eBay Pick-Up: Justin Upton Triple Threads Auto

I have been getting some great cards on eBay recently. Here is a 2009 Topps Triple Threads Rising Stars Justin Upton Auto numbered 90/99. The card features 2 bat pieces behind the "#1" and the "CK" and an orange jersey piece behind the "PI". I'm not sure when Upton has ever worn an orange jersey. I'm thinking it must have been from a 2009 All Star weekend event, but I'm not sure. The card looks great though and it is my first J-Up auto, so I'm really excited.

I was actually trying to get the version that is numbered to 50, but lost out at, literally, the last second of the eBay auction. It went for $19.01, plus shipping. After missing out on that one, I did a quick search and found this one. I has about three days left. The starting bid was something like $44.95, but it had a best offer option. I put in a best offer bid of $15 and put in a little note stating that the one numbered to 50 had just sold for $19 and I included the item number. I was still a little surprized that my offer was accepted since the starting bid was so high. Shipping was $2, so I got it shipped for $17.
