I don't do ebay too often. It's not that I have anything against the platform, but most of my online card purchasing is on COMC. I like paying only one shipping fee, and being able to build a larger order.
But last week I was poking around on Ebay, I don't remember why but probably researching something, and I came across a lot of 50s cards that included not one but 5 of the cards from the 1953 Topps License Plates set. This was one of the few Topps automotive sets I was missing, and it's the one I've been chasing the longest, since I first learned it existed probably about 15 years ago.
I bid on and successfully won the auction! They arrived this week, when I was dealing with a terrible amount of pain from a bad tooth that I ignored too long. (The worst pain I've ever felt, and I know pain since I live in it 24/7/365)
License plates used to be a really popular card topic, but then just stopped after this set. I think it's the most recent example of a license plate set, despite the fact that it was the second or third produced by Topps in a 5 year period!
However, that was not all that came in this lot...
There was also a card I needed but have not scanned yet from the 1956 Topps Jets set, and one that turned out to be a duplicate from the 1959 Sicle Air Force set.
Not bad considering I paid $3.95 for the lot. The shipping actually cost me more!
Now I just need an example of the Topps Sports Cars set...
