Set: 10 Cards
Home Run Race: #1 Mark McGwire, #2 Ken Griffey Jr., #3 Alex Rodriguez, #4 Vladimir Guerrerro, and #5 Albert Belle
RBI Race: #6 Nomar Garciaparra, #7 Ken Griffey Jr., #8 Alex Rodriguez, #9 Juan Gonzalez, and #10 Barry Bonds
As we all know, Bonds broke Aaron's home run record five years ago. But ironically, he was included in the RBI section. Speaking of RBI's. A-Rod is the only remaining person who has a shot at that title. He's currently 7th all-time and needs a little over 350 RBI's to become the new RBI King.
Hall of Famers: 0% (0 Players)
As of right now, none of the eight players in the set are enshrined in Cooperstown. However depending on how you feel about the "Steroid Era", there should be anywhere from two to five future HOFers.
Beckett Value: $60
This is one of the rare times where the individual values add up to less than the complete set value. If you took the time to look up each individual card, the 10 cards book for $57. However, Beckett lists the whole set at $60.
McGwire and Bonds are the two highest valued cards at $10/each. Griffey Jr. and A-Rod each have two cards in the set... and both are listed, along with Garciaparra, at $6/each.
eBay Value: $3.99
Completed eBay sales show that singles of A-Rod, Griffey, and McGwire have all closed in the $5 range, so these prices technically fall between the low and high value range in Beckett.
However, I lucked out and found a seller who listed the set as "Race for Aaron", instead of "Race to Aaron". The error allowed me to grab the complete 10 card set for $3.99 (free shipping).
Today's question is...
Have you ever capitalized on an eBay seller's grammatical or spelling error?
I'm sure I've lucked out before, but this is the only occasion I remember off the top of my head.
Happy Sunday and sayonara!
