    I look for pre-war Hogan cards. I see Hegan or Hagan all the time. Drives me nuts.

    Use wildcards to improve your your findings.

    This works for players with odd names, but might not help with a player named dave jones.

    nol* ryan -nolan
    nolan ry* -ryan


    The * says take everything after nol
    the - says do not include

    https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_fro...olan+ry*+-ryan

    I have a series of these and they can be hardened to provide better results.

    I had to enhance my Hensley Meulens saved search because both sellers and manufacturers misspell his name: (meulens, muelens, meullens, muellens). In searches on Japanese sites, it phonetically translates to Mullen or Mullin, as well.

    The Many Spellings of Marc Maguire.

    I sold a Bowman Chrome Red Ref of Perdro Martinez once. I honored the sale, but it kind of stung. Pretty sure I missed out on some dollars.
