2012 Sega Card Gen Cubs

I found out about the Sega Card Gen card a couple months or so ago and I picked up the Darwin Barney card for the player collection. The cards aren't widely available and I've only seen one ebay seller offer them. Just for the heck of it, I saved him in my sellers list.

A couple weeks after I got the Barney card, he listed a bunch more of these, including all eleven of the Cubs. Since I have a good experience with him the first time (I was a little leery working with an overseas seller), I decided to see if I could put together a Cubs team set--eleven cards. I set the sniper and waited for the auctions to end.

When the dust settled, I won eight of the cards. I was happy, but a little disappointed too, since that wasn't a complete set. The cards arrived within a week, and I waited for the other three to become available.

A couple more weeks later, the seller was at it again, listing almost the entire set, including all of the Cubs. I again set the sniper, though I set the prices a little higher than usual--I didn't want to have to wait again!

This time there wasn't as much action and I got all three pretty easily. I didn't have to come close to my max bids. The final three have arrived, so now I can show the entire team set.





  1. Very cool. I got the Daniel Hudson one after seeing your Barney post.


  2. Never heard of these...would like to pick the Reds up but not willing to pay the price the seller is asking.
