angel-415 is not a collector is a seller in Puerto Rico. He used to collect Mike Piaza, but not any more, most of the Juan Gonzalez rare inserts he bought on ebay end up in my collection, if you check on his bid history you'll find out that he also buys Ivan Rodriguez, Bernie Williams among other Puertorrican players.
He also knows of the existance of this web page. :)

Don't you end up buying most of his Juan cards he wins?? So when you bid against him aren't you just driving up the price on yourself?? Please tell me how that makes sense??

As I mentioned before, he is a seller in Puerto Rico, and I I'm not the only Juan collector in the Island, he has some other collectors on his list, one of the toughest is a guy named Pedro who also collects Juan, and don't know how to use a computer and buy most of his cards at local shops and from sellers like Nestor (angel-415). So, when Pedro request a card I have to outbid him.:mad: For Pedro is personal, he had never seen my collection, and I never seen his, but I'd heard that he have some of the first 1/1 Masterpiece, and that he paid thousands for it.
Remember I said most of his rare inserts, not all of them!;)

Finally outbid by jrph56, another boricua seller.:(

By the way Roberto, did you inherit a small fortune recently?? Because you are bidding on a ton of stuff and paying huge prices.

You witness the downside of a successful fan site. It encourages other to participate more, costing you more in the long run.

Am i misssing a cheaper way to get the cards I need? If you know of some way to do it, please let me know, since you are right this is costing me so much lately. Isn't Juan's cards suppossed to go cheaper since he is out of the league? Crazy huh! :confused:

Shakingit is a guy that lives about 20 miles from me. He comes to my house once in a while to visit as he worked with me when he was just out of school. He now owns a fuel tanker business. His collection is mostly new stuff and all just thrown in boxes. He buys on a whim just so I think we have something to talk about. His 15 yr old daughter got raped just before Thanksgiving and he has been in the dumps. I have spent more then the normal time with him trying to get his moral up. He knows I’m a little disinterested in collecting after seeing what Sam has and I not even being aware that he existed. His collection has reached what I had hoped a lifetime of collecting would accomplish. Rich knows I watch ebay for Ted auto cards and is trying to get me ignited again I’m sure. He would not bid on a card that I asked him not too so if you need one that he has bid on let me know. (I asked him to bid off on the Gold/Silver 97 Pinn Xpress metal cards that are on ebay, as I like to use them for office paperweights and plan on getting them). He won’t join here, as we are nothing but old men needing to get out more according to him.

Prices seem to be higher now but they are normally higher early in the year and drop later, after the season.

Losing Kyle as a Juan collector was a great loss as a representative of us Gonzalez collectors in the hobby!

To think that Sam has 67 different 1998 Topps Tek Diffractors and between Rob, Mike, Roberto, Kevin and myself we have a total of 23 different ones. I'm so depressed :( The chances of coming close to collecting that many is zip! There isn't a diffractor on Ebay for any player at this time and only a Derick Bell on all of Beckett. The opportunity to find one is much harder to come accross then the dollars to obtain it:confused:

You shouldn't get depressed Jonas. It is admirable what Sam has ammassed in his collection not to mention impressive. It is easy to get "Juan envy" over others' collections. I have seen Rob's collection up close and personal...twice and I am not jealous as much as I am awestruck.

Keep your chin up and keep plugging away...one card at a time.

Let me tell you something, at the time there were all of the Juan Gonzalez Topps Tek out there, I was able to buy all I want to pay for, at that time they were out of the question in prices, I believe that's the first 1/10 cards of Juan, and all of them have the same picture with a different background, even the common cards were so much of the same card for me, that I decide not to purchase many of them. That's why I don't have many, instead I decide to go for the rarest and different cards of Juan. I don't regret that at this point in time. Of course I would like to have more of them, now that they are cheaper and I can afford them. Also i enjoy every collection the rest of the guys shows in this page, and if someday I can add more cards to my collection that will be fine but I just admire Juan so much that I don't even care I can not have all of his cards. ;)

just after i put the good stuff on ebay sam sent me a private message with a list of low print runs and the more rare stuff.he bought a little over 150 cards of the over 300 on the list he sent me. some on his list i would not sell even tho i have doubles. i would not sell 1st# last# or jersey# the 95 donruss printers proof i would not sell him,to rare.he made an offer i could not refuse! so all you have to do is ask! roberto did also out side of ebay.i have also sold quite a few to mike.i do not like selling on ebay to much. my combinded ebay & paypal fees were over $400!!!:mad: the last time.i do not think i will do this to often.i still have over 4000 cards not on my list all doubles some rare ones.it takes a lot of time. i work 6 days a week in the winter months so my off time is rare. if juan does make the team what little of the rare stuff is left may come out and it may not! but it will cost more. it already has like i said before. how much did we pay for his cards 10 years ago sam told me he paid $1000 each for the 1998 crusade reds at the national in 98! so if you ask me his cards are dirt cheap right now i won the 05 tools auto for $36 numbered to 10 its the 1st one i have seen.$36 for a #/10 i need.all day long!! people:D i would not want to collect jeter cards! the same one went for $234 in december.hell i paid that"$36" for my first 1994 elite in 1995!there are 10,000 of those. so supply and demand.get them when you can.you may not see that card you need again.'there's no crying in baseball!!" card collecting!;)

Wil (aircorp42k) is the only other person I know that has a Crusader Red. They were extremely expensive and I can see them being sold for a grand in 98. The internet brought collectors cards and at a much cheaper price in the following years with auction sites especially Ebay.
