Another deep dive, ended ebay auction find. marine_1994 just returning to collecting is working the Topps Chrome Camo set, offered to swap me, which I willingly accepted. I was able to send a Dez Bryant Camo for his set as thanks. Another fine addition.

Thank, Jim!

So today's additions also has an investigative story. Found a lot that was sold on BO by krav4747 to TPence1970 on 1-31-13. In it was listed 2012 TOPPS CHROME PURPLE REFRACTOR #144 Clay Matthews (264/499). After contacting Ty, he said he already sold it on ebay. Searching feeback, the only Purple Clay Matthews he sold was numbered 284/499, but sold to coachlew10. Now coach is on Beckett, so I tracked him down there, only to confirm in fact that it was 284/499. Bummed, I let Ty know that it was the wrong number, but he replied that he checked his 2011 & 2012 Topps Chrome Refractors and found two of them.....and they arrived today.

Ty, I appreciate the help!

This one makes 35 of the 2012 Topps Chrome Colored Refractor 264 "variants"..

I found this next addition on ebay and placed my bid. I then get the dreaded "Your bid has been cancelled". Of course, thanks to our android phones, we receive these messages in a more timely fashion, thus I panic. I quickly send an message on ebay, asking why and explaining why I need this. After hitting send, I refresh my browser and get a PM on Blowout from a member stating they saw my name as the bidder and realized whom it was. They ended the auction, so they could send to me freebie style......boy my heart settles.

So today's "variant" addition comes from the unfortunate files of newbie ebay seller and PWE shipping.....

Bought this on June 12th, paid for it immediately, received appropriate "Fast Payment" feedback. On June 20th, I still hadn't received from "that state up North" and saw that they had received a neutral feedback for a damaged card shipped via PWE. So, I inquired about a tracking #, stating that I paid $2.07 for shipping and I would hope not to receive via PWE and no tracking. No response, so I open claim and subsequently I am refunded my money. I leave appropriate negative feedback (1 of 3 that they now have), on June 30th. Well today the PWE shows up,

.....in a penny sleeve, NO top loader wrapped in "previously" used bubble wrap (meaning no bubbles left for my wife to pop).....

This card popped up on March 26th with a $299.99 BIN/BO. I made a couple of generous offers and were immediately declined. I sent a message via ebay to the seller for a price. I cited current sales, he cited potential. So we were at an impasse....

A month later it was re-listed, we exchange messages and no dice.

A second month of 30 day listing and no sale. We exchange messages and again, no dice.

A third month of 30 day listing, with reduced price and no sale. We exchange messages, he offers several different prices, I hold my ground of original final offer. It is finally accepted. I paid more than current sales, but I am happy.

Over time, I developed a personal relationship with Gary and genuine concern for him and less about cards. He is getting better, I was recently able to send him a couple camo set needs and a Bronco surprise pack for his son. I received this one for my efforts.
