Topps gave a very cryptic hit about the surprise in this tweet...
And the hunt was on. You wonder just how many ended up in the trash from the first several days of ripping before the hidden treasures were discovered.
Of course, I was on the lookout for the Darwin Barney card. On August 20 it was listed on Ebay. I immediately put it on my watched item list, set my snipper, and I watched. Coming into the final day, the top bid was only $2.25. I was cautiously optimistic that I could get the card for a reasonable price.
On the final day of bidding, the price sky-rocketed. The card sold for $93....waaaaay above what I was willing to pay.
I will have to settle for pictures of the cards borrowed from the listing.
