It started with me buying a case of this stuff. C'mon... you remember the whole Joe Montana debacle. I was able to pull a high percentage of the cards I needed for the set. From there, I turned to purchasing "lots" off of eBay. And when I narrowed it down to 8 or 9... I started to pick them up anyway I possibly could.
Unfortunately, I've been stuck on three for a few months now. Until a couple of months ago when I saw a guy selling the Matt Forte for $5. Well... here's the thing. I refuse to overpay on these cards... especially when it's "event worn". So I offered him $2.50, which I felt was fair. But he refused.
Fast forward to last week. I noticed that he hadn't sold the card. So I threw out the $2.50 offer again. And again, I was denied.
Well thanks to a combination of luck and being patient... I won't have to worry about being turned down a third time. Last Monday, I found one online for $1.50 (free shipping):
Today's question is...
Have you ever been turned down, only to find a better opportunity just around the corner?
Happy Friday everyone... and sayonara!
