Doesn't everyone remember their first? The first card they purchased on eBay!
I was going through some of my cards Thursday night for several reasons. Most importantly because Mario @ Wax Heaven said I needed to have more card posts if I wanted a snowball's chance in Hell of cracking the "Heavenly Seven!"
OK, I'm exaggerating a bit, but the "Heavenly Seven" is my not-so-secret blogger achievement goal!
Seriously now, this 1992 Babe Ruth Collection Card was the first one I purchased eBay ten years ago. I know, many will laugh, but I'll admit it. I liked it. And still do really. I didn't care who made it, how (in)valuable it was, or how it had no significance to the card hobby. I think I paid a dollar for it and that was probably overpaying. But I still like it because:
- Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth, and Tris Speaker on one card was (and still is) pretty cool to me.
- The photo is taken after their playing days (obviously).
- The card highlights their Total Bases with a list of the top 20 (at the time) list on the back.
- Cobb, Ruth, and Speaker had 16,760 combined bases!
