My best e-bay find!!!!
Hi all, thought I would share some pics of some great ebay cards I have received over the past couple of weeks. Happy with all of them. Here they are with pics and commentary.

Been looking for this Sofia Eng Wild Wild West movie auto card for a loooooooong time. Got it with BIN for a good price (for me at least: $40)

Bought this one for my gf's birthday later this year. She has a thing for Julian McMahon and I thought she would like this card because she can see his face on it, not the mask of Dr. Doom.

Got this one for quite cheap BIN of $20. Like the little bubblegum bubble she draws on each auto card.

This great card was mine for about $8 incl. shipping! Got it from an ebay seller from the UK and it came super quickly. Always been a fan of his, loved I Spy as a kid.

This one is for my Twilight Zone collection. Big fan of his, especially in Adam-12.

OK, no idea why I bought this really. Only $7 and I like these Fans of the Game autos.

Thanks for looking; really enjoying seeing all the ebay finds! Big Grin

Jack,
Well done on the cards - I have the Milner myself (though as a Pack Pull!)
One thing, any chance you could (in future) make the impages a little smaller - this helps those Card Talkers who are on Dial-up and for whom large images tend to slow down the browsing experience! Big Grin
Au Res.,
Paul

Hi Paul, sure I will make them smaller next time. I have my scanner on a default size and can't find the booklet to figure out how to change the size. I'll ask my gf (she knows all this computer stuff) Smile

Only just a modestly good find, a charmed PO3 Adrian Paul A13 for a $25 BIN. 1 of just 2 autos I never pulled from all the boxes I opened.

Another decent Charmed buy, Connections dual phoebe/paige PWC1 pieceworks for $25 BIN. I've been checking the charmed stuff more often lately to see what pre-sells for conversations pop up and I guess it's paying off. Big Grin

Last night I bought a Buffy Season 5 A27 for £17. I wasn't even looking for any cards. My sister was buying Ralph Lauren jumpers. So, don't know where this seller came from, lol.

That's one more Buffy auto down. Thumb Up

Perhaps it was people who thought £99 for a piece of cardboard was not a good deal. Shake Head

It is a nice card though and will look nice in your collection. Smile

Re the Xena auction I won: It was the Xena Beauty&Branw set I recieved. I contacted the seller, and they stand by their listing that they are costume cards. They did however agree to a refund if I sent the cards back Smile

Big Grin well they have got costumes on them. Big Grin

Actually there is an 18 card set for Babylon 5 that is a costume set but does not contain bits of costume. It is pictures of the costumes in the show.
Easy to get misled if you're not careful. You could list this as 18 costume cards and be doing nothing wrong.

Thats what happens to sellers who do not take Paypal. International bidders would have just walked away even though they wanted to bid much higher than this.

Good for you though. Thumb Up

I won an 18 card costume set from Babylon 5 a few months back for £0.99. It must have been these. However they got damaged in a flood after i'd paid for them so i ended up with a refund and i'll never know!!!
