One 2001 Donruss Albert Pujols Rated Rookie (Paid $127.50)
The quest is finally over. After six years, I finally got my Donruss Albert Pujols RC -- and for close to Beckett LO no less! So now, I'll stop my bitching about not being able to find, much less purchase, this card.
For the record, this was my first eBay transaction in at least five years. I used to be pretty active on eBay in the late-90s and early-00s. But around 2001-02 I soured on the site as I got burned on numerous deals. So I left.
Fast forward five years, and it became obvious that the only way I'll ever be able to acquire my elusive Donruss Pujols was via eBay. So I bit the bullet and got it done.
I still plan on using eBay very sparingly, and for the time being, I'll won't be selling anything. But never say never.
