Cards I Shouldn't Of Bought On eBay Last Week Pt. 7

This is the last one, I promise.

2007 Upper Deck SPx Nick Markakis yellow printing plate
My first Markakis 1 of 1, and it was less than $10.


  1. Congrats on the 1/1. I bought my first Hanley 1/1 plate and got it for less than 15. I wonder why printing plates are so undervalued.

  2. I don't think this should fall under "cards I shouldn't have bought on eBay". For under $10 you clearly should have bought this. Marriage be damned.

    It's cool owning a 1/1 isn't it? I have a Sizemore printing plate from Finest. I think they are so cheap because, even though they are 1/1, they seem to be all over the damn place.

  3. I've never pulled (or seen) a printing plate in real life. Are they heavier?? Or are they just basically a template for the card?

  4. Well, I let it go all week, but the former English teacher in me can't let it go any more: It's "should have," not "should of." Motherscratcher corrected you above without mentioning it.

    And yes, printing plate 1/1s are decently cheap for the non-superstars.
