I've been scouring ebay more often than usual lately. And while that has mostly mean I've just been getting outbid a lot, I have added some cool pickups for great prices.Like this Starling Marte autograph. Marte has been one of the players to see a big surge in popularity and card prices as the Bucs have been winning. I usually snatch up any auto of his I can find on the low end at $4 or so, but even those are rare.
I had this one in my watch list, but it's not the most eye catching auto, so I figured I'd throw in a low bid. But winning? Probably not.
I was more than surprised when I saw that I had won for $1.25. Shipping? That nearly doubled the price, at a full $1! Grand total? $2.25.
And going off ebay's completed auctions, that's the lowest a Marte auto has gone recently by a pretty fair margin.
