A Strange Coincidence

A few weeks ago I got an email from asking me for my address to send me some baseball cards and telling me about a new pricing tool they had on their website. 

About a week later a package showed up in my mailbox. I thought it was interesting that the return address is not only in Phoenix, where I grew up and not far from where I currently live, but it's just down the street from my very first job. And when I say just down the street, I'm talking about less than a mile on the same street. Now, I know they weren't there when I was working there back in 1999-2000, but I still thought it was a strange coincidence.

I filmed myself opening the box and reviewing the cards, but I was using the YouTube app and it shut off mid-way through, so I tried it again and it did the same thing. The third time I finished with the cards before it turned off, so here you go.

I know the contents of my box were very similar to that of a few other bloggers who received a box, but it was fun to open and I enjoyed the cards, especially the autograph.

I do want to talk about the pricing tool. It's called the BCS Database and allows you to search an item in various categories like collectibles, toys & hobbies, stamps, coins & paper money, entertainment memorabilia, and baseball cards. The search results include both active and current ebay listings. The thing that I like the best about the site is that for sold listing where the best offer was accepted it will show you what the offer was. It's a free tool, which is great and I'd encourage collectors who buy on ebay to give it a try.

Thanks again to for the cards and some day I'll need to make it to you shop!
