Outside of my Scoops Carey cards, I didn't have any T206 duplicates until this one arrived from COMC last week. I picked this one up over a year ago. I was willing to pay $20 for it because it's scarcity ranking is 71, per T206 Insider. I relisted it with a ridiculous price figuring nobody would buy it and I'd eventually have it shipped home. It's home now.

As mentioned, this is my second copy of the card. It's obviously in poor shape and not as visually appealing as my other copy.
However, that copy is graded "authentic" because it's trimmed. I'm also not a fan of cards in slabs, unless it's a high price card or I have another reason. I ask you, which of the two would you prefer to have in your collection, and why? I choose the raw copy, but I'm sure that many will disagree with me. I'm interested to hear other bloggers' thoughts.
I've decided to try selling on Sports Card Direct again. Hopefully you'll take a look at my page and see if there's anything you're interested in. I can always sell off the site and ship in a PWE if you're only looking for a card or two and don't want to pay $3 shipping. I'm going to start listing more cards daily. It's time to get out of a lot of my stuff.
If you shop online and haven't signed up and used ebates yet, you're missing out. I also use it on eBay to get money back from purchases there. Between referrals and cash back, I've gotten over $150 in a year. FREE CARDS! Another $40 was depostied into my Paypal account last week.
