Man, my mailbox really does not want me to get to all of the pack break posts in the queue, does it? Today I came home to another nice pickup for my Jimmy Howard collection. This time it's another piece of my nearly complete 05-06 Beehive rainbow.
One thing that this purchase reminded me of is how important patience can be in a hobby like this. I've seen this same card on eBay with BIN's anywhere from $5 to $25, but never went for them thinking I could find a great deal one of these days. Well, that day came recently and I ended up getting it for just $0.99 plus shipping.
I already have the base, red, and beige versions of this card. Now I just need to track down the matte version, which is numbered to just 25 copies. I've seen one so far, and it was BGS graded at like a 9.5 or something with a BIN of more than $100 on eBay. No thanks, I'll wait that one out too.Who knows, maybe I'll get lucky with that one too.
Have you ever waited years for a card to come around at a great price? Like I said earlier, I could've had this card several times over if I was willing to pay a bit more for it, but just a little patience saved me a lot of money.
