When I'm getting items on my own, I like to pounce on Ebay as soon as the set is released. I've found that the earlier I buy things, the better the price. I was able to find three of the Cubs mini relics within a day of the Ginter release at very reasonable prices.
The first card arrived in the mail on Saturday.
I've always like the Ginter framed relics. They are much classier looking than usual relics. It was a shame that Topps went to full sized cards a few years ago and kept the minis as SPs.
In the next few days I'm expecting the delivery of the Rizzo and Russell cards. The final Cub is Ernie Banks. Thus far only one has been listed on Ebay and it has an opening bid of $74.99.
I think I'll just end up with three of four Cubs this year.
