I Shouldn't eBay Late At Night

As many posts as I have seen about it, you would think that I would have known better: never get on eBay late at night. Bad things happen.

Okay, so maybe this isn't so bad. But when you see it, you will think: "What the..."

So, let's take a look:

Yeah, you see that correctly. A PSA 8 Elvis Andrus mini from 2008 Allen and Ginter.

Just to go ahead and get it out of the way, I don't know why in the hell I bought it.

I wish I could claim that it was late at night and I had been drinking. Sadly, I can't blame this card on the booze. Some of my relationships, however, are a different story. But this about a PSA 8 Elvis mini, not a long-legged red head I met at the Blue Light (FYI - red heads are my bug zapper).

I saw PSA and 99 cents, and I jumped. I simply can't resist.

But I bought some other stuff, too. 

The 2014 Topps yellow retail parallel for my growing Martin Perez PC. 

The 2013 Heritage Matty H. chrome parallel.

You see, both of these fit in my collection. Not really sure where to put the Andrus. 

Oh well, I'll chalk it up to a bad decision. Certainly had plenty of those in my life, so this one will fit right in.


  1. I don't know what to say. Sometimes eBay makes us do crazy things.

  2. Life and baseball card collections are filled with bad decisions that sometimes turn out to be great.

    That one, though...well, at least it is a mint card. ;-)

  3. I do it too.

    The worst was after my daughter was born. During night feelings I guess I would browse. All the sudden stuff was showing up in my mailbox I didn't remember buying.
