Really nice grab... i think it didnt get bids not because of postage but he didnt use any searchable words in the title (gotta love those sellers)... on the page it says only 7 people visited the auction... an auction is only as good as how many people see it!.

Picked up two nice cards recently, one a good price the other about its cost, but wanted it for ages.
First Up Hellboy Ron Perlman Inkwork Autograph about £18.00 with delivery
Second up Lost A1 Evangeline Lilly about £60.00. I have wanted this for so long, just A3 Shannon auto to buy now!!
Both nice!! Just waiting for them to arriveThis message has been edited. Last edited by: Stu_H,

I recently won a James Fox auto (Mr. Salt-Veruca's dad) and his costume card from the Charlie and the Chocolate factory set for $5.00. Total was $10 with S&H....could not be more pleased...

Not strictly speaking an eBay bargain, but I got two cards today that I never thought I'd be able to afford - and from a local store too! Both from The Avengers Series 2 - the John Cleese and Ronnie Barker autograph cards - the former for £7.50, the latter for £10. On eBay, both cards have been going for three or 4 times that, if not more! Unfortunately, my website host is down at the moment, otherwise I'd post scans... The hosting site is back so:

your local shop must be struggling to sell at that price

I was pretty pleased to get a full set of the single costume cards for Xena: Dangerous Liasions for $100 + shipping... Worked out to be a little less than $10 per card + I got them all in one fell swoop!

A John Cleese auto card for £7.50?
The chap at the shop actually reduced both prices - originally they were priced at £10 (Cleese) and £15 (Barker) but when I said I'd like to have both, but couldn't afford them he knocked the prices down - I think he got them cheaply as part of a job lot (he did have a few other Avengers cards on display) JTH, to be honest, cards are not the main part of this chap's business - he mostly does comics (it's my usual Local Store), and has the occasional box of cards (from which I've been very lucky - this was where I pulled the Nimoy/Shatner dual autograph card!) so I don't think he's quite up on the current prices of things. We did chat about values whilst he was processing my purchase and he was quite surprised (though not, to my eyes, dismayed) when I mentioned the sort of prices the Barker went for - as I said above, I think he got them for a good price, so was happy to take a profit from them - even if it wasn't as high as he might have got elsewhere.
Out of interest, is the Cleese as rare as some of the recent eBay auctions suggest? One stated it was limited to only 150... Au Res., Paul
