Bid board finds #8

Compared to last week’s haul this week’s offers little in value; but then again that was a huge haul.
Only 4 cards today, and I paid $6.75. $3 of that went to the vintage 1951 Bowman card and another $2.25 to the Bryce Brentz autograph flier that I took. The other 2 cards were a dual UFC card and Billy Butler uncirculated rookie. This was my 2nd uncirculated card in as many weeks. I said before and I will say it again, they are under appreciated in today’s market. The UFC card had Anthony Pettis and Gilbert Melendez, limited to just 188 cards.

Bid Board Finds #7

This week’s Bid Board Finds has to be the mother-load compared to past posts. A lot of it has to do with bidding 28 hours before the bid board ended; as opposed to the usually 100 or so hours that I normally do.

This weeks haul was $16.25 for 14 cards. These cards are best broken up in 2 categories: Steelers and non Steelers. I am not a Steelers fan but in comparison with others this is my favorite load because of the value. Steelers players have a lot of trade value because of how popular they are. There is really only 1 card in the Steelers lot that I would consider untouchable in terms of my PC. The 3 non Steelers are all PC cards.

The Haul:
The non Steelers:
Kony Ealy autograph – love it because he is Panthers player
Brandon Barnes autograph – PC item because he was with the Lancaster Jethawks when I lived near their stadium and went to a ton of games
1953 Topps – Jim Rivera – a solid starter for his time

The Steelers:
David DeCastro autograph, limited to 99 – my PC item because I love offensive lineman
2 Terry Bradshaw Triple Threads #ed cards, one to 199 and the other to 1199
Kordell Stewart/ Jerome Bettis dual jersey, limited┬áto 400 – you have to love Slash. I will be honest, I am not a Bettis fan
Duce Staley  prime jersey #ed to 50- big jersey piece with a sliver of a patch
Antwaan Randle El autograph
Cameron Heyward autograph
Lawrence Timmons autograph – this is the second Timmons autograph in my collection and I am not a fan of them. I hate how he took the easy way out and only signed LT.
Lamarr Woodley autograph – the owner of the shop thought that this was the steal of the haul
Ben Roethlisberger uncirculated, limited to 750 – uncirculated cards under appreciated in today’s card market. I wasn’t a fan of them when they were around but now that they are gone, I miss them.
Rashard Mendenhall autographed letter ‘E,’ limited to 20 – this was the most expensive item in the lot at $3
