Yesterday, Once A Cub featured a post about what appears to be a killer Craigslist success story - 35,000 cards for $50 or best offer. Regardless of what he finds, that's a steal that, at the very least, will pack trade packages for YEARS. So I decided to search Craigslist in the DFW area to see what I could find.
Uh, yeah....it is a bit ridiculous.
So ridiculous, in fact, I decided to devote an entire post to them for your amusement. So, without further ado, let's get to the show!
First up, how about a 1990 Upper Deck complete set still sealed? It will only set you back $65!
Next, 32 junk wax cards for $50! Helluva deal!
This one isn't so much the price, but the description. "1000's Baseball Cards" it reads, yet doesn't show a single baseball card.
If the $65 was too much for the '90 UD set, here's an '89 Fleer complete set for $55. DEAL ALERT!!!
Here's a lot of 8,000 cards from the late 80's to early 90's for $150.
However, after much internal debate and consideration, the award for most outrageous asking price goes to this seller, who believes his collection - better described as an ode tot eh junk wax era - books for $30-$35,000, and he is willing to sell it to YOU for a low, Low, LOW price of only $3,000!!!
So there it is, hopefully some good laugh material for you this morning. I'm not trying to be rude or mean, but these things are ridiculous.
