eBay mailday - Adam Lind auto
Hi, my name is Marie and I am addicted to cardboard. The first step is admitting you have a problem. Though I have no idea what the second step is, I am pretty sure it involves fixing that problem. Clearly, I have no intention of fixing my addiction.
I picked up this card sometime last week on eBay for a whole $1.74 which is well worth it to me. It is a 2007 Topps Co-Signers dual autograph of Adam Lind and Delwyn Young.
Oddly enough today I was browsing on eBay and saw a 2007 Masterpieces auto of Lind that I really wanted because it is on card, however the bidding got to $3.50 and for some reason I find that kind of ridiculous. I understand in the scheme of things that $3.50 is not alot of money to spend on an autograph, and of a person who I collect. The problem here is that I am just not really sure if I think he is worth $3.50 for one card. Maybe I am crazy. Don't say it.
Some people think he could have a break out year this year, but I will wait to see it with my own eyes before believing speculation. My whole reason for starting this in the first place is based on speculation, and the fact that I could scoop up cards at a cheap price. Then again compared to Pujols anything is a cheap price. We'll see what happens.
