A Gift To Myself – My New Fergie Jenkins Signed Cooperstown Collection Jersey!!!
I had a very solid Ebay holiday season when it comes to being a seller. I was able to offload quite a bit of the cards that did not fit into my collection (primarily from modern box breaks) and it resulted in a PayPal account that saw a nice increase in ‘available balance’.
Instead of shopping for small things that would slowly chip away at my balance and net me a big stack of cards, I sought out some higher end stuff that I normally would not purchase on my own.
Ultimately, I ended up scoring two pretty unique and incredible pieces for my collection.
This is item #1 – a signed Fergie Jenkins Cooperstown Collection Cubs jersey
The jersey is awesome, and it comes inscribed with the inscriptions I would be seeking if I was attempting to get a jersey done on my own. And the Silver paint pen is exactly what I would use if doing this on my own. I could not go wrong with this piece!!
The seller that was offering the jersey is always selling them for $159 as he had Jenkins at a private signing a few years ago and has quite a few extras. Well, during the holidays, he listed a bunch of items with a starting bid price of $0.99 and I was on it from the start. I paid $44.00 for this signed jersey, and it is a perfect complement to my ‘Ultimate Jenkins’ collection.
I cannot believe that I got this piece for so little. Adding a signed jersey to my Fergie Jenkins collection has been on my ‘to do list’ for some time, and to do so at such a high quality rate while extremely affordable allowed me to go after another piece which I will show off in the coming weeks.
As for now, I will sit back and enjoy this beauty!!!
