The newest SCP Auctions event launched this week with some items that defy the imagination — items that you probably wouldn’t imagine them to still exist, let alone be up for grabs.
Some of them, such as this 2013 Fresno State Aaron Judge game-used jersey, open with more modest prices of $4,000, while college classics such as a Lew Alcindor game-used UCLA jersey is already at $44,288 after less than a day of active bidding.
But the leader in the clubhouse among the more than 900 lots? It’s a baseball card.
The Trading Cards are back — and this time they are in packs.
Long-time readers of The Buzz probably remember California-based illustrator Cuyler Smith whose Trading Cards bring the stars of the reel world (memorable sports movies) to real life using nods to memorable sports card designs from the past.
He’s back with a new show — and a new wave of cardboard — arriving on Friday.
What: 2016 Topps Rocky 40th Anniversary trading cards Arrives: Wednesday (Aug. 31) via Topps.com. Set basics: 330 cards per set.
The Basics: Topps has teased a Wednesday arrival for a set examining all of the Rocky films that will apparently have inserted autographs from Sylvester Stallone. The standard cards appear to use the design from the Rocky II set previously made by Topps in 1979. Update: The set will consist of 330 cards covering six films with a price of $59.99. Autographed cards will be limited to just 10 copies apiece with four different signed cards found one in every 125 sets.

The National Sports Collectors Convention is nearly here and the months of preparation are culminating in the show of all shows for sports collectors the next five days in Atlantic City, N.J.
There will be plenty to see, plenty to do and plenty to buy and Buzz has been watching the developments the whole way. We’ll have galleries of images from the show floor and a few nuggets here and there in the coming days but there’s already been plenty written leading up to the show that you can all find right here.
Here’s a rundown of all past NSCC stories here on The Buzz …
When you think of Sylvester Stallone‘s career, one character probably comes to mind first.
The memorabilia left over from that big-screen boxer’s multi-film career are among countless lots being sold next week as Stallone has chosen Heritage Auctions to sell pieces from throughout his career. It’s a collection of memorabilia that spans from the first Rocky films and includes Rambo, The Expendables and plenty more.
