Letting the Chips Fall Where They May
Every once in a while, I like to head over to eBay and browse the auctions with no bids. I'm not a big fan of sniping, but it is what it is. I placed bids on about 10 vintage cards and then waited for the big hit to my wallet. Well. Steve was the only winner! The card was in very nice shape, especially in comparison to the beat up cards I usually bring home from the bargain bins. A little bit off center and the two bottom corners have some dings, but this might be the sharpest card in my collection from the 1969 Topps set.
I placed a bid of $10, and no one outbid me, so I was able to have this one shipped to me for single digits. Not too shabby for a hall of famer!
