UPDATE: We have a winner as dayf successfully figured out that Mr. X is really Dr. James Beckett, founder of the Beckett Price Guides.
I was inspired when I was at Half Priced Books last week and came upon this:
Is there any more humorous writing than an out of date price guide? $7.48 for a 20+ year old guide seems a little crazy. It's still a good source of resource information about various sets but still...Turning it over, I came face to face with Mr. X:
I realized that I don't think I ever actually had seen Dr. James before and so I wondered if anyone else knew him at first glance.
So congratulations to dayf, who is boycotting Topps 2012/spending his money on better things but he seems to have found a way to get about 1/3 of the set in one move. Well played!
I've been trying to trade away my 2012 Topps cards and while I've had some success things have sort of dried up. So I'll try the contest route instead to rid myself of these troublesome cards.
If you are interested in winning these cards plus a jersey or auto from a player of your favorite team be the first to leave me a comment telling me who Mr. X is.
