On April 2, 2015, an eBay auction closed. A 1969 Topps Reggie Jackson sold for $30.
The same card with two vastly different price points.
The first was once owned by former major leaguer Dmitri Young. As it turns out, he has one of the best graded rookie card collections around. His niche is high-end, highly-graded superstars.
The other card is owned by me, I consider my poor old baseball card collection to be one of the (poorest) around. My niche is low-end, non-graded superstars.
I think I got the better deal.
