Pickups: some Jammin cards

Jammin JD does a lot of good stuff in the hobby. I personally enjoy watching his Youtube breaks.
As I was doing some recent Ebay shopping for my Prestige collection, I came across a card that he had for sale that I wanted. I didn’t buy it right away because I emailed him instead figuring we could avoid Ebay fees, and I might get a better deal. Turns out, it worked in my favor that I emailed him because he had some parallels I needed that weren’t listed.

So if you see a ‘Buy It Now’ listing and know the person selling it, try messaging them in other avenues. You might get rewarded with a deal, and you help them an added layer of fees. They win, you win, and the cards win because they found a good home.

Bid Board Finds: 2 shops, 4 cards, 8 bucks

I love the bid boards at my favorite hobby shops because I get quality stuff and end up spending more on gas.
It’s all basketball this week, encompassing 2 shops again. Ironically I spent 4 dollars at each shop for the 2 basketball cards they each gave me.

Let’s start with the shop that I consider my home away from, Valley Sports Cards:

Spent 3 dollars for the Morris autograph and a buck for the Dragic dual. I really like the concept of the Dragic card. Morris started the season great the other night as he put up 17 points with 9 rebounds. He is averaging those numbers this season as well; you can guess why.

 

Now onto my loot from Northridge Sports Collectibles: 20161027_111812Celtics triple jersey for 1.25 with Jared Sullinger, Marcus Smart, and Avery Bradley; numbered to 99. A.C. Green autographed letter for 2.75. Maybe I will start trying to build ANGRY in these letters, now that I have an extra N.
