Very nice indeed, great players! awesome pickups!
About a month ago, I got outbid on a Marc Tardif Parky auto I needed for my set. It was the only one I've ever seen, and it went for $37.88 plus shipping, which was way too much for me. Fast forward to last night, I notice another one listed with 2 other Parky autos, so I put a snipe on it, and won it this afternoon. Now, I don't need the Mcfarlane, or Grimson, as I have those already, but when I get those two, plus the Tardif for $16.49, you jst gotta love it. Sometimes it pays to wait for something.
Those are cool, Congrats Troy!
Thanks! Picked this one up tonight keeping with my old guys theme. Wanted to add to Makita to my PC for a while, but never seemed to be able to fing one at a decent price until tonight.
nice pick up Troy!
Super stoked to add another extremely short printed auto tonight for my Parkhurst set. I finally joined up on COMC yesterday, and found this one was for sale at $44, which is exactly what the last one on ebay sold for (one previous to that one sold for $60). I transferred some funds into my account, and sent an starting offer of $35., and the card owner accepted it.
I actually bought this card in the summer off a very reputable guy off HI, but he never sent it, and after a month of waiting, I contacted him, and he said he forgot. I told him just to send it right away, and all would be forgotten, but another week went by, and I heard nothing from him, so I filed a dispute with paypal, and esculated it to a claim right away. He finally decided to contact me after paypal froze his funds, and said he would send it to me if I resent the funds back to him. I told him I would pay for it as soon as it arrived here, because I wasn't going through another 6 weeks of his excuses, and BS. Never heard back from him again, and he got himself banned for life on HI because of this. This guy had 130+ feedback over there. hard to believe one would want to ruin their reputation over $30?
Anyways, after thinking I may never see another one of these, I finally have one on the way. I'm down to needing 32 now to finish this set. Lots of expensive ones to get, so it will take a while.
3 more pickups last night. One hockey, and two odd ball autos that don't really fit my PC, but are pretty cool, so what the heck? Mario was the jockey who rode "I'll have Another" to the Kentucky Derby win in 2012, and what else needs to be said about "The Poker Brat"?
Just added this one.
Picked this up tonight. This is Allan Stanley's rookie card from the famous 51-52 parkhurst set. Not sure if it's worth getting graded, or not? I'm guessing it would get at least a 4, but could get a 5 maybe? I'll see what our friends at ISA grading say on it? Oh, and I forgot to mention why I bought it. mr Stanley passed away yesterday at age 87. RIP!!
looking at the 'bay.. it seems that all 1951-52 Parkies are bring big numbers graded.
3 more tonight. All from the same guy. Realized that I had sold both my Brett Hull autos, so wanted one for the collection. $12, and change is a steal for his signature. Added the Mogilny for $6, and change (his autos a rare), and the McSorely for $2, and change as an after-thought.
Just won this!
Just added another one for the Parky set.
Just nailing them Parkie's away, nice 51 parkie, RIP! Nice Yzerman, Mogilny AU, great pick prices! Congrats Troy!
Thanks! One of the best parts of collecting what I do, is knowing how great a deal I've been scoring on these awesome additions to my PC. I probably won't ever be able to finish the Parkhurst set, as there are about 15, or so that are just so rare, and priced so high. Even when some of these pop up on occassion, you have to have the paypal ready, and waiting, and that's gonna be very hard to do, especially when ones like the Mario Lemieux go for about a grand. I've never even seen a Beliveau, and not too many Roy, or Bourque have ever surfaced. Realistically, I can probably obtain another 15, or there-a-bouts. The last 15 are gonna be very tough.
5 more autos tonight from the same guy. $9.99 for a Brett Hull auto? I'll pay $11 for Sundin autos all day long! Been selling them for $25- $30. Koivu is no longer signing autos, and his signature is fairly rare compared to most players, and was just over $5. Gaborik, and Sedin were both $2.99 each, so not a bad buy. I'll probably flip all 5 of these once they come in.
Now those are nice, Yet to have a Hull Auto, nice find!
Two wins tonight from my favorite seller. $11.07 for the Tiger, and $4.30 for Lanny with $3 shipping.
Thats a cool Lanny!
3 more autos tonight. One Phil Kessel auto/jersey rookie, and 2 Parkys for my set. I have one of those Kessels already, so I'll probably flip it, and get another parky, or something for it.
