The title pretty much says it all. I'm going after a very rare and expensive card over the next few months so I am going to need to build up some significant paypal (as in, like 4 figures worth) to have a prayer of landing it.

Essentially any card marked FT in my org I am willing to sell- I am even considering moving some nice MJs that are on the fringe of my PC, such as a 1998-99 black diamond sheer brilliance extreme /23 and my MJ auto (2012-13 sp authentic letter auto /23, both are bgs 8.5).

In other words, feel free to peruse my org and either send a trade over with whatever you might be interested in buying, or shoot me a PM if you'd rather do that (or if I don't have the card marked FT since it's currently PC).

Everyone I currently have trades going with (cough TBARN cough Smile ), no worries, I will avoid selling anything you have earmarked in the trades!

I hope everyone is having a great holiday season. Thanks in advance for looking!
could use your Iguodala #/25
I think you might need to find Queequeg. Wink
As suggested earlier, I will be selling some nicer stuff from my PC to try to obtain the card I really want, so here are some pics of the nicer stuff along with some prices. Feel free to make an offer, these aren't 100% firm there's some wiggle room, but the prices I put here will be lower than when I list them on the 'bay. Would love to keep them in the beckett community if possible!

All of these prices are delivered, btw.

You make me want to sell some so I can get your Bird/Magic. If you still have in a couple weeks I should have the $200.
I am so close to the amount you want for the first card in my paypal account. I have about 145 in my account, so I am wondering if you want a card to go with it.
Lol good luck with your white whale!! I haven't added the Jim Jackson to my Org yet because it hasn't come in. I am waiting for it to arrive from China. But that is cool though, I don't have any problems adding it to the trade. But the Dual JSY isn't available.
Sounds like you are going through what I did a couple months back to obtain the henderson logoman auto. Shelled out quite a few kobe pc cards and got it. Best of luck to ya.

Thanks! I figure worst-case scenario if I can't pick up the white whale (it's on ebay, ends in just under 4 days and the bid is already WAY higher than I thought it would be at this stage...I figure it will go for $1000-$1300) I can upgrade my MJ auto because I want one of him in a Bulls uniform even though they tend to cost more. I will also likely succumb to my wax-busting nature for at least one box if I have anything leftover!

Update also: Thanks everyone for the responses thus far. The sheer brilliance extreme /23, Bird/Magic dual and MJ auto are all gone! So the "big ticket" stuff, I guess, is mostly spoken for, but I have lots of stuff in that $8-$30 range in my org that's begging for a new home...every little bit helps so if I have anything you might want don't hesitate to get ahold of me!
Another update bump and some more dipping into the PC to sell stuff!

The sheer brilliance /230 BGS 9 is gone. The MJs below are all FS, prices listed. Again, maybe a little wiggle room, but not much as these prices will be lower than their ebay listings!

1994-95 SP Championship Playoff Heroes PSA 10- $25
1995-96 Metal Slick Silver BGS 8- $9

1998-99 Molten Metal Xplosion BGS 9- this one I REALLY like and will be tough to get from me- $78

Thanks again everyone!

EDIT: Diamond Dominance is gone. Remember if it's not pictured, but it's in my org, it can probably be had (for a price haha). Offer away! Smile
