Just for fun...what would you?

Post by Tekkie1 » Sat Nov 10, 2018 8:58 pm

Okay VAMMERS.

Lets say it's Saturday. You have nothing to do, nowhere to be, no chores pending and your pockets are full of cash.
You decide to go to your B&M. You happen to be the first one there. As a matter of fact, you're a tad early because the doors are still locked. A lengthy line begins to form behind you as you're waiting. Finally! An associate begins to unlock the doors. This hasn't happened before but as you enter, you're given a ticket with the number " 1 " on it. The people behind you are also being given tickets in numerical order as well. Here's where we go into Fantasy Land mode.

As you approach the displays with all the goodies in them, the owner tells you that he has every single known VAM Variety in attributed MS65 Holders. All correctly done. They will be sold at Graysheet price. You think to yourself that you are about to blow every single dollar that you have on you to get those VAMS that you either couldn't afford, couldn't find or were impossible to get.
As your mind races as to what to get first , the owner throws in that you are only allowed to buy "3 " as other people in line must get the chance to make a purchase as well. Now, you in a predicament as to what is a priority with the choices you'll be making.
Do you go with a High Value VAM?
Do you go with a Hole filling VAM for an incomplete set?
Clashed Dies? How about those pesky Longnocks? WOW list VAMS? Darkside VAMS? Complete CUDS? I know, I know. Fantasy Land remember? ;)
What about strategy? Do you try and bribe the people behind you? Do you pay them to choose for you?
What would you do ?
You can choose 3 and then a secondary 3 just in case Brian happens to be in front of you and picks the 3 you wanted first.

It's just for fun.
Here's my first 3 and then my secondary 3.


1) 1889-P VAM-23A
2) 1892-CC VAM-2A Thanks Nate. :)
3) 1901-P VAM-3

Secondary 3

1) 1878-P VAM-9
2) 1891-O VAM-15B
3) 1880-P VAM-25 B

You can't get everyone you want or need at once and that's why it's fun.
Thanks all

You guys buying 1901 VAM 3s in 65 must really be flush with hypothetical fantasy cash.

I'll take a 78 VAM 14.17, a 98-O VAM 20, and a 21-D VAM 1X2.
