Hello everyone! I’m binder-ing some more of my ’74 set and going through some trade lists, but I wanted to take a minute to show off a few cards from an eBay pickup that came in yesterday.
I’d let this lot pass by a couple times – once out of restraint, the second was just because I missed my auction alert – but when it was relisted I made a note to go ahead and drop the minimum bid. In the end, no one else bid and I netted eight of the 1963 Colt .45s on my list and a spare Manny Mota rookie card that I’ll send off for a signature. All that ran me just over seven bucks including shipping – not bad!
Everything is in pretty good shape with some standard corner and edge wear, except for the Mota which has some surface scratches in the upper right. I can always upgrade that, though.
I may sneak another post in later today, but I doubt it. We’re getting ready to take a trip in a few days, and I’m trying to tie up some loose ends (and get some card stacks off my desk!) before heading off to Marfa.
