HORRORS of War.... The start to my auto Collection. the one that ebay ends everytime
well after seeing this card pulled from another member of this forum I thought it was very interesting historical auto, but knew I'd never be able to get it because of other collectors of this set who have bigger and deeper pockets then me.......
...Then after reading a epic, 5 page, critically acclaimed (maybe thread on here talking about it), thought it would be pretty neat to own.
...and watching its journey from its original owner, on the forums here, to the second....on and off ebay,,,,,
...and then by coincidence ,a good customer of my local LCS (the second owner) obtained it,,,,,,
...well, he tried to sell it on ebay once with a super Super Super high BIN with 20% of proceeds going to the Jewish fund (which btw, is the ONLY way ebay will allow such items to be sold with them not ending it)...still with an outrageous BIN it received offers but no takers.....
...Then,twice more he tries to list on ebay without any donations to charity, only for it to be taken down twice again,almost immediately,,,
...well over the weekend the customer eventually gave up and wanted some $ to move on to another collecting adventure so i waited him out and yesterday we we able to agree on a price and Now its the start of my horrors of war auto collection,,,,,
,,,,,,love it or hate it,,,,,,,
