Perhaps a few of you got caught up in these SEA RAIDER oferings from EBAYID: " SwedishPickers" on ebay today.

Here is the recently closed #45 the " MAP" Card :

Late last month there were other SEA RAIDER "lows" in Nicer condition from EBAYID: " Jackhumpus "or " JackChumpas"..Also located in Sweden?

Just thought it strange , all of these Sea Raiders coming from Sweden.

Comments? Opinions?

Not sure how it relates to non-sports, but I have sold quite a few Golden Age and Silver Age comics to collectors in Sweden over the years, mostly those having a "war" theme or related to one of the Disney ducks (Donald, Uncle Scrooge, etc). The Scandinavian countries in general are known for being more into the culture of comic books than much of the rest of Europe, with the exception of the UK.

Perhaps some of that collector enthusiasm spills over into non-sport cards? Off the top of my head, I can't recall ever having sold any cards to buyers in Sweden, but my history isn't as deep with non-sports.

Funny Mr. Mark! ( gave me a grin this am )

Geoff: Well, whats really surprising is a few of these hi numbers , in better condition, sold way below that "Swedish Sea Raider Orgy" that took place yesterday.
Go figure.
That's why in my original post I mentioned being
" Caught up " (wink,nod)

BTW O/T : Would'nt " Swedish Sea Raider Orgy " be a great name for a Band, Book or Movie?
Eh...Wait... I think they already have the movie! (sigh)

And here I thought Geoff was the one bidding crazy dollars for the #38 and #40. I thought I might have had a chance on those few that I still need, but most went for crazy money as Charley pointed out. I was able to pick up the #48 for a meager $230. I have kind of accepted that the going rate is $100-$300 for beaters. At this point I have been working on this set for so long and I am so close that I'm willing to pay stupid money for beaters. I'm down to need ing two cards; #38 and #45. I have a blank back #45 but PSA wouldn't give it an authentic grade. If the flag card is going to go for this kind of money I will never complete the set, which is okay I guess. I'm less compulsive about being a completist at this point in my life I guess.

Charley: Agreed on all points, and I await the draft of your thus-titled novel.
Daniel: I sort of thought I was bidding crazy money, but apparently not. There was a sports.ha.com lot with a pair of Anne Bonnys that went for a relative song a few months ago, I should have doubled down on that although she is the easiest of the five I'm missing (26-28-38-40-46!)

Just got my one Sea Raiders card I won from Swedishpickers. It was a low number, low price card, and I'm very happy with it. I hope all that won cards from this dealer are as happy. -Jack J.

Sonja, we have twice had e-mail conversations regarding your two #45 cards; there is no need to start a third. Thanks though.
