Purchases you regret
Posted 11 March 2011 - 03:30 PM
Back in 1996 Upper Deck came out with the first (I believe) jersey cards. I was AMAZED I could actually own a piece of a game used jersey. So I scrimped and saved, I HAD to have one. Took me forever to save my pennies, but finally I had enough money. I purchased the 1996 UD Tony Gwynn jersey card and I was thrilled. I spent my whole collecting budget on it, $300.
Yep, you read that right, $300.
DUMB, DUMB, DUMB!
A few years later my girlfriend and I split and I sold a large chunk of my cards and that Tony Gwynn card was one of them to go. I think I got maybe $10-20 for it. OUCH!
I picked it up again this week for the whopping sum of $6, just to have it again.
Anyone else have a dumb purchase they want to share?

I have a lot of purchases I regret not making...Like the last 2 Nationals when I found a good deal and walked off to think about it only to come back and the card is gone.
I had that happen a few times on Ebay with BIN's. I'm not one to just jump on what I think is a good deal unless I am SURE on what I am buying. So I do research first, which at times has bit me in the butt. But in the long run, it has saved me some cash and headaches.
No one else has a bad purchase or two they want to share?

My biggest losses have probably come from the wax I busted in the '90s as a kid; however, in reality, I've made more on busting over the last 4 years than I've lost. The streak cannot go on forever though.
