Since I started aggressively perusing Listia a couple months ago, I've experienced many ups and downs. I've had a lot more success than failures and I can't really complain. I never buy points (once I bought 500 points for $1 to verify my account), and I've never listed an auction. I've won over 10 auctions now and I think I've gotten my money's worth. In the past week I have gotten quite a few envelopes of cards. Today I will show off a few.
We begin with some cards I have shown often on here. I have gotten a few here and there, but I knew I needed the Rico Rossy card. I spent 499 points on these four cards, which is a bit more than I wanted, but now I am only down to I think 2 or three more cards and I will complete the team set.
I remember this set when I was growing up. It was a joint Upper Deck and Sonic set and I have a few of them already. The other day I was looking and three or four were listed and I bid on all of them. As each of them ended I kept losing. I decided I was going to go all in for this one. I won it with 606 points, which I knew I overpaid for, but I was happy to get. I got it within a couple of days, but when I opened it, it was bent in a couple spots. It was packaged in 4 pieces of notebook paper. No penny sleeve or anything. Just notebook paper inside an envelope. I guess I can't complain, since I basically got it just from watching videos to get points. I need to see how many cards I have and hope to complete this set within a couple years. It's only like 20 or so cards, it shouldn't be too hard.
This last set really excited me. I love oddball sets, specifically ones from food products. I like marketing and advertising, so mix it with trading cards and I'm in. These 4 card are from 1991, and I mainly got it for the Ozzie Smith. I don't remember having these growing up, but they remind me of a set I would want. Though I got it for Ozzie, I think I like the Biggio best. It doesn't look like the card was touched up at all and shows no logo's. All solid players, I was a bit surprised I got these for only 300 points. Again I was the only bidder, but I probably would have gone up to at least 500. Out of all of the cards listed, I won these first. Since I got them fairly cheap I think that spoiled me so I never pay too much for cards.
That will wrap it up for today, but next time, I will feature another lot I won off Listia, which was all of one player. Thank you for reading and have a great night.
