One More Update on the Quest for the Series II Six

No, I did not capture the Johan Santana card. And, if history dictates based on this last auction for it, I won't be capturing it any time soon.

Please take a look at the auction that just recently ended for card #661 for $399.99. And please note who the buyer is too. If that eBay screen name does not send shivers down your spine yet, it will when I tell you who it is.

For those of you who don't know, this is the same guy who bid up and won many 2006 Topps Alex Gordon cards. This is the same guy who used to host Sportscenter in the early-mid 90's. This is the same guy who now hosts his own show on MSNBC. Yes, boys and girls, this guy is none other than Keith Olbermann!!!

Thanks Keith, now I won't be able to get that Santana card I need to complete my set.

The quest has been put on hold until further notice. There is another auction up online for the Santana card at the moment, by the same person who sold the first card to Mr. Olbermann. The seller is the same eBayer that has beaten me twice on auctions for this same card, and he thought to put one on the market to see what happens. Guess what. IT happened. Prepare for prices to shoot through the roof. And now, the seller promises that he won't be buying anymore of the Santana cards. Just in time too. Go figure.

So, you still think these gimmick cards are a good idea now?
