Part of my ill advised 1989-90 Hoops autograph project consists of checking eBay on fairly regular basis for new listings featuring players from the set who have either passed away, or those who are still living but who's autograph can't be obtained through the mail.
Other than a bunch of what I feel are overpriced cards, these searches don't usually yield too much. However, sometimes that old saying about persistence paying off, does seem to hold water -- as was the case earlier this year, when I came across these:
The seller had these listed separately (along with a bunch of other signed 80's/90's base cards) for I don't remember how much apiece, but after making an offer on both of them, and using the eBay bucks I had -- the final out of pocket cost ended up being $15 for each, which I thought was pretty reasonable considering Magic has never been one to sign TTM, and I can't imagine a scenario where I would have some of encounter with him in which I would be able to try and get both of these cards signed.
Thanks for taking a moment to look at my page.
