I had my eye on one particular eBay card. The seller had it listed very high, much higher than a typical autographed card of Lott goes for. I think it might have been something to do with that ridiculous eBay 1/1 numbering thing that sellers try to use. This card is numbered 25/25 so apparently that makes it more rare that numbers 18/25 or 23/25. There was no best offer option on this card so I sent a note to the seller - I got no response.
A week went by with nobody biting and the seller relisted it for a slightly lower price. Then another week went by at it was relisted even lower, close to the price I had offered. Again no takers. I had set up an email notification for 2016 Ronnie Lott cards and one morning before work I got an email showing it relisted again, this time for less than I had offer so I pounced and won the card!
Here is the card that I finally brought home:
I have picked up a few other nice Lott cards that I will share as well.
If you don't follow football cards, you may not know that Panini is now the exclusive producer of licensed NFL cards. I am a big fan of their design choices, I believe every card featured here showcases a plus design and all are 2016 cards. Too bad that we can't get some licensed Panini cards on the baseball side - that would be like hitting the lottery as well.
