You have a theoretical $1,600 to spend on eBay for cards. Give yourself about 30 minutes and post the cards you would buy.Now, I could probably find a single item that would complete my contest entry, but what fun is that? I'm going to limit any single auction at $400. And to make it simpler, I'm limiting myself to Buy It Now auctions. That means I'm going to have to find at least four auctions, probably more. And I'm rounding up the BIN price to the next dollar. None of that nickel and dime stuff here. And it would have to be cards that I want. So, timer on...

Okay, pencils down. I think that I spent just over half an hour on this. And if my math is correct, I came in right at $1,600. I love spending fake money.
That was fun. These are all cards I wouldn't mind having in my collection, but I'm probably not going to be spending that sort of money on them.
