In 2013 Upper Deck made an employee-exclusive set of purple Precious Metal Gems cards featuring some stars from non-mainstream sports. The checklist includes Michael Phelps, Mike Tyson, Oscar de la Hoya, Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods, and Hulk Hogan. The one card I really wanted was the Hulk Hogan card, but especially when they first released the price was sky-high. They're numbered out of # / 125.
Well, the number of single copies on eBay pretty much dried up, but there was this lot of four copies on there for quite a while. I finally decided to go ahead and get it, with the plan to sell off three copies individually to make some of the money back. I haven't yet got around to that part of it yet, but I'll probably do it soon. In-hand they are very shiny and beautiful. I love this card. This lot is made up of copies # 043 / 125. # 084 / 125, # 102 / 125, and # 103 / 125. I need to find more Metal Universe cards. Something about the finish on the Metal sets just has that 'it' factor for me.
