A few months back I posted a 1999 Star Rubies Jason Schmidt /50. I loved the card and knew other Buccos existed in the set, but hadn't seen any hit eBay since I posted back in March. Well, a few weeks back the Jose Guillen was put up for auction.
1999 Fleer Skybox Star Rubies Jose Guillen /50
The total was just a shade below $10 which was similar to what I paid for the Schmidt. Originally I thought I had overpaid, but after reviewing completed auctions that is within the range for common players such as Guillen. Maybe I could have found it for a few bucks cheaper down the road, but securing card now outweighed the desire to save a few bucks. Plus with these type of cards it is never a guarantee that they will pop up again.
Thanks for reading.
