I have come to the understanding that it really is a wise thing to either ;
1 - Keep a running record of what I am looking for on eBay and focus a little better on one or two things.
2 - Resign myself to the fact that I am going to have to learn to love "doubles" again.
I received a couple of envelopes in the mailbox last Thursday and figured I would hold on to them and open them this Sunday with my coffee. When I dumped the contents onto the table my immediate reaction was, "Uh oh, I think I need to have a talk with myself." I had these, staring back at me, in all his mustached glory.
Two identical copies of Ryno's Goodwin relic. The only thing I can think plausible is that I found the one with the blue stripe in the middle of the swatch AFTER I bid on the one with the blue stripe peeking around the corner. Nevertheless, I have two copies and having two of anything is just greedy. If there are any Cubs fans or Ryno fans out there that would like to trade for any of the other Cubs relics or Blue Jays relics from Goodwin drop me a line and lets swap.
