If you take anything away from this post, make it this – if you really want something, bid on it even if you think “there’s no way I will get it for this price.”
I saw this in a Facebook card auction group with an opening bid of $3 (and an additional $3 shipping). I assumed there was no way it would end at that, but went ahead and bid anyway. Lo and behold, nobody else ever bid. I ended up with four cards, but I was really only interested in this one.
The card below were also in the lot but I’ve lost interest in former Mountaineers in their pro uniforms, unless there aren’t cards of them in their WVU uniforms.
These three will end up listed in my Sports Card Direct store at some point. I just have so many cards to list right now. If you are interested in any of them, let me know. I have at least 75 other Austin cards I’m looking to sell.
