    These older sets were some of the nicest autograph cards ever produced. That is why I chase them now. Those 5 Epic Signatures autos I got last night cost me $34 delivered. Each, and every one of those 5 guys are in the Hall Of Fame.

    Super stoked to add another extremely short printed auto tonight for my Parkhurst set. I finally joined up on COMC yesterday, and found this one was for sale at $44, which is exactly what the last one on ebay sold for (one previous to that one sold for $60). I transferred some funds into my account, and sent an starting offer of $35., and the card owner accepted it. :D

    I actually bought this card in the summer off a very reputable guy off HI, but he never sent it, and after a month of waiting, I contacted him, and he said he forgot. I told him just to send it right away, and all would be forgotten, but another week went by, and I heard nothing from him, so I filed a dispute with paypal, and esculated it to a claim right away. He finally decided to contact me after paypal froze his funds, and said he would send it to me if I resent the funds back to him. I told him I would pay for it as soon as it arrived here, because I wasn't going through another 6 weeks of his excuses, and BS. Never heard back from him again, and he got himself banned for life on HI because of this. This guy had 130+ feedback over there. hard to believe one would want to ruin their reputation over $30? :rolleyes:

    Anyways, after thinking I may never see another one of these, I finally have one on the way. :D I'm down to needing 32 now to finish this set. Lots of expensive ones to get, so it will take a while. :(

    Thanks! One of the best parts of collecting what I do, is knowing how great a deal I've been scoring on these awesome additions to my PC. I probably won't ever be able to finish the Parkhurst set, as there are about 15, or so that are just so rare, and priced so high. Even when some of these pop up on occassion, you have to have the paypal ready, and waiting, and that's gonna be very hard to do, especially when ones like the Mario Lemieux go for about a grand. I've never even seen a Beliveau, and not too many Roy, or Bourque have ever surfaced. Realistically, I can probably obtain another 15, or there-a-bouts. The last 15 are gonna be very tough.

    Made a small purchase off COMC tonight for some older Topps cards mostly rookies except the Gretzky.

    Another lot from COMC. The 3 84-85 Gretzky's are Topps (all pretty decently centered, and appear to be minty), the 2 Gretzky LL are 82-83 OPC. All 5 cards were $12.50 delivered.

    I agree, I think if you are gonna blow money on cardboard, having Gretzky pictured on it is a probably good idea.

    Not sure if you remember, but a while back I mentioned that I lost out on this card, because it got way out of hand price wise. (http://www.ebay.ca/itm/300957933338?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649)

    Another one
    came, and went since then with a much better price, but still too expensive, until about a half hour ago. (http://www.ebay.ca/itm/300991133187?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649)

    This one ended, and I got it. So happy to get this one for the Parky set at under $30 delivered. Much better than paying $156. :D (http://www.ebay.ca/itm/121203935933?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649).

    Okay, so I missed out on the auction I was watching by 2 minutes. :( Card sold for $10 less than what my max bid would have been. It was a guy Lafleur auto. Oh, well! So instead, I transfered a bit of paypal into my COMC account, and bought these 5 cards. Just need to pick up the Jessie Barfield auto, and I'm close to completing all my older Jays autos project. Probably will get a Roberto Alomar, and a few others like Molitor, Gruber, and Winfield.
