    Are TAXES effecting your collecting?

    A few months ago Ebay started adding an extra 8.5% or so on all my purchases as I live in New York... I don't mind paying the taxes, but my collecting "brain" is used to the price + shipping. Not enjoying the extra cost, but the only thing certain in life are death and taxes.

    A sad Albert Pujols stat...to me at least

    Since his rookie year Albert batted over .300 for pretty much the first 10 years of his career. In 2012 when he moved to the Angels his season batting average started dipping below .300 and now his lifetime batting average is about to go sub 300 for the first time EVER.... To me its a little...

    Batting .300

    I was just checking and this season there are only 17 players batting .300 or higher, and by the end of the week it may be 15. This is the lowest number in my recent memory... Just thought it was interesting, guess more power numbers are what people are craving.

    Picked up my CRAZIEST Non-Sports AUTO, EVER!

    Made a fair offer and it was accepted. Still a little in shock about adding this to my collection. Sorry to put on the Baseball board.

    Ending in a little bit with a bid of $999! They even went through the trouble of putting a Ud Holo sticker on the back. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Albert-Pujols-Holy-Grail-Rookie-Rc-Auto-2001-Upperdeck-5-25-Jersey-1-1-/381970607981?hash=item58ef38ef6d:g:R5IAAOSw32lYp6uo

    EBay Pickup and a Prospecting Thought

    While perusing EBay this morning for some new rookie autos I saw this freshly posted autographed Pujols card from 2001. I guess the price was "low" because of the edging on the right, so I discounted it even more and made an offer. By the time I got to my office it had been accepted and for...
