The Great Ryan Kalish Chase: Episode 2

I promised I would make my rounds on eBay looking for Kalish autos. And, I have. Now, I come to you with good news and bad news.

Bad News:
The 08 Bowman Chrome auto is slipping out of my grasp ever so slightly. I had one lined up for a steal at less than 10 bucks, $8.50 to be exact if I remember correctly. I had the high bid into the last minute, and I was about to celebrate my victory of this steal. Then, 2 or 3 last minute swipes came in, rendering me virtually helpless.

My high bid: $11.00
Final Amount: $15.00


I would check the completed listings on occasion just to see what the autos were going for. Some were selling for under 10 bucks. Why did I end up bidding on one that got swiped for 15 and I could've had one for a third of that? WHAT THE FUCK'S UP WITH THAT?!?!?!?!?!?!

Even base cards were at times absurd. Bidding on his Bowman Platinum base card with a $.99 starting bid,

Final bid: $3.32

Why would you ever want to pay over 3 bucks for a base rookie in a shitty product? AGAIN, WHAT THE FUCK'S UP WITH THAT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

There is good news. I did happen to pick up a piece to add to the collection. No, it's not the 08 Chrome auto, but it's pretty decent, and it's a Kalish auto. Check this bad boy out:

Yes folks, that is a Ryan Kalish auto from Topps Pro Debut Series 1 (that overpriced Minor League stuff put out at the beginning of last year)! It's not the Chrome auto, but it's still a Kalish auto.

Final price: $8.59

Scoreboard me!

In the next episode of The Great Ryan Kalish Chase, we will continue to hunt for the 08 Chrome auto, and some other less expensive stuff in the jungles of eBay.
