If I “need” a vintage card of a particular player, the first place I go is to Invest in Baseball‘s eBay page. I’ve made multiple purchases from them. They’ve treated me right and they have good prices.
I wanted to pick up a few Raymond Berry cards. I’ve seen that he is a fantastic TTM signer and wanted to get a few of them for myself. I ended up picking up four cards, that I will send over two separate mailings. I have no intention of selling any autographs that I get, but I also don’t want to appear greedy by sending too many at once.
The cards all have some flaws, but I picked them up for less than $2 each. It’s just my personal opinion that since I am keeping them for myself, the cards don’t need to be mint. Also, I prefer to pick up vintage cards to have signed as opposed to recent issues.
Collecting is about fun. Collect what and how you like.
