Trade from Summer of '74Matt over at Summer of '74 has also been taking part in some of the new business of the Iron Lion Collectibles. I was able to swing a trade with him for a sweet Kenny Golladay card! I have been trying to get my hands on a Kenny G auto for a while. I even entered in some breaks but no luck, that is until I stumbled across Matt's Iron Lion winnings post. In a perfect world Kenny G and JaCoby Jones will be the faces of Detroit sports for the next 12-15 years and both retire with and get elected into the HOF with Detroit. That is in a perfect world.
Ebay Steals from Listing ErrorsLately, when I get bored at night I make my way to ebay to search for erroneous listings of decent cards that I can win for cheap. I am split between "yes, what a steal" and "don't be a douchebag, you are stealing" with some of these. I am winning auctions for 35 cents, sometimes less with free shipping. Now, a seller should never post something for less than they are willing to sell it for. They should also never start an auction at .01 with free shipping without a reserve. I don't really know how to feel about the cards I get since its costing the sellers money to give me the card. I have done that many a time as a seller myself. Sometimes I wonder who the seller is and if they know a stamp is no longer 35 cents.
|My biggest cheap win. The seller mispelled Yoan Moncada terribly so I got this for next to nothing. They lost money shipping it to me. I am not a Moncada fan but I always look for flippable cards to turn into PC cards. This is available.|
|I recieved this in a trade recently. I think from facebook. I honestly don't remember the transaction other than I traded a card I had found in a dimebox at the last show. Not bad for a PC guy in return even if I already have the card.|
|.35 cents to my door.|
|.25 cents to my door.|
|PC! 45 cents!|
More Beneficial Errors
When I am not putting ebay sellers in the poor house late at night, I have been searching a lot of the wax from Papa Jack's boxes while logged onto TCDB looking for errors and variations. Its been pretty fun and I have found a lot. They aren't enough to retire on but its the thrill of the hunt, isn't it?
