My 39 Cent eBay Purchase

It was a bargain. 

While my opinions (and especially team leanings) may not always align with his, @WatchTheBreaks is a good Twitter follow if you want to know what's going on in the world of sports cards. Thanks to a tip from him, I was alerted to an eBay coupon code that allowed you to purchase any item over $3.00 with a $3.00 discount. Toss in some listings that have free shipping, and, well... you do the math.

It was my first Ozzie Smith purchase in awhile, but hopefully not my last this spring. I've done so much work on my want lists lately that I'm hoping to soon get back to actually filling those lists, since I don't expect you all to do all that work for me. The card is from last year's Triple Threads set and is one of the endless varieties of color parallels. Since I won't be "chasing the rainbow" as they say, this will have to just do for now. It's not bad.


  1. A bargain indeed! Gotta love ebay discount codes and the people who publicize them. Congrats!

  2. I too found out about the code from Ivan, and thankfully it was still early enough that I was able to take advantage of it as well.

  3. Really nice pick up for the price! I was able to land a Tine relic for a little over a buck.

  4. My friend told me about this promotion, but I was so busy that day I dropped the ball. Oh well... glad you were able to take advantage of it. Nice card.

  5. I'm not on Twitter and missed that coupon code but it's nice to see some bloggers took advantage of it. That's a sharp looking Ozzie parallel!
