Sometimes You Just Have to Change Things Up

I have done a eBay search for Virdon every day for years now. (and ever since I have had a smart phone with an eBay app it has been more like 30 times a day)  Speaking of checking for Virdons on eBay...

Okay, I'm back.  Like I said I search eBay every single day.  Four or five years of searching eBay and I had never seen a 1975 O-Pee-Chee Virdon, not once.  I even started to open all the Topps Virdon auctions to see if they scanned the back of the card and it happened to be an O-Pee-Chee and they didn't notice because the fronts look just the same.


The other day I thought "I wonder if someone listed it as the yankees team and didn't mention that it is a Virdon?"  A quick eBay search of 1975 yankees O-Pee-Chee and there it was.  Not only did I find multiple copies of the card there was one with a .99 BIN.



Five years of searching for a card and it is finally mine, I just had to change it up a bit.

The other day I mentioned that I had some "things" changing.  If you are a long time reader you probably know that two years ago I moved from Missouri to Arizona.  My current change isn't quite so big but just as scary.  When we moved here my wife opened an accounting office and has done super.  The business has done so well that she makes way more money than I do now.  Well Friday is my last day of work for the Maricopa County Health Department.  Starting on Saturday I will be working at the account office with my wife full time.  It is a big step having out entire family income tied to one single thing.  I haven't had much bal l card money in the last few years and I this year I will probably have even less again but I think in the long run it will work out for the best.

Best of luck to you, I'm sure it will work out well! By the way things got kind of crazy on this end and I fell off a bit but I'm still interested in getting a trade going if you are...

Good luck Adam! Also wanted to check to make sure you got the package I sent a few months back, was probably 40-50 cards. Just want to make sure you got it. I am inventorying( is this a word?) my duplicates and will get together another package soon. I also need to update my want lists as well.
