My 89 Cent eBay Purchase

I can like relic cards if I want to. 

For about fifty cents less than last time, I took advantage of another eBay code thanks to @WatchTheBreaks and picked up an early-'00s curio featuring my old pal Jim Edmonds. The deal, same as last time, was a code that gets you three dollars off basically anything that is priced at more than three dollars. With many sports card listings on eBay having free shipping, this is one of those rare times where you can actually get something you want for mere pennies.

I know that I'm not supposed to be excited about memorabilia cards anymore, and anyone that has been around these cards as long as I have probably uses Jimmy Baseball cards to blow their nose on. Still, I need to work on my player collections a bit, and this was a nice get (for me.) That's all that matters, folks.

I liked Edmonds a lot back in the day, well enough to have a small PC. I'd say this card was worth $3 and some loose change, with free s/h.

I still collect memorabilia cards... especially the ones from the late 90's and early 2000's. But I'm like you... I won't pay a premium (unless it's someone like Clemente or Aaron).
