HOW ABOUT THE ONES THAT GOT AWAY, LOST STOLEN OR FORCED SALE
Every time I see Roberto Clemente cards it brings back such mixed emotions, mostly sad. I had every year Clemente mint or near mint condition except for the 55 & 56 and many many non basic cards such as stamps stickers coins & large cards . I also had several Mays and Aaron's and a few albums of other star and semi stars. Long story shot the album with the Clemente's that also had the Mays and Aaron's got stolen back in 1987-1988. After that I was so disgusted I started selling just about all my cards. It did help pay my rent and extras for awhile. I restarted collecting a little around the late 1990's Collecting mostly just Kobe's and some laker team sets. I also have since started some non sports and within maybe the last 5yrs I started collecting some Tom Brady cards.
Anyone else have a story about special cards that were lost, stolen or had to sell because you had pay bills. The ones that got away.
