How very strange, and even more so after I have just been told that all the sets have been sold!

Did you question them much?

Is this to keep you quiet?

Thanks!

I really don't know whether it was to keep me quiet - not that I was going to make a lot of noise anyway - but it is certainly an interesting one.

By the way, John had last night offered me the Collingwood cards at a price I offered him, but I now think it would be fair if anyone else wanted those Collingwood ones then they could have the opportunity to buy them.

John's been a great help and support to me this past week, so I'm going to help him out with a donation as a way of thanks.

very interesting .... i still havent got the unsuccessful one, anyway, you should snap it up while the opportunity exists, maybe someone didnt pay up.

They've now been paid for and should be delivered tomorrow. Was told that I was one of "lucky few" to be offered a second chance as they were almost all paid for the first time around. Hard to know from talking to them whether my previous email had anything to do with getting a set now, but also hard to believe it wouldn't have either.

Well at least you got a set, well done. I think they may have kept your name on top for any set that wasnt paid for, if you can beleive that though. :lol:

I havent heard of anyone else yet getting a second chance.

I got mine today #14 wonder if the number was allocated when the sets were allocated as I am sure I was one of the last to pay up 3:30pm Friday for me.

Anyway I have a fair few of the cards still if interested, I am sure I probably missed a few private messages too.

pm or email me

I've received my set - #44.

After thinking about it for some time I've decided to sell off most of the cards and keep some players. I don't want to profit from my good fortune so have decided I will be listing the cards at a fair buy-it-now price to cover my costs, then will donate some of the proceeds to John and the rest to a charity.

Hi all. What happened to those cards which were pulled off eBay before end of auction? anyone know?. I suspect the lot were sold privately outside of eBay. Would be nice to know what price was achieved.

I noticed that too. I guess someone made him an offer.
