Andre Dawson 2013 Topps Rookie Of The Year Commemorative Card – SWEET!!!
Talk about showing off the maximum amount of patience as it comes to the buying of a baseball card.
This one was all about restraint. As soon as I saw the card hit the secondary market, my collecting instincts kicked in and I wanted to leap at it!!
But, cooler heads prevailed and I withheld making any bids to get a better understanding of what kind of money a card like this would cost me by letting a few pass me by so I could track their selling prices.
And let me tell you, this strategy worked for me – worked very well!! By the time that I paid for mine, I saved 60% versus what this card was selling for during the first week it was released by Topps. My purchase price of $4.95 plus another $2.00 for shipping was comfortable for me, and it allowed me to shift the other $6-$7 that others paid for the same card to another collecting goal.
Here is the card:
It is a beauty!!!
