Out of the seven winning bids, this card is the best of the lot. What seals the deal for me is that all four swatches are guaranteed as being game-used. That's what I want in a card. Not "player-worn," "official NHL event" or "photo shoot."
If it isn't "game-used," eBay sellers must be clear about that. When they're not, I have no problems ringing them up. It's all about transparency, if you ask me. Makes me a picky S.O.B., doesn't it?
Even though I'll file this card away in the top-shelf memorabilia card lock box, I will also remember that the shipping fee was the highest of all the winning auctions. Not a major complaint, mind you, just my entitled opinion. If I didn't want to pay it, I never would have made a bid.
In this case, I didn't mind paying a bit of a premium.
