If people didn't have Christmas fast approaching I wouldn't be at all surprised to see the same card easily top $100+.

    I thought the Jeter diffractor would go for over $100. Happy to win it at $80. I didn't bid on the last couple of Jeter diffractors that were on eBay and went for $75 to $80 without my help because they were duplicates for me. As to the whining about my bidding method, I just don't have the time to sit and watch bidding over a several-day period and keep adding tiny incremental bids like the pre-teens do. Wish I could spend all my extra time on hobbies, but I have a business to run and a family to take care of.

    Funny, yesterday afternoon I stopped by an LCS that I rarely frequent. The owner is a grouchy old bird who complained years ago that I was being unfair to LCS owners like him by frequenting the Internet to collect cards. He didn't do eBay for some pretty bogus reasons. Yesterday I did pick up a couple of nice Pedro cards from him at a fair price, and picked eight misc. 1998 Teks out of his large 10-cent box. He then asked me if I was interested in what turned out to be a beat-to-crap 1998 Tek box. I gave him the $50 he asked for the box that he insisted was "as is" and non-returnable. I cracked the box this afternoon. While the box was pretty badly crushed and damaged, the cards were fine. The box definitely looked old, and he said the box had been in his cellar since '98. Lot of oddities with the packs. Many packs were missing the blue check-list. Nine packs had five cards each, including the four with diffractors. Many of the packs looked like the cards were scrambled--reversed, upside-down, etc. But they weren't damaged, and I would swear they had never been opened or tampered with. 85 commons plus 4 diffractors. I got two new diffractor patterns: a Larry Walker and an Edgar Martinez. Also two pattern 1 duplicate diffractors, one of Bernie Williams and one of Brian Jordan. I checked the commons against a bunch of want lists I have. I got one of Don's last 40 of 8100, a p. 1 Bagwell. I'll check with Shadowking86, Brian26, RustyGreerFan, and BenG76 about a few cards on their lists. Sorry I didn't hit the others people are looking for.

    Rich - very happy for you on the find! Great job! I love stories like this, and definitely we will discuss the Venturas

    Also - kudos on picking up the Jeter diffractor. Anyone who doesn't snipe these days is foolish.

    Exactly. I cannot believe anyone would actually have a problem with that. Also, Rich is one of the classiest guys I've ever talked to from this board, so I don't take kindly to anyone here trying to throw him under the bus with quotes like "you know who". The fact that someone posted about that auction beforehand to make sure it got more views to try to drive up the price to make it harder to win also says a lot about that person.

    Congrats on picking up a Jeter diffractor. Those are certainly hard to come by especially these days. I stopped at around $ 40 or $ 50 which was way more than I intended going to go but pattern# 55 is a cool pattern.

    I thought the Jeter would actually go higher with his NY popularity. I don't think 10 of each particular card# pattern # diffractor cards is correct though. Nobody knows and Topps wont divulge.
    I wasnt willing to ante up so more power to those who did..
