What eBay Hath Wrought 27: Homer and the Heavy Hitters

It's been a long time since these arrived, but I was able to get a few more of the cards I needed for the 2013 Topps Archives Gold parallel set. Homer Bailey was one of them; but he isn't one of the key big-money cards in the set. Mike Trout I got a pretty good deal on if I recall correctly, and I am pretty sure I also got Jeter and Rivera at well below the going rate for their cards.

I am now at a bit of a sticking point, with 8 cards left to finish the set. Manny Machado, Shelby Miller, and Dylan Bundy are all priced around the internet at ridiculous levels. Ryne Sandberg, Ken Griffey Jr., Joey Votto, Robin Yount, and Stan Musial are all out there too, but I just can't stomach the going rate for them, either. They aren't quite as bad, though. I could probably bag all five of them for the price of one Machado.


  1. I might have Sandberg. I'll check and let you know.

  2. It would be pretty neat if you had it. I am now down to six cards left to complete the set.

    1. I found it. It's #21/199. It's the only gold I pulled and you're welcome to it if you still need it.
