Way back in October I took part in the big card show being held locally.  We haven't had a card show this size in a couple years and so it was nice to see some new tables set up and spend a weekend hunting down some cards.

I even set up (for the first time in over a decade) and had a blast.  Made a decent chunk of change which has helped me buy some cards for the pc.

Like this one.

2014/15 Upper Deck
#GJ-TL Game Jersey

These "cheap" jersey cards always give me a rash when it comes time to chase them down.  I don't really want to buy them on ebay because I end up paying 5x the card amount in shipping.  It's just not worth it.

So I bide my time and wait....and wait....and search for in hopes of finding it locally.  And I tracked down this copy in one of the half price boxes.  Can't beat that.

I was bragging that I finally landed this oh so tough card.

Got home...went to cross it off the list, and I noticed this...


Well, it looks as if I already bragged about tracking down a card that look so similar to this one.  I couldn't even luck out and get a different jersey swatch color (for once white would've been nice).

So now I have a double.

I'm an idiot.


  1. Buying a card that you already had does not make you an idiot. Absent minded maybe, or in my case old and forgetful but not an idiot. You should blame Upper Deck for making different year cards that look the same as being the idiot. Plus like you stated previously, it IS one of your favorite Upper Deck jersey designs ever.

    1. Ha ha. I like your style.

      I just think back to when I picked up this card and was bragging how patience pays off and that low end jersey cards are local finds only these days. I was so proud to find it.

      It was a funny head shaker when I realized my flub.

  2. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!! If you only had a list!
