My first foray into the world of Listia

Recently I received an email invite to join Listia. I honestly have no clue who it came from. Didn't recognize the name of the person who invited my via Listia's system but I figured it was someone from the collecting blogosphere. I figured I would give it a shot and I got two nice cards to show for it.

2006 Upper Deck Special F/X 
Eric Bruntlett Green Parallel 51/99

2007 Upper Deck SPx
Yuniesky Betancourt Winning Materials Blue 003/175

Neither one of these players were/are stars. Both have spent their careers as mostly middle infield defensive plugs with Betancourt spending a little more time starting for bad teams than Bruntlett did. Nonetheless, I got these for very low amounts of credits. I believe I got the Bruntlett card for 50 and the the Betancourt for 250. 

Now that I've had some experience with Listia I'm going to use it to get rid of some of my duplicates.


  1. I also received a mystery 1000 credits. Thank you, whoever you are, out there somewhere. If you could send me 1000 minutes to wander around in Listia, hey, that would be great.

    But thanks for this post, nudging me closer to trying it out also.

  2. So far I like it. Great way to get free cards, or most anything else for that matter, in exchange for sending stuff to other people. Basically.

    Tonight I listed my first auction if you're interested.
