    Oh, the pain of being outbid on a new find!

    Any chance anyone here outbid me on this:

    29Asst 92 Columbus Clippers SIGNED PostcardsAusmus, Muelens, G B Williams!

    I had no idea this set existed before seeing this auction, I only bid in the off chance of snagging a new, heretofore unknown Hensley Meulens, but now I've been out bid. I suspect it was by a Bernie Williams collector, but either way, I don't want to fight him for one card I want and 28 I don't want. If it is someone here, I'll give you $10 for a Meulens.


    Incidentally, I found there was also a similar set, sponsored by Cord Camera in 1993.

    Ah that's a bummer! Have you tried contacting the seller? Perhaps you could ask him if he would pass your name along to the buyer?

    If that doesn't work, keep an eye out as it said there were multiples of some, including him. Maybe the buyer will try to sell the dupes.

    I'm planning to do so tomorrow evening, after it is over. I really wish I'd asked him as soon as he posted it if he would break one of the Meulens off and sell it separately. I've had success with that in the past, but just didn't think I'd have much competition on these so I didn't bother.

    Or explain the situation to the seller, and ask if, in the event that you win, he will give you the name of the under-bidder. It's a win-win for both you, knowing that you will have someone you can probably sell the excess to, and the seller, who gets another bidder upping the price..

    I asked the seller to pass along a message to the buyer, he said "yes", so now I wait.
