With school coming to a close, I went to the card shop near school on a Saturday to attack the bid board. I put a good $30 worth of bids with only 2 hours until it closed. Naturally, I won a dollar’s worth of cards. When I walked in to pay for the cards on Monday, that is literally what I paid. One dollar because I didn’t get much. That is the way things go sometimes.
I paid 50 cents for the oversized Jamaal Tinsley card. I may have bid on a ton of stuff but I will be honest, this was the card that I wanted the most. I like oversized cards. As a low budget collector, a lot of collectors hate them because they are hard to store; so naturally that means that I am able to pick them up on the cheap. My inner child likes these cards the most as I know that I would love the card if I was a kid.
Despite being in the news recently thanks to his trade to the Mariners, I was able to get the Leonys Martin jersey for a quarter. I will gladly take it.
The last item was a lot of a dozen NBA cards. All but one of them was from 1996-97 Topps Finest. There were duplicates but they were all of star players like Alonzo Mourning, Reggie Miller, Kevin Garnett, and Dennis Rodman. The one non Finest card was an Alonzo Mourning rookie. I will gladly take them, as these cards are currently at least 50 cents each on COMC.com
