Thought I would take a few minutes to review some of the Phillies collectibles I recently followed on my eBay Watch List...
1971 Opening Day at Veterans Stadium Program
Auction End Date: 6/13/12
Ending Bid Amount: $17.50
Number of Bids: 7
Comments: Must have program for any paper collectors. This edition was unscored and in good condition. Based on other lots I have seen sell online over the past few years, I would estimate the value for the program at $20, so at $17.50 this auction was a deal.
2004 Sportsclix Phillies Team Set
Auction End Date: 5/30/12
Ending Bid Amount: Did Not Sell
Number of Bids: 0
Comments: Created as part of a game, this set has the classic names of the early-2000's Phillies: Lieberthal, Thome, Abreu and Bell. There are nine Phillies in the base set, with "B" set inclusions of Thome and Kevin Millwood. I have a couple of these, but do not have the full set. I was interested to see if anyone bit, but at $6.99 (+$3 s/h) this one went unsold.
1967 Phillies Safe Driving Team Set
Auction End Date: 6/8/12
Ending Bid Amount: $33.55
Number of Bids: 3
Comments: This is a great odd-ball set from the '60s. It contains 13, 2 3/4" x 4 1/2"cards. I actually bid on this up to $31 - wish I would have gone a little higher. A true sign of the times that the set sold for less than $50 - oh well.
