ot: searching for needs in collection - mrgonzodad - 04-21-2012

I just found one of my big needs in a random persons busket, and it is the only auto of the particular player this person has.
How have you peeps approached these situations, if ever?

Defintely but I have never heard back from one of them. I did find an ebay seller on PB and he contacted me but had already sold the card so I guess once I heard back. Good luck, I hope you get it!

I found a card I needed in about 5 different buckets just by searching photobucket.

As far as I know, there is no way to contact a person through photobucket so I tried leaving a comment on the picture stating I was extremely interested in this card and to contact me at my email address.

Never heard anything back.

I've never had much luck on the subject but one thing you can try is googling there bucket username and hopefully they use the same on some forum so you can get ahold of them. Best of luck!!

I needed a Topps Chrome Gold Refractor of Joe Haden and found it in a guys bucket, I commented on the pic, and finally after about a month he commented me back and said he would sell me his Joe Haden collection. So I have one success story of finding something I need from photobucket. Not to mention I got a Contenders Printing Plate and a complete Topps Tribute Rainbow and a Panini Threads "H" of Haden that I needed.

I will google their photobucket username and most time leads me to the same user name on a trade forum or ebay. I then message them their in an effort to contact them. Going through photobucket seems to take a while, however, all the electronic media are adding better means of contacting folks.
