A major score with this card's acquisition gets me a couple steps closer to completing my 2015 Topps series 2 wish list.
These framed, limited parallels are beautiful and hard to come by. The print run is just 20 so there are only so many chances to pick one up. I lost out on a couple of auction as they went for a little north of $40. Now this was before book values came out on them and I assumed this card would be somewhere in the $25-30 ballpark. I was wrong as it clocked in at a meager $20. Thankfully I didn't win one of those other copies as I would have felt like an ass.
Few days later this one popped up on eBay with a 99 cent starting bid and I was determined to win it. Only a few bids prior to mine at the last minute which won it for me. Total? $6.50. Now that is a good deal. A few more showed up after I won my copy and one sold for a little more than $12 and another for over $40. Right price at the right time for me.
Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.
