Bid Board Finds: coming after the ‘Bell’

When I walked into Valley Sports Cards on Saturday, I wasn’t expecting to buy anything for myself. I went in there for Pokemon cards for the twins. I wasn’t expecting to get any cards off the bid board as I was there a little past 1 pm, and their bid board ends at 1 pm. So how did I end up with cards from the bid board? They said that if something wasn’t bid on then I could take have the card for the minimum bid. Part of me wanted to take every jersey and autograph that was qualified and was a dollar. I operate in moderation however and only took a few items. $3 for 3 cards.

Alvan Adams jersey; grabbed it because I would never sniff National Treasures in real life. Kenny Bell patch, because a dollar for a recent patch , even if it is event worn, is a steal from any card shop. Rashad Greene because acetate autographs are beautiful. All PC impulse buys.

This is the second of my two boxes from my post Christmas gift card cash in. I finally opened the box last night and it has taken me that much time to develop a true opinion of it. Lets run down my hits before I delve in:

8 cards per pack, 1 pack per box. 2 autographs and 1 game used

The cards:
2 base cards: Evan Turner and Tyson Chandler
Allen Iverson Innovators
Manu Ginobili stained glass (well plastic) – by far my favorite card in the box
Andrew Nicholson rookie #ed to 349
Kevin Murphy rookie autograph
Greg Monroe Fine Print autograph
Andre Drummond Authentic Material rookie card #ed to 199

Bid Board Finds #6 & #6.5

Two quick one off finds from 2 different bid boards. One from my favorite card shop, Valley Sports Cards, and the other from the one near my college.

First up is Roman Reigns event used shirt that I got from Valley Sports Cards. The price was negligible as I payed under a dollar. I don’t get to highlight their bid board much because I don’t go in there for their bid board. I was ecstatic to get this as Reigns will probably win the WWE Championship this weekend at Survivor Series. These cards don’t go for much but I feel like I got an absolute steal; as similar cards from WWE champions fetch $10.

 

The other find is an Andre Ellington autograph from my usually place. I am not going to say how much I paid for it because I didn’t keep the card. I sent it to a super collector as a thank you for being amazing to the hobby. Speaking of which, I should do something for Alex at Valley Sports Cards.
