baggie and with the bubble mailer ripped. The seller said the card wasn't damaged and offered to either re-send it or give me a refund. You can guess which option I chose.


  1. Adding a Kemp to personal collection is a good thing. Nice pick up

  2. ...I was expecting steak.

    ...and there is no steak.

    You owe me steak, Zakwin.

  3. To be honest, I'm surprised the market for Kemp isn't showing signs of deflating.

    either way - it's a great card.

  4. Thanks guys!

    Penguin- It is indeed!

    Roy- Whenever we complete our trade, I'll include some. Let's complete our trade.

    Oscar- They have come down a bit, but usually there aren't any deals to be had.
