Card(s) of the Day - 2013 Bowman Chrome : Base Blue Parallels ( Multiple Players )

Another nice little haul in my never ending quest of the blue parallel set of 2013 Bowman Chrome. This though was a little sweeter than others. For the most part I've been picking up the common players and/or the low cost cards but I ran across this Jose Fernandez card that books at over $12. Didn't want nor going to pay what the seller wanted for it but upon a closer look I saw he also had another auction up that included more blue included a Ryu card ( already had one but I could use another for trade/contest purposes ).

I would be either in on both or in on neither. It would be a great bargain if I could get all but I had to be carefully not to be stuck with one auction without winning the other. Jose was first and I was able to win it at the seller's starting asking price and then I moved onto the other auction that ended just a minute later and even though I gave myself some cushion I ended up being the only one to bid on that auction as well.

Separately these auctions were not a great value but combined I was able to pick up a higher priced card and fill in holes with the other commons while also picking up another Ryu card which I know I can trade for something else. Overall a good eBay purchase.

Bargain priced Fernandez, a Ryu that is available for trade and overpriced Phillie Howard

  1. You know I am going to want that Ryu. I'll have to start finding some things for you soon.
