I recently purchased a group of photos listed on ebay that were taken from a scrapbook.

I was negotiating with the seller for the remaining photos when one of

the photos I was needed for the group sold. (he had everything listed BIN)

I would like to see if anyone from the forum may have

purchased the photo and if they would be willing to sell it.

The main reason I want the photo is because it's one of the only ones that

actually pictures the vet who put the scrapbook together.

I know this will be like finding a needle in a haystack, but I figured it's worth a try.

 

Here's one of the photo's from the group I have:

Here's the photo I'm looking for that sold on 9/17:

I was able to get 8 photos and I believe 2 others were sold.

Thanks! I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the images once I received them.

I would love to have the "Sad Sack" photo to go with the group. People don't particulary like to part with things they just bought, so my hopes of ever seeing that photo are pretty much zero.

 

Unless I missed something, I looked through the seller's completed listings and didn't see where any others had sold.
