Bargain bin

Today's card is number LL-41 from 2001 Donruss Classics Legendary Lumberjacks set that I just received in the mail a couple of days ago. It includes a piece of Rafael Palmeiro's bat.

Nice looking card overall. I like the design and the head shot of Raffy is a good one. The back of the card is little more than a certificate of authenticity along with a picture of the bat the chip was taken from.

Perhaps the nicest thing about the card was the price. I managed to pick it up on Ebay for $0.99 total including shipping. I will take Rangers game used cards all day long for that price.

Excellent snag! "Raffy" is one of the players I collect in my non-Tribe collection. I've always been a fan, despite all the 'other' stuff...

I love those cards as a buyer. Hate them as a seller! :)

Thanks for the comments guys. This snag was the result of an experiment that I have been trying on Ebay to see what I could pick up for $1 or less.

Its good news, bad news when you can get a GU for under a buck delivered.

I buy and sell on the net so I am always getting both sets of news.

Nice card.

I did feel kind of bad for the seller with the ending price and the free shipping. I figure though that most of the sellers have most of their cards end up high enough to make up for the occasional one that slips through.
