Pedro Auto

OK. I am back to posting about sports cards.

My current most ambitious en devour is the 2006 Upper Deck Artifacts Auto-Facts Signatures set. At 88 cards strong, it has been a challenge.

A few weeks ago, This Pedro Martinez card popped up on eBay. The seller had a BIN of $50 bucks. It's not a $50 dollar card, but I really wanted it. I offered $40 bucks. The seller countered with $45 plus s&h. We were at an impasse. He re-listed the card, and I again let him know that my two Andrew Jackson's were available. This time, he said that if it it didn't sell, it was mine. I waited. Watched the days pass, and the clock tick. Bam! No bidders. True to his word, he sold it to me. $40 bucks S&H included. The seller, gadstrike08, was a very good communicator. Show him some love and bid on some of his stuff. There are some killer cards there! I really hate forking out that kind of cabbage for a single card, but when it fills in a gap in a set, and it's numbered to /100, one must do what one must do.

I have a want list posted to the right. I have whittled the wants down to; Chris Carpenter, Chase Utley, Miguel Cabrera, Marcus Giles, Magglio Ordonez, and Dontrelle Willis
If you have one of these to trade, let me know. Thanks
There is a great contest over at Crinkly Wrappers. Go there. Go.
