Card(s) of the Day - 2014 Bowman : Julio Urias Base Refractor Parallel ( 436 / 500 ) , Mini Chrome Blue Parallel ( 81 / 250 ) and More

I am still trying to learn patience since I've re-entered the hobby but sometimes it is hard but thankfully I had a little here and had a little bad luck on previous auctions which turned into good luck here.

I am trying to acquire all my Urias needs from the Bowman set before they skyrocket. The parallels have been the most troublesome to get my hands on.

As with most cards I usually lose a few auctions before actually winning it. At the time I still had no guide to go by except my personal cost ceiling so with that I kept losing out on this card with most of auctions going over $10. 

The normal sized chrome refractor card also slipped through my hands time and time again with most auctions going for at least $5+. I am foremost a bargain hunter and have to allocate the purge ball funds properly.

Well after numerous losses I found this auction that had both of these cards for a low price but I still had to play the bidding war game. 

Also included were 9 more Urias cards but I did not need these as I have plenty of them but I could always use them for trade, contests or just throw in's. I was hoping that the "odd" wording on the eBay auction title would help my case. It focuses more on the fact that it was a larger lot and not that there were numbered parallels. 

Still wanted to bargain shop this auction and hoped it wouldn't go too high. Surprisingly enough I won the auction for a little over $10 and ended up with a load of Urias. 

Two set needs down and more to give or trade away. A great buy at a great low cost.
