Here's who was included: Luis Tiant (229 career wins), George Foster (only player to hit 50 HR in either the 70s or 80s), Darrell Evans (414 HRs), Lance Parrish (right there with Fisk and Carter as best catchers of the 80s), Earl Weaver (legendary skipper), Moose Skowron (on five WS winners), Bobby Thomson ("Shot Heard 'Round the World"), Jim Piersall (great baseball character), Maury Wills (stolen base king of the 60s), and Ron Cey (incredible third-baseman). Plus, each card was bagged, keeping the cases nice and scratch-free.
|At $3.14 a piece, and no additional shipping cost (see below), these were a sweet deal.|
Apparently, he started a hot sauce company, and his day job is driving around distributing hot sauce to stores and restaurants. I love spicy food (I'm known to occasionally snack on jalapeños, and very often splash a healthy dose of hot sauce on my meals), so that was a happy surprise right up my alley. It's really good hot sauce, too.
I figure I should repay Adam's kindness by giving him a plug. So yeah, if you're into hot sauce, check out Portland Pepper Sauce Company. Good stuff.
A bunch of nifty cards at a very fair price, personally delivered directly to my hands for free.. plus a tasty bottle of hot sauce thrown in free.. all adds up to possibly my best eBay transaction ever. Please feel free to brag about your best eBay moments in the comments. Always fun to hear about great finds and generous sellers.
Great story! Def the best transaction ever! Free hot sauce!ReplyDelete
Love this set! You definitely hit a home run with this purchase. One of my best purchases was a Michael Strahan autographed card for $4 + $2.25 shipping. It wasn't an auction though... it was a BIN.ReplyDelete
That's a big boat load of beautiful cards. Helluva deal. Nice work. Free delivery + add-on hot sauce = perfect deal.ReplyDelete
Best $30 I've seen in a while. Congrats.ReplyDelete
