I'm glad you stayed away from the guy, because anybody pressing you that bad for a side deal is questionable to begin with, not to mention you would have no recourse if he hosed you and didn't send the card.
Good luck on the 3/5, I'll bet you'll get it for $20 or less.
In general, when people ask if they should buy a card, I always say go for it — if you want it bad enough and can legitimately afford it.
But in this case, I think you were very smart to avoid it.

I'm not making fun of you, it's just since I've gotten back into collecting I've noticed how many people will only collect one obscure player, it's funny.
