Won them all for $148!!

Probably my BEST E-bay find.


I've only got two of the Diamond Sparkle parallels, bought only for completion's sake. In hand though they are sharp looking cards and glad I bought them. I bet the whole set looks great in pages.

Fantastic price for near enough the lot, and for a scarce set too. Was Star Wars 1977 in the lot? That one usually goes for quite a bit.

Strangely enough I had been building my first set of them when I came across this ebay find. So I have nearly two complete sets. I actually have 2 of the Star Wars. The two stupid priced ones seem to be the Garbage Pail and the Mars Attacks. The Mars one I do need.

Waiting patiently.

I don't think I have seen any of the crazy high price requests actually sell as of yet.

Could be worth that much....who knows?

Well that's not a regular Terminator 2 pack. It says Case Topper Pack right on the front. I think the Seller must not have known what that meant or that there were 3 hits in it. Otherwise it makes no sense to sell it for so little. They could have just opened the pack and gotten more for the contents.

Printing plates don't do too much for me, but that sketch is quite good. Congrats.

Picked up this beauty on eBay today for $158.05. Thinking I'll keep it sealed (though the lure of a sketch card is pretty irresistible).

Got Buffy Palz first series #1 to 9 for $25 last week.
Even though I already have the set it seemed too good to let go.

I just bought a Tommy Lee Jones MIB autograph card by Inkworks for $275. I think it's a really good deal considering TLJ only signed 25 or 50 cards. I sold mine for $880 USD two years ago. Definitely keeping this one.

I got my latest Holy Grail card recently. The Tatiana Maslany as Krystal Goderitch from Orphan Black autograph for only $80 BIN. I was so excited!!! I must have seen it right after they put it up because the last one went for much more than that.

I've been looking every day for the past I don't know how long for this card!! Yay!!

Yes, good for them. For a several years now these certified autograph cards of better known celebrities and TV series stars have been woefully overpriced as a group. It's starting to change on the secondary market for autos that are a couple of years old and more. Hot demand is focused on others and truer evaluations are being made.

It is giving collectors the opportunity to pick up autograph cards at prices that they can justify, while still knowing that most celebrities are actively signing for money or pleasure and their supply will likely continue to grow really until death.

As an example, Maslany is an excellent buy at $80, but for the $300 - $400 range that her Orphan Black autos are still carrying in the price guide, it's very hard for even a fan to support that. Tommy Lee at $275 is wonderful, not just because of the card rarity, but because he isn't going to do a Ford and start a personal signing gig.

For all the talk of Robert Downey Jr.'s Ironman auto burning it up after Endgame, the autograph card market is correcting itself downward for the large majority. It's not a negative thing, it's good for the hobby base as a whole. More collectors will be able to find what they want at reasonable prices and more autos will change hands.
