Gone too soon
I do a great deal of buying and selling in order to position myself to get something else that I would rather have.
This is an ode to the ones I let go of too early.
Prizm basketball rookies. (Had several 10s stacked of the 17 class and a few of Trae and Luka. Pictured is a Taytum rc I was thrilled to get $60 for
1963 Fleer Lance Alworth PSA 7 - this one is not that bad only has slightly over doubled since I sold. Hope to upgrade to an 8 or better eventually
2017 Prizm DeShaun Watson - I could not believe someone was going to pay me $90 for this since silvers were base RCs in fb for 2016 and 2017. Sold others too cheap but kept backups of them
2014 Topps Chrome Update Betts I think I got a little over 200 for it after his Boston MVP year
1971 Topps Joe Greene - I have no idea of what compelled me to sell this. Have not been able to find a suitable replacement
2011 Bowman Chrome Draft Mike Trout. It was a self sub he had just gotten injured.. think I got like $200. Just dumb
- 1966 Philadelphia Dick Butkus. Another head scratcher. Sure I would like an 8 but I also would like a new house. Think maybe got $400-500 for it
- 2001 Topps Drew Brees. Self sub. Decided at the time all I needed was the Chrome rc. Compound the stupidity in that he is my favorite player on the one team I have loved my entire life. Plus I sold for $100 (which I thought was great at the time for a plain Jane Topps RC)
- 1986 Fleer Michael Jordan. I do not really collect basketball. I did have all the Fleer Jordan’s at one point. Figured why not sell it and get a few other things that fit my collection better. Think I moved it for 1500. Oops
- 2017 Prizm Mahomes - Full disclosure I hate this guy. I self subbed after buying raw for under $1 I would have kept but I was using the cash to finance another purchase of a card I was buying back got $350 cash. A month or so later it was $800. Now I don’t even check
