WTF -- 18 Griffey cards for $7.00?!

How about this eBay auction? Some guy (who must be quitting the baseball habit...) appears to be selling off his Griffey baseball card collection.

If I were you I'd try to buy these cards, f#*$ the cost - it's not every day you can find 18 rookie and early cards from a future Hall of Famer.

Gee. I wonder who the seller is :-)

I wonder if GriffeyFan from the PI Blog will bid...

Doing a quick purusal of my old baseball cards, the only one I have is the Donruss 91 (which incidentally, is the newest set of Major League baseball cards I have). Among other odd things I have, though, was a Gregg Zaun and Randy Winn, both with the Kane County Cougars (diff years of course).

Sure would be nice, after all the pro-Gimpy blather he/she's spouted over the months...

Too bad I have all those cards. Notice they didn't include the 89 Upper Deck?

Mike L, you'll notice that, no doubt in response to your insight, the seller has lowered the initial price to $6.00. Whoever said you can't make a difference?!

Sheesh. A price drop, even, and STILL no opening bids???

WTF!?!

We have a bidder, folks! With only 3 hours to go, the cards can still be had for a bargain. Get in on the action before the opportunity vanishes!!!

Well, they went for over $10, at least. The seller was lucky there were any bids at all--some guy is selling 31 Griffey cards at a starting bid of $4, and no one even bid on them. He just relisted them today. Odd

I just bought those cards for $11.50. Thanks for the tip. I better be able to retire on those or I'm going to be angry.
