Original 7th Series Grime Heavy Chunks

It does have a couple of soft corners and the typical centering problems for this title but otherwise it is a very nice looking card.  I found this to be one of the toughest cards to acquire when I was completing my 1 - 16 run.  See scan:

Doesn't seem to be much interest here in the Bum Chex, Pupsi, and Grime Heavy.  Maybe I have over-estimated the market value of these?  I will probably give eBay a try if no one claims there here shortly.

The Grime Heavy may be a little high, but lack of interest in this kind of stuff here is pretty typical these days. eBay will likely bear more fruit.

I guess you are right about the lack of interest in the vintage stuff.  Hard to believe that a Grime Heavy can't even get 30 bucks:

This wasn't mine, by the way.

I still buy nice vintage stuff, but I'm pretty satisfied with my 1-16 at this point.  I definitely paid more than $30 for my Grime Heavy, but this one doesn't look much different than the one I have.

What I need to do is go over my Wacky Ads, as I know there are some I need to acquire or upgrade.

eBay is weird. The Grime you mention has gone bidless at $29.99 four times now. And it looks pretty decent. Then we have these three:

eBay auction: #161463636512

eBay auction: #121475692982

eBay auction: #151440729812

2nd one above is awful, sold for $90.

Looking close at the card the upper left of the card has a crease

Yes, but there was a time when any of the "mag 8" stickers in decent shape would bring a good price.

But look at the other examples I posted. They may be structurally nicer than this one, but at least one is horribly miscut and still brought $89. If buyers are becoming more grade conscious, I would say that's appropriate, and long overdue.

I couldn't agree more, I will tell you that in the GPK world I follow their forums.  The grade on condition, however the pay a premium for printer errors.  (statistically GPK collectors are 1 -2 generations younger than us).  My thought process is maybe printing defects don't matter to collectors as it used to.  Don't loop me in with them though I want the nicely centered no roller mark or printing dots on my wackys.  I am just trying to figure it out.  Also advertising makes a difference on final price.  I have seen on Facebook links to cards that sell way higher than same said cards with no links to them.
