Hobby buzzwords the last decade or so

Post by ullmandds on Fri Nov 15, 2013 1:48 pm

Kind of like the words on a resume...the "buzz" words have changed over the years...I've been out of the job seeking market so long I wouldn't know how to write a resume!!!!!!

But relating to the hobby...what are some of your favorite "buzz-words" or "claims" people use to describe/promote their wares???

Personally one of my favorites is the "one of a kind" phenomenon...where almost every card has become one of a kind due to the print variations...centering/off centering...provenance of ownership...fact the owner hasn't seen another...blah blah blah!!!!

haha, every card in my collection is one of a kind because no other card has the same registration, centering or wear as any other card mallet

"Wet Transfer" or "Ghost Image".

Are these two terms interchangeable? I'm having a harder time believing these corrupted cards were produced by the manufacturer, rather than a result of poor handling over the last one hundred years, or worse, just faked.

As a result I have stacked all of my w514's face-to-face, soaked them, then bombarded them with UV until the desired effect is achieved, marked them up 1000% and listed them as a "one of a kind Shoeless Joe Jackson ghost image" on my Pickles Dilhoefer, auction starts at $1,000.Very Happy

Or just, "Ghost on my Pickle" to maximize views.
