I got another printing plate today. This means I’ve gone from zero one-of-ones to three in just a couple months. Which just goes to show how common and far from rare they are. Individually of course, they are very rare. But if you want a “one-of-one” you can get one easily. This is a Chris Denorfia 2006 Flair Showcase. Denorfia played 67 games for the Cincinnati Reds from 2005 to 2006, so it’s a good card for my team collection. He has not really made a hobby impact or an impact in the big leagues, but only a few do. He’ll be headed to spring training with the San Diego Padres and hopefully he will see some time on their big league roster this year.
He only has one standout item on eBay right now and that’s 2006 Upper Deck Auto-Facts printing plate. The seller wants $49.95. I don’t think it will sell. I got my plate for much cheaper than that.
