Billy Hall 2/1 7 days c/o home
Signed Patriots top 20 card and sent me 1994 Upper Deck
Thanks much Billy hope to see him at the stadium again in the future


Still never received back Emiliano Escandon mailed back in November. Have a bad feeling about that. Mailed him 2 top 20 cards with one to keep.

Just saw your question! Either Sportlots or eBay, but usually Sportlots is cheaper (though condition is more of a crapshoot).
Yeah I'd purchased several old cards from Sportlots and they were in terrible condition, especially the centering. I don't so much mind dinged corners but ripples in the cards and way off center cards... that's annoying. Now I just go to eBay if I want an old card in decent condition. I just bought this old Lance Alworth card to get signed, it's a real beaut. Just a tiny bit off center.

Not without heartbreak... I've been easing my girlfriend into the hobby and she's been writing former Packers to then give to her dad. Forgot to include...
  • Brett Favre, 0/3, all returned unsigned (shocking)
That's a real magic trick there. Wow.

You get what you pay for on Sportlots. There are also some sellers that are much better at assessing condition than others. But eBay is definitely safer!

Lighting doesn't strike the same place twice - shut out today, with an RTS from Dave Righetti (c/o Giants stadium) to boot. Better luck to everyone else!
