Bid Board Finds – Finding a random card I really coveted
July 26, 2016 § Leave a comment
I am really excited for this haul. Usually the bid board offers cards that are an assortment of no names and over-hyped cards. 99% of my bidding is pure impulse. That is until this week. A card was on the board that I legitimately coveted. A card that I spent several days before scouting on Ebay, and losing out on offers and auctions. So for this session of ‘Bid Board Finds,’ I was shocked to see it on the bid board. The best part, it was hidden and part of a lot. The seller didn’t know what he had and buried it behind a card that at least to me was lesser. I also got some other cards that I truly enjoy.
So the card that I am talking about? A Nikola Vucevic autograph. I can spend days rationalizing that the card is nothing special but I see him as a rising superstars in the NBA. The Magic are a team on the rise and it was paramount to me that I get his autograph while his stock is low in the eyes of collectors.
For $4.50, I got some cards that I am excited about.
$3.25 for a 3 card basketball autograph lot. Tyler Zeller was the card covering the Vucevic card, and the final autograph being Orlando Johnson.
$1.25 for a Tom Savage booklet
Even though the autographs can be found for cheap, I love the ‘Rookie Inscriptions’ set. They are acetate and can be found in boxes of ‘Elite;’ a product that probably gave me one of my best box hits as a whole ever on my birthday – https://angrycardcollector.com/2015/11/09/random-review-birthday-box-donruss-elite-201213-basketball/
