I actually opened my account over eight months ago, but didn't do anything with it until I stumbled across SpastikMooss' recent Listia purchase: a 2000 Quantum Leaf rookie card of Tom Brady.
His post inspired me to head over to the site to see what I was missing. One thing lead to another and I began doing whatever I could to earn credits. Pretty soon I had tripled my savings and eventually won my first auction:
It's a 1991 Maxx Winston Cup 20th Anniversary foil set which consists of 21 cards and features Richard Petty, Cale Yarborough, Dale Earnhardt, and several other NASCAR drivers.
This set is a perfect example of "jumping the gun". I was so excited to win an auction, I ended up winning an auction involving a sport I don't really follow. Oh well... I assure you I have no "buyer's remorse". It's a good looking set that will be thrown into a box and forgotten within a week or so.
SpastikMooss ended up giving me a few Listia tips and one of them was to create my first auction, because they'll reward you with 500 credits regardless if your auctions sells. So, I decided to post this 1980 Dodgers TCMA card of Don Drysdale:
As you can see, I set the opening bid at the ridiculous price of 1,959 credits. Why? Well... essentially, I'm not interested in getting rid of this card, but I wanted the free 500 credits.
Anyone else out there on Listia? What are your thoughts?
Happy Sunday and sayonara!
