RE: MJ maildays! new scan 7-29! - buckunteer - 07-29-2013

I lucked out on this one big time. I was doing a "Michael Jordan auto" search multiple times per day on the 'bay. This one was first up on the newly listed for a buy it now of $350 when I ran another search a few days ago. I clicked on it to put it on my watch list, and the price immediately went to $300. Free shipping, came in that one-touch holder too. Now I would rather have an old school and/or Bulls auto, but there was no way I wasn't pulling the trigger for that good a price! I bought it immediately.

Believe it or not, after all the stuff I've bought (Magic/Bird dual, all of those Mitches, Mullin auto, etc.) I STILL had about $75 in my paypal account after this purchase! That money is now gone though with one more SICK MJ add that will be here in a couple weeks, overseas shipping...so impatient for it haha.

And it does feel pretty awesome to have an MJ auto, particularly one that isn't a sticker so you know he touched it, as bizarre as that probably sounds haha. Maybe down the road I will try to pick up an old-school one and sell this as my starting point, but for right now I will enjoy it!

I will probably send it in too, since you asked. I think it's a 9. Not sure how the auto will grade. It's decent but a bit of the M goes off the letter onto the white, and he's been getting sloppy w/ his last name the last couple years. UD is wearing him out haha.

Thanks for the comment man!

That is a steal man! 300 for a Jordan auto is a great price! What card did you buy from overseas?

I'll leave that as a surprise...but it's numbered really really low!

Ha ha thats fine. I ask only because I got outbid by 1 dollar on a card from overseas so I was just checking to see if you beat me or not. But if your card is serial numbered that it wasnt the same card.


RE: MJ maildays! new scan 7-29! - buckunteer - 07-30-2013

Gotcha. And seriously...it's numbered REALLY low haha. Nice pickups in your thread as well Nick. Those old school Jerry West selects inserts are tough to find in even half-decent shape!

Did you pick up your first 1/1 Smile If so that is awesome! You do not have to tell me though. Yeah, I had all 4 but they were pretty rough. I picked up each of the BGS 8.5's for 6.99 from the same seller. Not too bad IMO.

Gosh that auto is a beauty! Can't wait to see your 1/1 Smile

First off, if you haven't, please check my page 7 update...I miraculously picked up an MJ auto for $300 delivered and my Rodman Grand Finale sale money was still in my paypal so it covered it all!

Now onto today's remarkable update...my first MJ 1/1!! Enjoy!

I was so stoked to pick up an old school 1/1 MJ! They made platinum parallels of all 90 of these cards, so they aren't as desirable as a standard 1/1, but I am definitely not complaining! Not sure why it wasn't just slabbed as authentic since that little die-cut piece is a little rough which is why it got an 8, but I'll probably leave it as is.

I have one other 1/1 in my PC, it's a Ted Ginn autoed printing plate for my Ohio State football PC. This one is my favorite though Smile

Thanks for looking!

A 1/1 is always a 1/1. Great pick up.
