eBay Friday: Fairfield Memorial Library Postcard

Blasts from the past, available to purchase on eBay.

This edition of eBay Friday features a “handcolored” postcard, dating back to the early 1900s, of the Fairfield Memorial Library.

According to the seller on eBay, the card has writing on the front and back. As you can see, whoever sent the postcard inquired “What’s the matter with Yale.”

Interesting. I guess we’ll never know the matter the postcard sender was referring to.

Anyway, the bid for the card currently stands at $7.88.

As far as buying/saving on eBay goes: If you see an item that you want listed in auction format, send the seller a message asking if they will accept $x to end the auction early and sell the item to you. May be telling them that they would not have to wait as long to get their money (they would probably know that, but it still might help). If that does not work, use a sniping service such as Bidball.com to bid for you. It'll bid in the last few seconds, helping you to save money and avoid shill bidding. If there is a particular item that you are looking for, and especially if it is relatively rare on eBay, use a site like Ebuyersedge.com to set up saved searches. You'd get an e-mail whenever a match is listed. Great for "Buy It Now"s priced right. You can use the price, category, exclude Word, etc. filters to narrow down the list of results that you receive in the e-mails. Try a misspelling search site like Typojoe.com to hopefully find some deals with items that have main keywords misspelled in the title. Other interested buyers might never see them. Then, if the item is listed an auction format, after a few days of no bids (hopefully anyway) send the seller and offer to end the auction early and sell the item to you. They may worry that no one is interested, and take whatever they can get.
