This past weekend I was perusing eBay to see if any deals could be found. Along the way I found a few that I decided to make offers on, but not before checking some previously sold values of the same items that just sold. The item I was interested in was from this years Triple Threads release of the All Star relics numbered to 9. The card sold at auction from right around $45.00 and there were to separate listings of BIN/BO which were $99.99 and $129.99.
I put offers on for that were below the sales price of the auction, but were respectable to get the process started of a little haggling back and forth. None the less that didn't happen with either listing. The seller of the $99 listing responded back "WOW IS THIS ALL AT ONCE OR IN PAYMENTS" and countered with $99.98. I upped my counter and got a decline. The second one didn't even counter my offer and just declined with "DO NOT NOW OR EVER PLACE ANOTHER BID ON MY SITE!!!!!!!" I just love sellers on eBay. I will probably place another offer on the last guy in a few days to see what happens and I'll keep you posted.
How about rookie Jacob DeGrom for the Mets last night striking out the first 8 batters of the game to tie the MLB modern day record. His stats are 8-6 134K's 2.68 ERA 1.14WHIP and .230BAA. Pretty impressive for a rookie. Hopefully hes in discussion for rookie of the year with a line like that.
Now before we get to a card I finally got one of my redemption's from Topps today. I'll have to make a post all by itself cause its a awesome card. I also have to showcase another card that I've had for awhile. Just now to find the time to do it and come up with some goody's for a CONTEST.
Whats a post without a card. How about a 2008 UD Premier Steve Slaton rookie auto card /5. I've had this card for awhile and probably paid more than what its worth today, but I plan on keeping it being its a WVU guy. Slaton had a phenomenal rookie season rushing for almost 1300 yards and 9 touchdowns. Too bad the injury bug bit him his second year in the league cause he never recovered or preformed like he did his rookie year. I believe he his playing currently for the Tornoto Argonauts in the CFL.
LETS GO MOUNTAINEERS!!!!
LETS GO METS and YA GOTTA BELIEVE!!!
