Default Player lots check it out! Gamble time

I just bought this..
http://www.ebay.com/itm/321054082265...84.m1439.l2649
Over under of actually getting decent cards?! He's got lots of other 90s stars like Ripken, Jeter, ect. Hopefully it's not 850 1992 topps Griffeys but for $100 ill take the gamble.


HERE ARE THE RESULTS: overall money well spent for me. I got some real nice stuff, and a bunch of newer base that I didn't have. ( scanner broke sorry for crappy pics)

I don't trust either but I think it will be fun to go thru 850 Griffey cards with the potential for some nice stuff

Well I will scan what I get. I've wasted my money on worse things before lol. Considering $400 will get you a $40 return for 5 star ill take a gamble that 850 cards are worth $110

Could have at least made a scan of the nine best cards on a single scan. Leads me to believe the top cards may only be 1994 Fleer and 1996 Topps base cards

He has a Jeter lot also. If your Griffey lot has some decent stuff in it, the Jeter lot may be worth a shot at $78 for 145 cards with no dupes.



But probably not.

How bad can it be at 145 cards? Lol. I'm sure if youn scanned every card and let it ride you would get at least a dollar per no?

Depends. If it's a bunch of base Topps then no. If it were 145 inserts then I would say that it is a good deal. Just seems a little iffy considering he does not put any details at all, just a generic description that is the same for every auction. I hope you find some good ones in your lot for sure. Please update us when it comes in!

Hell no. Look:

derek jeter| eBay

Even ignoring time wasted, these all lost money:

Derek Jeter 1998 Topps 160 New York Yankees Card | eBay

Derek Jeter 1998 Score Spring Training RT262 New York Yankees Card | eBay

Derek Jeter 2000 UD Hitter Club New York Yankees Card | eBay

Derek Jeter 2000 Topps 15 New York Yankees Card | eBay

ETC.

My official guess is it will be well worth the $99. Even if every single card is a base card, at 9 cents a piece ill at least enjoy going thru it. I believe it will contain some decent $10-$15 inserts and at the very least help build my collection up.

And about those Jeter auctions. If they started them at $1 I bet they would have still sold.

I asked the seller how many inserts were in the lot and he said 15. The rest are base. Definitely not worth it, at least on the Jeter lot.

Subscribing to see what you end up receiving. Good luck, I hope it works out, though that was a big gamble.
