Looking over some old eBay feedback......

I just finished glancing back through the feedback that has been left for me as a seller over the past few years. I had to giggle at some of the prices that some of the cards went for. I do not have an ebay store, and I usually cash in when the "time is right" (after no-hitters, MLB call-ups, etc.). That explains almost every one of these transactions. This list doesn't cover all of my good sales - these are just the ones I received feedback for. I also remember selling some Clay Buchholz for some big bucks after his no-no. I do wonder if any of the buyers feel any regret for buying these at the wrong time.........

06 Turkey Red White AUTO David Wright - SOLD for $165
01 Topps Chrome Retrofractor Edwin Encarnacion - SOLD for $45

Do you have any good sales you would like to share?

By the way - don't even get me started on the cards I sold WAY too soon - that is a thread by itself.:) Examples: 2000 Topps Traded AUTO Miguel Cabrera for $40; 2000 Bowman Draft Grady Sizemore AUTO for $25; 2003 Bowman Chrome X-Fractor AUTO Hanley Ramirez for $40.......

Prospecting pays off for some!! Those selling at the right mostly!!

It's fun to check that kind of stuff out. Same with the old prices in the guides and ads. I have been going through Becketts this weekend and the prices for show autos in the 80s is amazing. $7 for Griffey Jr! $15 for Ali! $9 for Mays!

No doubt! I paid $12 for Mays back in 1990 at the State Tech Institute in Memphis. As a 12-year old boy, I really didn't know the "ins" and "outs". So, when they asked me if I wanted an American League ball or a National League - I chose American, lol! That's right...I walked through that line and got Mays' auto on an official AL ball - even though he never played a day in the AL.:)

At one time before entering thje NFL he was supposed to change the game...unfortunately, he didn't know what game he was playing....sad, but awesome sale.

This is a cool thread, but I would hate to show the "bad" buys I've made over the years!!!!

Yeah, I paid $12 for both Mantle and Whitey Ford in 1987. I wish I would have gotten more than one auto that day.

I've done the same in the past. I don't remember all of them, but I do remember selling a Chien-Ming Wang AUTO a couple years ago for approx. $165.

I just sold a 2010 Bowman Chrome Prospects card of Stephen Strasburg for $20. Maybe I made out and maybe I didn't. Time will tell.

There's always going to be pros and cons to this method. If I'd only sold all those Darryl Strawberry & Dwight Gooden cards years ago when they were hot.
