PERFECT3

A while ago a bunch of cool Twitter folks tweeted out about the PERFECT3 discount on eBay. Basically, spend $3.01 and get $3 off. So I bought the following two cards and got them both for .99 cents as they both has free shipping. I'm happy with them.

1988 Topps UK Minis John Kruk, #41

1991 Ballstreet Darryl Strawberry, #1

Nice! The back of this card is hysterically dated. The value of the card may well have been at its peak in 1991 for after that Strawberry was a little too ripe and began to decay.

I'm sure I had the Kruk when I was a lad. But this Strawberry is new to me completely.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Guess it explains why Ballstreet was around too long. Although I just saw an issue at the flea market this morning... so they're still floating around our hobby.

    1. Bad prospecting on their part! Did you pick anything up?

    2. I did. Purchased some old Becketts and Topps Magazine issues from the guy, because they were cheap.

  2. Oh man, that "investment recommendation" on the back of the Strawberry card. What a wacky time to be a card collector.

    1. I don't either for sure but I've seen it in the Trading Card Database a bunch and so it kind of was taunting me. I showed that card who's the boss!
