That's sort of how I feel about some cards that I recently purchased off of eBay. Now prepare yourself, because what I'm about to show isn't suitable for everyone.
There's no sense delaying the inevitable. Feast your eyes on this bad boy...
How addicted to cardboard am I? I'm so addicted that I went out and purchased an autographed memorabilia card of Tracy Hackler. Yup... you read it correctly. I've officially lowered my cardboard standards to the point where I'm collecting cards of Panini employees.
This card eventually led me to chasing down three of his co-workers:
How much can you expect to pay for autographs of Panini employees? I'm embarrassed to admit this... but I spent a total of $15.43 (shipping included).
In my defense... it's important to remember that these purchases were made during one of those bi-polar moments.
On one hand, I'm excited to own a quartet of Panini employee autographed memorabilia cards, because they're something different and unique. However part of me thinks that this quartet of Panini employee autographed memorabilia cards are silly and the epitome of "cardfoolery".
Oh well... that's who I am as a person, teacher, and as a collector. And while we're on the topic of bi-polar collecting, here is today's question of the day:
Are there any cards that you love and hate at the same time?
Happy Monday and sayonara!
