Because of this thread, I randomly went onto ebay yesterday just to poke around. I don't have any carded vintage and, but plan to start when I have better cash flow. Anyway, sorry to not have the link, but I found a 12 back stormtrooper with a BIN for $50. It was in decent shape with rough edges, but in a case they would have flatted out. I seriously must have missed it by 30 seconds because it was just listed and already bought.
Turns out, a guy was getting rid of some of his carded stuff and was listing a new one every 15 - 20 minutes. I kept refreshing, but I couldn't get any, as soon as they got listeded, someone was able to buy it before I could click on it. It was like trying to win tickets on a radio station. Among what he listed was a 12 back Leia in excellent shape for $110 BIN, Lobot, an At-At driver and Teebo for $50 BIN each and an Ugnaught in excellent shape for $30 BIN. Some day, I will get good deals like this.
