Default EBAY Miracles

In light of this weeks EBAY offerings...a purported authentic BL 460 Cobb, if real 2 of 2 known...and just in a fake T206 Wagner supposedly sold off the bay.

There have truly been some EBAY miracles over the years.

Let's reminisce!

I remember a boston store ruth card maybe 10 years ago on ebay. There was a whole bunch of raw Boston Stores from the same seller. And this Ruth was nice...ex-ex-mt I'd say.

I tried to get my dad to go halfsies on it with me...he wasn't interested in "investing" in old cardboard.

It was definitely real...and was suh-weet.

I remember lots of others...Share!

There was that Sid Smith Brown Old Mill that was listed as just an Old Mill. Jerry bought it for around $50 back in 2013. He subsequently sold it to Johnny, and now Ryan owns it.

Not vintage, but I once saw a Micheal Payton / Eric Kresser Marshall university phone card on eBay...the early years. If only I had never seen it I would not have fruitlessly chased it all these years.

This Manning Brown Lenox that was listed on ebay last year with a group of
cards and the buyer got the seller to end the auction early for $500.

Sealed Fan Craze set from a seller selling off new old stock out of a drug store in a small town in Kansas. I think Leon got it, I may be wrong. I was an underbidder.

If that was in 2004, I was the winner. I also ended up getting a second set from the guy.

Another find was the 1921 Herpolsheimer's 1 of 1s.

Nothing on that scale, I've gotten some good finds that went unnoticed.

Plenty of stamps, a couple cards that graded really well, but not exactly pricy stuff.

Maybe my favorite was a set of four bike "helmets" That were listed sort of wrong and I was the only bidder. The listing said they were from the 84 Olympics, but they were too short. What they were after some checking, was a set of helmets from the US team from 1983, and almost certainly from the team pursuit team. That team won gold at the Pan-Am games, went to the world championships, and had some internal struggles. So they decided no to compete. Enter the Russian team, among the best in the world at the time. They asked to borrow the helmets, and were allowed to.
So race used by two different teams,

The finest known Hubel postcard of Cobb was snagged by a fellow Net54 member.
