With the only other bidder having 0 feedback, I seriously doubt that sale goes through. BTW awesome collection, I always enjoy seeing player collectors of non super stars but I sure remember how dominant and fun to watch Wakefield was at times.Got hosed tonight, a 2004 Topps Black was ended, only the second I've seen in the decade or so I really started this collection. Waited til the end and dropped what no figured would have been a number was way over anyone else's bid. $150 and I wasn't the high bidder, it took a few precious seconds for me to understand the app was telling me I wasn't the high bidder. Final price was $159.50!!! J F'ing C! I can't believe it...
Surprise, surprise, I got a message from the seller stating the winning bidder informed him that he couldn't/wouldn't pay so I got a "second offer". I told him no way would I pay that much since I was essentially bidding against myself at that point. I made him more than a generous offer, particularly since I suspect he was the fake bidder I was up against. Hopefully I get the last Topps Black I need without further incident.
So how did that turn out??
Can I ask why you collect Wakefield?
After my brief hobby hiatus in the early 2000s I wanted to start a new collection centered around a current Red Sox player and ultimately chose him because he had been a mainstay on the roster, and the ultimate team guy, plus the knuckler is cool.
