Did you ever look at your PC and wonder why you collect a certain player? Every time I look for something on eBay lately, I promise you it's never Adam Lind. It's not so much that I'm over collecting him (though I might be), but that the remaining cards I want of him are stupidly overpriced.
My buddy Dan from the card shop somehow ended up with two of Lind's 2010 Topps Updates & Highlights auto's and left one for me at the shop. I think he sympathizes with my stupidity in continuing this collection, and that is definitely because he also collects Lind. I bet if I asked him why he continues to do so, I'd be entertained by the answer at the very least.
I love the card, and the fact that I have super cool friends who like giving me presents because I'm super awesome.
So now I will share a few cards here that I really want, but for like 1/10th of the price. Honestly, I would LOVE to know how sellers can list Adam Lind autographs for more than $5.00 simply based on his performance last season (or lack thereof).
Adam Lind 2007 Chrome red refractor (I will give you that it is an auction, but come on.)
Adam Lind 2007 Chrome white refractor auto
Adam Lind 2010 Triple Threads auto /50
Adam Lind 2009 Icons auto /99
Adam Lind 2007 Bowman's Best /50 This card has been on eBay for over a year, the price has not budged in that year either...
This last one, I want someone to explain to me why this person bothered wasting their time scanning and listing the card.
Adam Lind 2007 Sweet Spot auto
And there have been two offers! That's might be even funnier than someone listing this card.
