Cards I Ain't Got No More - Baseball

 We delve into the world of baseball in my cosmos of regret.  Here are some of my favorites that I sold on e-bay,





I got this card as a surprise insert in an Upper Deck tin.  It had their version of "Old Judge" cards in it.  Also got some nice autographs and memorabilia cards in the tin but this one stands out as the first Playball card I ever owned.






Rookie cards of 2 future Hall-of-famers.  I collected the heck out of this set as exhibited by all of the gold parallels I have listed on my trade page.


I took a chance on some packs of Royal Rookies just in the hope of getting this card and then I sold it.  Why?!?!?!?  I still have the regular card.




I'm a sucker for mullti-sport sets and it was nice to own a bat piece from the last .400 hitter.



What a great card.  It's even numbered 60/60 while Mr. Cub wishes Topps a Happy 60th.  Practically perfect.

I had no idea who Trout was when I sold this card.  I think I may have gotten 10 bucks for it.  (Forehead slap!)  I do have the regular card of this plus a Topps rookie card so I am not hurting for Trout cards.

Cards I Ain't Got No More - Hockey

Yes.  Hockey.  I collect everything.

My dad grew up a Red Wings fan so I inherited the fandom.  This is just pretty.

Gold, on-card autos just pop.


Bought one box of Upper Deck series 1 that year and lucked out.


Needing money made us sell a card of our favorite paper from our local team.  When we used to have a local team.

I paid some top dollar for some UD Black boxes but love the set.

Cards I Ain't Got No More - Football

As with the basketball cards there are some football cards I wish I still had:



I bought a whole box of Bowman a few years ago and got this.  I think I sold this for what I had paid for the whole box.


 I've always like these mini-helmet cards.


 It's a sticker autograph but you gotta love Deacon Jones.



 Not a huge fan of this Greats of the Game design but love the autos.  Also had a Staubach and a Lott.




Might be the best card I ever pulled from a pack.

I Don't Get It

So today, in the Falcons game, we learn that a 10 yard, incomplete, forward pass can be a fumble and be the difference in the game.
