Black Friday – Cyber Monday shopping has become an American tradition. For many shopping with bargains on their mind, these days may be as anticipated a Christmas Day is to a young child.
In fact, Black Friday – Cyber Monday discounts and events may be most coveted by those who truly believe Holiday Shopping is a contact sport. But that’s just a hunch!
While Thanksgiving represents giving thanks, eating a huge dinner surrounded by family and friends, and reflecting on what we’re grateful for,
Alongside Thanksgiving, the days of Black Friday – Cyber Monday mark the beginning of the Christmas season, when millions of seemingly ordinary Americans begin contemplating the presents they’ll buy for those they love. Or work with. Or maybe even just as friends.
Usually by the time rolls around, the serious shopper has already been planning. Many may have a strategy akin to fighting a war.
Cheap televisions, clothing sales, and electronic/household appliance deals run rampant from coast to coast.
But what if you have a boatload of money in your banking account? What if your idea of holiday cheer is treating loved ones to extravagance?
If you fit the profile – but want to save the Black Friday – Cyber Monday hassles and overcrowding, here are some items that will knock your socks off.
And secure your place in Amazon Shopping history!
Black Friday – Cyber Monday Sports Gift Idea | T206 Christy Mathewson HOF Portrait Piedmont Baseball Card – Price: $454,000 (approximately)
UPDATE: SOLD OUT!
Christy Mathewson was a Major League Baseball right-handed pitcher, who played 17 seasons with the New York Giants over 100 years ago.
Compared to a limited edition Honus Wagner card, this one is a steal at just over $454k. For the lover of baseball history. For the buyer that REALLY wants to impress THE baseball lover in their life.
The T206 baseball card set has a storied past. They only circulated for three years between 1909 and 1911.
Printed by the American Lithographic Company (in New York City) using a six-color process, T206 cards were packed inside of not-so-kid-friendly packs of cigarettes distributed by the various brands of the American Tobacco Company.
T206 cards have a relatively small dimension of 3.7cm x 6.7cm. What they lack in size – they make up for in stature. Only thirteen have been judged to be in perfect condition.
Like fine art or perfectly preserved fine wine, T206 cards in great condition have the most value.
The T206 Christy Mathewson HOF Portrait Piedmont Baseball Card may not have been as valuable as a Honus Wagner T206 – the most famous baseball card in the hobby. Or this set of Yankee great Mickey Mantle cards (Price: $363,639.99).
But it sure makes one heck of a Black Friday – Cyber Monday purchase! Imagine the Amazon review you can leave!
UPDATE: The famous – or infamous – Christy Mathewson HOF Portait baseball card has been SOLD! Stay tuned more more information!

I have no idea who this artist is, but under the Consider These Alternative Items header on the page, there are images of nude women in swimming pools selling for $400 each!
Sea Action by British painter Montague Dawson brings the sea to life – right in your living room, den or basement!
Montague Dawson was actually one of the important nautical painters of the 20th century. Often depicting clipper ships from the 19th century, Dawson also depicted ships from other centuries as well.
He was no One Trick Pony!
Dawson had no formal art training, but began to draw as a child. As an adult, he developed his illustration skills at a commercial art studio in 1910.
The Sea Action, like many of his nautical-themed paintings, depicts the beauty of the clipper ships sailing along a brilliant blue ocean.
Dawson’s work is displayed at both the Royal Navy Museum in Portsmouth, United Kingdom. As well as in the National Maritime Museum of Peekskill, New York.
If you thought that Sea Action is costly- worry not! Most of Dawson’s nautical paintings are sold for six figures – depending on the size and medium of the artwork.
Although the current price on Amazon is listed as $245k, you’ll save quite a bit with a modest shipping cost of $4.95.
