In the process of sorting and sifting through the cards, I discovered some of the ar•che•types inserts were missing the silver foil on the front. After scouring eBay, I noticed that there were only a few listings and some of them were commanding a decent dime.
Now usually, I'm the type of collector who holds onto these kinds of oddballs. But after discussing it with a few friends, I decided to pull the Tony Gwynn, Jackie Robinson, and Rickey Henderson error cards... and list the rest for $100 or best offer.
I received a total of three offers and ended up accepting $75 for my seven card lot. After paying $7.80 in eBay fees and $2.59 to ship the cards, I ended up walking away with $64.61.
So what did I purchase? Check it out...
This card goes great with my refractor version:
I'm still looking for the non-autographed version of the Koufax for my set, along with the serial numbered copy of the autographed refractor version.
Plus I need a handful of other cards from this set:
If anyone has any of these available for trade or sale, please let me know. I didn't really create any collecting goals this year, but I think I'm going to try to finish this set by the end of the year. That's assuming these cards are available on eBay for reasonable prices... so I guess we'll have to sit back and see.
Happy Monday and sayonara!
