Listia Mailbag: Ricky Nolasco

I recently picked up this 2013 Allen & Ginter game used jersey card of Ricky Nolasco on Listia for about 5,000 credits.  I think that's about two bucks.  Or, it might be five hundred dollars.  I'm not sure.  In any event, it's a cool looking card.  I like how the A&G relic cards have the mini card inside the frame.  It's like a Russian nesting doll.  Nolasco was a Marlin on the card, sporting the then new Miami Marlin jersey.

Possibly My Last eBay Purchase

I scored a bargain on eBay by snagging a lot of 4 CC Sabathia cards.  I really bought the lot for the sole Yankee card from 2010 Topps.  However, the 3 Indians cards were all from brands that I don't have much of.  All of this cost me a grand total of 16 cents with free shipping.  So, why would this be my last eBay purchase?  Aside from being all around morons who ruined the site over the past decade, the powers that be at eBay decided to restrict my account from all selling because my performance level was below standard.  It's really my fault since my feedback rating was only at 100%.  Oh wait, that's the highest possible percentage from a mathematical standpoint.  So, I've decided to take the liberty of restricting my buying on the site and take my business elsewhere.  Anybody have any suggestions for a decent auction style site to buy/sell cards?

Pack Break: 2013 Topps Series 2

I broke open a pack of 2013 Topps Series 2 cards.  I didn't really pull anything noteworthy.  I did get a David Freese mini card.  However, I did notice something odd about the Jonathan Papelbon card.  It seems as though he is about to eat a large meal, possibly Bryce Harper.  If there was any doubt as to whether Papelbon is nuts, just look at this card.
