Late Night Listia Win

Even though I was initially discouraged with Listia in the beginning, I've slowly spent more and more time perusing what they have to offer. I've even held a few auctions, so I've got a fair amount of credits to "spend".

However, I find most of the auctions quite laughable. You want me to bid 499 credits for a 1990 Donruss Dennis Rasmussen card? Sweet, sign me up.

I did happen to land a lot of twelve 2007 Upper Deck Goudey cards (at about 1 o'clock in the morning) for just over 500 credits, and it arrived rather quickly...with creative packaging as well.

This was inserted into a bubble mailer and even though the mailer had started to rip a bit, the cards arrived just fine.

Nine of these were the "red back" version and three were the "green back". I'm sure this was done so collectors would feel the need to have complete sets of both.

Well, I can tell you this blogger does not fall for such marketing shenanigans.


  1. I think some of the card "sellers" on there have no clue about the current state of the hobby. Just trying to unload that childhood collection of junk wax that they thought would make them rich.
