I thought this would be a good title for a segment that involves really good steals I’ve had buying either cards or boxes. Since I had such a great steal last night, I thought I would share it with you guys.
So I was browsing my Twitter messages and saw a new site out there similar to CheckOutMyCards. SellMyCardsOnline is similar in that you send in your cards to them and they post them on the site. You set your price and wait for them to sell. That’s it. COMC is a little deeper in terms of what you can do, but I digress.
I saw they had a Featured Card of the Month that someone was selling. It had a $20 price tag. My first thought was…why is this card priced at $20? Who would sell it that low? I checked eBay real quick and saw recent sales around $60. I wouldn’t resell it, but I was checking to see if maybe there was something I missed. Apparently, I wasn’t missing anything.
So I immediately bought it. Now I’m just waiting for it to arrive. Want to see which autograph it is? Well it’s not the EXACT card, as it’s no longer up on the site, but it’s the card.

An on-card autograph of one of the stars of my Boston Red Sox for the price of a blaster box? That’s a real steal. Now I just have to wait for it to arrive in my mailbox.
