I found an Ebay auction at the tail end of November for some serious Vogelmojo and pounced.
Tangent Alert: I can't claim "Vogelmojo" as my own word creation, but AJ used it in a comment recently and now it's part of my vernacular. Vogelmojo! It's almost as wonderful as Vogelmonster! Almost.
Okay, back to the international purchase. I had a little competition when purchasing this card, but not nearly as much as I was expecting. Perhaps the lack of interest derived from the location of the card?
Taiwan. Wow. That's a long flight away from U.S. soil.
Mini Rant Alert: I paid $15.50 to ship a 100-count box of cards to Canada the other day from P-town. Yet, it only takes $4.00 to send a bubble mailer from Taiwan to the USA? What is wrong with our postal service? Yeesh.
$6.04 for a Topps High Tek blue autograph parallel numbered out of 50! So what if it took about two weeks to reach me. It's a sweet card!
