Last week I posted about picking up a vintage CFL card for my WVU collection. What I failed to mention was that I also bought another one on eBay that night.
The seller had marked the card down because, well, who is actually looking for this card? Not too many. What got me to look was that even at a PSA 8, it was the highest grade this card has seen. That is true, but bear in mind that PSA has only graded 12 of these. Ten of them are an 8. I checked out the SGC and Beckett POP Reports and neither of them show a record of grading the card.
I recall from my youth that when I saw O-Pee-Chee cards, they had pretty bad edges. I feel like they were using dull blades, but I could be wrong. For the price, it was an easy choice to pick this card up.
I figured I should sneak one thing in at the end. In the piece about the raw copy of this card, I mentioned that this was the only vintage CFL Mountaineer card that exists. I was mistaken. There is one other and it is a couple of decades older. One is still in the feeBay sold auctions history, giving me hope that I could soon again see one. Once I do, it will be mine. Based on the final price I saw, I shouldn’t have trouble picking it up.
