As a collector of BGS/BVG cards, especially 9.5's, of my favorite players, I saw this item post on eBay with a starting price of $2.99 (not $0.99, but not bad for a starting price). The S&H cost was $0.99 and it was a true BGS 9.5 of Bobby Doerr, one of my favorite Boston Red Sox players. How could I not pass up this item? I put in a low starting bid which would at MOST totaled out to $5.00 if it reached my max bid. What did it end up selling for? $3.98 TOTAL, including the S&H cost.
This is the eBay that I miss the most. No high starting bids, no BIN prices, no fixed price items. Just good ol' fashioned auctions with low starting prices that sell for what the item is truly valued at by the market. I have been cutting back on my purchasing due to the upcoming move, but I couldn't pass up this item as it's rare to find BGS 9.5 Bobby Doerr cards posted on eBay (or anywhere else for that matter!).
Until next time, keep collecting and trading!
