Most of my Ebay card purchase have made it to me in the last week, and I’m finally giving them the exposure they deserve.
The purchases were either for a single player collection, or an insert set that I’m currently working on(more on that later). If you know me, you know that Adam Graves is my top player collection.
This first one cost me a whopping 20 cents, and the shipping set me back a cool 40 cents!
I know it looks like nothing special, but I didn’t have that many O-Pee-Chee cards when I was a kid. So, they have a certain allure to me. And you have to admit that 60 cents total is not bad at all for Ebay!
It’s mint(actually looks pack-fresh), and another unique card to the Graves collection.
The next card is one of nicest looking cards I’ve seen for Graves. It’s from a pretty recent release, and it’s pretty odd for me to purchase a card from something so recent.
These Panini Classics on-card autos look fantastic, and the checklist is pretty varied(and awesome), to boot! I can’t afford $35 a pack, and I would be totally bummed to pull some of the other names on the checklist. I’m a fan of the entire checklist, but not all of the autos command even the price of admission. So, I feel the secondary market is the way to go when it comes to these.
This set me back for less than 1/4 of what a pack would’ve cost me. There’ll be a few more I’ll definitely be picking up from this set in the future, and I need to find Graves’ Retired Numbers banner card as well.
