I'll begin by saying that I'm an idiot. I've displayed that trait so brilliantly in the past.
Case in point, my wonderful Upper Deck jersey card fiasco. Good times.
Well, I'm here to say that I've outdone myself and I have nothing left to do except share my glorious stupidity.
It was just back in March that I was oh so excited to share my latest and greatest Linden pickup.
A gorgeous black jersey square and a stunning sticker auto on some shiny gold foil of a card. No...no logos please as we are not allowed to use them. And just for fun, let's number this bad boy to just 15 copies.
Like I said.....stunning.
Well I must have liked it so much that not 3 months later I decided that I must have another.
Did I mention that I'm an idiot?
So do I keep the 04/15....dubbed "The Original" or do I swap it out with the 05/15...dubbed "The Upgrade"? Can I return both copies and just go back to bed? Why do I have a checklist if I can't seem to look at it when the time comes to...you know...look at it? Just some of the many burning questions that have developed as a result of this "happy accident".
I even did a quick history search on eBay. Yup, I bought both of them....fair and square. I'm glad to say that I paid less (albeit slightly) for the second copy than I did the first. Small.....SMALL....REAL SMALL consolation.
So.......anyone need a beautiful example of a card /15?
Mental note....update your master checklist and LOOK AT IT before you buy any cards. I don't need to be building a secondary Linden collection.
