February 2019 Ebay Wins

Last year, I didn’t get around to posting my February ebay wins until June of that year.  I’m a couple months ahead of that schedule now, but I’ve been slacking a bit as I work to get some trade bait stuff going again, which is just about done.

This month is a light one.  I was holding off on buying a lot until I saw what bills might come through for my gall bladder surgery, but I really didn’t have to restrain myself very much as there weren’t too many cards that came up in my price range that month anyway.

Howdy

Yes, there are still Bunt cards I need. In fact, I keep seeing a vastly overpriced Arrieta galaxy orange insert come up. I bet that when comes up as a .99 auction, I’ll have a good shot at it.

Not a terrible shot to have to see a dozen times over

The hunt for 2019 parallels begins.  The vintage stock aren’t the most exciting, but they exist and Topps doesn’t seem too keen on removing a parallel set when they can just add more on top of what’s there, so here we are.

Much better

First look at the black parallels and I can already tell that the parallels are going to look a lot better than the base cards. Of course, I’m in the minority in that I don’t like the design.

I love the subtle refraction on these

Here’s the most expensive purchase of the month and one that I wasn’t really actively seeking. I have my alerts set up for Maddux and Thomas Transcendent and I happened to check the seller’s other listings (as I do from time to time) and saw the Rizzo.  I bid on this and a Maddux hoping to combine shipping, but since this is the last card of the month, you know how that turned out.  Still, it’s nice to knock another card from a car-priced product off the list for under $10.

Yep, only 4 this month. I’ll let you decide how strong it was, but I’m happy to get what I can and happy I’m able to manage getting as much as I do. April will be even lighter than this, but we’ll get there. First will be a slightly different March.
