A Pair Of Recent and Cheap eBay Purchases: Baron Davis and Luca Sbisa Autographs

A pair of recent pickups, and cheap pickups at that.

This Baron Davis auto is pretty sweet for a couple of reasons. First, it's an on-card auto. Second, it features Baron in his UCLA attire. Third, Davis has an awesome beard now, and I'm a man who appreciates good facial hair and sick beards. For a buck twenty-nine from my LCS's eBay store, it's even sweeter. Also, this is one supremely aesthetically-pleasing piece of cardboard. I absolutely love the design of the 1999-2000 UD SP Top Prospects Vital Signs set of signatures. All in all, a nice addition to my UCLA PC.

I'm a big, big, HUGE Luca Sbisa fan. I was stoked when the Ducks acquired him in the Chris Pronger deal, and with Cam Fowler, the Ducks have the makings of a dynamite blueline for the next decade, especially with some great reinforcements on the way in Matt Clark, Sami Vatanen, and a handful of other guys with upside. Also, when you routinely see stuff like this, it's hard not to like the guy. A 99 cent winning bid and two bucks to ship it my way.


  1. Thats an OUTSTANDING pickup on the Baron. Beautiful card.

  2. Thanks Wes! I was stoked to get it. It had been listed at least a couple of times previously, but I guess the buyers never paid up. Their loss is my gain!

  3. My friend is a huge fan of Sbisa... she's been in love with him since she heard he was born in Italy... one of only three to play in the NHL.

  4. Haha, my fondness for Sbisa is a bit more hockey-related, but any Sbisa fan is a friend of mine!
