Absolutely beautiful cards. That Burgess is one of my all-time favorite cards. I just love the pic/pose.

I checked VCP on those. They're from Greg Bussineau's auction earlier this month. The history on pricing is amazing. The Burgess which sold for $990, originally sold on eBay on 10/18/11 for $1,451. The Drews was $930 and originally sold on Memory Lane 12/18/11 for $2,406. The Meyer was $870 with no other sale on VCP, meaning it could have been a bump up from an 8.

So either you got some outstanding buys or the market has fallen completely off the table. A third possibility is that sellers should steer clear of some auction houses.

Same exact cards, those first two.

If you're giving it away, I know at least two people who wouldn't mind having it. I don't know about cammb, but I'll even reimburse you the shipping.

Awesome cards, its also a lesson why you have to be smart even with VCP prices, I see that a lot with the AH's (some a lot more than others) as well as you will see trends like that from the ebay consignors.
