    That's pretty neat. At one point, I was collecting a specific player, grabbing as many low numbered issues as I could. This was back when you could see who you were bidding against on eBay. One day I receive a message from the players Mom, asking me if I could let her win a few cards! She was an extremely nice lady and I ended up sending her everything I had won of her son.

    I've had family members and players buy stuff. Also an owner of a card company.

    quite a few over the years ....

    locally i've dealt with relatives of tom gordon , tom henke , trevor rosenthal , and freddie solomon among others at the flea market...

    online i've sold to a few of the actual players themselves including andrew fie and woods fines (both from 2007 bowman chrome prospects)...

    that said , my two favorites were the aunt of andrew bailey and the mother of tony butler.....got to know both of them a bit , to the extent that i got multiple e-mails from bailey's aunt and not only e-mails but a christmas card and even a few autographs of butler from his mother.....
    I collect any and all South Carolina Gamec0cks in any sport including players and coaches .

    Most probably won't remember the name, but Ryan Anderson (former Mariner's prospect pitcher). His dad was very active on ebay when he was drafted. His stuff was a very easy sell.

    Yes, I've had this happened to me a few times. Someone in the Freeman family purchased a Freddie Freeman card from me before he ever reached the major leagues.

    I know this doesn't count but Brad Zeigler bought a card of his former teammate (Goldschmidt Five Star patch auto) from me just a few weeks ago however I'm well aware he has collected cards for a long time now.
    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> https://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    I actually worked with Tyler Sash (Hometown hero, 2011 Rookie with NY Giants) to buy cards for his mom, since he didn't have time to scour eBay.

    When he passed away, I went to the visitation and gave his mom a 1/1 that I had purchased years ago. It definitely belonged to her more than me.

    Brandon Wood's mom contacted me and asked y the hell I still spent money on her son's cards...................not true
    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    Bought a Notre Dame FB gamer of Aaron Lynch. Had it listed on Ebay. His brother tried to buy it from me saying Aaron really wants it, but he only wanted to pay $250. I passed and eventually sold it to his uncle for $600.

    A long time ago I had someone who claimed to be related to Dwight Gooden. The woman was a flake and ended up not paying for the item she won!

    The opposite, but I bought items from Spook Jacobs on ebay a few years before he died. He sent me some extra goodies. Seemed like a really nice man.

    The last one I remember was buying something from Bump Wills, former player himself and son of Maury Wills.
