EBay Shopping Spree!

Alright, so last night I went a little crazy. I was online searching the net and I wanted to check on the status of I card I have been watching… and things went a little crazy from there. Watching one card led to another… and I began to bid… and then… I did the worst possible thing. “BUY IT NOW”. At such low prices, this was my downfall…. It wasn’t the cards itself. The most expensive was about 2.00, it was the shipping that killed me. By next week I should have received all my Ebay cards and this is what I will be the proud owner of:

1996 Fleer Metal Universe
2000 Metal Hitting Machines Die Cut
2000 Flair
1996 Topps Laser
1996 SPX
1997 Pinnacle Certified

MAIL DAY!: New Additions

Yesterday, when I got out of bed, I had a good feeling that it was going to be the day that I say hello to my new Jeter’s and Hanley’s; but by the time I got out of work, I had completely forgotten about all the cards. Cut me some slack, people. I was exhausted! After work, I had to run some errands, you know, go to the bank, pick up the munchkin, so on and so forth; and then I get a call from my husband. “Babe, you better hurry, there is a package here for you.” My eyes lit up, I dropped everything! I almost forgot to go pick up my son!!!
When I got home, I ran to the counter… and there was no envelope. I ran to the dresser in our bedroom… nothing. “Hi honey, I was just kidding about the package.” I had never been so sad and mad at the same time. I felt like a little kid. I was pretty bitter. Within minutes, after my little temper tantrum, Mario came up next to me with my Jeter binder and a nice bulk package from WhiteSox Cards. I was beyond thrilled! …and I felt a bit guilty for the tantrum; but boy! I’ve never torn through an envelope so fast!
Just want to say thank you for the awesome Jeter’s. Just one double, but everything else I didn’t have. Now, to complete the Jeter puzzle from 2006 Upper Deck “Play Ball With Jeter”. I have the letter E, I need the other 4 letters! If anyone has them and doesn’t want to hold on to thm any longer… send me an email! 🙂
