What was your biggest 'Yay!' moment?
About 6 months ago I was able to buy two TCG mounts off the AH for 75k and 80k. If my memory serves me correctly (not sure if it does) I first saw them on The Undermine Journal's Great Deals page. I did some research and the average sell price was 150k, so I made the 155k investment. If you look, you'll be able to recognize this on the first major drop on my Gold Totals page. Yikes, 155k in the hole was an uncomfortable feeling. I listed them for 150k each on a 48 hour auction, no bites. Ouch. Not even a single whisper or mail looking for a deal I got worried. Listed them both again at 150 for a 48 hour auction in the morning. That night both had sold, and I had 285k in my mailbox! Up 130k profit from two flips, needless to say, that was a BIG yay moment for me, I doubt I'll see a flip like that again for a very long time, but it was very exciting!
How about you? What was your biggest 'Yay!' moment in gold making?
