I Miss Baseball Already

Happy Halloween boys and ghouls … I mean girls, yeah that’s it.  The baseball season is over, which means that we won’t see a game until March.  That’s scary enough for any baseball fan.  I was pulling for the underdog Royals in the World Series, but what can you do?  I can’t wait for Spring Training to start.   I would like to go again, but I don’t think it’s gonna happen this year.  I’m already starting to get withdrawals.  For those of you who are eager like me, here is the link to the MLB Spring Training site.  Tickets are not available yet.

So there I was innocently bidding on baseball cards on Listia when I came across a Goudey base card of Ryan Braun.  I figured I would place a lowball bid of 25 credits.  Due to my fat fingers, that bid somehow became 258 credits.  By the time I had realized my mistake, it was too late.  But lemons quickly became lemonade.  I won the card for 108 credits.  In addition, the seller threw in some pretty cool cards as a bonus.  So, now I own the card and I have a story to go with it.
