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.
I have been a New York Yankees fan for my entire life. I have collected baseball cards for over 20 years. I did take a brief hiatus from 1996 to 2004. Nine years is brief, right? I prefer cards made after 2004. I also prefer cards that measure 2.5 in. by 3.5 in. I also have a thing against baseball cards that don't feature a baseball player. I collect all teams and players, even the Red Sox.
