It's been a long time since I've blogged but I haven't had much to blog about. I significantly curbed my card purchases, well at least in my eyes. So I haven't really come across anything interesting until now.
A few weeks back I bought a few packs of ticket to stardom to see how I'd do. Sometimes packs are like lotto tickets. You buy the $1 scratch offs and you might win a free ticket, $1 or $2 but every so often you'll get that $20, $40 or $100 ticket. That's the one we're always looking for.
Well, needless to say I pulled my first 1/1 card. At least that's what Topps says it is.
While I was excited to pull the card, I'm a skeptic at heart. So we look up 2009 reagan on eBay and see what we have:
This one is available on ebay
And these have already sold
So 1/1? Doesn't seem like it. Not sure what makes my card a 1/1 vs all the others that have sold on eBay. It's a rather disappointing end to something that could've been epic and exciting for me. I don't believe in artificial 1/1's. If a card is someone's jersey # that doesn't make it a 1/1 anymore than any of the other numbers in the sequence.
I'm sure one of these days I'll pull a 1/1 card that's unique and exciting. Either that or win the lottery, whichever.
