If you get a chance check out http://www.voiceofthecollector.com/ and his $500 Philadelphia Football Card Experiment. Here’s his post from earlier this week. Let’s help him get to his goal…
FROM – Voice of the collector
Last weekend we had a huge garage sale. My mother-in-law has been diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease and we moved her into our attached rental unit. This is her second downsizing in 2 years. She had an auction and a previous huge tag sale at the time of the original downsize.
The lady that ran her tag sale, also does estate sales. She stopped by our garage sale with a box of older musty cards, most from the 1970′s. I gave her $20 for the box and upon closer inspection, I found these buried inside.
Yes, that’s right. 1967 Philadelphia Football 2nd year cards of legendary Bears greats, Gale Sayers and Dick Butkus. I already have a Sayers and there were actual two of the Butkus.
Some of you may remember a recurring blog post by a shop owner by the name of Bob Brill and his Brill Report. He conducted what he called “The $10,000 Experiment” in which he started with a single purchased item for $10 and sold it at a profit, reinvested and repeated until he hit his monetary goal. I found it fascinating and miss it.
So I figured despite not having a shop with people walking in to willing to sell me various items, that I’d give the experiment a try of my own, albeit on a smaller scale. Taking just these two cards, I’m going to sell them on eBay and use the money to reinvest in other things I think I can flip and repeat until I reach $500.
With everything I have going on, I hope I can commit to this, so wish me luck and let the games begin!
Topps has released its 2013 Allen & Ginter last week with surprises inside packs and inside the actually box. Which I like the idea, but once again also can give a black eye on the hobby. Make sure when you buy those boxes, that the top doesn’t have creases in it. The box I review here had a crease along the top of the box but was wrapped and couldn’t have been tampered with but might have been felt up like a pack at a retail store. Here’s a look at some of the pulls from my box of 2013 Topps Allen & Ginter.
