I’ve decided since I don’t have much to post with my lack of buying packs anymore, that I would list my Ebay pick-ups in separate posts. To stretch them out and get some more posts for the blog. I’ve picked up quite a few cheap cards in the last couple of weeks so I should have plenty of posts for awhile.

I really didn’t think I’d win this. I only put a bid of $.01 with the seller charging $.50 shipping. I wasn’t too shocked to be winning it on the last day, but was definitely shocked when I got the alert on my phone that I had won. I figured with $.01 bid, I’d lose it to the next bid of $.06. That’s the way my luck is.
One thing I’ve had to get used to when it came to bidding cheaply on Ebay was losing by just a little bit. I place my maximum bids then I don’t follow them at all. I usually don’t know I’m even winning something until I get the alert on my phone. Then I don’t go looking for cards I lost, because I don’t want to know if I lost it by the next bid. This has worked well for me and I haven’t gotten into any bidding wars, which is the biggest mistake you can make when bidding on Ebay.
