Just trolling the 'bay the other night and picked up this auction:

Ripken

Basically bought it because I can always move Ripken cards pretty well in trades here on the Bench. So the packaged arrived today:

93 Leaf Heading for the Hall $10
94 Donruss Special Edition $5
96 UD Ripken Collection 16 $6
98 UD Prime Nine $4
99 UD Century Legends 55 $2.50 (not an insert, but I'm cool!)
99 UD Textbook Excellence $6 x2
99 Ultimate Victory Hit Men $6
00 Ultra Swing Kings $8
00 UD Faces of the Game $10
00 UD Ionix Reciprocal $12 x2
00 Fleer Gamers Cal to Greatness $5
00 Skybox Skylines $4
00 SPx 54 $4 (another non insert, but I'm still cool!)
00 Skybox Dominion Eye on October $10

And a few biggies!

99 UD HoloGrFx Future Fame Gold $40
99 UD Forte $20
99 UD Black Diamond Mystery Numbers /1300 $30
99 UD Immaculate Perception $25

So, actually only got 18 inserts, but I am more than fine with that! $226.50 in combined BV. That was the final purchase on my Ebay gift certificate that I received for Christmas from my wife. Thanks sweetie! :D

Wow, that is pretty good. I should have tried to run you up, LOL. Especially since that seller lives 15 minutes away from me. I could have maybe picked them up from him. Congrats!

Thanks! I was looking at the seller's other items, and his listings are not very efficient, and sometimes are confusing! He has a McGwire SP Leg Cuts bat listed for $19.99, but then has a lot listed that includes a McGwire GU base card that books for $50. Starting price of the lot? $9.99!

Anyway, I'm glad you didn't run me up but to tell you the truth I only bid $8 I think!

I still have about 100 Ripkens (base / inserts) that I'd love to move but am too lazy to list separately. That auction is exactly why I haven't just tried to dump them at one time. Nice job!

Oh yea! I bid the minimum, then was afraid someone would steal it by just a few cents so I added a buck! Getting beat by $1.50 I can live with, 50 cents I cannot.

Yea, I've found good deals in lots several times over the years. This auction was pretty bad in several ways - bad picture, bad description, and an opening bid that probably turned off most bargain hunters.

WOW - NICE FIND !!!

I saw that auction and passed. Terrible picture and the list of cards sucked too, you couldn't tell what was in there.

99 UD F2 = 99 UD HoloGrFx Future Fame Gold $40. Who could have guessed, LOL

Come on Tom, no need to rub in the Cards' misfortunes!

I may have some Ripken's that you need. Would you like me to send you a list?

I appreciate the offer, but I don't actively collect Ripken. I only picked up this lot to use as tradebait.
