One Card Post - GOAT
How Much?: $9.99 (plus shipping)
Why?: I've officially come down with a case of World Cup fever. I've really been enjoying the tournament this summer, and have in turn been adding some soccer cards to my collection of late. I'm a huge fan of the Prizm sets that Panini has released for the last two World Cups running, and have wanted a copy of this Pele "World Cup Stars" card from the 2014 release for some time now. In particular I wanted a "wave prizm" parallel if at all possible, since I'm a total sucker for these colorful, shiny bits of cardboard.
The cheapest copy of this one on COMC is listed at north of $30, way beyond what I was willing to pay for the card. Instead, I took a stab at a Buy-It-Now auction for $14.99 or best offer recently, and was pumped when the seller accepted my first offer that was a mere 1/3 of the COMC asking price. A solid card of the greatest soccer player of all-time, and instantly one of my better soccer cards in my admittedly small collection of the sport!
