Hi, big Palace collector here.

I looked at the quad auto card above and for a good while thought that the Bolasie part of it looks nothing like anything from a Palace shirt, home, away or even third.

But then I realised that it's the edge of the shirt number. So even if it doesn't look right at first, it probably is right.

I've been on ebay.com and ebay.ca (Canada) and there are loads of cards listed including printing plates, autos, and all the rare parallels. Prices don't seem toooo bad (once you've got your head around them) for lesser teams like Palace (I can say lesser, being a long suffering fan!), but the main downside will be all the money spent on shipping (postage).

Biggest downside for me I suppose is that pretty much every auto and jersey card is the same Palace player (Bolasie) - and that's before all the parallel variations!

Still very much going to enjoy this collection though!

I'm probably just impatient, however it seems that on ebay, the vast majority of cards being sold are the autos, jerseys and rare parallels. I don't seem to be able to see anyone simply selling the 'bog standard' base cards - you'd have thought there'd be plenty of interest in complete 10 player base sets?
Maybe it'll be awash with these more mundane cards once the 'good stuff' has died down??

The team base sets seem to have started appearing on ebay.com.
Nice to get those out the way so I can concentrate on all the crazy combinations or parallel cards!

Just about every Crystal Palace jersey and auto card is Yannick Bolasie, and ebay seems to be flooded with them!!

If anyone sees a 'quad auto book card' please can they post a photo. For curiosity purposes more than anything - I've seen NFL ones, and they fold open and look rather clever, so I've love to see!!

Thanks DVSGooner. At least it exists, albeit rare as hens teeth.

EDIT - AYA (on here) is selling one of the ( /5!!) quad autos. Bit out of my league price-wise, but if anyone wants to treat themselves, send him a PM

I Won the quad patch featuring Bolasie last night, so doing okay via ebay at least!
