  1. As I continue to read every single article from CBC, and analyze all of my cards, I want to thank you Ryan and Mike and the staff! For a detailed orientated information regarding football cards. I’ve learned so much from CBC and CCW! Today, after reading the 2013 Panini Prestige Short Print Variation, I learned that I have a Eddie Lacy #230 short print that lists in Beckett for $12.00. Although this amount is nowhere close to purchasing my Lambhorgini! LOL, it is still invigorating to know that I have such a card. In closing, the entire staff at CBC/CCW, has made this a fun and new exciting hobby for my whole family and it has brought us closer!

    Thank you,
