For this to work out you need to convert those cards to cash and then go after something higher end.

Right now you have too many cards without a consistent theme which will make it harder to package in a trade.

Keep us updated on your quest.

Long awaited update....

I am trying to sell off as much as I can and begin to focus on higher end cards.

Some people have been posting that these type of threads are bad. Well i'm only 17 and probably could never own the card I want any other way. I enjoy the challenge and it makes the hobby fun. What do you guys think?

Transaction 10:
Sold the Sanu for $7.65 to greggdemo. After fees and shipping comes out to be $5.50.

Transaction 11:
Sold the following on eBay through some friends:

Bo Ryan Autographics
Terry Porter Autographics
Hakeem GU
RG3 Platinum RC

for a combined value of....


$37.47 !!!! Ill call it $26.50 after shipping and fees.

So as it stands I have: $49 in PayPal

and the following cards:

Bill Russell World of Sports AUTO
Harper Purple Refractor Paper
Randall Cobb Contenders Auto
Tom Brady Fleer Tradtion RC
Weeden Auto GU R&S

Thanks for reading and I hope you are all enjoying it as much as I am!

Great progress so far! I'd be thrilled if essentially for $1 I got a Bill Russell auto, Randall Cobb auto and a Weeden auto/gu!

Sorry been taking a break from this adventure. Its rather hard to find a high end card at a good price.

But if only I had $300 at this point. I got 2 spots in crazymj's exquisite break and pulled the MJ. That would get me about 2 Bill Russell Exquisites.

Thread about the MJ is coming soon, but I thought I would let my supporters know first.

My prediction is that you'll have no problem raising the money but will struggle to find someone willing to sell a Bill Russell Exquisite Auto

Shouldn't have a problem getting one with the 2011-12 Exquisite release.

Quite a few sold for under $100 on eBay.

I would want a older Patch Auto from Exquisite of Bill Russell versus the newer ones.

As for the next trick up my sleeve, I bought this beauty.

I don't know how the seller accepted the offer, but he needed the money badly I guess.

Transaction 13:
Bought the following for $150 Shipped:



I am sort of speechless. First one ever of him, and cannot wait to get it in hand. I might just end the journey now :-)

I saw one sold for $175 with bids 2 weeks ago, you definitely should be able to trade up though!
