Even though I picked up a High Tek autograph of Fernando awhile back it was always my intention to pick up a copy of his Five Star autograph for my collection. Of all the autograph cards that Fernando had come out in 2014 this was the one I really wanted and was determined to acquire.
With 199 copies (not including the rainbow parallels) I knew it wouldn't be that much of a hassle to get my hands on one. The question was how much it would cost me and if I was comfortable with it. Most of the closed sales on eBay seemed to trend towards the $25-$30 mark with some going over that. A little too rich for my blood so I had to wait till one of my high bids stuck at the end of any particular auction I chose to bid on. 3 weeks passed and each auction I was in on I lost out in the waning seconds. I knew sooner or later a card would slip through the cracks and that is what happened when I won this card for a little over $20 with none of it out of pocket.
Once in hand the card became my new favorite Fernando card (as expected) which makes my High Tek card available for trade if I haven't already committed it to a trade or a contest.
As always Five Star does not disappoint.
