Sometimes I scan a card in and create a quick title and forget to post it. My work schedule ranges from 48 to 60 hour work weeks beginning in October through February. It's during this time that many of my posts are recapping cards I got during the summer.
Today's card is something I purchased nearly half a year ago. I got shilled on this and it reminded me why I should never bid on Probstein auctions. The card went for twice the rate I would have liked to pay for it, but I put in a crazy high max bid because I really wanted it. I never thought it would actually go for what it did.
The trouble with going through consignment services like Probstein is that you are always subject to having the auctions go for more than you would like to pay because the person who is consigning the card may be on the other pumping up the bids as the auction goes closer to the end.
Recently I purchased 9 more cards from Probstein, many of which are relic parallels from 2017 Triple Threads. I was able to snag those for as little as $7.50 - $12. This made me much happier than when I bought the Tier One above. It had been nearly 6 months since I bid on Probstein auctions because of that one auction. You can expect a post on the 9 new additions sometime later this month (if I can get around to scanning them in).
