2000 Fleer Greats of the Game Kirby Puckett auto. Got it and traded it at 25 bucks. Big mistake.

I can honestly say, I wish it was me who bought that from you!!! When I was buying Puckett autos, I felt like they were overpriced in the $100-$150 range, now I wish I had snapped them all up.

Ugh…there have been so many!

Most painful was I got upset with the hobby and sold my entire collection in early 2020 that included these cards….

- 2016 Flawless Ruth/Gehrig/Pennock relic /5
- 2015 Topps Rookie Sensation Mike Trout auto /25
- can’t remember exactly which one but Jeter auto /149
- 2018 Topps Acuna “bat down” RC
- 2018 Topps Chrome Update HMT55 Juan Soto Pink refractor PSA 10 and 4 base PSA 10
- a decent stack of Vlad Jr, Tatis, Soto, Acuna RCs
- 1993 SP Derek Jeter PSA 7
- Donovan Mitchell Prizm base, R/WB and green RC PSA 10s
- 1984 Fleer Update Puckett RC PSA 9

And about 500 other cards…

For all of $1200.

The Pink Soto alone is almost that now by itself.

Yeah, when my sons and I pulled it, it was on the low end of the autos in that set so we thought we were lucky trading it.

I'm going to work this from the other side of regret, it is no less regrettable as a card transaction from the seller's point; but, this deal is coming from the side that has benefitted. One day in 2014 I was on a graphing site I belong to. A member was selling a 2014 Topps Heritage minors card #175, signed in person, by River Dogs outfielder, Aaron Judge. He would have been new on the scene and I had barely heard of him. Also, the card was priced on the slightly higher side for someone barely known and certainly unproven at that point in time; but, I took the chance and sealed the deal for a whopping eight dollars. For ten more dollars I got the card JSA sticker authenticated; and so, I will tell you this, folks... I'm in it deep for $18.00.
To give some gravity to this card deal, an unsigned raw 2014 Topps Heritage minors Aaron Judge card #175 on feebay peaks at $45. with some selling less and some even more. I saw only one signed card and it was graded with an asking price: $405.00 shipped before fees/taxes. Had I been that person who sold this card to me, I would remember this one, and I certainly think he does....

Timing is everything although I wish I still had in PC I feel I sold at the right time.

Kaline RC I think it was a strong 6

2019 archives Récord breaker auto red border #/10 Ichiro

And of course the both the silver and gold versions of 2008 ud premier ruth/gerhig/musial/Cobb jersey patch. I wish I held on to one of the. I did get $1,000 each back then but there are demanding high premiums right now. This is life!

Those multi GU with a couple of the big guns from the early years are in high demand now for sure. Those were some dandies!!!

here is a regret regarding this site. I regret the ridiculous, draconian and totally unnecessary/pointless censorship blocks on here. WHY do they even exist?
You cannot write out the names of any of these actual cards!

In my college years I had the following:

1986/87 Fleer Basketball set w/ stickers (NM+)
1955 Topps Roberto Clemente RC (VG-EX)
1956 Topps Mickey Mantle (VG-EX)
1954 Topps Hank Aaron RC (G-VG)

Sold the Clemente and Mantle along with a few other cards for $350 and bought a bunch of boxes of 1991 Studio,which I was able to flip for close to double what I paid so there's that. Sold the Aaron to my boss,also in 1991, because he was a Braves fan for $150. Lastly sold the Fleer set for $500 in around 1992-93 to pay for truck repairs that in the end,I didn't even need.

I had the 59 topps All Star high #’s complete I bought off a neighbor for $25… 10 years later my brother got pissed at me and threw them out of the 2nd story window in a downpou.
Still sick of how much they’d be worth today, still haven’t forgiven him 45 years later

I’ve had my fair share.
2001 Donruss classics Pujols Auto, sold it for $100 and the matching standard rookie for $50… guy told me when I sold it he was paying me too much… yeah right

Then trading my Miguel Cabrera rookie autograph on here years ago for a Kasey Kahne autograph because I could never just pull one.

Then looking on the internet, I think the cubs feel the same way I do.
