There was a beautiful Lou Gehrig signed photo for sale in my area a few years back. Unfortunately it was signed in pencil and the clarity against the background was less than great, but it was authentic nonetheless. He wanted a lot and we weren't able to make it work, but that is about the best piece I've seen on craigslist. Just bought a big cooler for my boat though.

Imagine how much sports memorabilia you can store on your boat now!

Paid $14,600 for about $4000 wholesale of stuff. Spent 50k points to fly to Phoenix to buy it. Once I got there, the condition wasn't nearly as good as described but I was already there and felt like I needed to honor my word.

Some of the pre-war ended up being reprints and the high end auto stuff was mostly forged, but other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?

Needless to say, my days of searching Craigslist for deals are over.

Default Craigslist purchases

My best Craigslist buys include an extremely rare KC Chiefs nodder, a tough KC Athletics nodder, several vintage pennants including 1955 Brooklyn and two SB IV pennants, and a group of about 40 1952 Topps high numbers. The cards were mostly in fair to vg condition, but the price was right at about $3/card. My latest find was a program from the Oakland Raiders first regular season game in 1960. I certainly don't search Craigslist all of the time, just every now and then. Most stuff is uninteresting and/or overpriced, but every once in awhile....

I search most every day but seldom find anything. I got a sheet of 1962s (9 cards) for $5 which included a couple cards I needed...I think a Spahn or something.

I did get a nice collect for $1000 out of a nieghboring community which included most of a 1967 set in pretty nice conidion (Seaver, Brooks, Carew included ... Seaver came back a PSA 5 and a set of 1971s (mid grade) that I came out well on, though not great on.

I bought a Troy-bilt 'tiller on Craigslist. Nice early model that was garage kept.

I've sold some junk-era wax on there - pretty cheap though.

Found this on Craigslist yesterday and hope to go pick it up today. It is a 14ft with mesh dovetail. Great for hauling college furniture around the state. (or a Kubota tractor or Scag ZTR on it's off time )

As for cards, I don't look there for them...

Nice looking trailer, Leon. I purchased this one years ago for what I thought was a great price. I use to use it for hauling my atv's and other stuff back and forth to our trailer, but, due to my SIL, I haven't seen it in about 3 yrs. (I sold the atv's and have a truck anyways)

I've had a lot of success on CL with my other main hobby - vintage musical instruments. In the last couple years I have flipped a 1975 Tele (bought $900, sold $1400), a 1980 Gibson 335S (bought $1000 sold $1200), a 2003 Rickenbacker 370/12 (bought $1000, sold $2100), a Fender custom shop '60 reissue (bought $1300, sold $1600), and a few others. I also snagged a 1966 Fender Princeton and a 1963 Ampeg Superreverb for about half their value, but held onto those.

As for cards, all that I've seen for sale around here are binders full of junk wax for $250.
