I recently scored 7 Andre Dawson certified autographs off of Ebay for less than $30 delivered. This is card #2 of the 7.
The scan does not do the design of this card justice. The ‘industrial’ feel that the Silver-colored gears on this card’s design is visually appealing to me. And the photo of Andre in his old Expos uniform has just a hint of Silver in it too so it blends very well with the overall feel of this card. Tagged as ‘Etchec In Time’, this card is numbered as 58/375 and once again features a beautiful autograph from ‘The Hawk’.

I patrol eBay quite a bit. If I had my way, I would spend quite a bit too. I guess both good and bad things come from being a ‘disciplined’ collector. It’s very rare that I will buy a single card due to the inflated ‘Buy It Now’ pricing and ridicolous shipping fees people will ask for just to ship 1 baseball card. Instead I focus on sellers that offer value, whether it is combined shipping discounts or large lots of the cards I like.
If you’re a player collector, like me, you’re going to want to check out this ebay store – dan-o-78. Although not for everyone, this seller has some very large lots of the players we love. Guys from the 1980’s and 90’s that dominated the game. And although the prices for these lots have high starting prices, the breakdown of these lots is just a penny or two per card.
Do you need 700 Roger Clemens cards – if so click here. Is Tom Glavine your favorite pitcher? If so, you’re going to love this. If the Twins are your favorite team, you’re in luck as he has a great Kirby Puckett lot for sale as well a smaller one of Rod Carew too. Do you only collect Hall of Fame players? Why not grab Brooks Robinson, Steve Carlton, Jim Palmer, or Tom Seaver and stock up on these baseball legends at very affordable prices?
In my opinion, eBay lots are the way to go for the player collector and I think that these are some of the best deals I have seen in quite some time. There are a few lots I have my eyes on, and if times were different and money was no issue, I would be submitting bids on quite a few of these great lots!!!

If you have the day off from work, enjoy it. If you have no school today, enjoy it.
Take the time to relax a little today if you can. 3-day weekends do not come around often enough, so spend the extra time you have doing something you enjoy but can’t do as often as you’d like.
Happy Memorial Day to you all!!!
