Default 2019 Nate Sexton Firebird Artwork

I've seen a few on Ebay. The artwork has been really amazing every year, but this new one looks really poorly done compared to the previous years. Also, Nate is not featured in the middle spinning his putter. I was curious if anyone else felt this stamp was a real let down like me... Maybe it's not the official final one lol. I'm sure they are great throwers like previous ones, but from a collectors standpoint, I would probably pass on putting these away for increased value in the future.

I wholeheartedly agree, you definitely should NOT buy these to collect.

All tour series discs are now illustrated by Innova West. Some stamps are now better than they used to be, some are now worse. Maybe Nate Sexton had somebody outside of Innova West do his before? And now it is handled by somebody different?

IDK.

I’ve been wanting to do a tour series stamp for a few specific people but it looks like I’m gonna have to get hired by West to do them. It’s lame… But I understand why they did that.

Strongly disagree. While the 2018 artwork's my favorite, I like this year's better than any of the other ones. 2015 and 2016 in particular didn't look all that great to me. BTW, Nate's spinning his putter between the N and S between "Nate Sexton" and "Glow Champion."

And yeah, you really shouldn't be hoarding them.

Collector value generally comes down to year of manufacture, not so much stamp art. Give it a couple years and 2019s will be going for 40 bucks or whatever. Side note, buying a disc for 25 dollars and selling it for 40 two years later doesn’t seem like the greatest investment. Throw them

Real estate. Stock portfolios. Etc.
Golf discs are more fun, for sure, but these other options are better if long term financial growth are your priority.

Minutes is a gigantic exaggeration. But hey, have fun with it. I imagine most people are just buying more plastic with their profits. To each their own

Don't be a dick and stockpile discs that people WANT to own and THROW --- just to make 10-15$ per disc. its a dick move if you ask me.

and you didn't - but I'm telling you - don't stockpile then sell later, butthole

Ok, I'll stop my $100 Sexton purchases, someday I'll reach 20k for a down payment on a rental property!
