    Boomerang Cards?

    When I sold out of virtually everything and looked to get a few of my favorites back, I checked eBay only to find one of the cards I wanted was gone. I reached out to the buyer and even with a generous offer, we couldn't get a deal done. A month or so later, it was on eBay at auction with a different seller, and I was able to secure it! It took three different sellers, but eventually it came back to me



    Have you ever had a boomerang card before? A card that you picked up, sold/traded away and came back to you? What was it, and does the back story enhance the enjoyment you have of it?

    A psychologist would have a field day with you, and I say that in the nicest possible way.

    I'm a 38 year old in love with baseball cards - what else would you expect?

    One that comes to mind is the 2007 UD Spectrum Blue Die-cuts Brian Roberts 1/1. I kept wanting to make a jersey-serial-numbered set, and that was one that I thought was feasible, though the cards are only mildly attractive. I bought several of the low-numbered ones, including the Roberts, who was the only 1/1 in the set, but quickly gave up. I had missed the release of the set, which wasn't broken very heavily, and it seemed pointless and impossible. So I dumped most of it. Then a while later another person who also looked like they had attempted the set and gave up listed a bunch, including the Roberts. So I scooped it up again.

    sometimes the chase is better, than having them.

    I sold this on October 1 2018 because I had decided no more stickers or unlicensed cards in my McGwire auto collection. The buyer listed it for sale again a few weeks ago for $500 OBO. I offered $300 and he accepted, so now it has returned home. With the incredible patches I will have a hard time selling it again. Click image for larger version.

    I wholeheartedly agree - in fact, I say as much in my book!

    Something makes me think that Mr Mouschi will have about 2,500+ boomerang cards!

    On the bright side, he can then write a book about divorce and sports cards

    Yup. Sold it after Span was traded from the Twins, picked it up about a year ago after deciding to go after some Twins patches. Can't remember what I bought with the money the first time I sold it, but I figured I had a game used jersey with 10 buttons already or so. Glad to have it back now
