Check out my recap and commentary of the Jake Shields vs. Ryan Ford fight. I also use this opportunity to show off my UFC cards and memorabilia for each fighter.
Jake Shields is from my home town of San Francisco. I was pretty disappointed after his loss against Lombard and after the UFC cut him. Luckily, he landed pretty quickly with the WSOF and put on a submission and grappling clinic against Ryan Ford.
One of the best things about Shields is that he keeps pressing and moving forward. Even against monsters like Ford and Lombard, Shields looks like he has no fear. In the end, it was a rear naked choke submission. Congrats to Jake Shields and I’m hoping for more fights to come.
I’m excited to show off this huge relic lot that I purchased from Ebay. The cards are between 2010 and 2013 Topps sets. Some are from Bloodlines, Finest, and Main Event.
In part 1, we had a few GSPs, Lyoto Machida, Johny Hendricks, Cung Le, and Phil Davis cards. These are great for autographs, especially the mat relic cards. The gear relic cards tend to bleed. Overall really exciting part 1.
Total price for the entire lot was $61.
I’m happy to show off these latest purchases. One of my favorite aspects of MMA cards is the mat and fighter relic cards. They add a real life dimension to the collection. The highlights from this lot were Rich Franklin, Jose Aldo, Phil Davis, Carlos Condit and a dual relic.
Total price for this lot was $10.
I’m showing off a pretty big lot today. This is from the 2013 Topps UFC Knockout line. The lot includes autograph relics of Nick Diaz, Nate Diaz, Cung Le, Chris Leben, Phil Davis and Demetrious Mighty Mouse Johnson. The total Ebay cost was $34 including shipping. Another nice group of cards to add to my collection.
