Should Have Waited One More Week

I am a firm believer in delayed gratification when it comes to baseball cards.  More times than not, I do not run out to the store or shop on the internet for the latest card releases.  It can be hard seeing the new cards on blog posts or EBAY, but a majority of the time prices for the new cards are inflated.  One of my saved searches on EBAY is for Cardinals autographs under $5 delivered.  A lot of those are prospects autographs.  One popped up last week for $3.99 delivered for a player I did not have a certified autograph card from.

This auto is from 2016 Bowman Chrome, a set that has been out for a long time.  It arrived on Tuesday.  On Wednesday, I get a private message on the Bench trading site offering the same card in trade for a low dollar auto of mine.  O well, at least I did trade my card for another auto that a collector I owe needs.   


  1. I guess patience is a virtue after all - I wish that I had more of it myself!
