Got a couple of sweet cards from sportlots for $25.50 for the pair. Individually each one is normally at least $25

Both appear to be the cut from the box versions. The '62 is better cut as you should be able to see.

yeah with their 1,2,3 auctions most of them start at 25cents. This particular pair the dealer started at the price I got them for. In the regular selling section of sportlots the price for commons starts at 18cents the absolute lowest price sellers can set a card at.

One thing you do need to be aware of though with sportlots is many of the sellers love sending stuff in PWEs which is fine when buying one or two commons. I haven't had big problems with it but a time or two I've had a not-so common card almost ruined by the seller using a card-saver sleeve and taping the opening shut instead of using a regular toploader.

Fortunately these were sent in a regular bubble mailer. It also helped that I had won a few other of this sellers auctions so they were forced to send everything in a bigger package. tongue.gif
