Once in a while, I'll take a peek at the auctions on Sportlots. I think I may have won a couple of them over the time I've been on the site, but I don't spend a great deal of time perusing their auctions.
Last week, on a lark I bid on a few vintage card auctions, putting up a disgustingly cheap max bid and letting the chips fall where they may. I didn't expect to win any of them with the amount that I bid.
Surprise, surprise, I wake up Sunday morning to find out I won a 3 card lot of '57 Topps. Take a look:
Yes, the Bobby Avila is off center, and the Dave Pope has a crease or 3, along with some very soft corners on the bottom.
But when I can add 3 more cards from the '57T set to my collection for a whopping fifty cents (plus shipping), I'm not going to complain too loudly.
Even the mrs. was shocked when I told her the final bid.
Maybe I should go buy some Powerball tickets tomorrow. My luck couldn't have run out already, right?
thanks for reading, Robert
