Default A little different post

We have had too many bad stories so lets hear some good ones.

Here is mine, I rarely do the auction house thing. Fellow member Andy Sandler has a smaller auction house he advertises in the BST section. I have looked before but never seen anything I wanted because I have gotten more into memorabilia the last couple years.

I registered this time because he had a card I really wanted. It is one of those super rare cards that if it shows up you pretty much buy it even if overpriced. I got lucky and got it for WAY less than I would have paid. His 15% BP is very reasonable, he done an excellent job of packaging, and with his shipping fee there is no way he uses it to make extra cash like a lot of AHs do.

I had an amazing experience and highly recommend others check him out.

A T210 Coyle for my Ft Worth team set. T210s are pretty rare and finding a specific player can take a very long time. Well unless you want to pay Deans prices.

Per request here is the card. It isn't much to look at but sometimes you take what you can get.

Have purchased a number of items via Andy`s auction house. Always pleased with his service and try to comb through each of his offerings, you just never know what he`ll come up with.

Great that you were able to find a card you needed, regardless of condition. Many times you have to take what you can get, because you often may not get another chance on such rare cards for quite some time, if ever. Love your acquisition, and definitely a card with some character.

Thanks Jason, if you run across any extra please let me know.

I can't believe our hobby is so bad that nobody has any good stories to share.

Is it we have a Jerry Springer crowd here and F the Waltons.

And it's always good to hear good things. There are lot more of them than bad things in the hobby.
Andy (hey Andy) is always a nice and pleasant guy and always fine to deal with.
