Today's keeper card comes courtesy of a recent eBay flip. I've been on a pretty incredible run of these in the past couple of months. I guess my timing for thinning out my collection and selling some unwanted items matched up nicely with the insane recent rise in the sports card market. So far this year I've:
- Flipped nearly three dozen graded cards into a beautiful Jordan RC
- Flipped a single modern soccer card for five stunning HOFers
So, what did I part with to raise the funds?
After a bit of back and forth with the eventual buyer, I let the lot go for $95. This was a fair price for both of us, and I'm certain it's more than I paid for these individually over the years. The buyer is working on a complete set and was so excited to land this many at once, and I was about halfway to raising the funds for the dream card I was targeting. A win/win!
This is a card I absolutely intend to pick up another copy of someday, when the time is right and the right deal comes along. For now, I was happy to collect $75 for it, a deal that again I think was fair for both parties.
I was excited to let it go, because when the funds from those three sales came through I had what I needed in my Paypal account, and sprung into action!
With just a few clicks of a mouse, a card I've drooled over for pretty much decades now was finally mine.
Check it out!
To me, it's an absolute stunner. Good centering, not perfect but good, and just a clean, vibrant front. Those colors are absolutely popping off the card even 60+ years after it was produced. No surface creases, "snow" over Jackie's face, or any other detractors like that. Not that I even mind that type of stuff when it comes to cards like this, but this example doesn't seem to summer from any of that.
This card makes me smile every time I hold it in hand and look at it. I don't miss that Bowman Feller much now!
here if you're interested. As you can see in the snippet above, it's starting to look pretty impressive thanks to all this eBay flipping.
I'll be back with more keepers soon, in the meantime thanks as always for stopping by...
