Default What's your most exciting ebay win?

It's not often when you finally knock an item off the top of your wantlist. It's been a long while since I have been able to do it. It's extra sweet when the item is rarely seen and the example is in great shape. I know I'll remember this Easter quite fondly. I'm glad I was the underbidder on the only other one I have ever seen. This one was worth the wait, since it is a super clean example without pinholes!

Here's my newest and perhaps sweetest ebay WIN...Chief Meyers Philadelphia Evening Times Supplement.

i won a T202 of Matty graded PSA 7 for $300 off Ebay. When the stock market started to rise i decided to sell it a few months later for $500. Wish i kept it, but still made money on stocks.

Probably the most exciting was back in 1998. Someone listed a Grover Alexander single-signed baseball in the wrong category, under "antiques". It wasn't even listed under "sports". Got it for $100 and resold it for $5000.

It was not me; dang it; but someone bought all the rights to "Speed Racer" back in the early days of eBay - 1998 I think - for $33k

First edition, signed copy of "On the Road." I was walking on air for days after that one.

It has to be this card.

Anyone going after the T200 set would appreciate the feeling of seeing this card pop up as a buy-it-now.

I couldn't click fast enough.

This extremely rare book put out by Guy Green, owner of the Nebraska Indians team. It was a 10 day auction and I happened upon it in the first hour it was listed...that was an almost excruciating 10 days.

..around 1998 there were some incredible cards on ebay that did not 'disappear'. I remember waiting for a Holland Creameries Peckinpaugh that was listed that I noticed was not in Lemke's book at the time. This was before snipe services and ebay watch lists. The card was at around $275, but I was afraid to pull the trigger. Some guy named 'can of primo' won it for around $300. I let a Chase bl 460 go by the boards for under $400 as well as a few unc t214's. Finally, I pulled the trigger for $750 for an n172 Connie Mack throwing card from curly777. It was 10 x the amount of any card I had ever bought. I sold off much of my prior collection to fund the purchase. About 6 weeks later I saw other cards I wanted so I listed the n172 Mack on ebay. John from fullcount won it for about 850 and I was really happy to have turned a profit. He emailed me and stated that he had been looking for that pose for 20 years. Ebay is a blast and I have too many war stories to relate here. regards..

Great pick up Patrick, congrats

Bought this for less than $400 not too long ago. Not a bad price in my opinion since a PSA 7 that was O/C sold for over $4500 a few weeks ago.

Bought these Yale Murphy cards in either 1998 or 1999 from two different sellers. College photo was with a group of other Pach Brother photos of Yale students. Newsboy was in with a group of Newsboy actress cabinet cards.
