I Knew Shipping Costs Have Been Increasing But Wowza!!!

All of us collectors know that shipping prices have been steadily increasing over the past few years.  And sometimes the price can vary greatly depending on the shipping company.  Just this week I sold off most of my brothers old collection of complete sets which amounted to over 80 pounds (36kg) and one major shipper was going to charge $99 while another major shipper was charging $60.  But I have to wonder if this ebay seller is really needs this much for shipping six low dollar cards?

Holy Shipping

Thanks For Bidding. Your Prize...An Empty Box!!!

Ran across this strange auction the other day.  Not sure why someone would sell empty boxes.  I always recycle mine.  Not sure why someone would buy empty boxes unless they did not read the title of the auction...and did not read the item description.  Or perhaps Topps has a promotion going where you can redeem Topps Heritage box UPC's for some special set, but I have not heard of anything like that for 2018 Topps Heritage.  Very strange unless I'm missing something.

Wow...Ohtani Red Ink vs Mortgage Payment!!!

Holy cow!  There are two 2018 Topps Heritage Real One red ink auto's going in auctions right now on eBay and one is at $2,500 over four days left!  The other one...it's almost twice that amount with three days left.  Those prices would cover most mortgage payments in the USA (including taxes and insurance escrow)!

How About a Little Ohtani Heritage Ink?

The first Shohei Ohtani action image variation showed up on ebay a few hours ago, and now the first Ohtani Heritage autograph has popped up.  It's a buy it now, so not as fun to watch as an auction and definitely not in my price range.

First Ohtani Heritage Card Hits Ebay

Well, that did not take long.  The first Shohei Ohtani Topps Heritage card is on eBay and it has jumped from an opening bid of $15 up to $47 in the first 15 minutes of bidding.  It's a one day auction, so we will know tomorrow morning what it closes at.  Find out where the bidding is:

2018 Topps Heritage is Live (Already)!

Well, the official release date of 2018 Topps Heritage is this Wednesday, February 28th.  But apparently retail Heritage is already available somewhere.  I saw this chrome Corey Seager card on ebay this morning and it looks like it was listed yesterday.  Looks like it's time to start scouring Walmarts and Targets.  No bids yet, but you can follow it's progress here:
