I had traded cards via connections made through Twitter once or twice, but only recently dipped my toe in buying and selling on there. It's more of a risk without the eBay buyer protection plan backing you up, but I guess if you trust the other guy, it's worth it for both parties to avoid the ol' feeBay.
@Buymycardboard posted a bunch of stuff recently, and a Paul Goldschmidt lot of hits got my attention. Dividing the total price between the cards, it was too good of a deal for me to pass up. Probably would have ran me twice the price to buy these cards from individual eBay sellers.
I need to count 'em up, but I'm pretty sure I've now reached the 100-card threshold with Goldy, and these autos and relics definitely helped me "complete" this PC in style. I mean, I'll probably still add to my Goldy PC with some regularity-- he might be my favorite active guy to collect (though with the D-backs' butt-ugly new uniforms, that might change going forward)-- but now I can use my Hundred Card Club method of collecting to justify focusing my pursuits (and money) elsewhere. (To refresh you on the Hundred Card Club concept, as a player collector who values closure, yet in all but very rare instances could never collect all available cards of the many players I collect, I set a goal of 100 different cards, and "call it good" after that, though I will still occasionally add more cards as "icing on the cake" or whatever.)
That's it for today. Thanks for reading!
