I went a little crazy with a couple of these cards and cannot buy anymore for the rest of the month, but I am happy. No more spending my money but I do plan to gather some more cards to hit the bay! Have two up now to try and recoup some of the expenses. Two cards I have wanted for a LONG time! Let me know what you think.
Picked up both of these cards for $5 each. The Starquest isnt great, but it goes with the 3 other BGS 9's I picked up last week:
I picked up this card last week and it was a replacement:
I have the whole set of the mj star quest in 9.5 if u want to buy them
And now the major items. The first card I knew I was going to spend a lot on. Apparently BGS 9.5 is the norm in this card when it comes to graded copies. Have wanted this card for a long time!
Even though I thought the previous card would be hard to top, I got this. I bid on another BGS 9.5 the same day and lost to a selling price of $190. A hour later I searched for this same card and found another BGS 9.5 ending within the hour. The card had a starting bid of $150 with no bids. I put my bid in and walked away expecting to get sniped at the end. When I got the notification on my phone I was beyond happy. Saved $40 on this card and got an extremely great deal on it IMO.
I typically do not care to buy cards in BGS 9.5 because of the price. But like I mentioned above, it seems that with both of these cards you either buy a raw copy or they are BGS 9.5. That is all that I see on Ebay.

That along with the scoring kings were my two favorite 90's inserts. I have a nice raw version of the scoring kings but have always dreamt of having the BGS 9.5. It is just too expensive right now! Maybe I will add the hot numbers instead!

I remember trying to find a titanium BGS 9.5 for months!
Was not an easy card to find about a year ago!
