Why I Love eBay

Posted by houstoncollector on October 1, 2009

As most of you know, I’m a player collector, concentrating on Houston Texans and Houston Astros.  I also haven’t been buying much in the way of cards, even though I love busting.  I decided this week to do a bit of celebrating, and spent about the same as a mid-range box of cards, and got an incredibly sweet haul, as well as some filler GU/AU for my collection.

Tell me what you think, and tell me if you wouldn’t be thrilled to pull this level of product from a box break?

    Great haul. Are the prices you paid including shipping? Just wondering. Thanks.

    That’s with shipping, yes. A bit more than I planned on paying, but …. eh. I’ll throw some stuff on eBay in the next week or two to recoup.
