While I’ve gotten back into picking up vintage cards for the most part, I primarily focus on football. However, I saw this card on auction on a Facebook page, so I went ahead and made the first bid. I never expected to win it at that price, but I did.
I know the card isn’t in great shape, but high book on it is $50. I ended up getting it for $8 – the $5 opening bid and $3 shipping. Even when I did have some vintage cards a few years ago, I know that I never owned a Ty Cobb card. Now, I do.
