A Very Happy Ending...

Last week I posted about my Big Bang Theory Seasons 1 & 2 trading card box. Well, I'm back to report a very happy ending to that little tale. My Simon Helberg Atuographed insert from the box ended on Mother's Day at around mid-morning. I was a little nervous going into the day because of two reasons.

#1 - another seller had put up the same card about 8 hours after mine and it wasn't even close to the number of bids or the amount that mine currently was sitting at

#2 - when I woke Sunday morning, my card was sitting at just over half of what the last one sold for

I was not trying to be disappointed as I realize that the odds were against me for reaching that final price at this point. But I was ahead of the price I paid for the box so I basically got my set for free.
With about 10 minutes left in the auction, it jumped to $140, so I was happy and excited to see the final 30 seconds now.

Well, with about 8 seconds left, a flurry of bids came in, low and behold:

I got the price that the last one sold for!! A very happy ending to this little adventure, and for me, easily the best pull of the year as well as my collecting hobby!!

On a side note, the other one, ended 8 hours after mine, sold for $135. He probably should not have set that one to end during the dinner hour on Mother's Day! (or waited until mine ended altogether, then posted his)

thanks for reading,
Have a GReat day!
