@hegotgame: I want to do that, I really do, but I don't have $1500 in sv of stuff to sell in the first place lol.
I appreciate that patience, but it would be so so hard to be that patient when there are a TON of nice cards that book just $20 or so that I love the look of!
Quality is preferable to quantity, but I love my base MJs and a lot of my lower-end inserts and such too.
I am planning on buying more singles and less wax (another hurdle is my LOVE of the wax haha), but my typical monthly budget is about $150, or 4x less than your monthly budget haha. I decided to spend some coin on nicer singles since I had a nice holiday windfall, but now that things have calmed down I am going to try and be pickier and more patient with my purchases

Do you see then 2-3 times a week listed?
How often can you pick up the tuff cards to find?
BMOC,NOYZ BOYZ,HOT SHOTS,PLATINUM PORTRAITS...
Those kind of cards are hard to find at times, one month you may not see any listed at all!
Those cards i mentioned are a lot of money, but when you save up and get one, you will feel like all your cheaper inserts you could have bought are not even close to how crazy your one big purchase feels!
Do me a favour, have a go at getting one big purchase and see if your happy with it!!!
I bet my collection, once you have done it once you will do it again!
With a budget of $150 a month plus a few sales of cards you really can live without, selling maybe $200-$300 worth, in 2-3 months you could buy any of those cards, or maybe a nice MJ auto, whatever you like really!

I just HATE paying more than half of high bv for ANYTHING, so it's a struggle lol. I did just get a PSA 10 MJ as an upgrade though, 94-95 Playoff Heroes insert. Paid less than full bv for a PSA 10 so I could live with that haha. Beautiful card. I have one in a BGS 9 that I can sell now, so that'll go toward my fund! I really want the die-cut version as well. That's way up on my wish list.
I will keep you all updated, and I appreciate the support!
