Ebay Auction of The Week: MJ Game Used Auto card

In honor of Micheal Jordan’s Hall of Fame induction Friday, the Ebay Auction of the Week goes to a sweet Game-used autograph card hand numbered to 23. This card from 1998 UD features a nice patch and a beautiful on-card autograph along with the 5/23 hand numbered. Want to add this card to your collection? It will only take you over 1,000 George Washington’s. Hmm, what would you buy for 1,000 bucks. A basketball card or a 52 inch Flat Screen HD TV or anything else. This card is very nice though.

MJCongrats to Micheal for getting into Hall!

Ebay Auction of the Week: huge,huge lot!

Ok, this is amazing. I was searching Ebay for and auction worthy of Auction of the Week and I came across this huge lot. There’s sooo much to describe here is how they list it on the auction. 

As of right now (3 days, 12 hours to go) this is going strong at 31 bids and 10,300 dollars. As cool as this lot is, it is a sad fact because what is going on is a large card shop is going out of business because of places like ebay, and dacardworld.  (Nothing against those places at all) 

All the pictures take a while to load, if you give it a some time to come up, its well worth the wait. And prepare to spend a good chunk of time looking at the amazing cards this out of business shop has to offer.

2009 Topps Chrome Error card

I was looking through all the Topps Chrome auctions on ebay and was going to make a post about the popularity of 09 Topps Chrome and the value. Then I came across this error card of Will Venable(RC). The card has a sticker for the autograph of Venable, but there’s one problem, its not autographed! Im pretty sure this is the first reported error card in 2009 Topps Chrome so this is a pretty big deal(well at least I think it is).

If you go to ebay and type in 2009 Topps Chrome Error, you will find about 6 different auctions of error cards all from Will Venable. Topps really messed up on a Venable blue refactor that is missing its card number and autograph and is #’d to 199. This leaves me to wonder what other error cards will be pulled.

Weird Ebay Card of the Day

I was browsing Ebay, and came across this Custom Art card of President Obama. The card features a 1955 Bowman design and the back of the card is blank and features the autograph of the painter.In this design, Obama is wearing and umpire cap modeling after the many umpire cards in 1955 Bowman. If your an avid Obama collector, or you are just a collector, this custom card will be a nice fit to your collection for right around 10 bucks.

So why am I calling it weird, because for one, I’m still wondering why there are this many Obama cards in the hobby. I know hes the first African-American President, but why all the cards.No, I’m not going to get into politics right now. The second reason, this card just looks weird with the umpires cap on. Of course, no disrespect to the painter as they did an excellent job.

2009 UDx is here, lacking love

2009 Upper deck x has hit the stores, and its laking respect. For around 35 bucks you can get a hobby box, and for young collectors on a budget,this is a good product. But the reality is that many collectors dont want to waist there money buying a product that has barley changed appearance since last year, and has an X on it. Really, who thought of this. Obviously its not going to go over well with collectors to have a card with an X on it.

This product is not absoutly horrible, as the somewhat flashy design could appeal to kids and collectors. Also a plus is the die-cuts and UDXpotential inserts falling 1 each in every pack. As you can see from the ebay auctions, these cards arent going for much, which means the people the are choosing to collect 09 UDx should be happy. Every hobby box contains one jersey card, and 3 20th anniversary cards.

 Longoria 09 UDx There is some diference but the design is pretty much similar. There is also two more UDXpotential subsets in the set this year as UDXpotential 5 and 6 were added. By the way doesnt Xpotential sound like they dont have any potential? Just thought of that.

Ebay comes through

Im always looking to add to my Joey Vottocollection and over the past two weeks, Ive done just that. I added 15 cards to my collection about two weeks ago with an ebay auction and then recently won a nice 2009 Topps Allen & Ginter card.

I am on a budget so I cant get everything. If I wasn’t I would definitely collect Allen & Ginter. I also collect reds players if I can get them at a low price.

I have to say that 2009 Topps Allen & Ginter is by far the best product this year.

Stephen Strasburg hits Ebay!

As the hype of Stephen Strasburg grew, so did the number and price of his cards on ebay. Just two days after Strasburg was selected number one overall in the MLB draft, there were over 100 of his cards on Ebay. I know his is a little late, but his cards are still going high.

There are curently 4 of his cards over $100 with bids and so many more in that area. So many people are looking to make big money off his cards as you can see here.

Stephen Strasburg’s highest card with bids right now is a 2008 Upper Deck Timeline rookie auto SP.

Meanwhile, Bryce Harper could top Strasburg on ebay in the next couple of years as he already has some high priced cards including his 2008 USA Auto Jersey Rookie #’d to 50.

You can view all of Bryce Harper’s cards on ebay here.
